Swift Creek Campground (formerly Baker Lake Resort) is located about halfway up on Baker Lake across the road from Park Creek. The cabins are no longer there, but the area has been upgraded with about 50 private campsites that accommodate either tents or RVs. The campground includes a day-use area by the lakeshore with picnic tables, one shelter and grills, a paved boat ramp suitable for larger boats and a 20-slip dock.
Camping: $18/night for single site, $34/night for multi site, $75/night for group site
Extra vehicle: $9/night
Day use: $5
Overnight parking:$9 for boats & vehicles in overflow and boat launch parking areas.
Rules and regulations governing occupancy and use in national forest developed recreation sites are enforced. A day-use is charged if you are not camping overnight. During Sockeye fishing season boat launch ramp use is extremely heavy.
Water is available for drinking and RV water tank fill-up.
Camping: 50% discount for single site camping with any of these passes: Interagency Senior, Interagency Access, Golden Age, or Golden Access pass.
The concessionaire expects to have small fishing boats, kayaks and canoes available to rent, as well as cycle paddle boats. Hosts will be in the campground from Memorial Day weekend through Labor Day weekend.
The paved boat ramp is suitable for launching larger motorboats. A 20-slip boat dock is available for tie-ups. The campground concessionaire charges a day-use fee at this facility if you are not camping overnight.
A cold water outdoor shower is available by the swim beach.
