Great overlanding site along the Washington Backcountry Discovery Route Section 4 between Ardenvoir and Lake Chelan, close to the Baldy Mountain summit area. The approach from Adenvoir was fairly rocky/steep in some areas so 4X4 is a must, the approach from Chelan was a little easier going and you could probably tackle it with a high clearance AWD.

On the east side of the road, there is a big dusty clearing with pretty great views that would be very campable, but the real gem campsite is to the west of the road set back a bit so it's not super visible. It's pretty clear this is a well-loved site as there is a giant stone fire ring (fires were not allowed when we visited) and weirdly enough a rustic camp toilet (with ridiculous views from the throne) built out of old lumber, real estate signs and tarp. The site itself is very level and pretty clean albeit a little dusty. We had a handful of AVD riders pass by, but had the mountain to ourselves past early evening until we departed mid-morning.
