Description
Okanogan National Forest is situated in northern Washington near urban areas like Mazama, Conconully, Twisp, Okanogan, and Winthrop. The designated forest land was established on July 1, 1911, and encompasses a total area of about one and a half million acres of land in Okanogan County, Washington. There are several ways that you can access the forest's resources or facilities. Some of the common routes that can be used include US 97 and WA 20. 

When you get to the forest, you will find several interesting and attractive features to keep you engaged. Some of these features include the Big Tree Botanical Area that features two 600-year-old western larch trees, Goat Wall, which is a huge granite outcropping above the western end of Methow Valley, the 100-foot Cedar Creek Falls, a section of the Pacific Crest Trail, the North Cascades Scenic Highway, Lake Chelan-Sawtooth wilderness area, and Pasayten wilderness area. 

These geographic features are not all that the national forest has to offer. There are other man-made amenities in the park including over 1,000 miles of trails, 38 campgrounds, scenic overlooks, scenic drives, picnic sites, and 55 lakes. These facilities make it possible to enjoy many fun activities including camping, fishing, boating, hiking, horseback riding, mountain biking, hunting, ORV riding, rock climbing, cross-country and downhill skiing, snowmobiling, and heli-skiing.

If you have a dog, you can bring them to the Okanogan National Forest although you may have to reserve your excitement only for certain areas of the park where you are allowed to visit with your dog. These areas can be discovered by making inquiries at the forest office. Some other rules you will need to abide by when visiting the forest include ensuring that your dog is always attended to. And ensuring that your dog's poop is immediately cleaned up and properly disposed of.
