Napeequa Crossing Campground is one of three free places to camp along White River, just 7 miles north of Lake Wenatchee in the Okanogan-Wenatchee National Forest. It is conveniently located right across the street from the Twin Lakes Creek Trail, which makes a great day hike during your stay.
The tiny campground has just five sites that are situated right off the road on the river bank. Tall Douglas firs stand as sentinels around the campsites, and the river is accessible from all of them. Though there is no potable water, the campground does offer basic amenities like grills, picnic tables, and vault toilets.
Further north are Grasshopper Meadows Campground and White River Falls Campground, and all three are managed by the Forest Service. Despite their small size and proximity to the river, trails, and White River Falls, they rarely fill up, and you might even be the only camper there.
