It never changes, timeless and a true Zen like experience like no other.thank you to the owner Tom and his amazing crew! We can't say enough and...

First, it is extremely difficult to get a cabin and their wait list is typically many pages long. If you are lucky and persistent, you will eventually be able to visit this incredible and special place. There is no wifi and no televisions; You will be up close and personal with the North Cascades wilderness and have access to the...

A high school friend of mine and I first saw the Ross Lake Resort in the summer of 1956 when we hiked up the side of Ross Dam, rented a rowboat from the then fledging resort and rowed miles up the lake to Couger Island to camp out for a week and fish. We caught so many trout we had...

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...

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...

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...

What a blast. Hike down and call the resort and they come pick you up in a speed boat. The resort itself is a marvel to see. We rented a canoe and paddled acros the kake to a nice spot and swam. The lake is filked with fish and is stunning. It was a perfect way to cap off our...

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...

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.

“The farther down the boardwalkl your cabin is, the fewer people will be walking in front of your cabin, so try to get one toward the end.”

“Try to score modern cabin #8 if you want electric heat rather than a wood stove. The little cabins have a queen size bed and are better for couples. But they only have wood stove for heat.”

“If you find yourself on the wait list, keep calling to inquire on cancellations. Better yet, if you're 'local,' stop by and inquire about cancellations in person. That's how we scored our reservation! :)”
