The Arenac Independent reported on July 30 that construction is almost complete for the multimillion-dollar expansion at Saganing Eagles Landing Casino in Saranac.  According to General Manager, Bob VanWert, the new hotel is expected to open to the public for reservations beginning the evening of September. 8. The new gaming floor, gift shop, restaurant and lounge are scheduled to open on Monday, August 19.

The casino will gain more than 140 hotel rooms, a 200-seat full-service restaurant, a gift shop, 315 additional slot machines and an indoor swimming pool, whirlpool and fitness center.

The casino broke ground on the project in June 2017, with an estimated completion date of early 2019, but the date was later pushed back to fall 2019 because of the complexity of the project and abnormal weather.

“I believe that this project brings something new and exciting to the area that the residents will enjoy,” VanWert previously told the Independent. “The added amenities will draw visitors to the area who may not have ever been to Arenac County.”

Arenac County Economic Development Director, Stephanie Buffman, said she expects the casino and hotel to attract people from all over to the area, which will have a positive impact on local businesses.

“At our last Arenac County EDC meeting, it was reported that the Saginaw Chippewa Indian Tribe had hired over 160 people as a result of their June hiring event and were planning to hire around 70 more,” she said.
