Upper Beaver Creek Campground will be our base camp for the weekend. It is a rustic Forest Service site with no water. Good for tents, vans, RTT, and small trailers. Large RVs and trailers are not recommended. Discover Pass required. From Twisp, Take Highway 20 towards Loup Loup pass. Take a left onto Upper Beaver Creek Rd. From this point, the camground will be 5.6 miles on your right. When the road turns to dirt, the campground is roughly 2 miles on your right. Please look for the Evergreen Tent and Trailer.

 A burn ban will likely be in effect for Okanogan County wood fire campfires are prohibited. If you have a propane fire pit, you are welcome to use that.

  1. Bring plenty of water for the weekend. We will be based at a dry camp, so you’ll need to bring all you need for hydration, brushing your teeth, and cleaning up.

  2. Prepare for any weather - Gloves, warm clothes, sunscreen, or bug spray are all in play. It’s fall in the mountains, so you’ll want to be prepared for warm and cool temperatures.

  3. Bring your own mug or cup for warm drinks or Cold Beverages

  4. Bring your own plates/ bowl and utensils (we will have some disposable options, but we are trying to limit our footprint and waste)

  5. Bring snacks of various sorts (we will have some snacks available but bring some extra food just in case).

  6. Headlamps, lights, and camp chairs for hanging by the campfire.


We will provide dinner on Friday and Saturday night, plus morning coffee and some trail snacks. Please bring food for Breakfast and Lunch( ideally something easy to pack). Beer and other beverages will also be provided. *** The campground does not have running water, so please bring plenty of water for the weekend... yes, we mentioned that twice just in case.
