Recreation

Viewpoint near Holden Village

The Okanogan-Wenatchee National Forest offers four million acres of forest for your enjoyment, relaxation, and exploration. You can experience the solitude of hiking in the wilderness on hundreds of miles of trails, enjoy camping near others in developed campgrounds, or the solitude of camping in the back country or wilderness. The forest is also a prime location for plenty of great fishing, hunting, horseback riding, mountain biking, climbing, off road vehicles, and winter activities such as cross-country and downhill skiing and snowmobiling. Hundreds of miles of forest roads offer access and sightseeing opportunities. There are also Forest Service cabins available for recreational renting.
