About Boardman Group Camp
Boardman Group Campground is located about 8 miles east of the Verlot Public Service Center along scenic Mountain Loop Scenic Byway through Mt. Baker-Snoqualmie National Forest. The campground is located on the banks of the tranquil Stillaguamish River, in close proximity to several wilderness areas. Natural Features: The Mt. Baker-Snoqualmie National Forest offers visitors the chance to explore the regions rugged peaks, scenic rivers, and interesting wildlife within the forest and surrounding designated wilderness areas. Visitors will find unique ecosystems along the banks of the Stillaguamish River. Old-growth forests of cedar, fir and hemlock line the wide, gently-flowing river and tower over trails winding through moss-covered rocks. On a clear day visitors will see Mt. Baker, the most prominent feature of the Mt. Baker Wilderness Area. Rising to an elevation of 10,781 feet, the active volcano is perpetually snow-capped and mantled with an extensive network of creeping glaciers. Mt. Bakers summit, Grant Peak, is a 1,300-foot-deep mound of ice, which hides a massive volcanic crater. Undeveloped wilderness, clean streams and diverse forests provide important habitat for wildlife, including birds, amphibians, reptiles and more rare species such as lynx, moose, wolves, and wolverine. Grizzly bear sightings have been confirmed in the Cascade region, though black bears are more common. Recreation: 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, which sustains populations chinook, coho, chum, pink and sockeye salmon, steelhead trout, sea-run cutthroat and bull trout. Facilities: The campground offers just one site, making it a perfect setting for groups of up to 35 people. RVs are welcome. A small amount of traffic noise from the adjacent highway can be heard, but the river helps mask it. The site is equipped with tables and campfire rings with grills. Vault toilets are available, but there is no drinking water. Visitors must bring their own supply.
