THIS IS NO LONGER FREE
You need to spend at least 40 US$ to stay, you need to become a member of the players club, a long process and the collect 40 points on the card to be able to get a permit each dollar spend is 1point.
This is rather unfriendly and we went away.
The place was very windy and not very level, you have to be way in the back and walk down long stairs (30 steps) to get to the casino level
Will not go their again
March 24th, Chinook Winds Casino (44 59.954 124 0.353).
Entry a little difficult, turning left off the very busy 101 at a traffic light onto a side street, thence into the casino parking areas. There is a special one for RVS, featuring steeply angled parking, so I didn’t really like it right off the bat.
The best thing about this place was the surf. Huge waves were crashing in to the beach, something I could watch all day The casino itself is huge with a hotel and conference center included in the main buildings.
Walking through the buffet on the second floor, I was quite impressed at the selection – everything looked very good. Luckily, I wasn’t having lunch so managed to escape without adding further to the girth.
Exit back onto the highway north involved a mandatory right turn on 101 (heading south) followed by a series of left turns and a scenic tour of Lincoln City Parks and residential areas before I could get myself pointed north again. No doubt, there is a different exit that would have served me better
Nice to see that they reversed their no overnight policy. I laughed when I read the sign, a paragraph about points etc. Bottom line, you play, you can stay. They had to have quite a few meetings to come up with that policy. If you don't have a permit in your window by 10pm they might just kick you out. Bring lots of levelers unless you're lucky and get a flat site. It's all paved.
There is also a full service RV park run by the tribe across the road from the casino. It's OK. The shuttle runs through there. If it's really cold you may want to exercise this option. If I remember right it was around 35 bucks.
Has overnight parking, however MUST earn at least 40 points on card and then revive a 3 night pass. (Basically spend $40.00 in casino to earn the 40 points). Must earn more points over the next 3 days to get an extension to your stay.
Casino has reversed no RV parking policy. Newly painted lines for RV spaces. Strictly enforced locations for parking. Must fill out form from security and submit to hotel registration. They will issue permit. Good up to 14 days. Shuttle bus comes through frequently or you can call. Buffet is better than ever.
