Salmon la Sac Summary
July 2002

See Pictures of this Area
Salmon la Sac is a very nice, extremely popular campground just north of Cle Elum Lake, and about 17 miles North of Roslyn. It has great access to the Snoqualmie-to-Stevens section of the PCT. Several fairly short and easy hikes (Pete Lake, Hyas Lake, Waptus Lake, Mineral Creek, etc.) are on or near the PCT and within close range of the campsite.
Salmon la Sac Campground is also a good launching point for exploring by car, as there are many miles of road with great views of Mount Rainier and closer neighboring mountains.
The campground has awesome campsites, many of which are right along the Cle Elum River. For just a regular campsite (no RV hookups) the fee in the summer of 2002 was $13/night plus $10 for each additional car. It was one heck of a lot of cash for a recent high school graduate with no job, but it was definitely worth it. -Alicia
