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 many days of warm, sunny weather in the summer, and winters with clear skies and plenty of snow. The Tieton River, adjacent to Clear Lake Group Campground, is a tributary of the Naches River. Its headwaters originate in Goat Rocks Wilderness, collecting water from snow melt and glaciers in high rugged peaks. These peaks are remnants of an extinct volcano, taking the name "Goat Rocks," in honor of the mountain goats traversing this isolated region.

Nearby Attractions

Visitors enjoy Mt. Rainer National Park, where interpretive programs and exhibits offer education about the diverse landscape and history of the area. The spectacular 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. A boat ramp is available within 10 miles of the campground.
