The 17th Hope Mountain Barter Faire is taking place June 21, 22, & 23, 2019, at Lake Selmac County Park. The official address  is 100 Hickenbottom Road, Selma, OR 97538, though apparently GPS and MapQuest, etc., don’t know this road exists! (so better to follow our directions than to assume your device will get you there).


From the North: Take I-5 South to Exit 58 (or I-5 North to Exit 55). Continue to Highway 199 and head South for about 23 miles. Approximately 1/2 mile past Deer Creek Road in Selma (where the Ray’s supermarket, Post Office, and 76 gas station are), turn left onto Lakeshore Drive.

From the South: Head north on Highway 199 through Cave Junction. Roughly 8 miles past Cave Junction, just before reaching Selma, turn right onto Lakeshore Drive.

From Lakeshore Drive: Continue 2.5 miles to the park entrance. As you approach the lake, stay left at the fork in the road to head toward Mallard Loop (i.e. do not turn right onto Reeves Creek Rd). You will pass the Lake Selmac Resort on your left and the lake itself will be on your right. Turn right onto McMullen Creek Road and then take the first right onto Hickenbottom. Follow signs to the faire.
