The Kla-Mo-Ya Casino

The Kla-Mo-Ya Casino is a tribal-owned gambling establishment located in Klamath County, Oregon. Its name is derived from the name of the Klamath, Modoc, and Yahooskin tribes.

The casino was built in 2005,[1] and allowed the Klamath Tribes to begin disbursing payments to its members in 2007.[2]

In 2010, the casino completed construction of a truck stop aimed at utilizing the north/south trucking traffic along U.S. Route 97. It includes two covered fueling stations and a small food mart. The truck stop was largely built with Klamath Tribal labor from the nearby town of Chiloquin, Oregon.[3][4]
