About Skagit Valley
Skagit Valley is located approximately 140 km from Vancouver and can be accessed via the Trans-Canada Highway south of Hope. The road to the Skagit Valley area beyond the highway is unpaved and requires caution. The road is shared with logging trucks and other industrial equipment.
The Skagit Valley was carved by retreating glaciers and is characterized by excellent outdoor recreation opportunities in a natural, wilderness setting. Visitors can enjoy hiking along 50 km of trails, river fishing, picnicking, swimming and horseback riding. Skagit Valley Park includes two campgrounds and a horse campground. Silvertip Campground is located beside a river and the campground at Ross Lake is located on the lakeshore. Witworth Horse Camp includes pull-through campsites for vehicles with horse trailers and each campsite has its own horse corral.
