Quinault Beach Resort and Casino

"The ocean stirs the heart, inspires the imagination and brings eternal joy to the soul"

After leaving Sol Duc Valley, we just could not get Olympic National Park out of our system. We were addicted. So we tried to stay one more night at the most southern point of the park, the Quinault Rain Forest. Unfortunately, the National Park Service Campgrounds would only accommodate tent campers. Although we were bummed, it was pretty cool knowing that some parks stay "pure" to the true way of outdoor camping. So off we went southwest, grateful for the awesome experiences we had in Olympic.

Located on the beach at Ocean Shores, Washington, Quinault Beach Resort and Casino proved to be quite a find. Surrounded by the majestic Pacific Ocean and nestled amidst over 200 acres of protected wetlands, the resort and it's grounds were pretty cool. The resort is an enterprise of The Quinault Indian Reservation. Their world is a land of magnificent forests, swift-flowing rivers, gleaming lakes and 23 miles of unspoiled Pacific coastline. Another example of the extensive Native American influence in Washington.

And our stay was FREE, FREE, FREE. Here we had a beachfront gravel site that was 27' x 60' large, miles of beach walking, a casino that offers free wi-fi in it's very relaxing lounge, three restaurants with good food and for other gambling souls, rows of slots and tables that choose not to pay you sh@#.  It was no brainer that we changed our mind of staying just one night into three nights, (granted, hindsight did slap us...we shoulda, coulda stayed one more night at Sol Duc with Patrick and Cheryl). Our third day at Quinalt was on a "game day" and we got to experience the #12 phenomena!  Sunday morning gave us an opportunity to sit down to a fabulous brunch with a beach side table and front row seats to view all the fervent Seattle Seahawks fans arrive at the sports bar and demonstrate their 12th man power.
