This forested campground is located near Early Winters Creek, has majestic trees with a stream and good hiking opportunites nearby. Units combinable to accommodate groups.
40 sites with large loops about 1 mile off hwy 20. A little more quiet with less road noise than nearby lone fir campground. Campsites are set back in the trees to give more privacy. Fire rings, tables, and toilet available.
This is great camping option in the beautiful Methow Valley. Close to the small town of Winthrop and near two cold and refreshing snow fed bodies of water (Early Winters Creek and the Methow River) perfect for cooling off in the hot summer. This valley is breathtaking all times of year!
This is a USFS run campground and is available for $12/night on a first come, first serve basis. This campground is highly popular in the summer months and can experience high volume especially on weekends and holidays. There are vault toilets available that are well maintained but that condition can begin to deteriorate as the summer goes on due to the number of visitors.
Each site offers a nice large gravel area for pitching tents, picnic tables and decent shade. There is potable water available in the summer months and trash receptacles can also be found here.
This area has been prone to large wildfires in recent years so be sure to check for current conditions regarding fire bans, as they are often in effect in the summer. Remember, only you can prevent forest fires!
Needed a campground with easy access as we were just passing through for the night. Lots of privacy, clean facilities, and plenty of sites for either tents or small RV’s. Easy access to trails, river, and the towns of Mazama and Winthrop which are known for great hiking, climbing, mountain biking, etc. Very quiet, family oriented campground with clean, well-kept facilities. Definitely worth the $12 per night.
I have camped here twice with my husband and two boys. This last time was just as enjoyable as the first. It is a first-come first-served campground so if it is a holiday weekend, you want to get there on Friday to get a site. There is usually a camp host and the vault toilets are not too shabby. A quick hike from the camp will take you to a river. A longer hike will take you to Hwy 20. Unfortunately, this hike had a lot of obstacles from fallen trees that we could not make it the whole way. But another hike is Driveway Butte and it is a little more challenging then the other two but well worth it for the views.
Overall, the sites are clean and large. They are spread out and give you a lot of privacy. We always stay at the loop to the right when you pull into the site. There are some sites that are on the river but those go quick and we never get there quick enough to snag one. Mazama is the closest town and how the basics. We did have a deer visit us every night but never actually came up to the site.
