WARM SPRINGS, OR -- After more than 50 years, Kah-Nee-Ta Resort and Spa closes for good, Wednesday. The resort on the Warm Springs Reservation is tearing down teepees and taking a final inventory of assets. The Board of Directors recommended closure, in early July; it was approved by the Tribal Council, last week.

Council members say they simply couldn’t find a way to make the operation profitable. The Board came up with several ideas for possible future uses for the property. However, none garnered the necessary support from the Council.
 
Once a popular destination for Oregonians, the resort struggled after Indian Head Casino moved from Kah-Nee-Ta to Highway 26 in 2012.
