Snoqualmie Pass Area Campgrounds:

Denny CreekMiddle ForkTinkham

The Snoqualmie Pass is a combination of opposites. Even though the campgrounds are located within minutes of one of the country’s most important east – west freeways, they still give the camper the illusion of being out in the wilds. Middle Fork takes about a half hour to get to out of North Bend along the freeway, as you go down a rugged gravel road to a beautiful Alpine like valley with well laid out campsites in the area’s newest campground. Denny Creek is unique in that it has electric hookups for about a third of the sites along with paved spurs in all the sites. It is one of the Forest Service’s nicest campgrounds anywhere. Another unique quality is that it is located in the middle of the freeway. Both the east headed lanes and the west headed lanes are located high above the campground on the surrounding mountains. It gives you the illusion that you are miles away from civilization even though for all practical purposes you are in the median. Tinkham is a shady campground that is perfect for the late arriving traveler. Even though it is only less than an hour from Seattle there are often some sites available even on the weekends. Although you would be smart to make reservations for Denny Creek, all the campgrounds are perfect for the prospective camper in the Seattle area who at the last minute says “Lets get out of the city and see what Washington has to offer!”
