Camping supplies near Mt Vernon Amtrak?
« on: August 04, 2013, 04:15:47 pm »
I'm planning to hop on the Sierra Cascades route at Sedro-Woolley, WA.

I'll take Amtrak up to Mt Vernon, and ride over to the route.

But I'd like to pickup some camping gas and other supplies in Mt Vernon. Google
Maps is not encouraging.

Does anyone know where to find camping supplies in Mt Vernon, preferably near the
railroad station?

Hey Steck, when you say "camping gas" do you mean canister fuel? The blue Camping Gaz or the more generic type? If it's the latter, Fred Meyer is a Northwest grocery store/hypermarket chain that has a limited camping selection. It's geared more towards car camping, but they do sell backpacker stove canister fuel. The nearest one to the Mt. Vernon Amtrak station is in Burlington, about 4 miles north.

Did you need other gear?

And I don't recall any outdoor/camping stores in Mt. Vernon.

Yes, I meant a canister, for my MSR Superfly.

Actually, I see there's a Walm*rt in town. I'd suppose they have camping gas.
