New Casino, New name

The Casino has been rebuilt under a new name Blackbird Bend.
there are free hookups just across the street to the south. (electric only)
We enjoy the new casino, seems to be a little more loose with slots than others in the area.

TheCasino has opened again in their new building

We were camping at the Winna vegas Casino to the East 18 miles. In had an extremely good luck on the slots. The casino has been rebuilt after the recent flood It is built up on an island like to prevent future flooding.
I could not make any sense of the prospect of a campground in the future. You can stay there overnight but no facilities. We found it worth while just to drive over and stay at the Casino East of the place.

-report from reader A. Van, June 2006

Small (600+ slots plus BJ, Craps) Indian casino west of Onaway, IA, off Exit 112, I-29; Casino has up to date machines but 'antique' operations. Wins of $50 and higher are hand paid. Comps are stingy. Restaurant closes for the day at 2pm on Sundays. RV parking (12) is available adjacent to casino with electric hookups only. Price quoted was $7.00/night
