Saddle Mountain campground is considered primitive, with only 10 non-reservable campsites available. This minimalist setup has its advantages--especially when you are privy to the silence of seclusion, nested at the base of a commanding mountain that rises above your nesting spot like a watchtower. The presence of the forest around Saddle mountain is potent. You can set your tent up in a circle of sword ferns, red alder, spruce and fir. You can enjoy your own nook of sweet, dark green and wake up to the surround sound audio of mountain echoing birdsong. Fire pits at each campsite and bathrooms with flush toilets are available. Primitive is relative and at Saddle Mountain it’s entirely worth the return to simplicity.

Small and out of the way - makes for a great overnight stop on your way to the coast, or just a secluded weekend trip to hike Saddle Mountain and then relax with a fire.
