Grounds Map

Fort Worden Map with Directions.jpg

Hey Everyone! Above is a great map to show the location of everything on property. All classes will be in the Commons building in the middle of the map.

The dances will be at the JFK building on the North side of the property. (It's on the upper right of the map.)


Parking is easy enough. I've drawn a path from the entrance to the 2 closest parking lots to classes. For the dances, the closest parking lots are the same. Don't worry though, the dance hall isn't that far from the parking lots. You can also find parking on Eisenhower Ave., even though it's not shown.


Don't worry about remembering the layout, we will have maps for you when you get there! 


We have acquired accommodations on property!

There are now single dorm rooms available for reservation. Just look for the Dorm Room selection here to book!

The dorm rooms at Dorm 225 will include basic amenities for all campers, such as sheets, pillows, and (2) blankets per bed. There will also be soap and towels provided for each guest. Each closet will come with a few hangers, but we would suggest bringing a few if you have a lot to hang up.

As shown in the picture, there is a (3) drawer dresser, a mirror, and a trash can in each room. Additionally, there is a wall mounted desk and chair in each room.

The floor has (2) restrooms with showers, which will be designated as male and female.


Due to another booking, most of the accommodations at the Fort have been booked.

But fear not! We have booked room blocks at hotels in the wonderful downtown of Port Townsend!

Only a quick 5 minute drive from the Fort! No car? No problem! Check below for transportation to the fort!


If you are looking for accommodations, please contact the following:

Port Townsend Inn

Each room has a fridge, microwave, coffee maker, and free WiFi!

Also, bring your pets for a small additional fee!

When booking, ask about the rooms for Harvest Moon Weekend.


Fort Accommodations (Where applicable)

Fort Worden has many great options for housing from campsites to large 6 bedroom houses. The accommodations on property make for a great place to spend time with friends, enjoy the comforts of home, and have your own dance parties well after the dance is over. Each of the houses on property include a full kitchen for your convenience.

The campsites are also very nice for those looking to stay on a budget. They have (2) separate campsites, one in the forest, and one on the beach, depending on what kind of atmosphere you are looking for.

To make reservations, visit Fort Worden's Stay Here page to see what is available.

Also, to get 10% off the normal rate, just type in Harvest in group code on the reservations page.

Local Transportation

Not everyone will be bringing a car, or will want to drive to the fort every day. Luckily, there is a great bus service that goes from downtown Port Townsend to the Fort!

Jefferson Transit has a bus that takes you door to door. On the weekend, the bus runs from 9:00 AM to 6:00 PM, which would be great for classes!

For those who will need transportation after the dances at night, we will provide shuttle vans to downtown as part of your fee.
