- Total Sites:
Baker Lake is a popular destination for boating, water skiing, canoeing, fishing and swimming. Anglers cast for kokanee, rainbow and cutthroat trout, salmon, native char and wild steelhead. The lake is within walking distance of the campground. Boat ramps are available at Horseshoe Cove, Swift Creek and Shannon Creek Campgrounds.
Baker Lake Trail is an easy family hike that begins in a majestic stand of Douglas fir. In 1843, a small eruption of Mt. Baker caused a forest fire, and visitors can still see the burned snags of virgin cedar trees that once dominated the area. The trail contours above the eastern shoreline of Baker Lake.
The Shadow of the Sentinels Trail begins just south of the campground. This accessible interpretive trail winds through a 500-year old ancient forest. Displays along the path explain the dynamics of the forest. The trail is constructed of asphalt and boardwalks with grades no greater than 8%.
