We are located in the Rocky Mountains at an elevation of 8,490 feet, one mile above Central City and Black Hawk, and just 35 miles west of Denver! We are within minutes of the best Colorado casinos, and are an excellent base camp for day trips to Red Rocks Amphitheater, Coors Brewery, Denver Zoo, Elitch Gardens Amusement Park, Estes Park, and Colorado Springs.
