Title: North Cascades - Chelan Weyerhaeuser permits
Post by: steeliedrew on June 22, 2021, 08:12:49 PM
Looks like due to a pending land sale they wonít be selling them. Can anyone confirm?

Yeah itís true. They sent out emails about it a month or so ago saying Hampton is buying it. Current permits are still good until the 23rd of July but no new permits from Weyerhaeuser this year in there. Supposedly Hampton will be contacting permit holders about future recreation in the area but I havenít heard anything

Can you keep this updated because I was going to get a permit for the chelan property this year since my folks live at the gate.

Thanks for the heads up. This definitely throws a wrench in the gears for my blacktail plans. hopefully Hampton will offer permits.

Iím not opposed to that either. Iíve not yet purchased one of their permits but I was planning on it this year for the drive in access on one of the properties near my home. It would have allowed me to easily load up my kids and take them with.

Well did a little digging around and this is what I found on Hamptons website.  Sounds to me that access is granted expect for high fire dangers.  Correct me if I missed something please.

One can only hope, but they did install some big gates to keep the trash dumpers out.

Which pieces of the permit property did they purchase as there was a fair amount under that permit? The property up north out of Granite Falls I take it.

It appears they bought all of it. Including the ones along Highway 2.

Online it says there closed now.. Most likely for the summer if I had to guess.. This will be interesting because Hampton seems to be open to the public as there policy.. But the fact weyerhaeuser passes sell out so fast and the locations of some gates someone in Hampton might decide to carry out the pass idea..not sure if Hampton gets a sort of tax break for public access or not.. But this will be and interesting situation

      Have enjoyed the N. Cascade/Chelan  permit area myself when Weyerhaeuser owned it. Was happy to see the email from Hampton about offering permits. I did notice that the area on the south side of US2, just east of Gold Bar, wasn't marked on their map. I called them yesterday, and they confirmed,  that area was not going to be accessible with that permit.

Same but before it went to 647 about 5 days ago randomly and came back.. Have tried to call Hampton many times not the 3rd party and it sounds like a *censored* show.. Some Weyerhaeuser employees got brought on some didnt no one knew a thing.. Wouldnt be surprised if this isnt fixed till tomorrow..maybe there not used to people fighting over land access like this since?

Kind of local knowledge. Its quite a walk starting from Highway 2 side gate

I've been going to that area for years. Before weyco when it was walk-in, then walk-in/drive in with weyco passes. Im just curious as to how its local knowledge that you can walk-in with no permit when for the past several years under weyco its been by permit only. Is it posted at the gate now that you can walk-in with no permit? Genuinely curious as I like hitting that area once or twice.

So then you know that it used to be drive in to the Hancock yellow gate by Lake Cavanaugh. This was allowed to be drive in due to the fact there was USFS property north of that Weyco gate. Then ass hats were dumping garbage and shooting up logging equipment. Thus they started locking the gate off highway 2. So you can park and walk in since there is USFS property. But your not allowed to walk in past the Lake Cavanaugh gate without the permit.

Who did you email? And how long did it take to get a response? I am trying to get ahold of them to see when they are going to come out the new locks on the gate. Went to go in Sunday and the old lock was still on the gate and could not get in.

.  I emailed Hampton and they did confirm that the closure is for Chelan County, was a little misleading on their page. Did go to the gate that I believe is the access gate near Granite Falls still has the Weyerhaeuser  sign stating access by permit only, gate was open went and checked my key on the lock and it wasnít even close to working. Since this is my first time buying this permit is there a different access gate? Any help would be appreciated.
