Ross lake via diablo campground

  • to

  • Diablo lake Colonial campground

    Mp 30 hwy 20, Diablo , WA (map)

    47.751076 -120.740135

  • Look for the kayaks at the campground
  • This is one of the most beautful paddles I have done. And it is warmer than San Juans.

    Everyone must have all their own equipment (rent, borrow, etc) AND have passed the self rescue with Saul or someone else. 

    We will meet Thursday to camp at Diablo lake or arrive early Friday morning. Lauch time is 8 am due to winds that pick up in the afternoon. Drive time is 2.5 hours from Seattle so plan accordingly. Carpool is recommended.

    We will paddle Diablo lake to launch at Ross Lake. We put our kayaks on wheels that are on location. Bring your straps. We push kayaks up a hill to truck. The truck then drives us over the dam to boat launch.

    Someone needs to stop in Marblemount Friday morning to pick up a camping permit. I will plan what campsite for Friday and Saturday at Ross Lake. I plan to camp in the same spot and explore with an empty kayak. There is a great hike where Jack Keroac wrote a book from a look out point.  

    Breakfast and Lunch is your own responsibility. We will have shared dinners.
