Campground Description

Campground Description

Team

Across the Skagit River from the far larger Newhalem Creek Campground (North Cascades National Park's second largest campground), Goodell Creek Campground is far quieter and smaller. With only 19 campsites, Godell boasts two very large, isolated, and reservable group sites (Upper and Lower).

Under a canopy of massive old-growth Douglas firs, western redcedars, and black cottonwoods, the campsites here are relatively large and spaced well enough from one-another to provide ample privacy. Unlike Newhalem however, Goodell offers little amenities beyond potable water and boat access. In fact, Goodell Creek Campground is perhaps best known as a rafting and kayaking put-in location for those floating the Skagit River, which runs along the entire campground.

Note: Goodell Creek Campground is open year round; however, potable water and services are only provided during the summer months from Memorial Day weekend to Labor Day weekend. There is no fee during the off season. Upper and Lower Goodell Group Sites are only open during the summer months and can be reserved via Recreation.gov or by calling 1.877.444.6777.
