Camping: The Salmon la Sac campground has BOTH first-come, first-served sites and reservable sites available, but last I checked, reserveamerica.com showed all reservable sites taken, so show up as early as possible and grab a site. Or share. Sorry I can’t save a site for you. http://www.reserveamerica.com/camping/salmon-la-sac/r/campgroundDetails.do?contractCode=NRSO&parkId=70321
Cost: On-water participation – Saturday only or both Saturday and Sunday is $20.00 per person. More than one race class is an additional $5.00. There will be separate classes based on age, gender, and type of boat. The prizes (there are many winners at SLS!) are really cool this year; don’t miss out.
How to Get There: Navigate I-90 east of Seattle and exit at Roslyn. Drive
through town (the whole place is a speed trap and stays a speed trap until
you get to the campground: Beware!) to the end of the road, and there you
are at both the race site and campground.
