Whitewater River Run

Washington Nooksack River, North Fork

Douglas Fir Campground To Mt. Baker Highway

Class II+ TO III Difficulty


73°, Sunny

The Douglas Fir Campground to Mt. Baker Highway river run in Washington offers class II-III rapids and stunning scenic views. This section of the river has several obstacles to watch out for, including numerous log jams and boulder gardens that can make navigation tricky. The best time to float this section of water is in the spring when the snowmelt brings the CFS up to around 1000-2000. During the summer, the flow drops to around 500-1000 CFS, making the rapids less challenging. Experienced kayakers or rafters will find this section of the river exciting, while beginners should consider taking a guided tour.

Weather today, Sunny, with a high near 73. East wind around 5 mph becoming calm.
