Once you arrive on Vashon Island (at the ferry dock on the north side of the island), take the main highway through the towns of Vashon and Burton.

About 3 miles beyond Burton after a fair uphill stretch, take a sharp right turn onto Wax Orchard Road. Go about 1/2 mile and turn left onto Camp Sealth Road SW. The road will wind down into the camp, and you’ll see the Rounds Hall building in front of you.
