Mt. Baker-Snoqualmie National Forest will delay the opening of the Gold Basin Campground for a safety review. “In light of the Oso/530 landslide we are taking a hard look at the historic Gold Basin slide path adjacent to the campground. Our first goal remains helping the communities affected by the Oso/530 slide,” said Peter Forbes, Darrington District Ranger. “Opening the campground will be delayed until the safety evaluation is complete,” he said.

Gold Basin Campground is located 14 miles east of Granite Falls, Washington along the Mt. Loop Highway. Call the Darrington Ranger Station at 360-436-1155 for assistance in finding other camping opportunities.
