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.


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.


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.
