We booked a spot at Steelhead park and were OK with it. When we arrived it was very clean. What we didn't like is that no longer than five minutes after setting up our site a guy came by on a golf cart and said we need to put the dog on a leash at all times and we have to be quiet after 10:00. Well that just blew it for our group. We just got out of the city to get away from rules and regulations and enjoy the outdoors, fat chance that was going to happen here. we asked for our money back for one night of the two nights we booked, we paid for one of the nights as we arrived so just to say after 5 to 15 minutes of being there they would not give our money back. Another thing we were unhappy about is that the sites are so close to each other that if you spit the wrong way you would probably hit someone in a site next to you. Well we left without our money and went down the road to another campground. The bottom line is if you want to sit in your RV, hear every word your neighbors are saying, keep your dog locked up and sit in the hot sun with very little tree coverage, Steelhead park will be great for you or church outings. We camped at Howard Miller Steelhead County Park in a Motorhome.

Beautiful campground on the river. Sites are level and paved with grass, fire pit and picnic tables. Lots of fisherman out to snag a salmon or two, and the fall leaves were gorgeous. Very peaceful and a good place to camp if you are planning a North Cascades trip. We camped at Howard Miller Steelhead County Park in a Truck Camper.

Nice day use area and if you are tenting, a very spacious and treed tent area.

I really like this park. A beautiful park like setting right on the Skagit River. Asphalt roads and asphalt level sites, 30 and 50 amp service, tons of water pressure, and clean bathrooms and showers. The bathrooms and showers are older but absolutely spotless. Most of the sites are pull thru. The few back in sites are my favorites since they back right up to the river. The only downsides here are a lack of privacy between sites, no sewer hookups, and no wifi. If it had sewer and wifi, I would give it a 10. (The park Ranger says the wifi is being installed). Howard Miller beats the two State parks in the area hands down. We camped at Howard Miller Steelhead County Park in a Truck Camper.
We have 45" motorhome and we fit nicely without toad. The site was gravel and mostly level. The surroundings are beautiful with a river there and walking trails. There are no sewer connections at site but easy to access dump station if needed. This is great place to stay to see North Cascades national park. Would definitely stay here again when in the area.

The park is very well laid out, accommodating for the largest rigs. We stayed at one of the premium sites which backed into the Skagit River. There is no direct river access, as there is a border or trees and shrubs in between. These premium sites are only 30 amps. No sites have sewer but there is a dump station which even registered guests must pay $5 to use. There is ample grass space between sites for your party to spread out and enjoy. The roads are on the narrow side - we had to drive over grass to park our 5th wheel - but not a problem to be concerned about for getting around the park itself. The dump station is near the entrance but poorly laid out because there is no way to make a U-turn back to your site if there are any vehicles in the day-use parking area. The dump station was probably an afterthought. The lack of sewer and poor dump station layout was the reason for only a 9 out of 10 otherwise very nice park. Highly recommended.

As another reviewer mentioned, if this place had Wi-Fi we'd give it a 10. We have a 45 foot motorhome and there were several sites that would accommodate us. The sites are either paved or gravel. Not really a lot of privacy but there is plenty of room between sites. Some of them have quite a slope but are okay for shorter units. Even on busy weekends, it is pretty quiet. The park has a beautiful pavilion that I assume can be rented. It is right on the Skagit River where you can fish or put in a boat. The ranger we met is a young, energetic and friendly man. Great location for visiting the North Cascades. We hiked, biked, and toured. We would definitely return. We camped at Howard Miller Steelhead County Park in a Motorhome.
We opted for a riverside site and they were large back-in sites with a level paved driveway and excellent services. We didn't see the other sites. The place was very clean and well maintained. Reservations are mandatory for the riverside sites. The place is a real credit to the community. If they installed WiFi it would be a 10.

Lovely campground. Well kept. Great for families. Level well spaced sites some on the river and all have firepits. Two small cabins and two Adirondack units. We camped at Howard Miller Steelhead County Park in a Motorhome.

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.

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 at Howard Miller Steelhead County Park 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.

Nice clean park with fairly large/level sites. We are 40'. The only problem I saw was no one enforced the dog leash rule in the park. Close to Cascade National Park. We camped at Howard Miller Steelhead County Park 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.

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 at Howard Miller Steelhead County Park in a Fifth Wheel.
