Wenatchee National Forest Campgrounds

category : Camping
Wenatchee National Forest Campgrounds There are over 150 campgrounds and picnic areas on the seven Ranger Districts of the Okanogan and Wenatchee National Forests. Camp spots are generally available on a first-come, first-served basis. Several of the larger campgrounds also offer group reservation opportunities. During the summer months, weekends are usually very busy. To avoid crowds, try timing your visit for mid-week.

Some campgrounds have sites designed for tent camping, for camper truck use, and for use by those pulling a trailer. Other campgrounds have areas specially designed for campers who bring their horses for trail riding. Still other areas have been developed with the trail bike enthusiast's camping needs in mind. Both single family and multi-family camping sites may be found.

Some free-use sites have campfire rings or fireplaces, picnic tables, and primitive restroom facilities.

Sites which are more developed charge a use fee of between $5 and $17 per night per vehicle. Most fee campgrounds have drinking water and garbage service in addition to the basic amenities. See the camping sections by district (links above) or contact the Ranger District for more details on each campground. Restroom facilities in some of the more developed campgrounds may even have flush toilets. Campground use rules and instructions on how to pay camping fees are posted on bulletin boards in each campground.

There are also developed campgrounds which have sections available for use by large groups, such as family reunions. These sites may be reserved ahead of time and use fees are based on the number of people in the group and length of stay. Fees may range between $30 to $120 per night. Many are resevable through
