Big State Park with tons of Amenities

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!

Dispersed camping at Snopark on Forest Road 52 off Goat Creek Road

The name of this site should be corrected to Goat Creek. This is not a campground but rather a dispersed camping option near Mazama, WA on Forest Service Road. There is a large snopark (snopark permit with groomer sticker required) to park on the snopark but one can also pull out on the Forest Road. In summer lots of options. In Winter it depends on your vehicle when snow is present.

We had a Snopark permit and parked in the lot. Only another two campers and during the day snowmobile users park there for day use.

There is a USFS bathroom that was open, pretty clean and well stocked with TP. I think the MVTA must maintain it during the winter as a sign by USFS service said it was not maintained Oct-May.

No cell phone reception but lovely free camping option in the Methow close to Mazama.

Tradition

I camped here two years in a row.

First to Review
Off grid at its finest

Very out of the way in a Beautiful canyon. Stayed here in January so some of the roads to the sites were soft and muddy. The site we stayed at was on the water with a sandy beach. This site would be A-1 for summer fun.

A Great KOA in the Methow Valley

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.

Not taking care of anything. Playing favorite with other guest

I would never recommend them to anyone because they over charge plus that have one spot which is on a ditch that sinks all year round the place isnt maintained like it's supposed to be the docs could use a new docs campsites could use gravel for when you're parking a rig or fifth wheel in better identities better bathroom and shower

Typical NFS campground

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.

Great Small Campground

An absolutely fantastic little campground for all sizes, from tents to big RVs!! Jacob the manager was a great help the entire stay. It is popular with ATVrs, but they were very polite and drive appropriately.

Quiet site off Highway 20

One of our favorite PNW campgrounds. We like to camp in the right hand loop which is more shaded and suitable for our 24’ pop up truck camper setup. The camp hosts make sure there is tp and clean toilets. The water is tasty and is tested. There are garbage dumpsters available. The sites are spacious enough but some aren’t level but the tenting area is, though. The sites do backup to the woods so you have privacy.

The sites are nestled in between pines and other native vegetation. In the spring the wildflowers are scattered about. Do be aware of black bears and rattlesnakes as posted by the kiosk. Since it is set back from Highway 20, there is not as much noise as at Early Winters or Lone Fir. Instead, you can hear Early Winters Creek.

Sites are $12 or $6 with Senior Pass. We have come in at either end when the water is shut off and it is hit or miss if Iron Ranger is covered or not meaning no fees if it is. Still, we like to support our public lands so tuck in extra the next time.

Plan ahead

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.
