Anyone care to recomend a campground on the Cooper river ???
There are some up by the Lake.
The OWHI campground has sites by the lake. I'm going to try to break away late next week for a couple nights up there somewhere.
The campground right on the lake is good, I liked it. I've hiked the Cooper River trail a couple times and there is no camping along the river itself.
Not sure if you can get to the upper levels around Cooper. There may still be snow on the road. You can check with the USFS office in Cle Elum at (509) 852-1100. There is plenty of camping at the intersection of the Cooper Lake road and the road to Salmon la Sac. The Cle Elum river campground is big and a few miles before the cutoff to Cooper Lake and has more amenities than the primitive sites at the intersection.
Cal this place half the time the Forest Service ask them what is open and what's not. They are in Cle Elum and out hiking about regularly.
its open. kayaked the cooper last week. you can get to the lake as well.
