Silver Fir is made up of only 16 campsites, two of which are for larger groups. Each of the sites comes with a picnic table and a fire ring, and all lots are situated either right on the river or only a short path away from it.
The nightly cost here for a standard site is $16.69, but expect to pay $2 more during holidays. You'll also find a group picnic shelter at this campground where up to 25 people can enjoy time together sheltered from the rain or sun. There is drinking water available on-site along with metal trash receptacles, but you'll have to stock up on all supplies -- including firewood -- at the nearby town of Glacier, some 20 miles away.
The Nooksack River which runs through the camp is an excellent spot to cast a few lines or pop in for a dip, but the activities offered outside of the campground are what attract most visitors. Take a scenic drive up Mount Baker or head into the woods with your woofer on one of the many hiking trails. Or if days by the lake are what you seek, just a short drive away is Baker Lake, a place for all things fun during the summer months.
Your pooch is more than welcome to stay at the grounds, and while the leash rules are unclear, we recommend keeping your dog close to you at all times. There are bears in this forest, so cleaning up any pup waste and putting it into the trash receptacle is highly important so as to not attract these large predators to your site.
If hanging out by a beautiful river in a national forest at the bottom of a mountain nearly 11,000 feet tall sounds like your kind of adventure, head to Silver Fir Campgrounds next season!
