Fees:  none

Palmer Mountain Recreation Area is a great place for hiking, backpacking, horseback riding, hunting, mounting biking, and fishing at Washburn Lake. Dispersed camping is also allowed. The autumn is especially picturesque when the many stands of aspen create a brilliant background. For those who want to "get away from it all," there are plenty of hiking options on a number of roads and trails that branch off the main Palmer Mountain Road. You are sure to find a favorite spot to enjoy the quiet, scenic views of the Okanogan hillsides, aspen groves and grasslands, and the peaceful waters of Washburn Lake.
