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.
