The race venue is at Lake Sammamish State Park, which is located at 2000 NW Sammamish Rd in Issaquah, Washington.
There is ample parking, and a Discover Pass is required to park there. Many paddlers may already have an annual Discover Pass, which costs $35 for entry into all Washington State Parks for a year. A day-use Discover Pass costs $11.50. You may purchase either pass online, and while you can also purchase one at the park on the day, you can beat the crowds and hassle if you do it ahead of time. Don’t forget to print it and place it in plain view on your rearview mirror or dashboard.
