Search Tacoma Washington

Come enjoy a portion of Washington State's history from the 1880's through the 1940's as it pertains to the "Steam Era of Logging". With photographs, paintings, artifacts and equipment displays, Camp 6 takes the visitor back in time from when horse and ox teams hauled out the timber up through the last days that steam powered "Donkeys" and Railroads worked the woods. Visitors will see first hand what life in the logging camps and woods of Western Washington was like.

Located on a 14 acre forested site inside Point Defiance Park, and listed on the National Register of Historic Place, Camp 6 is a place for all to visit.
