Getting to the Start
- Take I-90 to Hwy 900 in Issaquah, exit 15.
- Head north on Hwy 900, and turn left on W. Lake Sammamish Parkway (1st light north of freeway).
- Head west about 1/4 mile, park entrance is on the right.
- In the park, DO NOT turn left at the first opportunity. Instead, continue straight ahead to the second (and larger) beach, also known as Sunset Beach, and head towards the lake where there is plenty of parking.
Get directions via Google Maps.
Lake Sammamish State Park normally requires each vehicle entering the park to have either a daily ($10) or annual ($30) Discover Pass. These can be purchased at the entrance to the park or online.
