Clearwater Casino Resort Announces Extension of Temporary Closure
As a major entertainment destination in Kitsap County, the safety of our guests, team members, and community remains our top priority. As you know, in an effort to ensure the health and well-being of everyone, Suquamish Clearwater Casino Resort made the difficult decision to temporarily close until April 7th.
Given the recent developments in the COVID-19 outbreak and community-wide efforts to prevent the spread of the virus by limiting access to entertainment facilities, on Friday, March 27, the Suquamish Tribal Council ordered the Suquamish Clearwater Casino Resort and other Port Madison Enterprises facilities to close through Tuesday, April 7th (“extended closure”).
As we continue to closely evaluate tribal, federal, state and local recommendations regarding COVID-19, the estimated date for re-opening is subject to change.
Port Madison Enterprises will continue to compensate full-time employees and provide coverage for those employees enrolled in health benefits through the extended closure. As we understand the significant role our team members play in our success, it’s important to ensure that they can continue to comply with the state-wide directive of staying home and taking care of their health along with their families and loved-ones.
This extended closure consists of the Casino gaming floor, all restaurants and bars, hotel, Angeline Spa, Kiana Lodge, White Horse Golf Club and the store at the Longhouse Texaco. The Masi Shop and Suquamish Village Chevron will remain open on limited hours but gasoline will still be available 24/7 at all gas stations. All casino promotions, drawings and events scheduled before April 8th will be postponed until further notice.

As a Kitsap County entertainment destination, the difficult decision has been made to temporarily close for the remainder of the month. This measure has been considered to be in the best interest of the public’s health and the ongoing efforts to contain the spread of COVID-19.
All casino promotions, drawings and events are postponed until further notice.

As a Kitsap County entertainment destination, we continue to be committed to the safety of our guests and employees and have implemented some additional precautionary measures in light of recent health concerns regarding novel coronavirus COVID-19.
Postponed Concerts & Safety Update
Following Governor Inslee’s press conference yesterday, he invited the Washington Tribes to join him on a working session. During that call Governor Inslee explained his commitment to working with these sovereign Tribal Governments, and was hoping to consult with them on best practices to work together on this health crisis. He made it clear that he does not expect casinos to close; rather, his focus was on concerts, sporting events, and other events of that nature.
After consulting with our Suquamish Tribal Government, we’ve made the decision to reschedule or cancel all such events of 250 people or more through April 1, 2020.
CASINO IS OPEN
Casino operations will remain open and smaller events such as Free Live Music on Fridays & Saturdays, Paint & Sip on Saturday, Barstool Bingo on Fridays, and more, will continue as normal at this time. The Greatest Piano Men concert scheduled for Saturday March 14th, and Sebastian Bach concert scheduled for Saturday March 28th are postponed. New dates for these concerts have not yet been determined, but future information regarding these concerts will be available on our website at ClearwaterCasino.com.
