LEAVENWORTH — The Wenatchee River Ranger District closed the Tumwater Campground for the rest of the season on Friday, due to concerns of possible flooding.
The popular campground is about nine miles northwest of Leavenworth, off Highway 2.
It is located inside the footprint of the 22,571-acre Chiwaukum Fire, and is next to Chiwaukum Creek.
Due to the potential for heavy rainstorms which could create flooding this weekend, the U.S. Forest Service closed the campground immediately.
