Located along the East bank of the Snoqualmie River, Tolt-MacDonald is a King County Park within easy walk of the town of Carnation. Just 40 minutes from downtown Seattle, the park has tables and firepits, overnight campsites and day use sites, as well as soccer fields and a historic barn used for events.
A 500-foot suspension bridge crosses the Snoqualmie River and offers views of the Cascades. During the summer and fall, you can see salmon swimming upriver and osprey soaring above.
The park's wetlands offer great birdwatching, and are a key part of the wetland habitat used by resident and migratory birds along the middle part of the Snoqualmie River. Across the river and just to the North, King County's Carnation Marsh Natural Area also provides a place for birds to rest and live.
