Get away from it all, but stay close by! Tolt MacDonald Park and Campground, which is located in Carnation, just 40 minutes from downtown Seattle and a short drive from Redmond, offers a true recreation destination with a little something for everyone. The 574-acre park sits at the confluence of the Snoqualmie and Tolt Rivers in the beautiful Snoqualmie Valley and features stunning views of the river and Cascade Foothills.

Don't forget your mountain bike! Tolt is a favorite site for mountain biking, and an extensive network of trails on the Ames Lake Plateau can be accessed from the park.
