Great stop-over on the way to Bend!

We stayed here one night on our way to Bend traveling from Seattle in the late afternoon. We stayed at the campsite #1 which is adjacent to the boat launch. Given that was winter season, part of the campground is closed yet there were several RVs and a couple of tents in the one open loop. The site we stayed was right by the river and across from the one outhouse that was open. Big dumpster also available to deposit garbage. This looks like a really nice spot for warmer weather hanging out. Nice big fire pit. Picnic tables in the sites near the River were moved to a central location due to winter time flood hazard.

Easy Getaway from Seattle

Quiet campground with decent privacy between sites. We stayed just one night at site 42, which was on a corner and offered a good amount of privacy and easy access to the clean bathrooms. It's a short walk to the river where we watched the kayakers and did a very easy hike. We could hear trains at night but that didn't bother us. It was a cold and rainy weekend but we still had an enjoyable time. We'll come back in the summer!

Great hidden gem on the outskirts of Seattle!

This is our second time going to Kanaskat Palmer Park and we decided to enjoy four nights in there yurts between the fall and winter transition season. I must say I was very impressed to see that the bathrooms and showers were still very clean ever since the pandemic and that it was quite a nice place to stay during the weekdays if you wanted a quietly stay in the woods with the sounds of the flowing river. We will definitely be back again next year!

Granite Lake

Lakeside camping here was wonderful. I got a great nights sleep in the hammock as you can see haha. Lots of room for a big group of campers, just make sure to pick up trash before you go because it was pretty littered.


Great spot to camp because it’s right next to several great hikes. The campground is right next to Denny Creek, which sports a spectacular waterfall! Very close to the Summit West ski resort, both are right off i90.

Lake Colchuck

Beautiful 4 mile hike up (8 round trip) to the lake. There was a weird smell coming from the river, so maybe don’t drink from it haha. Bring plenty of your own water, also BUG SPRAY. Lots of bugs at the lakeside. It’s definitely still worth it for that view of dragon tails pass.

Icicle Creek

Well-kept campground with plenty of wide open flat spaces for a big tent. Big fire pits with tons of room for everyone to keep warm. Great place to go if you’re in a big group.

Large, busy NFS campground

Summer weekends are packed and if you don't have a reservation and want to stay for the weekend you'll need to arrive Wednesday morning. They have a few sites that are walk in and they definitely aren't as choice, waterfront sites, but it was close enough. We came in with a hybrid travel trailer and large SUV and had lots of room. Some sites are more suited to tents. The usual vault toilets and dispersed water spigots throughout the park. The water is crank and it took about 300 turns to fill a 5 gallon can. Garbage on site and the host sells firewood.

Amazing campsite great for family and friends!

We love Lake Wenatchee and it has become an annual trip with a couple other families that we camp with.  The sites are roomy and well taken care of.  The bathrooms are clean and accessible.  There are some great trails that you can walk to and more if you're up for a drive.

The lake is beautiful, though it gets really windy in the late afternoon, so you'll want to spend you time there earlier in the day.

The town of Plain is close by and has a really useful grocery store with great ice cream and a good selection of emergency supplies.  There is also a laundromat behind the grocery store, just in case!

Beautiful wooden campground

This is a beautiful campground which has both primitive and hook up spots. The only downside, is the road is narrow and the spots are difficult to maneuver any RV over 28 feet. Saw a small pick up truck pulling a small trailer having a very difficult time turning corners and navigating campsite spots.
