  Chinook Winds Casino & Convention Center
by mcpangie

An Indian Casino with a view that goes on and on forever!

I laughed inwardly while eating in the Rogue River restaurant upstairs, seated next to a table with sweeping views of the beach and surf. I asked our server if the mouth of the Rogue River was nearby, and she said... "No, that's the Pacific Ocean out there." She assumed I was a dumb tourist I suppose... but I was kind of laughing at her misunderstanding me.

Unique Suggestions: I found the slots to be "tight", which probably means I gamble too much! Maybe more fun in the poker room, or if considered entertainment.

Fun Alternatives: I saw people taking a break from gambling to go down to the beach and walk around on the sand and watch the waves.

Review Helpfulness: 2.5 out of 5 stars
