Tucked away by the Canadian border in the northernmost part of Washington State, Nooksack is as scenic as it is tranquil. This charming, friendly town is best known as the home of Darius and Tabitha Kinsey, two trailblazing, early 20th-century photographers who documented everyday life and industrial processes in the area.
Though the town’s business district was ravaged by wildfires during the 1900s, its sense of civic pride remained strong, and today, Nooksack is a peaceful bedroom community of about 1,500 souls nestled among the woods and waterways of the beautiful Nooksack Valley. Nooksack may be small, but there’s certainly room for a veterinary clinic, and 24-hour care is available in nearby Bellingham.You won’t find a designated dog park or off-leash area in Nooksack, but fur-tunately, you and your pooch can still sniff out some exercise options! City Park in the heart of Nooksack is both picturesque and relatively canine-friendly. Not only that, but nature-loving pups and owners will be glad to know that Nooksack is just a stone’s throw away from some pawesome state parks and hiking trails. And don’t worry -- you’ll find plenty of places to let your furry friend run free just a short drive away!
