“Really nice boondocking spot that is close to tons of hiking trails and lakes.”
Deer Creek is a large gravel parking lot right off Mountain Loop Hwy about 26 miles from Granite Falls, WA. While there is no cell reception of any sort (not until you go back in Granite Falls), there is a lot more sun exposure at this location than the other potential boondocking sites we came across. This is important for us since our rig runs solely off solar power. We were the only vehicle parked there during the whole time we were there, but there was a decent amount of drive-by traffic going up Deer Creek Rd. to Kelcema Lake and along Mountain Loop Hwy - which is why it gets only 3 stars for noise. Traffic was a lot busier during the summer weekends than the weekdays
The gravel lot is fairly large and comfortably fit our 25' long 5th wheel and truck with enough space for at least one other rig. There are no amenities at this location except for a picnic table, pit toilet and trash can at the entrance of Deer Creek Rd. One of the things we really enjoyed about this site is that it is very close to countless great hikes in this part of Mt. Baker-Snoqualmie National Forest. Deer Creek doesn't need a parking pass of any sort, unlike the trailhead parking lots along Mountain Loop Hwy. The Verlot Public Service Center is about 15 miles from this site and the NW Forest Pass can be purchased there. There is also running water (from the bathroom and water fountain) at the service center. There is a 14-day stay limit in this national forest.

We never really thought about how the dense woods of Washington might be an issue for our solar powered rig until we were driving into the north Cascades on Mountain Loop Hwy to spend some time in Mt....
