GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. — With a heavy winter storm hitting the Great Lakes region, Gun Lake Casino, located halfway between Grand Rapids and Kalamazoo, Michigan, announced it closed on Friday evening at 7 p.m., December 23, and will reopen on Christmas Day, December 25, at 10 a.m.
Gun Lake Casino officials said in a statement:
"The safety of guests and team members is the top priority due to the blizzard-like conditions present throughout the region. It is also noted that large sections of U.S. 131 have been closed.
