From I-5[edit]

  • I-5 Head towards Tacoma
  • Exit 132, WA-16West, 13.5miles
  • Exit, Purdy Dr. NW/WA-302W, 1.3miles
  • Left, 302/Gig Harbor-Longbranch Hwy, 5.3miles
  • Straight, Key Peninsula Hwy, 13.5miles

Get onto I-5 headed towards Hwy 16, exit 132. Hwy 16 will take you through Tacoma and across the Tacoma Narrows Bridge. Take the fifth exit after the bridge, Purdy Dr. NW/WA-302. The signs will also indicate Purdy, Key Center, and Shelton. This exit will wraps around and takes you under the freeway. Continue on to the first light. At the first light turn left on 302/Gig Harbor-Longbranch Hwy. You will immediately cross a narrow bridge leading onto a long spit of land. After five miles you will come to another light where WA 302 heads off to the right. Continue to go straight through this light following the Key Peninsula Hwy. you will pass through several small towns, Key Center, Home, and Longbranch. Eventually you will reach a dead-end sign, this means you are almost there. The driveway and sign for the camp are on the left. If you go too far, the road just dead ends, turn around and go back.

The Tacoma Narrows bridge is tolled for Eastbound traffic. There is no toll on the way to the camp. Returning back towards Tacoma does have a toll. Toll rates can be found on the [Washington State DOT] site.

Avoiding I-5[edit]

From the Kitsap Peninsula you can work your way down Hwy 3 and 16 and hook into the directions above.

From South of Olympia you can use Hwy 101, 3, and 302 to avoid I-5 traffic. Please check a map or call first - roads back there can be tricky, and they go a long ways before you realize it!
