Welcome to


Naches — 12 miles from Yakima on U.S. Highway 12 — is a pioneer town of just over 1,000 residents, and the eastern doorstep to the Cascades. 

About the Community

Naches is home to the Naches Ranger District that oversees a big chunk of Okanogan-Wenatchee National Forest lands in the area. Visit the headquarters along Highway 12 to learn more about recreational opportunities such as camping, skiing, hunting, fishing or rafting.

In summer and fall stop by one of its road-side fruit stands or U-pick farms; in winter check out the Oak Creek Wildlife Area to see elk and bighorn sheep being fed. All year, visitors can enjoy shops, restaurants and craft beer hangouts.

Just up Highway 410, Nile Valley Days, held in mid-July, is packed with outdoor family-friendly activities: vendors with hand-crafted items, food booths, displays, kids’ games and live entertainment.

In town, Sportsman’s Days in September is one of the longest-running community events in the Yakima Valley. It features free entertainment throughout the weekend along with a midway, food booths, game booths, flea markets, and more.
