This campground is a popular gathering place for individuals and families to enjoy both the mountains and the serenity of the lake at an elevation of 2,300 feet. Recreational opportunities abound for those wanting to take advantage of the trails and waterfront areas nearby.

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

Recreation:

In addition to being a prime location for hiking, fishing, swimming, horseback riding and mountain biking in summer and early fall, the area offers excellent snowshoeing and snowmobiling in the winter months.

Anglers also enjoy the abundance of rainbow and cutthroat trout and kokanee salmon.

The nearby Speelyi Beach features a wide sandy beach surrounded by conifer forest on Cle Elum Lake. Visitors enjoy swimming and kayaking.
