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!
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.

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.
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
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.
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!
