Downstream Casino is one of the gambling establishments which are making a name for Oklahoma as a casino destination. This casino is located at 69300 East Nee Road in Quapaw, Oklahoma. Like Louisiana, the state is becoming an alternative to Las Vegas, although it doesn’t yet offer the kind of mega-casinos, or the number of casino resorts found in Nevada. Based in the northeast part of the state, the Downstream Casino Resort boasts a Native American casino that is open 24 hours and a twelve-story hotel, as well as three restaurants.
Downstream Casino offers 70,000 square feet of gaming space featuring over 2,000 machines and 46 table and poker games. There is a designated fourteen-table poker room so that you can concentrate fully on your chosen game, whether its Texas Hold ‘Em, Seven Card Stud, or Ohama. There are tournaments every day of the week that range from friendly competitions to more serious events. As well as the games you would expect from a casino in Oklahoma, the Downstream Casino also has craps, which is a traditional game in Las Vegas casinos, but it is often not offered in other casinos in the state.
The hotel at the Downstream Casino Resort has over 220 rooms and luxury suites. The décor takes its inspiration from Native American designs, blended with a slick, modern aesthetic. Billed as one of the best Oklahoma resorts, guests can not only take advantage of the comfort of their rooms, but also use the fitness center and outdoor pool. There’s no need to leave the Downstream Casino Resort for food or drink, as there is a grill, buffet, snack bar, and steakhouse. For golf enthusiasts, there is also a club nearby with 18-holes, with the beautiful rolling hills of the Ozark Mountains as a backdrop.
It’s good to be active, whether that’s playing at the machines and tables, putting on the golf pitch, or swimming at the outdoor pool. However, there will be times when visitors simply want to sit back and be entertained. Luckily, there is also a vibrant program of Downstream Casino events at the resort. There is live entertainment every evening, with rock, blues and country music acts proving the most popular shows. Downstream Casino events don’t stop with music, however. At their spacious sports bar, all the major sports games are shown live, so guests can have a drink or a bite to eat while they watch their favorite team.
Quapaw is in an area sometimes called the Four State Territory, as it is close to the borders of Missouri, Arkansas, and Kansas. Thousands of vacationers from the three adjoining states are drawn across the border every year to enjoy the casino and the resort’s Downstream Casino events. Quapaw itself is a small town with little interest for tourists. Tulsa, to the southwest, however, is the second biggest city in the state after Oklahoma City and boasts some of the top attractions in Oklahoma. Known for its high culture, including the Tulsa Opera and Tulsa Ballet, the city also has a good selection of museums and art galleries. The northeast of the state is a good area for those doing a tour of casinos in Oklahoma, as Tulsa hosts a good number of casinos, including the Hard Rock Casino in Miami, a short drive from Quapaw, and the popular Buffalo Run Casino.
