SYLVAN BEACH, N.Y. – The Oneida Indian Nation will build a new event and gaming venue in Sylvan Beach at the site of the former DiCastro’s Private Beach Club.

The new venue will be called The Lake House at Sylvan Beach and will feature indoor and outdoor dining, as well as gaming, and is slated to open in May of 2020. The Nation expects to create 60 jobs at the new facility.

“We welcome the Oneida Indian Nation’s investment in our village and their assistance in helping us transform Sylvan Beach into a year-round tourist destination,” said Sylvan Beach Mayor Gregory Horan. “It is always our top priority to develop new revenue streams which will help us maintain our tax base.”

The Oneida Indian Nation is looking to expand tourism in the region with this new project, using revenue generated after the 2013 settlement between the Nation and New York State. The Nation agreed to invest 25% of its net gaming revenue back into New York if state and counties agreed to put an end to all legal disputes over land, taxes and gaming.

“We are thrilled to be expanding on this success with the new Sylvan Beach project, which will continue to make Central New York a world-class tourist destination and support the local economy with new jobs and new public revenues,” said Ray Halbritter, representative for the Oneida Indian Nation.

The facility will be located at 301 Park Ave. in Sylvan Beach.
