Details: 10 sites, $14 a night. RVs to 30 feet Water and vault toilets. No reservations; campsites are first-come, first-serve. Campground info.

The Icicle River canyon just east of Leavenworth is one of the most beautiful areas of Washington state, and so naturally it’s a magnet for hikers and rock climbers all summer long. It’s on the confluence of Ida and Icicle Creeks, and I don’t think I’ve ever camped at such a pretty spot as this.  Just up the road is the Icicle Gorge Trail, a wonderful little jaunt for beginners and families.
