Ross Lake Information

Ross Lake National Recreation Area is the most accessible part of the North Cascades National Park Service Complex, and offers camping and hiking.

The National Recreation Area includes three reservoirs: Ross Lake, Diablo Lake, and Gorge Lake -- water gateways to more remote areas. Ringed by mountains, it offers many outdoor recreation opportunities along the upper reaches of the Skagit River. The National Park Foundation encourages and promotes local fundraising support at individual national park sites. The Washington's National Park Fund is a nonprofit partner of the National Park Service and supports Mount Rainier, North Cascades and Olympic National Parks so they remain vital to our lives and the health of our planet forever.
