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
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.
I found this to be a very nice stay. Big parking lot for rv's to park themselves but no 'marked' spots. Not level but I have blocks. WiFi???-Did not work for me. No antenna tv. Good beach access for a nice walk. Grocery and fuel readily available. Casino nice with good table games and lots of slots. Food seemed pricey so did not try.
