Overview

Overview

Cayuse Horse Campground sits in the foothills of the Okanogan-Wenatchee National Forest in northern Washington.

A favorite among horse enthusiasts, the campground is nestled in a mixed-conifer forest. In close proximity to snow-capped peaks, high elevation lakes, scenic rivers and several wilderness areas, this campground offers visitors opportunities to experience both the serene and wild aspects of the area.

Natural Features:

Okanogan-Wenatchee National Forest offers stunning scenic views, with high, glaciated alpine peaks, valleys of old growth forest and rugged shrub-steppe country making up the diverse landscape. Elevations range from below 1,000 feet to over 9,000 feet.

Visitors to the area can expect many days of warm, sunny weather in the summer, and winters with clear skies and plenty of snow.

The surrounding undeveloped wilderness, clean streams and diverse forests support an abundance of wildlife, including deer, porcupine, native fish and migratory birds.

Recreation:

The Cayuse Horse Camp provides visitors access to a wide variety of trails. Rugged peaks, sparkling lakes and forested area provide the backdrop for many of these rides.

Equestrians may want to traverse at least a portion of the spectacular Pacific Crest Trail (PCT), one of America's premier National Scenic Trails. The PCT showcases some of North America's most fantastic scenery, winding its way its way from Mexico to Canada through California, Oregon and Washington. Portions of the nearby trail traverse Diamond Peak at timberline. Wilderness passes are required for this trail.

Facilities:

Cayuse offers 14 large equestrian sites. There is a single corral for each site, with a maximum of 3 horses per single site and 4 horses per double site.

The corrals are not near the campsites, but located in a common area with two water troughs on opposite sides of the corrals. Picnic tables, campfire rings with grills and ample room for parking vehicles and trailers are available at each site. Drinking water is also available, and there is access to vault toilets.

This horse camp is open after snow levels recede, and access to trails is available.

Nearby Attractions:

Visitors enjoy Mt. Rainer National Park, where interpretive programs and exhibits offer education about the diverse landscape and history of the area.
