Overview

Set on the shores of the scenic American River, Pine Needle Group Campground in Okanogan-Wenatchee National Forest offers an ideal setting for groups and large gatherings.

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 more than 9,000 feet.

Precipitation varies greatly throughout the area, ranging from approximately 140 inches along the Cascade Crest to only 10 inches along the eastern edge. Visitors can expect warm, sunny weather in the summer and winters with clear skies and plenty of snow.

Nearby Goat Rocks Wilderness offers excellent hiking. Peaks within the area are remnants of an extinct volcano, taking the name "Goat Rocks" in honor of the numerous mountain goats traversing this isolated region. Gilbert Peak is the highest summit in this area, at an elevation of 8,184 feet.

Recreation:

Pine Needle Group Campground offers outdoor enthusiasts the opportunity to hike, fish, ski, raft and enjoy a multitude of other recreational activities throughout the year.

The American River, adjacent to the campground, offers a scenic backdrop for swimmers braving its cold, refreshing waters. Anglers may also want to cast a line into the deep pools lining the shore, as populations of rainbow and brown trout prevail in this waterway.

The nearby American Ridge Trail offers hikers, overnight backpackers and horseback riders fantastic opportunities. Extending from Bumping River to the notable Pacific Crest Trail, the American Ridge Trail offers over 26 miles of towering forests, stretches of meadows, alpine lakes and ridge line views.
