Overview

Windy Point Campground is situated in Okanogan-Wenatchee National Forest, offering visitors some of the most stunning scenery in the Northern Cascade Range in Washington and easy access to an abundance of recreational activities.

Natural Features:

Stretching north to south from the Canadian border to the Goat Rocks Wilderness, the Okanogan-Wenatchee is a stunning and diverse National Forest. High, glaciated alpine peaks tower along the Cascade Crest and lush valleys of old growth forest define its western boundary. A rugged shrub-steppe country comprises a more arid region at its eastern edge. Elevations range from below 1,000 feet to more than 9,000 feet.

Visitors to the area can expect many days of clear, sunny weather in the summer, and winters with clear skies and plenty of snow.

Recreation:

In addition to being a prime location for hiking fishing, hunting, horseback riding and mountain biking in summer and early fall, Windy Point offers excellent skiing, snowshoeing and snowmobiling during the winter months.

Hikers and backpackers are especially fortunate to have access to a variety of spectacular trails near the campground and in the surrounding areas. Designated Wilderness provides thousands of pristine acres of incredible landscapes to enjoy in solitude or with a small group.

Whitewater paddling on the Tieton River, near Windy Point Campground, is also a popular activity.

Facilities:

Windy Point Campground offers sites that accommodate both tent and RV camping.

Drinking water, picnic tables, and vault toilets are also available in the campground.

Nearby Attractions:

A historic highlight of the area is Jumpoff Lookout, the last remaining lookout in the Naches Ranger District.

Visitors will also enjoy traveling the Cascade Lakes Scenic Byway which climbs into the clouds on a 66-mile drive through the Cascade Mountain range, weaving through snow-capped peaks and alpine lakes.

Hiking is popular for visitors to the campground. Frost Mountain Lookout Trail, Keenan Meadows Trail and the Grey Rock Trail are all favorites in the area.
