OverviewThe Nason Creek Campground is located approximately 19 miles north of Leavenworth, Washington, and about one mile south of the Lake Wenatchee State Park. Set in old growth forest and in the Cascade foothills, Nason Creek is a popular destination.
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 to the area can expect many days of 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.
In addition to being a prime location for hiking, fishing, swimming, horseback riding and mountain biking in summer and early fall, the Nason Creek area offers excellent skiing, snowshoeing and snowmobiling in the winter months. The campground is also a great base camp for day-hikers and overnight backpackers. Several access trails from the area give hikers the chance to create their own excursions, whether it be a day hike or an overnight trip. Anglers enjoy fishing for rainbow trout, cutthroat trout and kokanee salmon from boat or shoreline on nearby Lake Wenatchee.
The campground has 70 single sites and 3 double sites. Sites are all equipped with picnic tables, fire rings, and grills. Restrooms include flush toilets. Water is available in common areas.
Visitors enjoy the North Cascades and Lake Wenatchee State Park. Guests can also explore the area's colorful railroad and mining history at the Steven's Pass Historic District, or hit the slopes at Steven's Pass Ski Area.
