Overview

Overview

Situated just off the banks of Park Creek in Mt. Baker-Snoqualmie National Forest, this campground offers some of the most stunning scenery in the Northern Cascade Range in Washington.

Scattered beneath a towering canopy of old-growth forest, the sites in Park Creek campground are widely spaced and all are within walking distance of the river's edge, making it an ideal setting for visitors wanting to camp in a secluded setting.

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.

Mt. Baker, the most prominent feature of the Mt. Baker Wilderness Area, dominates the landscape on a clear day. 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.

Wildlife in the area include mountain goats, coyotes, pine marten and a variety of migratory birds and native fish.

Recreation:

In addition to being a prime location for hiking, boating and fishing in summer and early fall, Park Creek offers excellent skiing and snowshoeing in the winter months.

Over 1,500 miles of trails in the area can entice any hiker to get outdoors. From smooth paths meandering through deep quiet forests to challenging ascents up boulder-studded mountains, opportunities abound for every skill level.

Shadow of the Sentinels Trail, a barrier-free interpretive trail winding through dense forest growth, sits nearby. Huge Douglas fir and cedar trees tower above a forest floor of ferns, moss and berry bushes, and interpretive signs along the route explain the dynamics of this 500-year-old ancient forest. The trail is constructed of asphalt and boardwalks with grades no greater than 8 percent.

Facilities:

Park Creek campground offers standard sites, accommodating both tent and RV camping. The campground is equipped with tables, vault toilets and campfire rings with grills.

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.
