WARM SPRINGS, OR -- After more than 50 years, one of Oregon’s largest resorts will shut down in September. Kah-Nee-Ta announced Friday it would close in 60 days, laying off 146 workers.
According to the notice sent to employees, the resort can no longer operate below a self-sustaining level and the closure is necessary to protect the Confederated Tribes of Warm Springs from further financial risk. The resort struggled with profitability after Indian Head Casino moved from Kah-Nee-Ta to Highway 26 in 2012.
Kah-Nee-Ta Resort & Spa
was built over the 1960s and 70s and now features 139 rooms, golf course, soaking pools, RV park and meeting space.
It will continue taking reservations through September fifth.
