Eagle Mountain Casino

Eagle Mountain Casino was opened June 1, 1996 by the Tule River Indian Tribe of California. This early casino consisted of three manufactured trailers containing slot machines, table games and a snack bar. It was located on the Tule River Indian reservation, which was established in 1873 on 90 square miles outside of Porterville, California.

The trailers were later replaced by a 70,000 square foot casino with 1,200 slot machines, 11 table games and a bingo hall. See the present-day Eagle Mountain Casino information.

In 1990 the Tule River Indians invested in 40 acres near the Porterville Municipal Airport. In 2016 the tribe applied to the U.S. Interior Department to approve plans for a casino and hotel on that property. Final approval was granted in December 2020.

Groundbreaking at the Porterville site was held April 6, 2021. The casino will open in the first week of December 2022, and the hotel and convention center will open in 2023-2024.

This casino relocation is only made possible from the continued support, dedication, and hard work from the Tule River Tribe, the exceptional leadership from Eagle Mountain Casino, and the incredible support from political and community partners."

Eagle Mountain Casino relocation final approval approaches deadline

September 12, 2020

The U.S Department of Interior has a deadline of October 2 to approve the Tule River Tribe's Fee-To-Trust application to relocate the Eagle Mountain Casino near the Porterville Municipal Airport.

A letter from Tulare County Board of Supervisors was sent last Tuesday to U.S. Rep. Kevin McCarthy, House Minority Leader, requesting help in seeking immediate and favorable action from the Interior Department.

The letter was signed by Tulare County Board Chairman, Peter Vander Poel, who included these statements:

"As we understand it, the only remaining action is the administrative process of issuing the decision and taking the land into trust," Vander Poel wrote. "The deadline for this action is October 2; otherwise, the Tribe would need to re-start the entire process.

"Because of the importance of the Relocation Project to the local community, we request that the completion of this process be a priority and completed as expeditiously as possible. The Relocation Project will result in several direct and indirect benefits to the County, including job creation, road improvements, a payment in lieu of taxes to the County, and an increase in economic development activity surrounding the Relocation Project."

The relocation of Eagle Mountain Casino can begin upon completion of the fee-for-trust land transfer. The new casino will have 105,000 square feet of gambling space, restaurants including a buffet and food court, a sports bar and a 1,700-seat concert and entertainment center. A hotel will feature 250 guest rooms and suites and 29,000 square feet of convention space.

Eagle Mountain Casino Relocation Delayed

August 31, 2018

Eagle Mountain Casino Relocation

The Tule River Tribe had hoped their federal application to move their Eagle Mountain Casino to property near the Porterville Municipal Airport would have been approved by now. However, the decision has been delayed by a new Environmental Impact Review process, which now requires more time issue a report.

Tribal Chairman Neil Peyron issued this statement yesterday:

"A comprehensive environmental impact statement has been prepared to determine the impacts of the project on the local economy, infrastructure and the environment. We had hoped that the draft environmental impact statement would be released to the public this summer. However, the federal government is implementing efforts to modernize and streamline the entire environmental review process and we are working through the new process. We support the efforts of the federal government to improve the environmental review process and reduce processing times. We believe that the new streamlined process will eventually expedite the review in the long run."

Eagle Mountain Casino relocation approval expected in July

February 24, 2018

Eagle Mountain Casino Porterville

It is expected that a final decision will be made by the federal government will be made in July over the request to relocate Eagle Mountain Casino.

The casino is owned by the Tule River Tribe. Members of the tribe and their associates met with Chamber of Commerce in Porterville for Government Affairs Meeting. This meeting gave the tribe a chance to present updates on the proposed casino relocation.

The tribe wants to move close to the Porterville Municipal Airport. The property is 40 acres and must be moved into trust before the casino project can move forward. The new casino would be multiple floors and cost between $180 to $200 million to build.

An environmental impact statement has previously been prepared and submitted.

If approved, the new casino would offer a casino of 105,000 square feet in size. There would be a hotel with 250 guest rooms. There would also be restaurants, lounges, convention space, meeting space, a parking structure, and administration offices. Also, there would be an entertainment event center with 1,700 seats.

530 new job positions would be created to work in the casino operations. That would be in addition to the over 600 current casino. Current casino employees would be given the option of transferring to the new casino.

There is also interest to build a new fire station on the proposed property.

It was announced that Office of Indian Gaming Indian Affairs is currently reviewing the matter.
