Why we love Circle 8...

Since its incorporation in 1971, Circle 8 Ranch has hosted multitudes of guests who have come to Square Dance, Round Dance, Clog, or just camp and enjoy the forested atmosphere.


Circle 8 Ranch is located south of I-90 off of West Nelson Siding Road between Easton and Cle Elum. The Ranch is about a quarter mile off of the road and neighbors a barn known for hosting weddings and other events. Wheat farmers and wranglers also call the surrounding area home. To the rear of the Ranch is miles of wilderness for hikers, hunters and off-road motorists to enjoy. The Ranch also has two lakes, perfect for dipping your feet in or jumping right in for a splash!

The Dance Hall

Our dance hall has a 3200 sq. ft. wooden floor with an elevated stage for the callers, cuerers and other hosts. Whether you square dance, two-step, jive or even clog, this hall is the perfect location for friends and family to dance. The hall also contains a kitchen (ask about our yummy cookies...). We have provided cushioned seating but also have a "bring-your-favorite chair" seating area. Hearing enhancement available for all programs.

Activities & Entertainment

Other amenities include a spring fed potable water system, an underground sprinkling system, a horse shoe pit, a mowed grassy play area for outdoor games, a multi-purpose building for ping pong matches and a lake for swimming.

RV and Camping Sites

Our campground has about 100 grassy RV spots with water and electricity, 7 of which have sewer. There is also a community dump station.

If you want to pitch a tent, there is nearly an endless amount of spots to choose from.

Cle Elum, Washington

Immediately surrounding Circle 8 Ranch are miles of forested trails to hike and streams to fish. Located nearby, you will find both State and National Parks, the historic towns of Roslyn, Ronald, Cle Elum, active and abandoned gold mines, and an 18-hole golf course.

Circle 8 Ranch is located on the east slope of the Cascade Mountains, so weather during the summer months could be quite warm in the day and cool at night.  Be prepared and bring a warm sweater or jacket.
