Incredibly scenic and quaint. It feels like you're on a set for a wild west movie. The dusty roads, the creeks, the colours... the smells... it's wonderful in the summer. It's a peaceful retreat near...
Its really small so if you like the city...well
Western-Themed Civilization with Good Beer!
My friends and I camped at the Ballard Campground about 15 minutes West of Winthrop, WA. Nice grounds, close to trailheads, clean facilities and occasionally running water. Highly recommended!

The food is your typical pub venue. Lots of hamburgers, fried food and basic appetizers. The food was decent and the beer was AWESOME!! Loved the beer! Maybe after 3 days of camping...anything would have been good, but I genuinely believe that the beer was top notch! The staff was friendly but needed more help. It was slow to get our menus and to order our food. The beer, however, was definitely worth the wait!
Favorite Dish: The nachos were DELICIOUS! And any of the beer!
Winthrop plays up its cowboy culture to the extreme. some may call it corny, but it's all in good fun.

GO the EXACT speed limit through the small towns on your way to Winthrop!! My friend got a speeding ticket for going 40 in a 35 mph zone! The cop had an unmarked car too!! YIKES!
Chelan is off the beaten path from Winthrop - it's a few hours drive away down the highway, but a gorgeous drive at that! Chelan's famous for its lake and apple-heritage town. For more info, check out my Chelan page!Photo: My sister, my mom and me infront of Lake Chelan.more
Follow the North Cascades Highway (Hwy 20) westbound through the Cascade Mountains. Here's my sister (and her hat!), my Dad and my Mom at Washington Pass, the highest peak on the highway. It's quite amazing. We drove up the highway and decided to stop off at this park which was located at the top of the pass. Little did we know that the park would...more

When I was 17 years old my parents took us to Winthrop, a wild-western town in the Methow Valley. Everything was in country western theme. And while it sounds super cheesy, the gimmick actually works. Winthrop isn't really near any major tourist attraction, so those that end up here have to actually know about it to get here.more
