Overview

Overview

Situated on the banks of North Fork Nooksack River in Mt. Baker-Snoqualmie National Forest, Douglas Fir Campground offers stunning scenery and access to numerous recreational activities popular in the Northern Cascade Range in Washington.

Natural Features:

Hemmed in by several designated wilderness areas, the Mt. Baker-Snoqualmie National Forest showcases rugged peaks, sparkling alpine lakes and old-growth forests, providing visitors with a variety of scenic landscapes.

On a clear day visitors can spot Mt. Baker, the most prominent feature of the Mt. Baker Wilderness Area. Rising to an elevation of 10,781 feet, this active volcano is perpetually snow-capped and mantled with an extensive network of creeping glaciers. Mt. Baker's summit, Grant Peak, is actually a 1,300-foot-deep mound of ice, which hides a massive volcanic crater.

Wildlife in the area include a variety of salmon species, elk, bald eagle and cougar. Migratory birds and an occasional black bear find ample habitat in the varied ecosystems as well.

Recreation:

The campground provides a prime location for hiking, fishing and picnicking in summer and early fall.

Hikers and backpackers are especially fortunate to have access to a variety of trails near the campground and in the surrounding areas.

Horseshoe Bend Trail is an easy forest hike along the Mt. Baker Scenic Byway, highlighting old-growth forests, gushing whitewater and forest wildflowers. The trail follows the North Fork of the Nooksack River upstream to a stunning view of East Church Mountain.

One of the most popular hikes in the Mt. Baker Ranger District is the Skyline Divide Trail. This trail climbs steadily for two miles through forest into lush, open meadows with sweeping views of glacier-draped Mt. Baker. The trail then wanders along Skyline Divide for another 1.5 miles, offering views of rivers, forests and countless peaks.

Facilities:

Douglas Fir Campground offers standard sites, accomodating tents and RVs. Several campsites located at the river's edge, while others shaded by an old-growth forest. A historic sheltered picnic area, constructed by the Civilian Conservation Crew, is also available for reservation.

The sites are equipped with tables, vault toilets and drinking water.

Nearby Attractions:

Visitors enjoy the North Cascades and Mt. Rainer National Parks, where interpretive programs and exhibits offer education about the diverse landscape and history of the area.

The spectacular Pacific Crest Trail (PCT), one of the world's premier National Scenic Trails, showcases some of North America's most fantastic scenery, winding its way its way from Mexico to Canada through California, Oregon and Washington, and is accessible near the campground.
