No Outside Alcohol / Cannabis Allowed

Washington State Liquor and Cannabis Board and King County Parks regulations prohibit outside alcohol at Timber!

Any campers in violation of this policy will be asked to take their alcohol back to their cars.

While cannabis is legal in WA state it is illegal to consume cannabis in public. Cannabis is not allowed at Timber!


Two feet of space is required between tents in the General and Quiet camping areas. Set up camp expecting to have your neighbors within that proximity of your camp.

Be respectful to your neighbors and please keep noise to a minimum after hours. If you’d like to socialize after hours, please walk to any number of great spaces that are away from campsites.

Drinking Water

There are several water sources around the park and camping areas. Drinking water is available in the Main Stage area, the General Camping restroom area, and in the Yurt Camping area. Please use your refilable water bottles when possible.

Like any good camper, try to follow the “leave no trace” backpacker motto and pack out what you pack in. Please dispose of your trash at the end of the festival.
