Johnny Creek Campground, Chelan County, Washington. So there you are: a week's vacation coming up. You want to go camping, but your wife wants to go to Leavenworth to buy you matching lederhosen and some nutcrackers. What do you do? (hint: suicide is not an option). I have it! Go camping at Johnny Creek! It's about 12 miles up Icicle Creek Road from Leavenworth, in the shadow of Mt Cashmere, beautiful Icicle Creek and babbling, tumbling little Johnny Creek, and great, terraced sites. And at the end of the day. lederhosen can be used to keep your food suspended away from the bears (don't hang it too high, or they can't tear into it), and nutcrackers make excellent firewood.

“Icicle Creek is my #2 forest in these United States...”

Every day we'd visit the river, just behind our campsite and down a not-too-treacherous cliff. And every day an osprey would come fishing that river before us.

The absolute lack of cell service was refreshing. We spent our days analyzing the myriad of trees—a combination of the Cascade's western lush and the more typical desert inhabitants—there were more types of trees and undergrowth here than in any forest I can recall studying.

Note that between upper and lower Johnny Creek (as the two neighboring campgrounds are divided), lower is the one with the river spots and better in my opinion.

Leavenworth (and cell service) is 15 minutes away, with all of the amenities like Safeway, restaurants and gas.

I would stay here for the rest of my life if they'd let me.
