SITES FOR PRIVACY
Mount Baker–Snoqualmie National Forest
If you like the convenience of car camping but hate the crowds, blaze your own trail in a “cowboy” campsite in any of Washington’s abundant, publicly owned (that’s you and me) national forestlands. Just don’t go if you can’t change a tire or cook a backcountry meal for yourself. National Forest Road 3040 off State Route 542 in the Mount Baker–Snoqualmie National Forest offers some excellent out-of-the-way sites.
Need To Know: A Northwest Forest Pass is required to park within the national forest.
HIKE IN CAMPING
Chains Lake Trail
Head up to Artist Point, located between Mount Baker and Mount Shuksan.
