Outdoor venues

Tolt Bridge Shelter

Located at the Tolt-MacDonald Park & Campground in Carnation, this beautiful newly-renovated shelter is nestled next to the Snoqualmie River, on the west side of the park across the scenic 500-foot-long suspension bridge. The shelter features an open park-like feeling and has a beautiful knotty-pine ceiling and skylights. There is no vehicle access to the bridge shelter or any sites on the west side of the park. Near the shelter are several yurts that sleep six people each and have electricity and heat. We offer a wedding package that includes the Bridge Shelter all day the day of the wedding, four tent sites, two 3-sided camping shelters, all six yurts, the camping container (sleeps 4), and a fire pit area. You'll feel like you're out in the countryside even though the park is located a short drive from Redmond and the greater Seattle area. Note: the wedding package does not include campsites #34 and #35, the small group campsite, large group campsite or the amphitheater area.
