Backman County Park in Darrington, WA is your best bet for getting your watercraft launched onto the blue waters of the Sauk River if you’re coming from the Mountain Loop Highway. There’s a decent amount of parking and a single honey bucket on site, but not much else. Just easy access to one of the most beautiful and scenic rivers in the state.
The Sauk winds nearly 45 miles through remote and untouched wilderness of the North Cascades. The water is such a vibrant color due to the fresh snow melt from its many surrounding peaks. Backman Park is certainly a portal into a pristine wilderness adventure. .
