Welcome to Waterfall Camp where you'll enjoy a breathtaking and unique view of the "sunset Waterfall" located on the South Fork Skykomish River in Index WA , in the western foothills of the Cascade Mountains, off of Highway 2. find more pictures on Instagram @waterfall_camp This land used to be the property of the local market owner. From there you have a pristine and unique view of the sunset falls, where The Dept of Fish and Game built a fish ladder. You might spot some wildlife including eagles, deers and salmon during the Fall. Don't forget your camera, binoculars and camping chairs to take in the awesome views. Local places to hike include Wallace Falls, Sunset Falls, Lake Serene, Bridal Veil Falls trail ( literally 5 minutes away from us), or maybe you like rock climbing, white water rafting, kayaking or fishing. All are available if you drive to Index; located just minutes away. Located at the very end of a private community area (you will need the code) , this place offers a very peaceful setting, including the rushing and relaxing sound of the waterfall and the occasional whistle of a train. Approximately 55 miles east of Seattle and 25 miles west of Steven's Pass. We welcome, tents and camper vans, small to medium groups of campers.Welcome to Waterfall Camp where you'll enjoy a breathtaking and unique view of the "sunset Waterfall" located on the South Fork Skykomish River in Index WA , in the western foothills of the Cascade Mountains, off of Highway 2. A medium-sized and private setup, with shared access to the river water and breathtaking mountain views, this is a wonderful getaway to kick back and relax after your day of adventures, or just to escape the city rush for a day or 2.  The campsite is easily accessible but an SUV or AWD vehicle is recommended under snow conditions, the camp has a couple of trees to navigate around to access the best spots.  Multiple firepits, 4 wood chairs, toilets, and 2 picnic tables are available.  There is no running water or electricity. Be sure to bring your tent, firewood, and plenty of water.  You might spot some wildlife including eagles, deers and salmon during the Fall.

Very nice spot, with a great view! Yes, there are a few properties nearby, but the skykomish river is top notch. If you want to get down to for river access, you can take a road nearby and have a fun adventure getting down there. Sleeping was nice. Trains are nearby but they don't toot their horns. Some bugs, so bring your spray. Bridal veil falls is nearby, which is a great hike for the morning. We'd come back here for sure.

Definitely coming back!
Waterfall camp was breathtaking! Our host was very responsive and extremely accommodating. It was just 2 of us but there is plenty of room for multiple families to utilize the spot. I hope to return someday in the summer!

The experience was amazing! We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Only critique is the missed opportunity for the trail down to the river. We would have been down there more if it was easier to get to. But the space and views were amazing! Would definitely book again in the future.

Amazing! Gorgeous views, privacy, but not too isolated from civilization. The sound of the rushing water was stunning and the campsite is super well set up:)
