Troublesome Creek Campground offers 25 sites nestled in a mixed conifer forest on the banks of the scenic North Fork Skykomish River and its tributary, Troublesome Creek. Water is abundant in this area, offering visitors easy access to fishing, kayaking, and swimming. There is also a mile long nature trail that follows the creek. Guests will be lulled to sleep by its subtle, but ever-present gurgle. This campground is ideal for escaping the hustle of everyday life to enjoy time with friends and family. Countless recreation opportunities await visitors with easy access to the Wild Sky and Henry M Jackson Wilderness areas.
