Overview

Overview

Silver Falls Group Campground sits in forested, mountain terrain on the banks of the Entiat River in the Okanogan-Wenatchee National Forest.

The cascading water of Silver Falls is a draw for many visitors to this particular area, which is especially refreshing in the summer heat.

Natural Features:

Okanogan 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 many days of warm, sunny weather in the summer, and winters with clear skies and plenty of snow.

Wildlife in the area include mountain goats, coyotes, pine marten and a variety of migratory birds and native fish.

Recreation:

Silver Falls Group Campground offers outdoor enthusiasts the opportunity to hike, fish, bike and enjoy a long list of outdoor recreational activities throughout the year.

Anglers enjoy casting a line into the Entiat River above Entiat Falls, about 2.5 miles up-river from the campground. Carving through a wide, U-shaped valley, the river is dominated by relatively shallow riffles interspersed with pools, plunge pools and glides where the trout fishing is quite good. Populations of rainbow, cutthroat and eastern brook trout are found in this tributary.

Silver Falls Trail offers a 1.8 mile hike next to one of the most beautiful waterfalls in the region. The trail winds along Silver Creek to the base of the falls, through towering canopies of cedar and pine. The handcrafted stone staircase and bridges along this trail offer stopping points and scenic overlooks.

Facilities:

Silver Falls Group Campground has one large group site and equipped with picnic tables, campfire rings, drinking water and accessible vault toilets.

This campground also has a picnic shelter with a fireplace.

Nearby Attractions:

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

The Pacific Crest Trail (PCT), one of the world's premier National Scenic Trails, showcases some of North America's most fantastic scenery, winding its way its way from Mexico to Canada through California, Oregon and Washington, and is accessible near the campground.
