If you can get a site on the beach here it's well worth the alarms you have to set on your phone to get them! The sites are smallish and a little weird shaped but you get direct access to the water. There is also a loop at the other end of the park that is more standard drive in sites. The water sites you park at the top and carry your things down to the site so be prepared for that.
Amazing dock system and access to the lake, great day use area where you can rent kayaks and paddleboards.
A small store with hot food, milkshakes and some floaties comes in really handy and the people running it are very nice.
Overall this is a great campground for families, it is quite large and has all the amenities you need to make great memories!
TIP: Watch for the critters they are ruthless so cover ALL your dry goods!
This KOA is a great campground, it's clean, it's centrally located to the town of Winthrop and there are close by amenities for groceries, etc. A very kid friendly place to stay as well. They even have some sites that are fenced for privacy and these sites have a hot tub and grill.
This is your typical Forest Service campground. It has pit toilets throughout (that were clean enough) the campground as well as water spigots. No hookups but the setting is great with big trees Tent campers get the better sites near the river. We didn't see a camp host (the host site was empty) but I believe one from another campground comes by to check on things.
Pearrygin Lake was packed! Understandable though, nice campground. However the lake access and campground were intermixed. Not my favorite thing when I used to camp with my kids. A lot of traffic in and out even though this park is in the middle of nowhere. The campgrounds were in two different areas and had several sites that were close to the lake. Ducks, kayaking and swimming. Nice picnic area too, but watch out for the sprinklers.
Winthrop/ N Cascades NP KOA
Nice KOA! The sites are HUGE for a KOA and very well maintained. Sorta a western vibe which goes along with Winthrop City. Nice little town but somewhat tourist trappy. Not horribly so and a cool boardwalk to walk along. If you take away all the traffic and replace it with horses, etc you would almost be in an old west town. The river that meanders along the back of the campground is the stopping point for tube rentals. The river is very rocky so not enjoyable to walk along but apparently good for fishing. There are two very cool wagons that are rentable to stay in, as well as cabins. The campground was very quiet (except for the playground straight across from my site) and not busy on the weekdays we visited. On the side of the playground was a nice camp kitchen with tables and large sinks. The laundry room and shower house are in the same building. The one strange thing is the dump sites location. You have to go to the far right side near the back of the park and then drive all the way back to the front. A lot to do and it would be easy to occupy your vacation time.
Steamboat Rock SP, WA
If your using your GPS from Electric City on RT 155 keep going about a half mile after the gps says your there. The entrance will be on the right with a sign.
The whole area was very interesting, orchards, rocks and water. Worth a visit!
We stayed for an overnight. Sage is a nice open campground with some shade. Green grass and a sprinkler schedule to keep it green. Make sure you check your sites time or you may end up with wet stuff.
Direct access to Banks Lake. The water level was low so there was plenty of shore space to sit and walk. Nice scenery, picturesque and unique. There was a hiking path up the rock but we did not try it out…this time.
We have visited here twice, once when it was hot during the summer and once this last spring. The spring time was amazing! Granted, it was rather chilly and not a whole lot of people there but it was so quiet and the water was still partially frozen over so the view was incredible from the top of the "boat". The stars were absolutely incredible to see at night when all the lights were out! Not a lot of trees around so you could see the whole ski!
We we did enjoy staying here but two big things that were not so wonderful was the lake was very busy with skiers and tubers so anyone enjoying lighter vessels like kayaks had to watch out or go late in the evening when the big boats are off the water. The campsite had nice Landscaping but where stacked pretty closely together at least on the inner campsites. The rather short trail to the bluff behind the campground was rather steep in areas but well worth the trip when you did get to the top.
This Campground was good for a single visit for us but will likely not return in exchange for a quieter and less visited park.
