Fort Hall Casino & Hotel Review
Fort Hall Casino and Shoshone Bannock Hotel and Events Center is located on Ross Fork Road on the Fort Hall Indian Reservation. Take exit 80 off I-15 just outside of Pocatello, Idaho. The casino offers 20,000 square feet of gaming space with slots and electronic tables as well as a bingo hall. There is a restaurant in the casino but no bars, as other than the next door event center and restaurant, the entire reservation is dry - meaning the tribal police may arrest you for drinking.
The new hotel offers visitors 156 air-conditioned guestrooms, a restaurant with beer and wine, and a full service spa open five days a week. There is also an entertainment venue and meeting space.
The casino is open 24 hours. Visitors must be 18 to enter or gamble.

Dining & Restaurants
Camas Sports Grill
- Serving: Bar/Pub, Cafe/Variety, Light Fare
Rather than being directly in the casino the Camas Sports Grill is in the hotel and event center next door. The venue offers beer, wine, and specialty malt liquors by the bottle, can, and glass. Enjoy a wide variety of options for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Being a Tribal casino, we always suggest the fry bread and the Sho-Ban Fry Bread Breakfast is a real treat. Idaho nachos are another popular item and the buffalo sliders will stick to your ribs as well as in your memory.

Buffalo Horn Grill
- Serving: Cafe/Variety
The Buffalo Horn Grill is located inside the Fort Hall Casino and offers patrons a great variety of main course for breakfast, lunch, and dinner along with seasonal sides, desserts and plenty of specialty items. We would suggest trying the fry bread, Indian tacos and buffalo burgers - and if you are only there for one meal, share! Friday and Saturday nights after 5pm the they roll out the prime rib. But anytime from 7am until late you can grab and go all kinds of snacks, sandwiches, salads and desserts.
