Camp Wooten Environmental Learning Center
Camp Wooten Environmental Learning Center (ELC) lies in the heart of Washington state's Blue Mountains. Camp Wooten was originally a Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) site called Camp Tucannon. Some of the original 1930s-era CCC buildings remain today, such as the mess hall. Washington State Parks, with help from the Camp Wooten Association, developed the site over the years, and now Camp Wooten is the largest environmental learning center in eastern Washington. The ELC is available for group use only. Camp Wooten ELC accommodates 240 overnight guests. The housing facilities accommodate 205 guests, and additional space is available for guests tent or RV camping. The mess hall comfortably fits 240 guests and features modern appliances, a walk-in cooler, refrigerators and freezers. Separate cabins are available for cooks, administrators and nursing staff. Restrooms and state-of-the-art shower facilities complete the overnight accommodations. Visitors can enjoy a variety of activities at Camp Wooten, including swimming, hiking, biking, wildlife watching, fishing or simply relaxing. The ELC features a heated, indoor swimming pool that slopes in depth from three to 10 feet deep.
