Douglas Fir Campground is situated directly on the turbulent glacial blue waters of the North Fork Nooksack River. The Sound of the river is pervasive through out the camp and you are surrounded by old growth Douglas fir, silver fir, and western hemlock. The river here is known for great whitewater kayaking and rafting. There are 29 sites on two loops, all of them have tent pads, and many of them are very spacious. 18 of the sites at Douglas Fir are reservable and the rest are first come first serve. Some of the sites are wheelchair accessible. Drinking water and vault toilets are available. Douglas Fir Campground was originally constructed by the Civilian Conservation Corps and the very interesting small historic picnic shelter has recently been reconstructed. A short trail, Horseshoe Bend, is located within easy walking distance from the campground. It is beautifully constructed, following the river for the first mile with great views of swiftly flowing waters and moss-draped forest.
