Guest arriving on Saturday morning should plan on being at lodge around 8:30 am.

Events will be organized for both Saturday and Sunday and will range from ones suitable for children (as young as 2) to others considered strenuous. Options will be

  • Hiking around Meany
  • Hikes in the Snoqualmie and Stampede Pass areas
  • Biking to Snoqualmie Pass Tunnel
  • Biking around Meany


After Saturday's hiking or biking, return to the lodge to clean up, relax with new friends and enjoy the late afternoon and evening activities which will include program and age appropriate activities. In the past we have hosted dog sled demonstrations, searched for hidden treasure (Geocaching) and made our own kites to fly. Everybody will enjoy the scrumptious family dinner and desert.

Accommodation options

For the evening, it's your choice of accommodations. Sleep in the lodge, or pitch a tent under the stars. There is ample space to camp close to the lodge, or you can find your own secluded spot on the property. The lodge facilities are available to you all night including men's and women's restrooms and showers (plenty of hot water). The lodge sleeps 90+ in three hostel-style dorms for women, men, and families. There is limited self-contained motor home parking at Meany.
