Ross Lake is such a beautiful area with some nice trails, but I still preferred some of the other trails like Rainy Lake.

Spent 3 days on Ross Lake and Lake Diablo. Incredible Scenary and Place to Visit. Rented a Canoe on the way here from Bloedel Donovan Park in Bellingham and was able to canoe both lakes. HIghly recommended.

BEAUTIFUL DRIVE

Get away during the summer and drive up to Ross Lake. Make reservations if you want to rent a boat or canoe. You can get there in one day from Seattle and points north. The scenery is incredible!

The North Cascade NP with the Ross Lake NRA is one of the crown jewels of the National Park System. Our family visited in mid July. Because of the remote location, it is an under used park. The lack of crowds were a welcome relief compared to most Western National Parks. The untouched beauty whether traveling by car or hiking will last a lifetime. The Cascade River Road provides access to the Cascade Pass, and the North Unit. Be sure to take Cascade Pass hike.

Gorgeous lake

We were amazed at the gorgeous turquoise color of the water of Lake Ross. The Northern Cascades are spectacular and to view the lake nestled amongst the mountains is surreal.

Pleasant way to spend the morning.
Sep 2019
The boat tour was very pleasant. The scenery was great and the tour guides were interesting and informative. Just as the Gorge Dam tour, the guide´s presentations were very professional.

I did not go into the dam because I had a sore foot and could not walk very far. People who went into the dam seemed to like that part of the tour also.

Ross Lake is an interesting area. The color of the water is beautiful. There is a nice hike down to the damn and over the other side that goes by the floating cabins. I bet it would be a great place to be at night. It is worth the stop and worth the hike.
