There are limited hotels and motels available in nearby towns. You have to go almost 60 miles west to get to the decent sized town of Sedro-Wooley to really have a choice of accommodations. I continued south on Interstate 5 to Everett because it was too early to stop.
Services in North Cascade National Park are very limited. There are NO campgrounds in the national park itself and very few in the recreation area associated with the park. There are three camping areas along Washington Highway 20: Colonial Creek; Newhalem; and Goodell Creek. These are first come first served with no reservations. I did not stay here just wanted to let you know what is available. Thee are several camping areas not far outside the park.
With more than 20 public camping sites within the park, many visitors opt to stay in these locations if their visits are more than one day. I found it to be a very pleasant way to take in the surroundings. Many campsites are near creeks or rivers which provide for a continuous sound of running water. Campfires are also allowed most times of the year. Park campsites may fill up in the busy seasons so if you can, reserve them ahead of time. To reserve your place go to campsites on US 20 or other campsites. Then book your campsite online.
Higher altitude with stream running nearby.
