Overview

Sulphur Creek Campground is a primitive site in a beautiful forest along the banks of the scenic Suiattle River and Sulpher Creek. It is a remote haven set amongst towering old growth Douglas fir trees in the Mt. Baker-Snoquamie National Forest.

Hikers frequently camp here to explore the many trails surrounding the facility. It has moderate, enjoyable summer temperatures throughout the camping season.

Natural Features:

The Suiattle River is a federally designated National Wild and Scenic River. Though the glacier-fed water is too cold and the current too strong to swim in, the river creates a beautiful backdrop and soothing sounds for campers.

Tall, old growth forest provide abundant shade for campers and habitat for black bears and other wildlife.

Recreation:

The biggest draw to Sulphur Creek Campground is hiking. The well-known Suiattle Trail and numerous others begin within a few miles of the campground. The area is part of the North Cascades range.

Facilities:

This primitive site provides no drinking water, though there is a pit toilet. There are 20 individual campsites, each with a picnic table and fire ring. Campers may purchase supplies in the nearby town of Darrington.
