Turtle Creek Casino is located on M-72 in Williamsburg. I had a chance to visit Turtle Creek Casino last summer when I went camping in Traverse City. It is not a huge casino, but I enjoyed my time there. Leelanau Sands Casino & Lodge is on N West Bay Shore Drive in Peshawbestown and they are still on my bucket list to visit.
