Named for the Cle Elum River at the site of a Northern Pacific Railway station, this small town quickly became a popular location for mining.
Now better known for its trails and hiking than mining, Cle Elum is an excellent vacation destination. If you happen to be in the Pacific Northwest, make sure to book a room with us at Suncadia Resort.
