About Lost Lake Group Unit

Lost Lake Group Site is located in Lost Lake Campground which is situated on the northern edge of Lost Lake on the Tonasket Ranger District of the Okanogan-Wenatchee National Forest. Set beneath mixed-conifer forest and surrounded by mountains, this campground offers one group site, suitable for large family and group camping excursions as well as several non-reservable single and double sites.

Recreation

Lost Lake Campground offers outdoor enthusiasts the opportunity to hike, fish, and enjoy a long list of outdoor recreational activities. Anglers enjoy boat fishing (with an electric motor only) for rainbow and triploid eastern brook are available in abundance. A boat ramp is available in the campground. For an easy, interpretive hike for the whole family, the Big Tree Trail starts across the road from the Lost Lake guard house at the entrance to the campground. This 0.8 mile trail connects with a loop trail that highlights two 600-year old western larch trees. It is particularly beautiful when the wildflowers are out in June. Another great hike is the Strawberry Mt. Trail that starts just outside the Campground entrance and travels 1.5 miles up to Strawberry Mt.

3 Reviews of Lost Lake Group Unit
Off grid and no cell service

This place is amazing to disconnect from the world yet still have a clean environment. I have been coming here my whole life and still it owns my heart. Most of the toilets are vault with one near the beach that has running water. The sites are mostly level and clear of brush. There are single and double units available too. The fishing is great, but the floating dock on the beach needs some major upkeep! Some great hikes can be had all from the campground. We will most definitely return. There is also a Kiwanis group camp at this campground, so depending on who has it rented it can be fairly noisy & busy during the day.

Always the Best Place to Camp

I’ve gone to Lost Lake a few times this year and it’s always such a great place to camp. The road coming in is much less bumpy than it was earlier in the year. Only bummer this time was of course the burn ban, but we all still had a great time. There’s nothing better than getting out of the city for the weekend, and this spot is always my favorite destination.

Solitude

Beautiful blue water! A few open spots with fire rings around the base of the lake. Quite and very peaceful! The only thing you can hear is the sound of lost lake river running and echoing threw the surrounding hills. Great veiws of noble knob! Lots of fish jumping 24/7! Worth the climb!
