The Okanogan-Wenatchee National Forest features high, glaciated alpine peaks towering along the Cascade Crest. Lush valleys of old growth forest define its western boundary, and at its eastern edge, rugged shrub-steppe country comprises a more arid region. Mount Stuart, a towering mass of granite located in the nearby Alpine Lakes Wilderness area, is the second highest non-volcanic peak in Washington, perched at an elevation of 9,415 feet. The surrounding undeveloped wilderness, clean streams and diverse forests support an abundance of wildlife, including deer, porcupine, native fish and migratory birds.
Nearby Red Top Mountain is a popular excursion for those wanting to reach a vista point after a short hike. Perched atop a basalt outcrop is Red Top Fire Lookout, where on a clear day visitors are treated to spectacular views of Mt. Stuart, Mt. Rainier and the Teanaway Valley. July through mid-September the historic lookout is often open to visitors.
The area around Mineral Springs is a prime location for hiking, horseback riding and mountain biking in summer and early fall, and offers opportunities for skiing, snowshoeing and snowmobiling in the winter months.
The campground is a great base camp for day-hikers and overnight backpackers, and several access trails are available from the area.
