Silver Fir Campground is situated along the North Fork Nooksack River in Mt. Baker-Snoqualmie National Forest. The area offers stunning scenery and access to numerous recreational activities within the North Cascades in Washington.


Facilities

Silver Fir Campground is a smaller campground, offering sites to accommodate tents and RVs. A group picnic shelter for up to 25 people is also available. Picnic tables and campfire rings with grills are provided, as are vault toilets and drinking water. No electrical hookups are available. Groceries, firewood and other conveniences are available 20 minutes away in the nearby community of Glacier.

Nearby attractions

Visitors enjoy hiking, picnicking and photography in the Heather Meadows area located along the upper reaches of the Mt. Baker Scenic Byway, SR 542. Many popular hikes and climbing routes are located in the surrounding Mt. Baker Wilderness and backpackers enjoy visiting the northern reaches of North Cascades National Park.

Natural feaures

The Mt. Baker-Snoqualmie National Forest showcases rugged peaks, sparkling alpine lakes and old-growth forests, providing visitors with unique and surprising landscapes. Mt. Baker, the most prominent feature of the Mt. Baker Wilderness, dominates the landscape on a clear day. Rising to an elevation of 10,781 feet, the active volcano is perpetually snow-capped and mantled with an extensive network of creeping glaciers. Mt. Baker's summit, Grant Peak, is a 1,300-foot-deep mound of ice, which hides a massive volcanic crater. Wildlife in the area includes mountain goats traversing the higher elevations to squirrels and black bears in the forests. Migratory birds and native fish find ample habitat in the varied ecosystems as well.

Recreation

The campground provides a prime location for hiking and picnicking in summer and early fall and is a non-motorized Sno-Park in the winter. Hikers and backpackers are especially fortunate to have access to a variety of trails near the campground and in the surrounding Mt. Baker Wilderness area. Trails accessed from Hannegan Pass Road, less than a mile from the campground, lead into stunning scenery in the Mt. Baker Wilderness and North Cascades National Park.

The smallest and nimblest of fully enclosed RVs. Drives like a van. Loves posing for Instagram.

A formal-sounding name for camper van, but just as photogenic.

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.
