NWSDA appreciates the use of the Camp K facilities and will implement an alcohol policy. Disregard of this policy will result in a warning. If you continue to ignore our request, then you will be asked to leave. The use of alcohol needs to be discreet. The drink (wine/beer/liquor) needs to be in a container that could hold any non-alcoholic beverage. There can be no carrying of wine/beer/liquor bottles to and from the campfire or to other trucks. You may not have visible alcohol containers sitting outside your truck. You will be required to take all drink containers home with you. We can never see the cans and bottles littering the ground at any time. Excessive use of alcohol will not be tolerated.


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. Once you see the Camp information board, turn to the right, which brings you by the camp director’s house. Continue on that road into the parking/staging area near the Pool/Shower/Restroom Building.
