Thursday was the long-awaited opening of the Rain Rock casino in Yreka. The new facility overlooks the beautiful city and has been constructed over the past 2 years. The new building is 36,000 feet of gaming space with restaurants and entertainment areas. The casino broke ground in July of 2016 but as the chairman of the tribe tells me it been a lot longer process than that. Chairman of the Karuk tribe Russell Attebery told us today “we probably started the process in the early 2000's so to see this process come about has been a long time coming... and is exciting but as I said also very overwhelming.”


Today’s opening was a big celebration with all of the important community members present. Many of those officials were also very excited for the new building because for them they have also worked hard with council leader to see this vision become a reality. What opened today was only phase one of the project. Phase two will be more gaming space as well as an 80 room hotel for guests to stay in. The big picture is this casino is going have a major impact on Yreka and Siskiyou County as a whole because of the 200+ jobs that it created and the great partnership that the city and the Karuk tribe have to bring this all together.
