My husband and I wanted the true experience of the North Cascades National Park. That's hard to do. We day hike, but many of the hikes here are long and require camping. Ross Lake Resort is popular and hard to book. We wanted to stay here, but were unable. One day, we hiked in just to see it and rent... More

Ross Lake Resort would be a great place to spend a couple days enjoying the peace and quiet of the lake and its scenery. I didn't personally stay in the resort overnight but the friendly staff did allow me to look around, check out the rooms, and ask questions about accommodations. The resort staff gave my friends and I a... More

We hiked down from Highway 20, called up on a pink phone to have the water taxi grab us and cross the lake to the resort. We rented kayaks and spent the next two hours enjoying the incredible beauty of the surroundings. Simply WOW! What an amazing location. It is remote, isolated, perfect for those wanting to get away from... More

This place is so ooh cool. The floating cabins are located on remote Ross lake. The location is breathtaking. The lodges are simple but clean and very nice. The staff is very friendly and helpful. This is a one of a kind place. You either take a boat to get there or hike the two miles there and back. You... More

I have been going to Ross Lake Resort for 20+ years, and each year I look forward to it more than the last. It's always beautiful, cabins always clean, staff always friendly and helpful. No cell phones, no tv, no wifi, no roads, absolutely no distractions from the beauty of Ross Lake. Hiking, fishing, swimming, boating, napping.... It's perfect.

My wife and I stayed at the Ross Lake Resort October 13-15, 2014. It is located on Ross Lake in the North Cascades National Park/Recreational Area. It is one of the few parks in the National Park system that does not charge an entrance fee. We had a great time. To get there you will have to take two boats... More

If you want a true NW experience with the authentic surroundings of a real cabin, this is the right resort. There is noway to describe this experience you really have to see it to believe it. It maybe difficult for some who has limited mobility, but i would just ask. I have never seen such beautiful surroundings, comfortable yet real... More
