Natural Features

The 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.

The Tieton River, adjacent to South Fork Group Campground, is a tributary of the Naches River.
