Description

Located along the Middle Fork of the Snoqualmie River, the Middle Fork campground is a great spot to stay for easy access to all the beauty Middle Fork has to offer. Nested within the Mount Baker-Snoqualmie National Forest, the campground provides a place to camp while exploring some of the 1,500 miles of trail throughout the area, for viewing amazing vistas of Mt. Baker on clear days, or for a chance to spot wildlife in the area such as mountain goats, coyotes, pine marten and a variety of migratory birds and native fish. This campground is frequently visited, and volunteers work to maintain the popular picnic areas and campsites. 

Project Difficulty
Moderate to Strenuous
Age Restriction
Ages 14 and up.
