Middle Fork Campground

  • This campground is located along the Middle Fork of the scenic Snoqualmie River in Mt. Baker-Snoqualmie National Forest. Beneath a canopy of towering Douglas fir, cedar and Western hemlock, and located near several hiking trails within a short driving distance, this campground is a perfect site for both individual and small group camping excursions.

    In addition to being a prime location for hiking, fishing, horseback riding and picnicking in summer and early fall, Middle Fork offers excellent skiing and snowshoeing in the winter months. Approximately 1,500 miles of trails throughout the area can entice any hiker to get outdoors. From smooth paths meandering through deep quiet forests to challenging ascents up boulder-studded mountains, opportunities abound for every skill level. The popular Middle Fork Trail is a 3 mile trail offering visitors a glimpse into the area's diversity. The trail begins by crossing the Middle Fork of the Snoqualmie River via the Gateway Bridge, then turns upstream and meanders between the river and overhanging cliffs, offering sweeping views of nearby peaks. After climbing away from the river and passing under Stegosaurus Butte, a granite ridge towering over the valley at over 1,000 feet, the trail follows an old logging railroad grade used by pioneers and finally descends back to river level. The Middle Fork Snoqualmie Trail is also used by bicycles and horseback riders. Mountain bikes are allowed on the trail on odd- numbered days of the week. A Recreation Pass is required for each vehicle parked at the trailhead.
