A new full-service truck stop and travel center has opened in Oregon. The Plateau Travel Plaza on U.S. Highway 26 near Madras, Oregon, is owned by the Confederated Tribes of Warm Springs.

The center features parking for up to 70 trucks in a secure lot, laundry facilities, full-service and self-serve fueling, a 3,000 sq. feet convenience store stocked with favorite items, homestyle seated dining and takeout food, a convenient off highway location, and a variety of gaming options at the indoor casino. 

Eric Angel, general manager of the new facility, estimates that the nearest truck plaza with comparable amenities is 120 miles away from Plateau Travel Plaza. 

"That's quite a distance when a trucker has a deadline to meet," said Belinda Chavez, director of marketing for Indian Head Casino. "So, we invite all drivers to stop and visit when traveling north or south on U.S. Highway 26 near Madras.  You'll find friendly faces, competitive fuel prices, the freshest coffee around and so much more."

Plateau Travel Plaza is owned and operated by the Confederate Tribes of Warm Springs, which represents the Warm Springs, Wasco and Paiute tribes. The building concept mirrors the warm and welcoming nature and traditions of the Warm Springs people. Alive with earth tones coupled with blue and teal hues of the life giver, "water." Plateau Travel Plaza is located in the Jefferson County Industrial Park of Madras, Oregon.
