Bay Mills to expand resort and casino next year


BRIMLEY, MI— Bay Mills Resort and Casino is breaking ground on an expansion project next spring.

Tribal Chair Whitney Gravelle says the $65 million, three-story expansion includes 134 rooms with balconies, a deli, spa, pool, fitness center, and other amenities. Exterior plans include new fishing piers, gardens, gazebos and outdoor patios, as well as marina upgrades.

The Bay Mills Indian Community will bid out the project this winter. Work will begin in spring of 2023 and is expected to be completed in 2024.

Tribal officials say the expansion will allow the resort to meet the needs of guests while providing them a one-of-a-kind experience on Lake Superior.
