History of Chinook Winds Casino Resort:

In May of 1995, after intense planning and three years of negotiation at the local, state and federal level, the Siletz Tribe opened a 10,000 square foot temporary facility known affectionately as “The Tent”.  With only 250 slots, 12 card tables and a small deli, “the tent” opened under the name “Chinook Winds Gaming Center”. Chinook Winds faced anti-Indian and anti-casino protests suggesting the casino would attract drugs, prostitutes and organized crime. Opposition soon dissipated when the casino proved not only to be a major economic asset to the local community without the predicted evils but a valued partner that enhanced Lincoln City’s quality of life. Just over one year later, the grand opening of Chinook Winds Casino Resort took place on June 28th, 1996.

In 2004 the Siletz Tribe purchased the ocean front hotel adjacent to the casino.  The resort offers 243 rooms including 160 oceanfront rooms; 61 of them fireplace suites. Guests at Chinook Winds hotel are just steps away from the beach and stunning sunsets.  The hotel houses an indoor heated swimming pool and workout facility, 7,500 square feet of meeting space, Wi-Fi and a complimentary shuttle to the casino which is located adjacent to the hotel.  For teens, the Chinook Winds Arcade is located right next door, and features state-of-the-art video games. Chinook’s Seafood Grill, located at the hotel, has stunning views of the ocean, a lounge; the perfect spot to enjoy drinks and conversation with friends around the fire pit.

The casino offers five dining options whether you’re in the mood for a quick bite or fine dining. The Rogue River Steakhouse offers a panoramic a view of the Pacific Ocean from every table. The steakhouse serves lunch and dinner featuring Pacific Northwest selections and local wines.  When the steakhouse closes for dining the Rogue River Lounge heats up on weekends with a DJ and dancing. For guests who prefer having a wide selection of items to choose from, ready to serve, the Siletz Bay Buffet is the place to go. The buffet features a salad bar, carving station for slow roasted meats, and an “action station” where guest can choose from many made-to-order dishes in addition to a wide selection of savory selections on the line.  If you have a craving a classic hamburger, sub sandwich, or quick serve Mexican fare, the Euchre Creek food court offers something for just about any culinary craving served up quickly.

The aesthetics at the Casino reflect the Siletz Tribe’s ownership, with the decor incorporating the beauty of nature with the symbols and traditions of the Tribe.  Painted on the exterior of the building is a weave design that pays tribute to the Tribe’s traditional basket weaving techniques. Salmon decorate both interior and exterior areas as a salute to a fish that has an important role in the history of the Tribe.

The Casino offers over 1,100 slot machines including a smoking section with separate air handling and a high stakes lounge.  Table games include Blackjack, Craps, Roulette, Three Card Poker, Fortune Pai Gow Poker, Bonus Let-It-Ride, Keno and a 1,000 seat bingo hall.  Chinook Winds Casino Resort is proud to offer headline entertainment monthly, comedy acts and signature outdoor events.

The Convention Center, located on the second floor of the casino, accommodates major indoor events like MMA competitions, national pool tournaments, art shows and large charity fundraisers, conventions and gatherings from weddings to reunions.

In 2005, the Resort was expanded further with the addition of a nearby 79 acre golf course, Chinook Winds Golf Resort. The 18-hole course includes a pro-shop, the only indoor driving range on the Oregon Coast, fitness center, Aces Sports Bar & Grill and meeting rooms.

For those who bring their lodging with them, Logan Road RV Park was constructed and is owned by the Siletz Tribe.  Offering fifty-one spaces, and all modern amenities, the RV Park is within walking distance of the Casino and the beach, or guests can ride the complimentary shuttle to the casino.

The combination of amenities has made Chinook Winds Casino Resort Oregon’s premier coastal destination.  The friendliness of the team members keeps guests returning time after time.

Chinook Winds hosts many charitable events, sponsors numerous community activities, and makes not only monetary contributions to various non-profit organizations, but provides assistance through in-kind services, technical support, and team member volunteers throughout the community.

The Siletz Tribe is proud of its contributions through employment, monetary donations, and cooperative measures to the Siletz community, Lincoln County, and the state of Oregon. The Tribe has honored its tradition of sharing within the community by distributing more than $12 million through the Siletz Tribal Charitable Contribution Fund and other tribal resources. Chinook Winds has donated more than $3 million in cash and fundraising items since it opened in 1995.

The revenue generated by Chinook Winds goes directly to the Siletz Tribe after all operating expenses are paid.  Today the Siletz Tribe and Chinook Winds Casino together is the largest employer in Lincoln County, contributing significantly to the health, well being and economic stability of its residents.
