Overview

Overview

East Kachess Group Campground is tucked away on the eastern shore of Kachess Lake in Okanogan-Wenatchee National Forest.

Hemmed in by dense old-growth conifer forest and surrounded by high mountains, East Kachess Group Campground is secluded, making it an ideal setting for groups and families seeking recreation and relaxation.

Natural Features:

Kachess Lake, adjacent to the campground, is actually a reservoir and stores and provides water for irrigation for south-central Washington.

The area is quite scenic, supporting wildlife such as deer, porcupine, native fish and migratory birds. These species, along with many others, depend on surrounding undeveloped wilderness, clean streams, and diverse forests to live.

Endangered and threatened species, including the Northern Bald Eagle, the Northern Spotted Owl and gray wolves, also find havens in nearby ecosystems.

Recreation:

This is a prime location for hiking, fishing, swimming, horseback riding and mountain biking in summer and early fall.

The campground is a great base camp for day-hikers and overnight backpackers, and several trails are easily accessible from the area.

Anglers will enjoy the scenic backdrop of the area while fishing for rainbow trout, cutthroat trout and kokanee salmon from boat or shoreline.

Facilities:

East Kachess Group Campground has one large group site, able to accommodate up to 100 people and 25 vehicles.

Sites are equipped with picnic tables, campfire rings with grills and vault toilets.

Nearby Attractions:

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.
