Camp Brown Day Use Area was constructed as a picnic area in the summer of 2019 through a collaborative effort between the Mountains to Sound Greenway Trust and the United States Forest Service Mount Baker-Snoqualmie National Forest. Located alongside the Wild & Scenic River, the Middle Fork River, this picnic area offers scenic vistas and safe access to the river for visitors to utilize and explore. In addition to the picnic sites, there is an interpretive loop trail circling the area. This trail has been constructed and implemented by excavators and other large machinery and is now in need of some habitat restoration to promote revegetation of native plant species.
