Heavily forested campground, therefore pretty dark. The sites are small (few exceptions) and placed awkwardly. Most are unlevel. Some are just a pullout from the loop road. However, due to the trees and shrubbery there is some privacy. Water taps are around. We stayed here after Labor Day, so one loop was closed already and the other was almost completely occupied. We'll try another location when traveling through the area next time. We camped at Colonial Creek (NPS Campground) in a Truck Camper.

Typical Forest Service campground with spacious sites and a few unruly people. The campground fills by Thursday and there are no other campgrounds within short distance of this one. The restroom near the lake front sites was being worked on so substituting were some portable out houses. Amphitheater presentations were worthwhile. Some great site seeing within short driving distance. We camped at Colonial Creek (NPS Campground) in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

All sites are first come, first serve. We saw that if you left some personal belongings to hold a site until you could fill out the pay tag, people would remove your items and place their pay tag on the site indicator. This type of action seemed to be frequent and was known to the park rangers. Obtain a pay tag before you look for a site.

It was beautiful, the trees were thick, but not made for larger RVs unless you look closely at the map before you reserve. Find one that is WIDE, not so narrow we could barely get out of our RV. This is a tenters paradise. Plus it was bloody hot and with no electricity, we had to leave. We camped at Colonial Creek (NPS Campground) in a Fifth Wheel.

This is a great old fashioned sort of campground set along the shores of Diablo Lake in North Cascades National Park. There are no hook-ups and the pads tend to be rather small although there were some rigs in the 30' range in the campground when we were there. There are flush toilets but no showers. A dump station is available. The primo sites here are best suited to those using tents as they are set up in such a way that you park your vehicle and then walk 10' to 15' to your campsite along the shore of the lake. There are beautiful views from these sites and some work OK for smaller rigs. If you enjoy sitting around the campfire, hiking, fishing, canoeing, kayaking, bicycling or just being in the woods you'll enjoy this park. The not too difficult Thunder Knob trail leaves from the campground and takes you to gorgeous views of the Cascade Mountains and Ross Lake. The price I quote is for those with a Senior Access pass. Regular fee is $12 a night. We would definitely return! We camped at Colonial Creek (NPS Campground) in a Travel Trailer.

All sites are primitive but paved. We were the only ones in the whole loop so had our pick of sites. This is a beautiful mountainous area but remote. There are many hiking trails for all ages. We camped at Colonial Creek (NPS Campground) in a Fifth Wheel.

We really enjoyed this park but found the beach access very difficult. You have a long hike in and there are some huge dunes to get over. Not a problem if you are in good shape but we saw many people struggling. Kids loved the dunes and played on them for hours. Winds tend to be fierce in this area so dressing warmly, even in summer, is necessary. Lots of paved bike trails and hiking available. Very pretty park. We camped at Colonial Creek (NPS Campground) in a Travel Trailer.

This campground is heavily wooded and it rains a lot here! It is a gorgeous area though. The campground is on Diabo Lake. It is a typical old national park campground and there are very few sites for large RVs. Cell phone service is not available and there are no nearby stores. There are no roads to explore other than the main highway but there are many trails. We camped at Colonial Creek (NPS Campground) in a Motorhome.
