The excitement at Fort McDowell Casino includes our Fort McDowell Yavapai Nation which is located within Maricopa County just north of Mesa, east of Scottsdale and only 24 miles from Phoenix. We’re near the confluence of the east-west flowing Salt River and the north-south Verde River which flows gently through our reservation. The majestic Four Peaks rise to 7,000 ft. above the desert floor some 30 miles to the east, gracing the reservation with a magnificent sight year round.

The community was created by Executive Order September 15, 1903. The 40-square mile reservation is home to 600 community members and another 300 members live off reservation. This land was once part of the ancestral home of the nomadic Yavapai people, hunters and gatherers in the vast surrounding area of desert lowlands and the mountainous Mogollon Rim.
