Beautiful Spot

The surrounding area is so tranquil. You can hear the river in the background and the water is very refreshing but not too cold. Campsites are spaced >20 yards apart and level. Most sites area large enough for a 25’ RV. Lots of families that live within a 100 miles of the campsite vacation…

This Is My Type of Camping

So to say I’m a rustic camper is pretty accurate, although Sawmill does have potable water and around 23+ sites at a reasonable price of a little less than $20 a night, it screams “living off the land” to me.

We were pleased to discover that you can also camp offsite for free and have day passes…

Natural Features

Because of its wide geographic range, the Okanogan-Wenatchee is a stunning and unique National Forest. High, glaciated alpine peaks tower along the Cascade Crest. Lush valleys of old growth forest define its western boundary. And, at its eastern edge, rugged shrub-steppe country comprises a more arid region.

Elevations range from below 1,000 ft. to over 9,000 ft.

The Naches River, adjacent to Sawmill Flat Campground, is a tributary of the Yakima River in central Washington. In its upper reaches the river flows through rugged terrain and areas of pristine wilderness. Before joining the Yakima River it makes its way through valleys and is a significant irrigation source for areas northwest of Yakima.

Used by Native Americans and settlers throughout history, the river has served as an natural corridor between the east and west sides of the Cascades through the Naches Pass.

Nearby Attractions

Boulder Cave National Recreation Trail is one of the most popular places in the District. Visitors enjoy the accessible trail along the river or hiking to Boulder Cave. Interpretive signs along the trail explain the geology, plants, animals and fire history of the area.

In the fall thousands of people come to experience white water rafting on both the Tieton and American Rivers. Hikers may want to traverse at least a portion of the spectacular Pacific Crest Trail (PCT), one of the world's premier National Scenic Trails. This trail showcases some of North America's most fantastic scenery, winding its way its way from Mexico to Canada through California, Oregon and Washington.
