FYI...Here's the story of the relocation of the Mule Barn Camp from the Mule Barn at Fort Worden to the Jefferson County Fairgrounds...I got a call from the Fort Worden park director, Brian Hageman, informing me that our reservation for the Mule Barn has been cancelled! It all has to do with the park leasing out the land and buildings to the FWPDA, who takes over on May 1, 2014. According to Brian, the Mule Barn is going to be used for equipment storage rather than camping. He said that there was no alternative for us within the park and I would have to make other arrangements!

But the good news is, that I was able to secure a patch of grassy ground at the fairgrounds for us to occupy! That grassy ground comes with a 30' x 60' covered structure with a cement floor, restrooms with showers, and picnic tables. Click here to see an aerial view. (I can't make this link work properly! Right click and open it in a new tab.) Like the Mule Barn, there is some limited electricity for charging your phones, potable water, garbage collection and a place to wash your dishes. In addition, there are four shower stalls in each bathroom (no tokens needed!) and flush toilets! Also, there is NO extra charge for parking your car! Late jamming is allowed. Your dogs are welcome. But, they will have to be on a leash at all times. The manager said that he'd have ice for sale. The fairgrounds are about seven tenths of a mile from Fort Worden's front gate. Scroll down to see the ground level pictures that are below the PayPal link.

Now, I know that this location isn't as ideal as the Mule Barn, but I wanted to have an alternative camping spot for those who don't have any other choice such as opting for the dorms (which can be quite expensive). This is the best alternative that I could find close to Fort Worden. Feel free to email or call me if you have any questions.
Best Regards,
