Located about 2 miles north of George the Quincy lakes are a group of 4 manmade irrigation lakes, Evergreen, Burke, Quincy and Stan Coffin lakes. Activities include fishing (Trout, Bass, Walleye, Perch), hiking, horseback riding, geocaching and more. Boat launches are available and lots of spots are available for dry camping. Pit toilets are located throughout the area. Can be noisy on summer weekends but very quiet during mid week.

Once free, now a "Discovery Pass" is required to recreate on public lands in Washington. The pass is $10/day or $30/year

Beautiful Views and Spacious Camp Areas

We absolutely love Quincy Lakes! The first time we visited this area it was Easter weekend and despite what looked like 50 RVS, tent campers, and horse trailers there were plenty of spaces to park. A lot of the camp areas are near the lake, have soft grass, and are within walking distance to a vault toilet. There are also several hiking trails that take you down into a valley with several waterfalls to admire. If you have a boat there are plenty of spots to launch at the lakes and enjoy the water.

There isn't much to gather as far as firewood but there are some great fire rings at some of the camp areas.

We got four AT&T bars near the entrance to the park and got down to two or three further back. However, at three bars with my phone on top of the van I was still able to connect to my hotspot and get relatively fast internet.

There were a few downsides to the area. If it is hot and sunny you will get toasty. There is pretty much no shade at all. There were also tons of horses which meant horse poop on the road and constantly having to stop our dogs from barking at passing horses. Sound also carried pretty far from site to site and across the lake so we did hear the occasional drunken conversation from around some campfires. Overall we really enjoyed the spot and would highly recommend it if you're in Eastern Washington.

Stayed here in a 12 foot-long Passenger Vehicle. Adventroverts would stay here again.

Fairly level 15' feet from the water and 20 feet off of the well maintained gravel road. Lots of sites available in late Sept.

Nice quiet setting within a few feet of the lake. Vault toilets too. I was there at the end of September 2014 in a 32' Class C motorhome. No problems navigating the area.

Stayed here in a 32 foot-long Class C (RV). Steve would stay here again.

There is a gate on the south entrance to the lakes however I had never in 30 years seen it closed. I do believe that due to illegal dumping and vandalism in the area over the last several years they have started locking the southern entry in the off season. Entry should still be possible from the northern access. We have not been to Evergreen or Burke lake for several years now.

I haven't been there yet but did read one gate was close due to vandalism and garbage dumping. Go to other entrance.

I'm sorry that you were unable to find a place to camp. You must have been in the wrong area? This area has many approved locations for camping around the lakes. The marker is also on public land. Here are some maps to illustrate.

You now need Washington's Discover pass to park here. $10 for 1 day, $30 for year. It can be used at all the state parks and other places requiring a Discover pass
