Chinook Winds Casino Resort
Miles of beautiful sandy beach just steps from the casino makes this RV parking lot a very popular place. Overnight parking was free for years then in 2015 it was banned only to be reinstated a few months later although now it’s no longer completely free (unless you get lucky!)To get a parking pass, which is good for three days, you must have a player’s card and accumulate at least 40 points. This is pretty easy to do.

RV parking is in the top lot. The lot slants in two directions so leveling is necessary. The sites are numbered and there are a limited amount. Once they’re filled, that’s it. RVs are not allowed to be parked anywhere else. We were there when an usual heat wave hit Portland sending everyone streaming to the coast. The parking lot filled early and with RVs circling like sharks we decided to stay put and walk/roll everywhere so that we didn’t lose our spot.
The casino is accessible but a number of the machines have card and money slots that are too high to easily reach. There isn’t an accessible path to the beach.
