Overview

Overview

Horseshoe Cove Campground is nestled under a towering canopy of forest along the banks of Baker Lake in the stunning Mt. Baker- Snoqualmie National Forest.

Located east of Seattle, on the west side of the Cascades between the Canadian border and Mt. Rainier National Park, this area is one of the most spectacular in the the country, showcasing glacier-covered peaks, wide mountain meadows and old-growth forests.

Natural Features:

On a clear day visitors will see Mt. Baker, the most prominent feature of the Wilderness Area. Rising to an elevation of 10,781 feet, the active volcano from which the forest takes its name 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.

In the springtime, a towering old-growth forest shelters an explosion of the area's common forest flowers such as western trillium, twinflower, foamflower, coralroot and twistedstalk.

Recreation:

In addition to being a prime location for hiking, boating, fishing, swimming, picnicking and horseback riding in summer, Horseshoe Cove offers excellent skiing and snowshoeing in the winter months.

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

Baker Lake Trail is an easy family hike that can be accessed from the reservoir. The trail begins in a stand of Douglas fir and contours above the eastern shoreline of Baker Lake, offering glimpses of Mt. Baker with the lake in the foreground.

Facilities:

There are 39 campsites at Horseshoe Cove Campground, including three large group sites.

With several sites located at the lake's edge, and others in close vicinity, this campground offers visitors the ideal opportunity to camp near the shoreline or under a canopy of trees.

Picnic areas, trails, and lakeside views, along with the conveniences of firewood, drinking water, and flush toilets, give visitors the opportunity to enjoy the outdoors while still having many of the conveniences of home.

Lake access and a boat ramp are available at the campground.

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 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.
