The setting of this casino is beautiful! It is on a lovely lake and even has zip lines across the lake. The hotel is exceptionally attractive and well done. We didn't use the casino but had lunch at the buffet, which was good, and walked...More

Went to play at the casino, enjoyed walking the grounds and sitting at the lake. The Friday night seafood buffet was amazing. The casino is beautiful, people are very friendly.

Gaming best done in the morning or early afternoon here. Too crowded and too smokey at night - especially weekends. Same owners as the Inn of the Mountain Gods. Player card points works for both. Gas station prices and Car Wash worth dropping by.

The lake is up at the Inn, not at the Casino Apache on Rt 70. Only is in the shower/changing facilities for the truckers
