Barstow Casino & Resort

Two Southern California tribes have sought for over twenty years to build an Indian gaming casino in Barstow California.

Both tribes are federally recognized and both claim ancestral ties to the Barstow area. The Los Coyotes Band of Cahuilla and Cupeno Indians have a reservation in Warner Springs and the Chemehuevi Indian Tribe's reservation is in Lake Havasu.

A Barstow casino requires federal approval for either tribe. Since neither has reservation land in Barstow, the federal government considers Barstow an "off-reservation" casino. If approved, the U.S. Department of Interior will transfer the Barstow casino land into federal trust for the tribe as an addition to the reservation.

  2. Chemehuevi Indian Tribe of the Chemehuevi Reservation

Chemehuevi Indian Tribe Proposal

Tribe: Chemehuevi Indian Tribe of the Chemehuevi Reservation

The Chemehuevi tribe is making a second attempt to build a casino in Barstow. They originally applied for a casino near the Barstow outlets in 2006, however their application was rejected by the U.S. Bureau of Indian Affairs in January 2008. Federal policy required the casino to be within "commutable distance" of their reservation.

Soon afterwards the Chemehuevi purchased 40 acres of land along Lenwood Drive in Barstow. Now the tribe is seeking approval from the U.S. Department of Interior to transfer that land into federal trust to qualify as reservation land.

The entire approval process is very lengthy and will take years. It requires a new environmental impact study, approval by the City of Barstow including a public services contract, approval by the Bureau of Indian Affairs, a gaming compact with the State of California, and final approval by the U.S. Department of Interior.

Chemehuevi Tribe Chairman Charles Jones seems very optimistic about his tribe's chances this time to gain approval for a new casino in Barstow. "I expect we have an 80% chance of getting the casino completed, maybe in three to five years' time," he told The Victorville Daily Press.

The proposed building site for the Barstow casino is 23-acre parcel adjacent to Tanger Factory Outlets Mall. The project would cost $160 million and would create 1,065 construction jobs and 1,000 permanent jobs.

On June 20, 2016 the Barstow City Council unanimously approved an agreement with the Los Coyotes Band of Cahuilla and Cupeno Indians to build the casino and finance the municipal services to support it.

Barstow Casino plan revived by Chemehuevi Tribe

July 28, 2021

The City of Barstow, California and the Chemehuevi Indian Tribe have negotiated an updated Municipal Services Agreement (MSA) to compensate the City for additional services costs that will be incurred by the opening of a planned tribal casino. The agreement replaces the original MSA signed in 2005. It was passed last week by the City Council in a 4-1 vote.

Four months ago the Chemehuevi Indian Tribe asked the City to update the MSA as a step to re-establish its commitment to build a casino in Barstow. The move is a challenge to the Los Coyotes Band of Cahuilla and Cupeno Indians, whose plan to build a Barstow Casino & Resort has been stalled since 2014.

The Chemehuevi Indian Tribe owns 40 acres of land for a casino on Lenwood Drive in Barstow. The new Municipal Services Agreement would require the Tribe to compensate the City for the additional costs incurred by the casino for police, fire, emergency and other services. The Tribe will dedicate 2 acres of land for a new fire/police station. The tribe will also pay half of the costs for construction and for the operation of the station. It will also provide job training to give local residents the opportunity to seek the new job positions.

Barstow casino fight continues between two tribes

After years with no success, the Chemehuevi tribe of Lake Havasu has resubmitted its application to build a casino in Barstow. The location is 40 acres on Lenwood Drive.

Los Coyotes Band of Cahuilla and Cupeno Indians
The first proposal for a Barstow casino came from the Los Coyotes Band of Cahuilla and Cupeno Indians in Warner Springs, California. The tribe has pursued hopes for this project for years going back to the enactment of the Indian Gaming Regulatory Act in 1988. However, the tribe has been unsuccessful to date in getting approval from the federal government to proceed with the casino.

Chemehuevi Indian Tribe
The second proposal for a Barstow casino comes from the Chemehuevi Indian Tribe of the Chemehuevi Reservation in Lake Havasu, California. The tribe claims historical rights to the Barstow area based on ancestral records. Their project is in its initial application stage and will take 3-5 years to gain federal, state and local approvals.
