Getting to Spokatopia
Parking and shuttle options for Spokatopia can change each year so check back for current details and changes to the options that were available at the 2019 event.
Camp Sekani is located between downtown Spokane and Spokane Valley on Upriver Drive on the north bank of the Spokane River (6707 E. Upriver Drive). Parking will be limited at the Camp Sekani/Boulder Beach area, so plan on using one of these other more fun options to get there.
Roadside Parking: Park on the shoulder/bike lane of E. Upriver Drive in select, signed locations between Shields Park and Boulder Beach during the festival. Obey all signs and only park where it is clearly allowed and safe and then walk the short distance to Camp Sekani Park. We have applied for city and county permits to allow for parking in the bike lanes on both sides of E. Upriver Drive between Shields Park and Boulder Beach where signed.
Park & Ride Your Bike: Park your vehicle at one of our nearby park and bike locations and ride your bike to Spokatopia. The two park and bike spots are Pasadena Elementary (8508 E. Upriver Drive) parking lot (1-mile east from Camp Sekani Park on Upriver Drive) or at the Avista Utilities parking lot (5 miles west from Camp Sekani accessed off of N Perry due to road construction on E Upriver Drive).
Park & Walk: Park near Shields Park/Minnehaha (the paved and dirt lots just west of Camp Sekani on the north side of E. Upriver Drive) and walk/bike from there.
Ride Your Bike & Park at the Bike Corral: The best way to get to the festival is to ride the Centennial Trail from your neighborhood or from one of the festival parking areas (see above). Spokatopia will have a large, secure bike corral at Camp Sekani to keep your bike (and/or bags) safe while you’re enjoying the festival at no charge. Plus, everyone who rides their bike to Spokatopia and checks it in at the free bike corral gets a free Kate’s Real Food bar and the chance to win other prizes from local bike shops!
Thank you to Kate’s Real Food for sponsoring this year’s bike corral!
