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.
The campground is beautiful. Because of the fire that destroyed the campground, there is next to no privacy on each campsite.
Pros: -Stars were incredible- we saw the milky-way and a few shooting starts -clean flushable bathrooms -views, access to hikes -cool lake to swim in -cellphone service (although we opted to put our phones in airplane mode to unplug) -family friendly
Cons: -noise: during quiet hours there was zero enforcement of quiet time. We had a camp next to us partying until 1am and another group up at 6am putting up a canopy and being incredibly loud -no privacy at campsites -there is a fire ban, so if you are hoping for s’mores make sure to bring a propane stove (not a con for us, but may be for others) -bees: there were so many bees. If you are allergic I recommend staying away. We had a screened in canopy and still managed to get several inside -not a ton of shade, mostly because of precious fires
Camped here last weekend. Loved it! Lots of boat parking with breakwater. Pit toilet was very clean. Unusually windy for August. Be sure to pack in your own water. Fun view from our site of some rock cliff jumping. We arrived Thursday night and there was plenty of space. By Sunday sites were all full.
We stopped for a night on our way from Glacier National Park to North Cascades National Park. We had wanted to stop earlier, but did not feel safe in areas preceding this location by an hour or so. We caught sight of a number of RVs and a tent here and decided to give it a go.
This is nothing fancy. A gravel parking lot by a little lake. But it’s free and there’s a toilet and shorty after this point begins a scenic byway en route to North Cascades NP, so we didn’t want to miss that in the dark.
This is not technically listed on the map as a camping spot, but we did not experience any monitoring and there are no signs forbidding it.
Visited 7/26-7/31 2020 Loop 1 site 22 Pros- clean facilities, great day use area, some campsites (loop 3) are on the water. The lake is cool and clear. Nice staff. Kayak and paddle board rentals (not this summer due to covid). Close to Winthrop and Chelan.
Cons- extensive fire damage in 2014 has downed many trees and most campsites have zero or little shade. Sites are very close together, little privacy and weekends at lake are busy. My main issue was the out of date campsite photos. Our site showed 6 trees but we had zero (cut down I’m guessing due to fire). We knew it would be hot but we also thought there would be shade.
Great day park, not so great for camping. We stayed in spot 5 in loop 1, or the woods campground. There was a capped pipe that appeared to be waste water dump but was not. When we asked the park attendants why it wasn’t labeled or locked they had no answers. We ended up with an ant infestation in our camper and we camp very clean. It’s very barren and hot. The good was the camp was quiet and the sandy swim beach was nice, but only during the week. It was packed on the weekend.
