Tinkham Campground

Take Exit 42 off Interstate 90. Go south across the river and drive east along Tinkham Road 55 for 1 and one half miles. This campground is located on the north side of the road. National Forest Service.

Located 12 miles east of North Bend Tinkham Campground is easily accessible from the Seattle area. The campground has 47 sites in two loops stretching along the South Fork of the Snoqualmie River. The camp sites are in a dense stand of second growth mixed conifers including hemlock and cedar. Maple and alder trees are scattered throughout, along with ferns and other undergrowth, giving the campground a "woodsy" feel and providing good to excellent privacy. About a third of the sites are within view of the river. Only the Snoqualmie River separates the campground from Interstate 90 - so some traffic noise may be audible above the river sounds. There are vault toilets, hand pumps for water, and garbage bins. Some trails for hiking and fishing are within close driving distance.
