Majestically overlooking the Pacific Ocean from the Lincoln City shore, the 157,000 square foot Chinook Winds Casino Resort is Oregon’s premier Casino. Owned and operated by the Confederated Tribes of Siletz Indians of Oregon, the spirit of the Tribe is captured in the decor of the facility. Chinook Winds Casino Resort opened in 1995.
The Casino includes a waterfall flowing to a pond (designed to resemble Euchre Creek, an important area to the Siletz tribe) where “wishers” can toss their coins for good luck and make a contribution to the Tribe’s educational fund. The round lobby and weave design painted on the exterior give tribute to the tribe’s traditional basket weaving techniques. Salmon, a fish that plays a special and important role in the history of the tribe, decorates many of the interior and exterior areas.
The casino is a Las Vegas-style facility with more than 1,100 slot machines, along with keno, bingo, craps, roulette, blackjack and poker. The convention center has 37,000 square feet of meeting space. The “Concerts by the Sea” showroom seats more than 1,200 people and features monthly headline acts.
Chinook Winds Casino Resort is host to three dining venues. The Rogue River Steakhouse features casual fine dining with a stunning panoramic ocean view. There is after-hours entertainment in the Rogue Lounge. The Siletz Bay Buffet serves breakfast, lunch, dinner and a seafood buffet on Fridays. At the Euchre Creek Deli, tucked behind the waterfall, you’ll find burgers, clam strips and more served 24/7.
To serve families, the facility includes a Play Palace with secure, supervised childcare available for up to four hours. Pagers are given to parents visiting the casino. A casino visit is not necessary to use the childcare facilities. The childcare facility also offers a “party room” to host themed birthday parties for up to 14 children. For adults and children, the Games Galore Arcade offers the latest arcade games, air hockey, pool, and pinball: more than 80 games in over 4,000 square feet of space.
Visitors can also enjoy the addition of alcohol service on the gaming floor. As always free parking and free sodas and coffee are a staple service provided by the Resort.
All of us at Chinook Winds Casino Resort look forward to your visit, where it’s “Better at the Beach!”
