We-Ko-Pa Resort & Conference Center Review

Fort McDowell Casino is owned and operated by the Fort McDowell Yavapai Nation.  It is has an interesting history having actually coming to a standoff (literally) in the casino parking lot with the FBI.  This is before the casino compact was made in 1994 clearing the way for legal indian casinos.

The Fort McDowell Casino Resort has 150,000 square feet of casino gaming space nearly 900 slots and 50+ table games including a separate poker room offering no-limit texas holdem.

Attached is a nice 250 room Raidson hotel with nice pools and amenities to enjoy while you vacation at the casino.  Make sure you catch a few rounds of golf at the WeKoPa Golf Club while you're here.

Fort McDowell Casino Golfing

WeKoPa Golf Club

Ok, to say this is a nice golf course is a serious understatement.  There are two courses at WeKoPa -The Cholla course which was built in 2000 by golf course designer Scott Miler who worked for Jack Nicklaus's golf course design firm.  And the Saguaro course which was built in 2005.  Both courses are amazing and both unique to each other, giving Fort McDowell Casino Resort, Golf and Spa more than one reason to visit again.

We reccommend their well done websites for a further look into these courses.  They provide some amazing photos of the course and the natural scenery and do a better job explaining the courses than we could.

Fort McDowell Casino RV Parking

Eagleview RV is part of the Fort McDowell Resort area and is within easy drive of the casino.
