Each summer members and friends of Skagit Audubon gather in this US Forest Service campground off Highway 20. It is 1.2 miles up a side road on the north side of the highway near Mile Post 175 at an elevation of 2,900 feet. There are usually plenty of sharp eyes in our group and the birding is great right on the campground loops as well as further down in the Methow Valley. There is no schedule or plan beyond a Saturday night dinner potluck. Informal groups form to look for birds, or folks go out on their own with binoculars or cameras. Klipchuck is a magnet for warblers, vireos, flycatchers, woodpeckers, hummingbirds and wildflowers. A trail to Discovery Butte leads up the hill right out of the campground for the ambitious hiker. Deer are usually fawning around the campground so dogs are not recommended and must be kept on leashes at all times.
