Lower Goodell Group Campground


Lower Goodell Group Campground is a convenient site on the banks of Goodell Creek in North Cascades National Park Service Complex. Don your walking shoes and hit the trails, explore the nearby community of Newhalem or relax next to the cascading creek.


Facilities

The facility has a picnic shelter and pit toilet for visitors' convenience. No potable water. Water is available at the main Goodell Creek campground on the south side of State Route 20. The campground has two group sites, which can each comfortably fit 12 to 20 people each; the capacity is 50 per site. The nearest store is in Newhalem. 

Nearby attractions

Newhalem is within a short walking distance from the campsites. Campers can also walk to the North Cascades Visitor Center and the Skagit Information Center (in Newhalem).

Natural feaures

The site lies among lush ancient forests of western redcedar, western hemlock, and Douglas-fir trees. The creek's headwaters begin in the surrounding mountains, pick up cold, clean glacial meltwater along the way and eventually empty into the Skagit River. The creek provides a sampling of the colorful crystalline rocks of the North Cascade Core, which formed deep underground and are now revealed in the rugged terrain of the North Cascade Range.

Recreation

Nature abounds in the Goodell Gorge, where visitors can enjoy exploring the scenery, viewing wildlife and birding. Black bears inhabit the area, so caution must be taken while hiking, picnicking or camping. Campers can access hiking trails from within the facility. The creek and nearby Skagit River offer fishing for trout, salmon and steelhead. There is no boating or swimming at the site.

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.
