Camping at White Salmon Lodge

One of the great benefits of hosting events at the Mt. Baker facility is that members and their families may camp at the event site the evening before the event! NEXT EVENT: Sunday July 17th.  We always have a lot of fun while camping and the beauty of a Mt. Baker sunrise is memorable to say the least. Below are some helpful tips if you plan to camp:

  • There is no electricity or water available
  • Pit toilets are located on the far side of the pad and are the only restroom facilities
  • People typically camp under the lodge exterior roof (as there is NO LODGE ACCESS) or on the South and East sides of the lodge (see map below). There is optional camping in the north gravel lot as well.
  • Tent camping under lodge exterior roof: There is limited space under cover and use of space is on a first-come first-served basis. As we use this space for spectators and lunch during the event, please pack up your tent and personal belongings by morning registration.
  • No open-fires!  You may, however bring a propane fire pit.
  • Garbage – as we have limited ability to transport our garbage off site, please plan to haul your personal garbage out.
  • Pets must be leashed.
  • Plan for sun and rain, as well as cold and warm temperatures as weather at the lodge can change quickly!

If you plan to camp, please notify a club member by Saturday morning, or send Tanya a message at membership@chuckanutscc.org

Send any other questions regarding camping to Tanya!

Happy 60th Anniversary, Chuckanut!

This summer 2016 we will celebrate the 60th Anniversary of Chuckanut Sports Car Club.  At this time we are looking for individuals who would like to participate in the planning process.

Please email membership@chucanutscc.org if you would like to join the planning committee!  Expect a few emails throughout the next few months, a meeting as we get close to a date, and oodles of gratitude from the rest of the club for taking the time to make this happen!

To get started, we need to:

  • Pick a date (probably dependent on location…)
  • Arrange and reserve a location (possibly dependent on the date…)
  • Gather options about food and beverages to present to the club at the May and June meetings
  • Brainstorm fun activities for everyone!

Our sincerest appreciation to everyone who is willing to donate a couple hours of their time to help create a memorable and inclusive event for all CSCC members!
