Autumn Colors are Out in the Okanogan Highlands of Northern Central Washington - See the pictures.  

Pitch your tent in the trees, or field. There are 18 acres, plus adjacent farms and primitive roads to roam. With the limited number of campsites there is lots of privacy. Nearby fishing and swimming lakes provide recreation. Experience the atmosphere of a ghost town once inhabited by would be kings, or just hanging out in the outback wild west.

2 Kipling Place is the site of the ghost mining town of Kipling dating back to 1900. Thetowns name was inspired by Rudyard’s “The Man Who Would Be King.” In its heyday Kipling’s men who would be kings had their own Post Office, School House, Mercantile, Grange hall, Church,resident farms and Cemetery. Today the property graces a cabin in the woods, a spacious barn, various campsites and RV hookup. Its Neighbors include cattle and horse ranchers. The site is nestled within the Kipling valley, and sports a seasonal stream. The surrounding area was once speckled with gold mines, and is still a chosen place for gold prospectors, and dredgers. There are nearby fishing lakes, and wild west towns such as Chesaw, noted for its infamous tavern, 4th of July rodeo and named after a Chinese gold miner of long ago; Oroville, a wild western frontier town of the historical past is presently noted for it's art community, be sure to check out the 49th parallel arts window displays; Havilla is known for its picturesque church; and the town of Molson has its illustrious history, museums and Grange hall. The events at the Molson Grange are worth noting and include pancake breakfasts, roller skating, quilt shows, bazaars,ice fishing derby, festivals and romping good times. In the center of it all is the ghost town of Kipling. Bring your metal detector, or rent one from the host. Be sure to bring hiking boots. And, enjoy the wild life. "A school house was built in 1902 near the Kipling Mercantile." The property where the school house was located is the 2 acres owned by Tonasket school district just to the west.
