A large Indian casino that has just expanded to include a full-service resort. Located just outside Seattle on the Kitsap peninsula.

Atmosphere Edit

Clearwater inside

The poker area at Clearwater

A serviceable if not spectacular poker room in a large standard casino. Located next to the Keno room, it's nicely removed from the hustle and bustle of the casino at large, leading to a mellow and quiet environment. Three LCD TVs are hung on the wall with their volume turned off.

Neighborhood: Located in a somewhat remote (but not hard to reach) area in the middle of the forest literally overlooking the lovely Agate Passage (a waterway between the Kitsap peninsula and Bainbridge Island). Not much in the way of other businesses until you reach Winslow on the coast, 7 miles south.

Parking: Lots and lots of parking, as is standard at a larger casino like this.

Tables and Chairs: 9-seat tables with decent though slightly worn felt and decent vinyl rail padding. Clean commit line. Fixed-leg, vinyl-covered, padded chairs.

Service and Comps Edit

The seclusion of the poker room from the casino at large works against you on the level of service: waitresses are few and far between, but do arrive to serve standard casino drinks, and also full meals available. Don't know about comps, though.
