Overnight Parking – Unoccupied Vehicles

We have a limited number of sites available at our Heather Meadows and White Salmon Parking lots for overnight parking during the winter season. ALL vehicles staying overnight in those lots MUST have reservations, including unattended cars. Bear in mind that this is not a traditional RV campground – Mt. Baker gets the most annual average snowfall of any ski area in North America and with these unique conditions mean that all Overnight Parking users are required to be familiar with, and adhere to, all of the Overnight Parking policies and guidelines.

UNOCCUPIED OVERNIGHT PARKING sites are reserved for unoccupied car/truck/van that will be left overnight while occupant(s) camp in backcountry ONLY. No overnight camping inside vehicle is allowed in this site.


Mt. Baker has 2 Base Areas (White Salmon & Heather Meadows) with overnight parking in both Base Areas. HOWEVER ... Base Area operations vary by day of the week and with conditions. Before choosing which Base Area to make your reservation at, read through the info at the links below to determine if your chosen Base Area is scheduled to be open with services on your chosen day(s).

Reservations are made through Roverpass. Although the sites are numbered in Roverpass for reserving, there are no assigned individual site numbers in the parking lots. Instead, there are site zones and you will be parked in the corresponding zone according to your reserved site number. Site locations are dependent on conditions. On occasion, snow removal or other ski area operations may require a site occupant to move to another site, either temporarily or for the duration of the reservation. See maps below.

WHEN MAKING A RESERVATION: once you’ve entered your dates, be sure to select “RV STORAGE SITES” to bring up the Unoccupied Overnight Parking sites.
