Discover one of Washinton's most beautiful active volcanoes at Douglas Fir Campground, found at the bottom of the imposing Mount Baker, which reaches some 10,781 feet into the heavens. Bring your favorite furry friend to stay in the magnificent national forest that surrounds the mountain's base and see how wild and incredible this landmark truly is.
Campers headed to Douglas Fir will not be met with lists of amenities or scheduled day programs. Instead, upon arriving, you will find lovely, spacious campsites between tall conifers, all well-manicured and welcoming to any outdoors enthusiast. There is drinking water on-site, and each lot comes with fire rings, tent pads, and picnic tables. The area is used heavily during the warmer months, and with only 22 sites on offer, booking ahead is definitely advised. Nightly rates start at $18.54, with slightly higher fees being charged for the larger sites that sit right next to the North Fork Nooksack River. While there are no hookups to be found at this campground, a host is on the premises to address any issues you may have during your stay.
While staying at Douglas Fir Campground, you'll have so much beauty to explore around you! Take your pupper on one of the many trails through the forest, or hop in the car and head up the byway to get close to the mountain's summit. There is also whitewater rafting available at the river, or you can just cast a line in the water if relaxation is more your thing.
Canine campers are welcome at this camping area, though keeping your pooch on-leash is advised as there are bears in the national forest. A loose doggo can run into the woods and come back with a grizzly on their tail, which is absolutely no fun for anyone at the facility. Because of the many animals that live in the woods, it is also important to collect all of your pup's waste -- even when on hikes around the grounds themselves. By doing this, you'll be keeping all of the inhabitants of both the campground and the forest safe.
For an adventure of a lifetime, explore the beauty of Mount Baker from Douglas Fir Campground!
