While most National Forest campgrounds (Washington) are still closed for camping, campers are likely to see several campgrounds opening up in the coming weeks.
As per a report, National Forest Service’s Robin DeMario announced the good news to campers eager to explore the outdoors.
There are six individual walk-up sites and a group site that can be reserved through recreation.gov. The water isn’t yet accessible; however, water systems will be operational by May. Outhouses are now operational, and trash service is accessible.
There’s also a big reservation site on Pine Flats Campground for groups of campers planning big activities for lots of people.
DeMario said that two additional campgrounds would be opening by the first week of May.
“We hope to have two other campgrounds open by May 6th, the Fox Creek and Lake Creek campgrounds, which are located further up the Entiat Valley Road beyond the Pine Flats campground.”
DeMario reminds forest users to prepare for early season conditions, such as slippery trails and snow in shaded areas.
