Overview

East Kachess Group Site is closed for the 2019 camping season.

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.

Recreation

This is a prime base camp for hiking, fishing, swimming, and mountain biking in summer and early fall and several trails are a short drive 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. The campground is equipped with picnic tables, campfire rings with grills and vault toilets.

Natural Features

Kachess Lake, adjacent to the campground, is a reservoir that 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 spotted owl and gray wolves also find havens in nearby ecosystems.

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 as it winds its way its way from Mexico to Canada through California, Oregon and Washington.
