Located in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada Mountains and on a 35-acre portion of the Shingle Springs Band of Miwok Indians’ Rancheria, Red Hawk Casino takes advantage of the beautiful vistas of the region. Cuningham Group’s design incorporates elements of the Miwok’s culture and history, including a waterfall feature; a porte cochere entry symbolic of the typical round house form; and an arrival wall that depicts the Tribe’s story through shapes and forms that echo traditional basket weaving patterns. Inside, the original casino environment featured approximately 2,000 slot machines, 75 table games, a buffet, six restaurants, four bars, gift shop, and a child care center.
