The Nookachamp community is located just east of Mount Vernon and is a charming place to call home for families, individuals and couples. As a haven for commuters, this very small area is an excellent option whether you work in Skagit County or farther north in Bellingham and Whatcom County. With access to schools and various activities indoors and out, this picturesque community is an ideal place to explore the possibilities of Mount Vernon homes for sale.
Given its size, the area has more to keep you entertained than you probably would expect. You can find places to eat and drink right on the lake.

At Christmastime, the local volunteer fire department, businesses and community members gather for a Christmas parade and food drive. There are also other drives and fundraisers, like the Big Lake Fire Department Auxiliary Pancake Breakfast.
