Overview

Overview

Silver Fir Campground is situated along the North Fork Nooksack River in Mt. Baker-Snoqualmie National Forest. The area offers stunning scenery and access to numerous recreational activities within the North Cascades in Washington.

Natural Features:

Towering Silver Fir Campground , western red cedar and hemlock trees provide plenty of shade. Most sites are just a short walk to the river.

Rugged peaks, scenic rivers and abundant wildlife define the Mt. Baker-Snoqualmie National Forest and surrounding designated wilderness areas. On a clear day visitors can see Mt. Baker, which rises to an elevation of 10,781 feet. The active volcano is perpetually snow-capped. 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 ranges from mountain goats in the higher elevations to pine marten and porcupine on the forest floor. Migratory birds and native fish find ample habitat in the varied ecosystems as well.

Recreation:

The area surrounding the campground is a prime location for hiking, fishing and picnicking. Hikers and backpackers are especially fortunate to have access to a variety of spectacular trails within close proximity.

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

Skyline Divide Trail begins a few miles west of the campground and is one of the most popular hikes in the Mt. Baker Ranger District. The trail climbs steadily for two miles through forests and lush, open meadows with stellar views of glaciated Mt. Baker. The trail then wanders along Skyline Divide for another 1.5 miles, offering views of rivers, forests and countless peaks.

The North Fork Nooksack River offers fishing, rafting and kayaking opportunities. A launch site for rafts and kayaks is available about 11 miles west near Douglas Fir Campground.

Facilities:

Silver Fir Campground is a smaller campground, offering sites to accommodate tents and RVs. A group picnic shelter for up to 25 people is also available. Picnic tables and campfire rings with grills are provided, as are vault toilets and drinking water. No electrical hookups are available.

Groceries, firewood and other conveniences are available in the nearby community of Glacier.

Nearby Attractions:

Visit or stay in one of the historic lookouts in the area. Lookouts are tangible symbols of Forest Service heritage, perched on high peaks with unobstructed views where they have been used to detect and control fires.

Take some time to visit nearby North Cascades National Park or Mount Rainer National Park. Considered scenic wonderlands, the parks offer a fantasic glimpse of glaciers, subalpine ecology and volcanic landscapes.

Hike a portion of the spectacular Pacific Crest Trail (PCT), one of the world's premier National Scenic Trails. This trail showcases some of North America's most fantastic scenery as it winds its way from Mexico to Canada through California, Oregon and Washington.
