Panorama Point Campground, WA
part ofMt. Baker-Snoqualmie National Forest, US Forest Service
Status: Closed through Wed May 14 2014 Season Dates
OverviewPanorama Point campground is located on the western shore of Baker Lake in the stunning Mt. Baker-Snoqualmie National Forest.
Situated on the west side of the Cascades in Washington, 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.
Whether visitors choose to hike on trails leading into towering pine forests or paddle a canoe across the lake at sunset, this campground is an ideal setting for both individual and group camping excursions.
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.
In addition to being a prime location for hiking, boating, fishing, picnicking and horseback riding in summer and early fall, Panorama Point offers excellent skiing and snowshoeing in the winter months.
With several sites located at the lake's edge and others in close vicinity, Panorama Point Campground offers visitors the ideal opportunity to camp near shoreline or under a canopy of trees.
Visitors enjoy the North Cascades and Mt. Rainer National Parks, where interpretive programs and exhibits offer education about the diverse landscape and history of the area.
