New Rooms, Two New Pools, and Other Major Upgrades Coming to THE HOTEL at Black Oak Casino Resort for Summer 2025


48 New Suites, Children’s Pool with Splash Pad, and Renovations to All Existing Suites Highlight Black Oak Casino Resort’s Continued Dedication to Creating the Ultimate Family Destination in Central California

TUOLUMNE, Calif., May 7, 2024 /PRNewswire-HISPANIC PR WIRE/ — As part of a sustained effort to provide families in Tuolumne County and beyond with a vacation destination that offers memorable entertainment options to guests of all ages, Black Oak Casino Resort is pleased to announce the details of a major renovation and expansion project at THE HOTEL. On track for a summer 2025 completion date, this substantial update includes the addition of 48 brand-new suites, a complete overhaul of the existing 148 rooms, an updated hotel exterior, and the construction of two all-new aquatic facilities.

Black Oak Casino Resort is owned and operated by the Tuolumne Band of Me-Wuk Indians who are dedicated to creating a wholesome, family experience for the Tuolumne community. Moorefield Construction, Inc. was awarded the bid for this expansion and has a well-documented history of creating some of California’s most iconic buildings. Steelman Partners, a renowned architectural firm based out of Las Vegas, has designed the new look for THE HOTEL.

“THE HOTEL has been the premier lodging choice for visitors to Tuolumne County since we first opened it in 2013, and we are excited to share this next phase with the public,” said Ty Day Jr., Chair of the Tuolumne Economic Development Authority Board of Directors. “This expansion and renovation reflects our desire to provide Black Oak Casino Resort guests with the ultimate luxury experience in the Sierra Nevada.”

The new exterior design of THE HOTEL will combine a sleek, modern look with the natural scenic beauty of Tuolumne. This update will also connect THE HOTEL to the gaming area and create a grand, dramatic new lobby that will serve as the main shared entrance to both buildings.

“We were honored to work on this project as THE HOTEL at Black Oak Casino Resort provides such a positive impact on the local economy in Tuolumne County,” said Mike Moorefield, president of Moorefield Construction. “This expansion and renovation will solidify THE HOTEL as the best place to stay for families looking to escape their everyday routine and make memories that will last a lifetime.”

“Steelman Partners is thrilled to embark on the design journey to expand and revitalize the Black Oak Casino Resort in Tuolumne,” said Paul Steelman, CEO of Steelman Partners. “Situated near one of America’s most cherished landscapes, Yosemite National Park has been a profound inspiration for our design process. With this rich backdrop in mind, we are committed to crafting a resort experience that seamlessly integrates with its stunning surroundings, offering guests an immersive and unforgettable retreat amidst nature’s grandeur. We are confident that Black Oak Casino Resort will emerge as the signature destination in this breathtakingly beautiful setting, setting new standards for luxury and harmony with the environment.”

One of the two new pools will be just for adults and include a pool bar, a brand-new larger hot tub, a massive outdoor television screen to enjoy all the big games, and a stage for live music. The other will be designed for children to beat the heat with a splash zone, slides, and various other water features. This will complement the recently opened Elevate jump center that features trampoline jumping, dodgeball, a Junior Jump Zone for small children, a Ninja Course, axe throwing, several multi-sport simulator screens, and much more to keep children and adults of all ages active and entertained.

THE HOTEL is currently open during renovation and reservations can be made at blackoakcasino.com/stay/hotel.
