Overview

Kaner Flat Group Campground is situated the foothills of the eastern Cascade Mountain Range in the Okanogan National Forest.

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.

The area supports wildlife such as deer, squirrels, native fish, black bear and migratory birds.

Recreation:

Kaner Flat Group Campground offers outdoor enthusiasts the opportunity to hike, fish, ski, raft and enjoy a multitude of outdoor recreational activities throughout the year.

Nearby American Ridge Trail offers hikers, overnight backpackers and horseback riders fantastic opportunities to absorb some of the area's stunning beauty. Extending from Bumping River to the notable Pacific Crest trail, the American Ridge Trail offers over 26 miles of towering forests, stretches of meadows, alpine lakes and ridge line views.

Trails for off-road, motorized recreation abound in this area, although some only allow specific types of vehicles. Visitors should be sure to check area maps.

Backpacking in the nearby Goat Rocks Wilderness is also a popular pastime. The peaks within the area are remnants of an extinct volcano, taking the name "Goat Rocks," in honor of the numerous mountain goats traversing this isolated region. Gilbert Peak is the highest summit in this area, at an elevation of 8,184 feet.

Facilities:

Kaner Flat Group Campground has one large site with multiple tenting locations, which can accommodate up to 60 guests. The site is equipped with picnic tables, campfire rings and vault toilets.

Access to drinking water can be found across the street at Kaner Flat campground.

Entrance to the campground is through a locked gate. The combination to the lock will be included in the confirmation letter.

Nearby Attractions:

Boulder Cave National Recreation Trail is one of the most popular places in the Naches District. Visitors can walk the accessible trail along the river or explore Boulder Cave. Interpretive signs along the trail explain the geology, plants, animals and fire history of the area.

Visitors will also enjoy traversing the Chinook Scenic Byway, considered one of Washington's premier driving excursions. Spectacular views of Mount Rainier, old-growth forests, alpine peaks, jagged ridges and river canyons dominate this 92-mile journey.
