Campground Description

Campground Description

Contributor

Grasshopper Meadows Campground is one of three free places to camp along White River, about 10 miles north of Lake Wenatchee in the Okanogan-Wenatchee National Forest. Campers will be treated to views of the surrounding ridges and enjoy access to a secluded piece of the river with good picnicking spots.

This tiny campground has just five sites, all of which are situated under tall Douglas firs and alders just a short walk from White River. Though there is no potable water, Grasshopper Meadows does offer basic amenities like grills, picnic tables, and pit toilets. Note that the campground is primarily geared toward tent camping, as parking is limited and RVs might have trouble finding a good spot.

Three miles back down the road is Napeequa Crossing Campground, which has direct access to the Twin Lakes Creek Trail, and further north is White River Falls Campground, where the waterfall continues to roar year-round. All three are managed by the Forest Service and rarely fill up despite their small size.
