Sammamish is an Eastside suburb of Seattle in King County, Washington, United States. It was incorporated in 1999. The population was 34,104 at the 2000 census. And as of 2009 its population was at 42,336.



The Sammamish Plateau was part of unincorporated King County for most of its history. A vote in 1991 to join neighboring Issaquah failed, as did a vote on incorporation the following year. A renewed movement to become a city, born of frustration with development policies set by the county government, met with voter approval in 1998. Sammamish was officially incorporated on August 31, 1999.[3]


Neighboring cities include Redmond to the north and Issaquah to the south.

According to the United States Census Bureau, the city has a total area of 18.3 square miles (47.4 km²), of which, 18.0 square miles (46.7 km²) of it is land and 0.2 square miles (0.6 km²) of it (1.37%) is water.[4]

Situated on the shores and hilly terrain east of Lake Sammamish, the city features a landscape of trees, mountains, and lakes. Other than Lake Sammamish, Beaver Lake and Pine Lake are the two biggest lakes in Sammamish.

Sammamish has a mild Marine West Coast or oceanic climate.
