Natural Features

Because of its wide geographic range, the Okanogan-Wenatchee is a stunning and unique National Forest. High, glaciated alpine peaks tower 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.

Elevations range from below 1,000 ft. to over 9,000 ft.

The Naches River, adjacent to Sawmill Flat Campground, is a tributary of the Yakima River in central Washington. In its upper reaches the river flows through rugged terrain and areas of pristine wilderness. Before joining the Yakima River it makes its way through valleys and is a significant irrigation source for areas northwest of Yakima.

Used by Native Americans and settlers throughout history, the river has served as an natural corridor between the east and west sides of the Cascades through the Naches Pass.
