Wiley Creek Group Camp

  • Wiley Creek, a popular campground for youth groups and organizations, is situated in an old-growth Douglas fir forest with lovely shaded trails. It is the first group site located on the north side of Mountain Loop Road, about 5 miles east of the Verlot Public Service Center in the Mt. Baker-Snoqualmie National Forest. Whether visitors choose to hike on trails leading into towering forests or enjoy a moment of solitude on the banks of the nearby Stillaguamish River, this campround offers opportunities to experience both the serene and wild aspects of the Cascade region.

    In addition to being a prime location for hiking, fishing, picnicking, and horseback riding in summer and early fall, visitors can take advantage of skiing and snowshoeing in the winter months. Anglers enjoy fishing from the gently-flowing Stillaguamish River. The Stillaguamish sustains a large salmon and trout population including chinook, coho, chum, pink and sockeye salmon, steelhead trout, sea-run cutthroat and bull trout. Gold Basin Mill Pond Interpretive Trail invites visitors to learn more about the natural and cultural history of the area. The short, accessible trail passes by mill relics and ends on a floating viewpoint, looking across the millpond. The trailhead is located directly across from Gold Basin Campground.
