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

We are still working out the camping details. Stay tuned.

All camping spots in Dogtown Camping is on a first come, first serve basis, with all spots being reserved and payments will be included in the race registrations fees.

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.
