Silver Fir Campground

Area Status: Closed

This campground is situated in the forest along the North Fork Nooksack River. Most of the sites are removed from the highway and a short walk to the river. Many Silver fir, western red cedar, and western hemlock trees provide shade, but a very sunny gravel bar is between the campground and the river.
