Airport Cameras

Easton airport was constructed in the 1930's by the federal government as an emergency field for DC-3s crossing the Cascades through Snoqualmie Pass. It was acquired by the state in 1958 to preserve it for future use. Easton remains an important airport on the eastern approaches to Snoqualmie and Stampede Pass. Perhaps one of our most visited airports, it has the ingredients to make it a one-of-a-kind airport. This field has medium intensity lighting coupled with ample room for parking, camping, hiking, and just relaxing in the quiet of nature. There is a stream at the east end of the airport which runs as clear as any you have seen. A small store is approximately one mile south on the access road.

The runway is 2,640 feet of turf, with a 300-foot displaced threshold on the west end. Field elevation is 2221 feet, and density altitude problems can be encountered in the summer. Trees surround the airport and there are trees in both approaches close in. Deer, elk, turkeys are common visitors at this airport. Recreational ATVs and motorcyclists can use the perimeter access road but should not be on the airport runway. The surface is somewhat rough and will be soft when wet. We recommend an overflight to check field conditions and obstructions. The airport is generally open from June 1 to Oct. 1.

The airport is visited by approximately 30 aircraft per month. It is an excellent facility for mountain flying/soft field practice.

The Boeing Employees Flying Association (BEFA) has adopted this airport and conducts annual spring volunteer maintenance though the Adopt an Airport Program.

The web camera is owned and operated by Washington State Department of Transportation (WSDOT) Aviation.

The camera is located on a new tower placed on the south side about mid-field and has a new obstruction beacon. The camera captures four views that should indicate the direction: North, South, East, and West along with a time/date stamp. The camera operates 24 hours a day with the images updating every 15 minutes.

To report a problem with the camera contact: Paul Wolf, 360-618-2477 or email paul.wolf@wsdot.wa.gov.
