CAMP: Lone Fir Campground, Okanogan National Forest

by Lauren Braden

in Camping and Outdoors

Lone Fir Campground is off Highway 20 in the Methow Valley, just west of Mazama and about 27 miles west of Winthrop.

Although this campground is not far off the highway, it’s beautiful and is in a great location for nearby hiking trails into North Cascades National Park and the Pasayten Wilderness. Early Winters Creek runs right through the campground.

The family-friendly Lone Fir Trail (2 miles round-trip) leaves from a trailhead in the campground.

This campground is located at just over 3,600 feet in elevation, so it’s covered in snow during winter months and melts out a little late in the season.

This otherwise nice enough campground is so close to Rt 20 that it has highway noise all through the night. One stay was enough.

Nice campground with a lovely creek and great mountain views. The sites are a fine river gravel, so there is no mud:) Highway noise was not an issue on my visit. There is some road noise during the day, but the highway was quiet all night.

Nice campground and there isn’t enough traffic to be an issue with noise. I went last Fall and going back this Fall. Great views and clean grounds.
