Osage Casino Lake Ozark

In Oct. 2021 the Osage Nation announced plans to build a $60 million casino, entertainment and hotel at Lake Ozark. The announcement said the tribe had submitted an application to the U.S. Department of Interior (DOI) for approval of a Class II gaming casino near Lake Ozark. Class II casinos do not require state approval.

The federal decision process will take one to two years to determine if the Osage casino proposal complies with the U.S. Indian Gaming Regulatory Act.

If The Osage application is approved, the DOI will transfer the casino land into federal trust with tribal sovereignty to the land and casino gaming rights that are exempt from Missouri laws and regulations.

The Missouri constitution limits the number of casino licenses to thirteen. A federally-approved Indian gaming casino does not need a state license and does not need state approval if similar gaming is already approved in the state.

Osage Casino Lake Ozark Construction Update - June 2022

June 14, 2022

The Osage Nation purchased a 28-acre site in the City of Lake Ozark, Missouri for the purpose of building a $60 million hotel and casino. The first step towards authorizing the casino is approval by the U.S. Department of Treasury to transfer the land into federal trust for the tribe. That process grants sovereignty for gaming rights on that land to the Osage Nation.

The land-into-trust application is expected to be submitted to the federal government by July. In preparation for submission of the application the tribe has demolished the former Quality Inn & Howard Johnson hotel to clear the land for environment assessments required in the process. The demolition was completed in late April.

If the U.S. Interior Department grants federal trust status for gaming purposes, the land may be used for a Class II gaming casino. However, the Osage Nation plans to seek a Class III gaming compact with the state to allow Vegas-style slot machines and table games.
