Coal Creek Group Campground sits along the scenic Mountain Loop Road in the Mt. Baker-Snoqualmie National Forest.


Facilities

The campground offers one large group campsite, making it a perfect setting for families or groups wanting privacy. The site can accommodate about 25 guests and is ideal for tent mixed with RVs. The site is equipped with tables, tent pads, campfire rings with grills and vault toilets.

Nearby attractions

Visitors enjoy the North Cascades and Mt. Rainer National Parks, where interpretive programs and exhibits offer education about the diverse landscape and history of the area. The spectacular Pacific Crest Trail (PCT), one of the world's premier National Scenic Trails, showcases some of North America's most fantastic scenery, winding its way its way from Mexico to Canada through California, Oregon and Washington, and is accessible near the campground.

Natural feaures

Located in the majestic Cascade region of Washington, the Mt. Baker-Snoqualmie National Forest showcases rugged peaks, scenic rivers and lush forests. The banks of the Stillaguamish River are lined with old-growth forests of cedar, fir and hemlock. On a clear day visitors can spot Mt. Baker, the most prominent feature of the Mt. Baker Wilderness Area. Rising to an elevation of 10,781 feet, this active volcano is perpetually snow-capped and mantled with an extensive network of creeping glaciers. Mt. Baker's summit, Grant Peak, is actually a 1,300-foot-deep mound of ice, which hides a massive volcanic crater. The surrounding undeveloped wilderness, clean streams and diverse forests support an abundance of wildlife. In addition to being home for a multitude of mammals, birds, amphibians and reptiles, the area sustains more rare species such as lynx, moose, wolves and wolverine. Grizzly bear sightings have been confirmed in the Cascade region, though black bear sightings are more common.

Recreation

Coal Creek is a prime location for hiking, fishing, picnicking and horseback riding in summer and early fall, and offers excellent skiing and snowshoeing in the winter months. Hikers may want to explore the nearby Big Four Ice Caves Trail off of the Mountain Loop Highway. The trail ends with a view of the ice fields and the immense north face of the 6,153 foot Big Four Mountain. The caves are exposed during August and remain visible through October. The nearby Gold Basin Mill Pond interpretive trail is also accessible from the campground. This interpretive site includes a short, barrier-free trail that passes by mill relics and ends on a floating viewpoint looking across the old millpond. Interpretive signs discuss the history of the mill and the wildlife in the area. The trail is located directly across from the Gold Basin Campground.

Questions about RVs?

Q.

What type of RV should I choose?

A.

Start by determining how many people are planning to travel with you. Going on a solo-journey? Choose a camper van or a teardrop trailer. Bringing the whole family along for the ride? Consider a spacious Class A or five-wheel.

You’ll also want to consider amenities. For example, if you’re planning to cook on the road, you’ll want a kitchenette. If your campground doesn’t have public restrooms, you’ll want to search RVs with bathrooms. Check out full descriptions of our models to help you decide here.


Q.

Do the RVs have bathrooms?

A.

Yes. Class A’s, Class B’s, and Class C’s and five-Wheels typically have bathrooms. Depending on where you plan on camping, you’ll want to double-check the availability of restrooms if selecting a rig without a bathroom. Nervous about renting an RV with a bathroom? Owners can help show you how to clean the tank or will offer to do it for you for a fee.


Q.

How does check-in work?

A.

Once an Owner approves your RV reservation, you can coordinate a time to pick up your rig or have it delivered to your doorstep or campsite. At that point, the owner will do a key exchange with you and walk you through the RV and answer any questions you might have.
