Great park by the river. Wonderfully laid out sites, very well built and maintained. No cell phone service and no Wi-Fi. So, plan on being off the grid unless you drive 8 miles to Concrete. Sites on the north side have good satellite angles but the ones on the south are next to the river and are blocked by trees. Plenty of room for big rigs and slide-outs. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a very clean & well maintained park. They water the grass so it was lush and green. The sites were roomy and long with the utilities in good condition and well located. There are no sewer hookups. Our site was level and paved. The bathrooms and showers were clean with everything in good working order. You have to self check in, be sure to check the board to see what sites are available and for how long. Verizon had a good signal but there were no TV channels available off our antenna. This park is located along a clear scenic mountain river that is a very pleasant place to relax and watch the water go by. They also have several well groomed hiking trails and a nice playground for the kids. There are fire rings and new picnic tables. The price I listed is for a premium river site. Sites off the river are less. They also have 2 brand new cabins for rent, tent sites and a group site with shelters. We enjoyed and extended our stay here and would come back. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Very clean nice park. Spacious grassy sites. We usually stay in private campgrounds because our experience with county and state parks hasn't been good. This one is worth staying at. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We were looking for a park near Cascade NP and found this on your website. The reviews were all excellent, and the location was good, so we gave it a try. What a beautiful campground. The sites were spread out, there was lots of manicured grass, and plenty of room for our tow vehicle. The camp host was very friendly and helpful. We extended our stay another day and would have stayed longer. It is a beautiful park and a great deal. We would definitely stay there again if we were in the area. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Beautiful setting, spacious sites, plenty of drive-throughs. Has a fast-flowing green river, with mountains surrounding. Showers are $1 for 4 minutes. The Rockport Pub is a plus, not a minus: quiet, great individual pizzas piled with toppings, friendly owner, free WiFi that extended to our RV site: we highly recommend it. Would definitely stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Fantastic setting overlooking the turquoise Skagit river. The topography is akin to alpine meadows. My wife and I stayed over on a Saturday night and were not in the least bothered by any kind of noise emanating from the Rockport Pub which is situated feet away from the campground. Great trails. Clean campground. Very friendly and accommodating staff. We will definitely return on our next visit to the northern Cascades. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The tavern noise was a bit much. Nice rustic camping. Along the River some sites are on the river. The manager goes out of his way to ensure the park is always clean and well managed. Rockport's little secret, don't tell anyone. We camped here in a Motorhome.
I would have given this park a 10 but the tavern noise bugs me. It doesn't get much better than this for semi rustic camping. Along the Skagit River some sites are on the river. We come here to get away for a day or so and have always enjoyed the quiet crisp location this park provides. The manager goes out of his way to ensure the park is always clean and well managed. Rockport's little secret, don't tell anyone. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Flood damage to park has been repaired, and is now outstanding county park! Camp hosts were extremely friendly and helpful. Campground was extremely clean and well maintained. Only negative is reservation system, a $6.00 charge is added to campsite for them accepting reservation. Would have rated an 8 if it was not for reservation charge. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This campground was serverely damaged by the rainfall of October 20, 2003. We camped there for the Eagle Festival the 2nd week of February, 2004. All the sites that were next to the river have been washed out. I was told by the park manager that
the water was about ten feet high in the middle of the campground. It was up to the door knob on the middle rest room. All the rest rooms were closed when
we were there. It will be quite some time before they can repair the damage. There are camp sites available, no sewer hookup. We camped here in a Motorhome.

Nice park alongside the Skagit river. Great base camp for eagle watching in winter. A couple of "outfitters" use the non-rv side of the park as a loading point for a bus ride further upriver, and as the end of the float trip. Some pull-thru's, mostly back-ins. All sites have electric (30 amp) ($15), 21 also have water ($18), others share a central water source to fill holding tank. Reservations can be made up to 10 months in advance, but not if less than 48 hours. Then, if you arrive after office hours (or if nobody is there) you need to check the "reservation" board to see which sites are not reserved for when you are planning on staying and pick from what is available. Dump station is on the way out, but not convenient for returning to your campsite. Road up to office is fine, but after that they get narrow. Would have to get partially on the grass to pass another vehicle. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Returned again as part of the annual NATCOA Fall Colors rally. Sadly, the outhouse was no longer there (Its a portable unit), so you must be self contained, especially in the late part of the open season. Also, large sections of some of the larger sites had pounded from the recent rains and could do with a fresh coat of gravel to make them usable during inclement weather. There are several sites that border above the river with a wonderful view, but no way down to the river below from the sites. We camped here in a Truck Camper.
Sauk Park is a primitive campground that's part of the Skagit County Parks system. It's technically a subsidiary park of Howard Miller State Park, as both are maintained by Rusty Reagan. This primitive camping at its best, campfires, smores, thick tree canopy of large firs, the roar of the Sauk river adjacent to the park. Toilet facilities consist of a standard plastic porta-toilet, similar to the kind you see at fairs, but in far cleaner shape, there is only one. This park is not recommended for long trailers, or 5th wheels, or giant motorhomes. Smaller Trailers, Truck Campers and Class C Motorhomes would be able to navigate the park without problem. Sauk Park is open seasonally -- April 15 through October 31. This is subject to earlier openings and later closings as weather conditions allow. Please call Rusty Reagan at 853-8808 for any and all updates. The nearest dump station is down the road at Howard Miller State Park. POLICIES: Camp in designated sites only, Self-Pay camp fee $5.00/night, Maximum of 14 days, Quiet time 10:00 PM - 8:00 AM, Dogs must be on leash, Alcohol regulations strictly enforced. We camped here in a Truck Camper.
We stayed here because it was close to the National Park. I guess the best way to describe this park is to say it is rustic. It appears not to have been maintained over the years. There are two camping areas. In the forested area, the sites were very muddy and dark. The sunny sites had grass and when the sun was out they got some light. Besides the camping area there are lots of "cabins" which have been here for a while. The folks that run the campground could not have been nicer but we would not stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Rate is weekly. There is only one 50A site - fortunately we got it. You can walk to the winery next door and to the diner between the campground and the highway. A wide variety of sites are available - shady or sunny. On Wed and Thurs the couple that manages the campground is not there and it is difficult to find someone if you want to check in or have questions. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Sites are shady, with fairly good privacy. Some long-term residents. Bathrooms are sort of funky -- no soap is provided near sinks. Management is very helpful. Sites are rocky and a little muddy. Sites away from Highway 20 are quieter than those near the road. Excellent location -- near the wilderness areas of the Cascades. Great ice cream nearby at Cascadian Farms. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
