Bear Claw Casino & Hotel, is a small casino located on the White Bear First Nations near Moose Mountain Provincial Park and Carlyle, Saskatchewan, Canada. The 30,000 sq ft (2,800 m2) facility includes a Casino (with 132 slot machines and 4 table games), lounge, and restaurant, as 35 room hotel and stalls for campers.[1][2][3]

The Casino was the first casino in Saskatchewan operated by a native group to open in the province in 1993, at that time it was caught up in a legal battle between the local first nations group and the province over jurisdiction.[4] Originally the casino opened in 1993 in the club house of the White Bear Golf Course; moving into its current location in 1996.[5]

In 2010 the 35-room hotel was fully renovated when taken over by the Saskatchewan Ian Gaming Authority and joined to the Casino facility.[6] After reopening in June 2010 this became the first hotel operated by the Saskatchewan Indian Gaming Authority.
