Michigan’s Gun Lake Casino to Break Ground on $300M Expansion
Gun Lake Casino in Wayland, MI is breaking ground on a huge expansion this week.
For those that know me, you know my love for casinos. I absolutely love trying my luck at slots, table games, and more whenever I have time to sneak away to a casino. Now I have more of a reason to plan a trip towards Grand Rapids to visit Gun Lake Casino.
Tomorrow, Thursday, May 19th, 2022, Gun Lake Casino will be breaking ground on its new expansion. An expansion with a price tag of $300 million. The project, which was announced last April, is said to transform the current location into a hotel resort with all the amenities.
This $300 million plan includes a 250 room, 4-diamond hotel, complete with luxury suites and rooms for guests. Visitors will also see a new full-service spa and a three-meal restaurant with this expansion as well. It doesn't end there though. The expansion will also include a fully enclosed, glass-domed pool and nightlife entertainment space. During the day, guests will be able to enjoy one of the three pools. Each pool will accommodate a different crowd with one being for families, one for guests 21+, and one for VIP guests. At night, the pool area will come alive with live music, DJs, dancing, and more.
The expansion is expected to be completed by March of 2025. That is perfect for me as I plan to visit all 26 Michigan casinos by 2026. Looks like I'll be saving this one for one of the last. I really can't wait to see how it turns out.
