Valley Camp is location about 30 minutes east of Seattle. (Directions from their website are located below)

49515 S.E. Middle Fork Rd
North Bend WA 98045

47.4680, -121.6806



Directions to the Event

Take Exit 34 off of I-90. At the bottom of the offramp turn left if coming from Seattle, or right if coming from Spokane.

Go ½ mile to SE Middle Fork Rd. and turn Right. (County sign says 'Valley Camp 2.2 miles')

When you come to the "Y" in the road you can take either direction, you'll find us where the roads come back together.

If you take the left path: Follow that road until you get to the stop sign. We are straight ahead.
This path may be easier for RV's and trailers, however it does have some additional twists and turns and is a two-way road.

If you take the right path: Follow the road until the roads come back together, and make a right turn into camp.
Please note: While this is technically a one-way road many people are unfortunately disobeying the signs, so please be careful of the possibility of oncoming traffic!
