Cooper river campgrounds

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.
