The Skagit General Store was established in 1922 as an employee commissary to serve the needs of the workers and their families on the Skagit River Hydroelectric Project. The original building is listed in the National Register of Historic Places and opened to the public in the 1940s. Today, employees and visitors alike can purchase milk, soda, snacks and unique hand crafted gifts, plus camping and picnic supplies.

Skagit General Store is famous for its homemade fudge made on location. Several varieties are available with seasonal specialties. Prepared with pride using the finest natural ingredients, Skagit Fudge makes the perfect gift or indulgence.
