Beaver Creek campground is a popular group camp situated along the Stillaguamish River, with a spectacular view of Big Four Mountain. Visitors traversing the scenic Mountain Loop Road through Mt. Baker-Snoqualmie National Forest will find the campground about 12 miles east of the Verlot Public Service Center, just past the small town of Silverton, Washington. Fairly flat, surrounded by stands of old-growth forest and located near the bubbling Beaver Creek, this site is ideal for small group or family camping excursions. The campground offers one large group campsite, making it a perfect setting for families or groups. The site can accommodate about 15 campers and is ideal for a mix of tents and RVs. The site is equipped with tables, tent pads and campfire rings with grills. Vault toilets are available, but there is no drinking water provided.
In addition to being a prime location for hiking, fishing, picnicking and horseback riding in summer and early fall, Beaver Creek offers excellent skiing and snowshoeing in the winter months. Hikers may want to explore the nearby Big Four Ice Caves Trail off of the Mountain Loop Highway. The trail ends with a view of the ice fields and the immense north face of the 6,153 foot Big Four Mountain. The caves are exposed during August and remain visible through October. The nearby Gold Basin Mill Pond interpretive trail is also accessible from the campground. This interpretive site includes a short, barrier-free trail that passes by mill relics and ends on a floating viewpoint looking across the old millpond. Interpretive signs discuss the history of the mill and the wildlife in the area. The trail is located directly across from the Gold Basin Campground.
