Earth Biscuits is a private camp ground for the “Inner Earth Biscuit “in all of us. Earth Biscuits is a sanctuary and a place to enjoy nature Located in Skykomish Washington, a small town 15 minutes from the Stevens Pass Ski Resort and the Pacific Crest Trail. 

We have 53 acres of a southern facing hill side that runs along the Henry M. Jackson, Wild Sky Wilderness, Mt. Baker National Forest. Tent camping can be accommodated almost anywhere on the property. There is about 5 acres that can accommodate a pickup with a camper or van but we’re not ready for a long trailer, motorhome or fifth wheel yet. Next year perhaps. The road going into the property is flat and level; however, we reclaimed an old logging road and it would take a jeep or 4-wheel drive truck type vehicle to get past the switchback as it heads up to the cliffs; a great spot for viewing the town/valley below. 

Bring binoculars. Be advised that it takes an able- bodied person as the trail going to the cliffs is rough. I hope someday to change that. I have not put in electric hook ups, water, sewage disposal, therefore your rig needs to be self-contained. There are a few campsites with a picnic table, fire ring and rain barrel for dousing your fire before retiring. If panning for minerals is your thing there is a couple of seasonal creeks. The property is walking distance to 4 local eateries, a laundry mat, a tavern, coffee shop, outfitter, fishing guides, convenience store/gas station. Skykomish is a train community and sports a train park which offers free miniature train rides May thru October. Fun for the kids of all ages. 

Keep in mind that as a train community there will be trains that rumble through the valley at night. If that bothers you bring ear plugs. There are numerous hiking trails in the area as well as several rivers in the area. The Foss, Buckler, Skykomish and several pristine alpine lakes. Biscuits come to the area for a wide variety of outdoor recreational opportunities including skiing, snow shoeing, rafting, mushroom hunting, rock climbing, quad tours, gold panning, bird watching, fishing, mountain rescue instruction or just unplugging from the world below and simply chilling. 

 Pets are welcome however the property is located within the town limits of Skykomish and there is a leash law and you don’t want Bowser to chase wildlife into the mountains or across the highway and be lost forever. It happens. 

 This area is rich with history from “The Olden Days”. The longest train tunnel in the western hemisphere was constructed through/under these mountains in the early 1900s after the nation’s worst train disaster, an avalanche, took 96 souls. Wellington (site of the disaster) is a short drive, is worth seeing and is wheel chair accessible. Two books written about this, both excellent reads. The White Cascade and Vis Major. During the time of tunnel construction between the logging and rail/tunnel workers there were some 20,000 living and prospering in the Skykomish Valley. They were a hearty rough and tumble crowd. 

 On weekends there is a museum and art gallery in town. Also, there is abundant wildlife in the area including Bear, Deer, Cougar, Bobcat, etc. In the event you’re fool hearty, NOT diligent, (lazy) and you leave food items out, that will serve as a chow call for the bears. FULL DISCLOSURE: There hasn’t been a bear attack in a very long time up here, and don’t think you’re the bear whisperer because you’re not.  Don’t leave out the cheese burgers and brownies. IT WOULD BE A PROVACTION ON YOUR PART! Enuf said. 

 Hunting/ shooting is strictly forbidden. All state fire restrictions are adhered to. No Rock climbing the cliffs unless you’re an instructor level climber and can show credentials I have planned this as a FAMILY CAMP GROUND therefore, any illegal drug use is prohibited. Your rig must be in good condition. No old 1900s models that clutter city streets down below. I hope you understand my intent here. Be advised that Length of stay is limited.
