Easy to miss

Almost missed the attraction. It's easy to by pass off the highway. My kids wanted to walk up and take pictures. After a few pictures...that's about it to see. Kinda unique.

Best part of this was going to see Camel Rock on the opposite side of the highway. This casino really sucks. Stinks of old cigarettes and air is filthy. Think downtown Vegas and you'll get the idea. Poor tables selection. No craps. No roulette. Staff not friendly either. Best thing was when we drove away.

We were there for less than An hour and had to leave due to bad air. It is sad to see the desperate old folks plugging away their retirement!! This is not a good thing for the Indian nation either!

I have been to this casino several times in the past. It's never been fabulous, but it has been fun and different from the huge casinos. The air quality has never been as good as Buffalo Thunder, but then, it has much lower ceilings. This last time, however, I felt like I'd been poisoned. It's a little hike uphill from... More

Not the fanciest Casino in the area, but it's the employees that always make a visit here a good time. Friendly and personable is the best way to describe them. And don't get me wrong, it's a very attractive, and well-maintained casino. Camel Rock Casino is a must for us when we are in New Mexico, and it always will... More

Very nice staff. Signed up for players card given $10 freeplay and $5 dinner. More on that in a minute. We played away the afternoon on not much $$$. Good mix of new / old games. The tables were deserted but two open. We wondered why and soon found out. I have never gotten sticker shock at a casino but... More

We made a couple trips to the Buffalo Thunder casino to play BJ and just stopped in here out of curiosity for a few quick hands. I thought the air quality was actually better than in the Buffalo Thunder casino (although we got up and left when someone started smoking at our table). Why is it that you can smoke... More

Nothing special. The machines are tight. I spent two hours there and a lot of money and no significant pay out.

Big variety of games I had never seen or played. We normally play in the Oklahoma casinos and they have the same old games. These were new and fun and would let you play. Won on some, lost on some, but got to play and that is the fun part.

We stayed in Santa Fe and tried out the casino. Wish we hadn't. The casino has a lots of old machines, and the smoke smell is horrible. The gambling was only fair. Won't go back.
