Description

Wish Poosh Campground is located along Cle Elum Lake in the Cle Elum Ranger District in the Okanagen-Wenatchee National Forest. The campground was closed due to hazardous trees down in the camping area, and is not accepting reservations for the 2019 season. Wish Poosh is located in a mixed conifer forest, and the campground offers 34 campsites suitable for RV's or tents. A developed boat ramp accommodates boaters until lake levels fall below the ramp, usually in mid-July. Volunteers will assist the Forest Service and the Greenway Trust in improving the campground's access. Your efforts will aid in the eventual re-opening of the campground, which will allow for a more sustainable use of the area. 

Thank you!
