Swift Creek Campground on the shores of Baker Lake. Renee Bodine, US Forest Service.

Campers don’t have to wait much longer for campfires, s’mores and star-filled nights. The Mt. Baker-Snoqualmie National Forest will open most campgrounds by May 16. Snow keeps the San Juan and Troublesome Creek campgrounds in the Skykomish Ranger District and Corral Pass in the Snoqualmie Ranger Districts closed. San Jaun and Troublesome campgrounds, depending on snow levels on Jack’s Pass, will open May 29. Coral Pass is a higher-elevation campground and usually opens mid-July when the snow melts off.

Find a forest campsite and check availability with the campground concessionaire, HooDoo, or contact Rob Ralph for more information at 360-691-1841. Reserve a campground on the National Recreation Reservation System. Check current trail and road conditions before visiting the forest.
