Eightmile Campground - also called Eight Mile Campground

Campground Description:  Eightmile (Eight Mile) Campground is owned and operated by the United States Forest Service.  Eightmile Campground is situated on the shores of Icicle Creek.  Eightmile is a moderately sized campground offering 41 tent camping and RV camping sites.  Every camping site is paved as are all of the roads within the campground.  While RVs will fit it would be best to leave your motor home land yacht at home and stick to 24 foot long trailers at a maximum.   The entire area is primitive but every camping site at Eightmile (Eight Mile) Campground is welcoming yet somewhat isolated from the other campsites.  There are no facilities other than a pit toilet restroom and running water.  Full restaurant dining and shopping is available in Leavenworth.  Open April to October.  Reservations are not possible at Eightmile (Eight Mile) Campground.

The Free Guide To Northwest Camping is a free guide to both privately owned and publicly owned (state, county and federal government) campgrounds.  The editors of the Free Guide To Northwest Camping do not specifically endorse any of the campgrounds listed in this site.  Not every available campground is covered in this free camping guide.  Many of the privately owned and operated campgrounds do not allow tent camping.  If in doubt, call the campground first.

The authors of the Free Guide To Northwest Camping do not accept payment from any agency or private campground owners.  In this way we insure that every description in this free guide is unbiased.  Covered are campgrounds owned and operated by state and federal agencies, private RV campgrounds, RV parks, family campgrounds, and camping sites for both tents and all types of RV campers.  While free campgrounds are listed and described, pay per night campgrounds far outnumber the free sites.

Please use the email link above to notify the editors of the Free Guide To Northwest Camping of any errors or omissions.  New campgrounds are added weekly.
