If you are looking for a little change of pace you may want to check out the Elk and Big Horn Sheep on Hwy 12 past Naches. We live in such a great part of the US and just a few miles from the great outdoors where you can actually see Elk and Sheep running around the feeding station. If you’ve never been here a few things you’ll need to know.

Location: Naches
On Hwy. 12, 2 mi. west of the junction of Hwy. 12 and Hwy. 410
Elk are fed daily at 1:30 pm at the Oak Creek Headquarters, and the bighorn sheep are fed mid-morning at the Cleman Mountain feeding site. A normal winter season is mid-December to early March. Truck tours are available on a first-come, first served and reservation basis to take visitors out amongst the elk. These tours are supported by donations.
The visitor center at the Oak Creek Headquarters is open every day between 9:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. and is staffed by AmeriCorps and Wildlife Education Corps volunteers. Look for the helpful folks in the blue vests and caps. The center has a video program, exhibits, and a kids’ corner. All vehicles must have a Discover Pass or Vehicle Access Permit to view the exhibits and for parking. There is 15 minutes free parking.

Bring camera, extra film, binoculars, warm clothes, and lunch. For information, call the Oak Creek Wildlife at 509-653-2390.
