The Enchantments Wilderness area is beautiful but rugged wilderness area within the Alpine Lakes region of the Okanogan-Wenatchee National Forest. This unique area is very popular among day-hikers and backpackers. Because of its popularity the permits to use this area for both day and overnight use are awarded via a lottery system.
The Wenatchee River Ranger District includes three horse camping sites, many RV and tent camping campgrounds and lots of day-use picnic and recreation areas, as well as hiking and riding trails. Because many of the campgrounds and trails are subject to seasonal closures, we recommend that you contact the Ranger Station in Leavenworth before you make firm plans. Even as late as mid-June some trails and camping areas can be closed. And because the wilderness areas are prime bird nesting habitat, there can be restrictions on those areas during breeding and nesting periods.
