    Overview

    Verlot Campground is located just off the Mountain Loop Highway in the stunning Mt. Baker-Snoqualmie National Forest. Situated on the west side of the Cascades between the Canadian border and Mt. Rainier National Park, this area is one of the most spectacular in the the country, showcasing glacier-covered peaks, wide mountain meadows and old-growth forests, rich in history and outdoor opportunities. Verlot is a relatively quiet camp, and its close proximity to the South Fork Stillaguamish River offers an ideal setting for visitors wanting to enjoy the serenity of the flowing water or the easy access to fishing.

    Recreation

    The Mt. Baker-Snoqualmie National Forest has 1,500 miles of trails, ranging from smooth paths through deep, quiet forests to challenging ascents up boulder-studded mountains. Hiking opportunities abound for every skill level. The Mt. Dickerman Trail, located near the campground, switchbacks steeply for 3 miles through a dark forest to an alpine meadow, replanted in 1915 after a major forest fire. From this point, the trail rises above the timberline to an alpine meadow alive with wildflowers in July and August. The trail is in generally good condition, and spectacular views can be seen from all directions as the trail climbs to the 5723 foot summit.

    Facilities

    Verlot Campground offers standard sites, accommodating both tent and RV camping. Picnic tables, flush toilets and drinking water are also available, however there are no electrical hook-ups. Access to the Stillaguamish River and Benson Creek is available from the campground.

    Natural Features

    The Mt. Baker-Snoqualmie National Forest offers visitors the chance to discover, or rediscover nature on a personal level. Rugged peaks, scenic rivers, and interesting wildlife define the forest and surrounding designated wilderness areas. 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 from which the forest takes its name is perpetually snow-capped and mantled with an extensive network of creeping glaciers. Mt. Baker's summit, Grant Peak, is actually a 1,300-foot-deep mound of ice, which hides a massive volcanic crater. On the banks of the Stillaguamish River, visitors can explore a unique ecosystem typical of the area. Old-growth forests line the wide, gently-flowing river, known for its salmon run. Populations of chinook, coho, chum, pink, and sockeye spawn in the river and its tributaries.

    Nearby Attractions

    Visit or stay in one of the historic lookouts in the area. Lookouts are tangible symbols of Forest Service heritage, perched on high peaks with unobstructed views, where they have been used throughout the years to detect and control fires in remote wildlands. Take some time to visit nearby Mount Rainer National Park. Considered a wonderland, the park offers a fantastic glimpse into glaciers, subalpine ecology, and volcanic landscapes typical in the region. Discover the Verlot Public Service Center, near the South Fork Stillaguamish River. Built by the Civilian Conservation Corps from 1933 to 1942, Verlot`s handsome buildings reflect the architectural style and fine craftsmanship of that era and are listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
