Squire Creek Park all started with a dream and two communities coming together to make it happen!
In 1924 the Darrington Improvement Club, Arlington Commercial Club and the Mansford Grange all came together to purchase 20 acres of virgin timber. Their goal was to provide a campground located west of Darrington just a few miles before you come into town. They named this beautiful campground after the creek that ran through it, Squire Creek. Snohomish County now owns and maintains Squire Creek Campground today, and it just as beautiful today as it was in 1924.

Squire Creek Campground is near the confluence of Squire Creek and the North Fork Stillaguamish River and is only 3 miles west from Darrington. The campground has 29 campsites for RV and tent camping; no hook ups or dump site. Camp sites have tables and fire pits. There are both vaulted toilets and restroom facilities. Along the creek there are two picnic shelters which can be reserved where there is good viewing of spawning salmon and eagles in the fall and winter.  To the north of the picnic shelters you will find a short nature trail winding through deciduous forest to Squire Creek.
