A primitive campground with surprisingly appealing amenities, Salmon Meadows was opened by the Civilian Conservation Corps in 1937 and provides a memorable destination for hiking, camping, and horseback riding deep in the heart of the Okanogan backcountry.

14 campsites are located here and are open from May 15 - October 15.


Check out the picnic gazebo and registration booth, both of which were built by the CCC over eighty years ago.

Salmon Meadows Campground - U.S. Forest Service


This network of multi-use trails provides easy to moderate terrain for hiking, running, horseback riding, ATV, and motorcycle riding. The Angel Pass Trail is a moderate 1.3 mile hike with an 800’ elevation gain while the Muckamuck Trail provides 4.4 miles of “delightful backcountry trekking” with a 1125’ elevation gain and camping opportunities with a campground fee.

Driving Directions:

From the small town of Conconully, drive north on County Road #2361 to where it becomes USFS Road #38 then continue for another 9 miles to the entrance of the campground.


Conconully, that tiny town nestled in a mountain valley on the sunny side of Washington's North Cascades, bounded by two lakes, and embraced by state and national forests -- is waiting for you. It is a unique community in the heart of Okanogan County and the welcome mat is always out!
