Welcome to The Landing at Index - located on the South Fork Skykomish River, in the western foothills of the Cascade Mountains, off of Highway 2. With 16 acres of beautiful, private woods and breathtaking views of Mt. Index, this is a wonderful getaway to kick back and relax after your day of adventures, or just to escape the city rush. The campsite is at the bottom of a rugged drive so an SUV or AWD vehicle are recommended, especially during the wetter seasons of Spring and Fall. There is a fire pit, outhouse and large picnic table. Be sure to bring your tent, firewood and water. You might spot some wildlife including deer, eagles, raccoons and salmon running during the Fall. Don't forget your camera and binoculars to take in the awesome views. Local places to hike include Wallace Falls, Sunset Falls, Lake Serene, Bridal Veil Falls, or maybe you like rock climbing, white water rafting, kayaking or fishing. All are available and located just minutes away. A rather peaceful setting, including the rushing sound of the river and the occasional whistle of a train. You will feel refreshed and rejuvenated after you stay at The Landing. Approximately 55 miles east of Seattle and 25 miles west of Steven's Pass.

We had a fantastic weekend of fall camping and really enjoyed our stay at the Landing. We had site 4 and the views (of Mt Index I think) were fabulous. Also had a front row seat to a salmon run in the Skykomish just steps away. Would love to come back and check it out in warmer weather!

Beautiful peaceful setting, mountain vistas, spectacular bird watching, spawning salmon, lovely beach and good facilities. Very special place. I was a guest in the spring and also late September, both times wonderful. Thank you Dave!

Pictures do such little justice. This place is amazing. Our site and the campground as a whole are so well thought out and cared for. Our only regret is not staying longer.

Beautiful space, very thoughtful layout, and sites are very private. Fire ring, table and outhouse were exceptional. We really enjoyed our stay.
