TONS of free lakeshore spots when lake levels aren't too high. Coordinates are a ramp down to the lake off NF4818. From there, there's many sites to both the left and right with fire pits. Very popular in the summer, and many people bring their boats and ATVs. Great Verizon and T-Mobile. Some road noise from across the lake but doesn't bother me much. I've been here a couple times and this is probably my favorite boondocking spot in Washington!

Great Mountain Lake with spectacular views. We came after the dam was released so the water was low. We parked within the graveyard of trees about 100 ft from the water. Great Verizon reception. There were others here but we felt very secluded. The road getting in was a bit rough but we managed in our 159" RamPromaster (2WD). Highly recommend this spot! Please keep it clean.

Spend one night out here last weekend in our roofnest. A beautiful spot and there was PLENTY of room for us to have our own space.. saw maybe 3 other groups/cars the whole time. There are great spots along the lake to set up, but also plenty of room up in the woods for ground tents as well -- and our site a a few fire rings around. Only downside was that we heard a few gunshots around 2:30am -- they were very far away (someone drunk on a Saturday night just having fun I am assuming) but it did wake our dogs up.

Perfect spot. Hundreds of spots available. I came on a Wednesday and only 4 other rigs here so I parked on the other side of the lake away from them and went topless hahah. Beautiful lake. 3 bars of AT&T 5G and 3 bars of LTE+ on Verizon. Dogs off leash. There’s a sign at the entrance that says some locals and nomads cleaned up all the trash so PLEASE keep it clean so they don’t shut this down. PLEASE!!! See my pictures to see how beautiful.

Very nice location on the shore of the lake. Lots of spots on the shore and along the road leading to it.
Good t-mobile LTE signal.
Only problem is that people leave lots of trash around. Really upsetting.

Report Check-In

main road is typical flat logging road. not bad in any vehicle. choose not to take my e350 down the little boat ramp to the lake. camped on shoulder of main road instead. on a Sunday in July there was plenty of space. some other campers but lots of elbow room. please pack out your garbage including TP and bring a shovel for a cat hole. human waste was a big polluter here when just a little bit away from the camp sites.

Water level is high right now... there are only a couple spots accessible by vehicle when water is this high. I managed to scoop one on a Sunday night as the crowds were leaving. It is super beautiful, definitely more cramped when water levels are high. The trees block a lot of access to spots that look like they could’ve been fabulous if the lake was lower

Very lovely lakeshore bookdocking site. Here with one other rig on a Wednesday, but plenty of room for privacy. Met up with some friends on a Saturday and the place was packed. Some of the shore is loose gravel so be careful not to get stuck. Good for tents, truck camper, or vans only. No amenities. Two bars of LTE on ATT.

Report Check-In

Road is not available right now, closed off due to the weather & snow I assume..

Report Check-In

Flat bumpy dirt road for the last mile to the lake. Plenty of options to camp along the tree line. Primitive fire pits. Mixed gravel, mud lake shore.

BREATHTAKING! I got here right after sunset, it was kinda getting dark but manageable. Lots of pot holes, it’s a rough road to get to the lake but so worth it. I have a Sprinter van not 4x4. I made it down here easily but take it slow. I wouldn’t come down here if it was raining. You could easily get stuck in the mud if it does. Very clean and quiet area with excellent Verizon cell service. Tons of spaces.

Report Check-In

Amazing cell service (Verizon). Very crowded but you can park away from people. Very noisy, people are very loud, music and dirt bikes. A lot of spots on the road. To get down to the lake front there is a tiny road that’s very steep and loosely packed dirt. I have a Ford Econoline and didn’t feel comfortable going down, I wasn’t sure if I could make it back up. However I saw many small cars and two vans come up. Up to you. You can park of the side road or drive back and park in the woods. A little away from the lake.
