Camping reservations usually sell out a few weeks out from the race. Be sure to put in your reservation early, or sign up to volunteer to get free guaranteed camping! Most parks do have first come first served sites available, but these are limited. You’ll want to get there early on Friday to have the best shot at getting a non-reservable site.
Camping on site at Lewis Creek Park is still available for volunteers! We have room for you, sign up for a shift and camping here: www.runsignup.com/BWT
Please note, ONLY volunteers are allowed to camp at Lewis Creek Park. If you are bringing the whole family, each person must volunteer.
Camp On Site at Lewis Creek Park
All volunteers get to stay for free at Lewis Creek Park just steps away from all the action. If you volunteer the day you are not racing or if a friend or family member volunteers for you, you can all stay on site and be that much closer to all the fun. Lewis Creek Park is typically a day use only facility but the Linn County Parks Dept. has granted us use for the weekend. Showers are available up the road at Sunnyside Campground. If you wish to camp at Lewis Creek, you must register as a volunteer and select the camping option on your registration.
Sunnyside is located just a mile up the road and sits on the Olympic and Half-Iron run courses. This is a full amenity campground complete with RV sights and showers. Make you RESERVATION now through Linn County Parks and Recreation. If you let them know in your reservation that you are with the triathlon and/or what group you are with, they will arrange your campsite reservations together!
Other campgrounds in the area are: River Bend, Waterloo and Edgewater
