North Cascades National Park Complex spans the Cascade Crest from the temperate rainforest of the wet west-side to the dry ponderosa pine ecosystem of the east. The park encompasses landscapes with over 9,000 feet of vertical relief. There results a high diversity of plants, over 1,600 species so far identified, and many other organisms adapted to a wide spectrum of habitats.
The relatively new mountains, glaciers and streams of North Cascades lie near a dynamic interface of tectonic plates and provide an opportunity to study geologic processes unfolding through time. Geologists and others seek answers to questions of global climate change, mountain building and erosion, volcanism, glaciation, stream dynamics, and more.
North Cascades National Park offers a variety of outdoor recreation and education activities including hiking, boating, birding, fishing, historic sites, camping, picnicking, river rafting, photography and much more.
Colonial Creek Comments & Reviews
Visted Colonial Creek Campground lately? We'd love to hear about your adventure. Did you find us useful? Did we forget something? Anything our community should know before heading out to Colonial Creek?
Primary access to North Cascades National Park and Ross Lake National Recreation Area is from the State Route 20 (SR 20) corridor.
From the west, State Route 20 connects to Interstate 5 (Exit 230) at Burlington. From the east, the highway intersects with U.S. Route 97 at Okanogan and with State Route 153 at Twisp. Due to avalanche danger, the Washington State Department of Transportation typically closes the roadway between Ross Dam Trailhead and Lone Fir Campground from November to April.
