Camping in Washington's Icicle River Valley

Seattle Post Intelligencer - USA
All told, there are about 200 campsites in the Icicle Creek Valley -- and on a holiday weekend like the one upcoming, every one of them likely will be taken.

Weekends are the busiest, of course. If you want to make sure to get a site this weekend, you'll probably have to arrive by Friday morning. Except for a handful of group sites that can be reserved, all the campsites in the valley are available on a first-come, first-served basis.

None of the campgrounds have power hookups, but the larger ones -- Eightmile, Upper Johnny Creek and Blackpine Horse Camp -- can accommodate trailers and RVs up to 50 feet. Bridge Creek, Lower Johnny Creek, Ida Creek, Chatter Creek and Rock Island campgrounds are smaller, more tent-oriented places, although most can handle smaller trailers. Rock Island and Chatter Creek are older campgrounds, built in the 1930s by the Civilian Conservation Corps.

The big, 84-site Tumwater Campground along U.S. Route 2 west of Leavenworth and the nearby 73-site Nason Creek Campground near Lake Wenatchee are both snow-free and open.
