Camp Koinonia - what you need to know

This page gives you all the information you will need for our venue.  This is private property.  Please be informed.

Camping/RV fees for members at this time are back to $10 a night, no dog fee.  Contact the Camp Director for reservations - you can use the button at the bottom of this page to get to the camps website.  In order to run dogs on property, Members will need a permit.  $25 for dryland only, $35 includes snow.  For the permit, you can use the Paypal button on the Join page.  Michael will leave your permit at the kiosk at Dogtown.  Be sure you are prepared to drive up a short steep shady and often icy hill to get into camp in the winter.

how do you get here?

​The camp is located 25 miles east of Snoqualmie Pass, 7 miles west of Cle Elum.  Take Exit 78 off I-90, Golf Course Rd. Turn south, go over the RR tracks and up the hill slightly and take 1st right onto West Nelson Siding Rd.


About 1/4 mile the road bends to the right and the entrance to Camp K is straight ahead onto a dirt road. There will be a sign for the camp. Follow the road up the hill where it bends to the left over a bridge that goes over the irrigation canal and up another short hill. In the winter, this section can be very slick.  Carry chains.


Once you see the Camp information board, turn to the right, which brings you by the camp director’s house and shops. Continue, staying to the far right at the "V" which takes you back to the campground.  Follow the signs and trail markers.
