Roslyn, Washington (population 1000-ish) was founded in 1886 as a coal mining town by Logan M. Bullet, vice president of the Northern Pacific Coal Company. Legend has it, it was named after Roslyn, Delaware, where his love interest was said to reside. Just off I-90 and only a couple of miles Northwest of Cle-Elum, Roslyn is a mecca for Winter and Summer recreation activities—including the best mountain biking in Washington. Visitors can rent a bike and hit the trails without having to worry about bike racks and shuttles. Hiking and Snowmobiling are the most popular activities, but Roslyn and the surrounding area are also major destinations for camping, fishing, horseback riding, and golf. Roslyn is also the gateway to Salmon La Sac and several Alpine Lakes—and our Basecamp is an ideal headquarters to gear up for hiking and camping excursions.

Of special note, Roslyn provided the backdrop for the television series Northern Exposure. In the series, Roslyn played the role of the fictional town of Cicely, Alaska. Today, many of the buildings look just as they did when the series concluded over 15 years ago. Roslyn is also filled with quaint, unique shopping and dining experiences.
