Central Washington

Camping

This is a primitive campground with few amenities. At Baker Creek Campground entertaining things to do are plentiful. If you like the outdoors, you won’t be let down. There’s swimming, hiking, fishing, and whitewater paddling, so running out of cool stuff to do won’t happen.

Beverly Campground

Beverly campground is located along the North Fork of the Teanaway River. There are 14 tent-picnic sites available first come-first serve. There is no potable water source and all trash must be packed out.

Big Pines Recreation Site

At 20 acres, Big Pines is BLM’s largest recreation site in the Yakima River Canyon. The northern edge of the recreation site is adjacent to undeveloped hiking trails on lands managed by the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife.

This is a popular gathering place for trail riders heading into the mountains on several popular trails. It has spacious tent and RV sites. Water is available from a hand pump. Opens once snow has cleared, sometimes not before late June or early July.

Cle Elum, Kachess, and Keechelus reservoirs are in the Wenatchee National Forest. Camping, swimming, boating, picnicking, and fishing are available at all three reservoirs especially in the streams below the dams. Available fish species are lake trout, kokanee, and rainbow trout.

A 375,000 acre outdoor playground is closer than you think. With 200 days of sunshine, only 20 inches of rain and 80 inches of snow, recreation opportunities are endless. Enjoy the serenity of an alpine lake sunset, wildflowers in spring, vibrant fall colors or hitting the snowy trails of winter.

Located at the head of Lake Cle Elum along the Cle Elum River, this campground offers 23 trailer and/or tent sites and a reservable group site with a capacity of 55+ people. Activities include fishing, boating on the lake, and hiking nearby trails including Howson Creek Trail No. 1349 for hiking, horse riding, and mountain biking.
