Discover a slice of Bavaria when you camp near Leavenworth—a snow-capped mountain paradise.
With 700 miles of trails beneath the snow-capped Cascade Mountains, Leavenworth has a lot to love. In the winter, Washington's Bavarian village is the perfect destination for cold-weather fun. Think sleigh rides, skiing, and snowmobiling. In the summer, there is river tubing, trout fishing, and horseback riding to kindle your spirit. Dozens of RV parks and campgrounds are perched on the Columbia and Wenatchee Rivers. Go for a swim, or just sit by a crackling fire with Cascade views. In the cold months, feel snug in one of the heated cabins and lodges around Leavenworth. Ready to answer the call of the wild? Breathe in the fresh mountain air from a wilderness campground in Okanogan-Wenatchee National Forest. Enjoy your morning coffee with views of glacial peaks, evergreen forests, and alpine lakes. One popular pick is the Eightmile Campground. (Would you believe it's exactly 8 miles from Leavenworth?) Campsites with picnic tables and fire rings hug the banks of Icicle Creek. Spend the morning fishing for rainbow trout, or hike the nearby mountain trails. If you love the water, make a splash at Lake Wenatchee State Park. Tent and RV camping spots are perched on the shores of a glacier-fed alpine lake. Hiking, horseback riding, windsurfing, and kayaking are just a few adventures to be had here.
