Morning mist swirls over the bright, glacier-fed turquoise waters of Diablo Lake just a stone’s throw from the Colonial Creek Campground at North Cascades National Park. It’s not a small campground—94 sites altogether—but Colonial Creek is relatively remote, protected by old-growth forest on the south side of Route 120. A number of good hiking trails begin at the campground (and there are others just down Route 120) and the lake is popular for fishing and brisk swims. The campground offers all the standard amenities—flush toilets, firepits, potable water and garbage cans—and is open for reservations May through September.
