Black Hawk is Colorado’s premier gaming and entertainment destination, and your best bet for fun when it comes to casino gambling.

By most accounts, Black Hawk took its name from an early stamp mill (a type of mill used to break ore) brought in from Rock Island, IL and named for the famous Indian Chief. But in 1868 this little town by the Clear Creek river was called the ‘City of Mills’, as tons of ore poured in for processing by the water-powered stamp mills. In 1872, the Colorado Central Railway extended its line to Black Hawk creating a vital link to the nation’s network of railroads.

While Black Hawk may best be known for its exciting nightlife and casino gaming, there is plenty more to do in and around town, from hiking and biking nearby trails in the summer, to skiing and snowboarding world-class mountain resorts in the winter.

Black Hawk is the gaming capital of Colorado, with 17 casinos and over 200,000 square feet of gaming action. Colorado voters recently approved an increase in bet limits and the introduction of new, exciting table games like craps and roulette.

Black Hawk is less than an hour’s drive from Denver and is easily accessible by car or bus via Highway 6 or I-70.
