Stretching north to south from the Canadian border to the Goat Rocks Wilderness, the Okanogan-Wenatchee is a stunning and diverse National Forest. High, glaciated alpine peaks tower along the Cascade Crest and lush valleys of old growth forest define its western boundary. A rugged shrub-steppe country comprises a more arid region at its eastern edge. Elevations range from below 1,000 feet to more than 9,000 feet.
Visitors to the area can expect many days of clear, sunny weather in the summer, and winters with clear skies and plenty of snow.
A historic highlight of the area is Jumpoff Lookout, the last remaining lookout in the Naches Ranger District.
Visitors will also enjoy traveling the Cascade Lakes Scenic Byway which climbs into the clouds on a 66-mile drive through the Cascade Mountain range, weaving through snow-capped peaks and alpine lakes.
Hiking is popular for visitors to the campground. Frost Mountain Lookout Trail, Keenan Meadows Trail and the Grey Rock Trail are all favorites in the area.

First time visiting this side of Washington, and the weather definitely disappoint. It was pretty dang hot here in the summer, more of a desert type of feel. We were super worried about rattlesnakes because we heard this part of Washignton has tons during the summer, but luckily we didn't see any. It rained the last day we were here, which was a nice change of weather. The hiking was great, so much beautiful greenery and trees! The campground was "okay." It wasn't really that well kept, a little dirty and no toilet paper in the gross porta-potty style toilet. The toilet area smelt SO bad! It was like it hadn't been clean in a really long time. The campground is fairly small, probably 15 sites? The sites are pretty close together, luckily there was only about 5 other families there when we were there. I wouldn't come back to this campground, but would probably come back to the area to do more hiking. Maybe not in the summer, though, more like the fall.
