“Quiet Wooded Campground”

Reviewed Aug 18, 2018

Overall Rating

Newhalem Creek Campground is very close to the Northern Cascades National Park visitors' center and the small town of Newhalem. We dry camped in an RV site in Loop C. We arrived on a Thursday evening without reservations and there were just a few sites available for 2 consecutive nights. Loops A and B were heavily wooded and many of th... more

“Beautiful National Park Campground; Nestled in the Forest!”

Reviewed Jul 31, 2018

Overall Rating

We stayed here the end of June 2018! :) The nightly rate of $8 per night is half off using my access pass. Normal rate is $16 per night :) This National Park campground is nestled in the forest and feels very remote even though it isn't. Walking distance to the visitors center and a short drive into the town of Newhalem. Make ... more

“Lovely wooded campsites”

Reviewed Jul 30, 2018

Overall Rating

Newhalem was the start of our trek through the Northern Cascades and the area is just beautiful. We were dry camping in Loop C, a portion of which was damaged in a 2015 fire. It's recovering, but the outside edge of the loop, basically from site 84 to site 107 or so, still shows damage. We were in site 114, leafy and green. You can he... more

Located walking distance to the north cascade visitor center and numerous hiking trails start in the campground- what more could you want? Great wooded area, easy access, level sites, dump station available. AT&T fluctuated from 4g to LTE but Verizon worked great the whole time. Make sure to do the hike behind the electric plant... more

“Nice Newhalem”

Reviewed Aug 18, 2016

Overall Rating

We scored a big pull through with no reservations on an August Monday afternoon. This is a very nice campground with paved roads and pads. Good dump station. Nice trails they lead down to the creek which looked more like a river to me.

One of the loops is still closed from the fires last year.

We have stayed at Newhalem Campround numerous times. It's completely paved with lots of tall trees and moderate separation between campsites. In late 2015, there was a fire in forest surrounding the campground. Since then, loop C is now closed. Hopefully reopening in 2017. Since the fire, the NPS have made ALL sites reservable onli... more

We had a reservation at Newhalem Creek Campground in the North Cascades National Park on site C-106 for 5 days. The campground has a lot of large, well-spaced, wooded, paved sites that will accommodate larger RV's. There are no utilities. Restrooms have flush toilets but no showers. With a senior pass, we paid $6/night. The campgr... more

A national park campground at the beginning of August? It must be swarming with people. Probably staying up until 2am partying. This is gonna suck. Nope. Newhalem Campground is awesome. The sites are level, fresh asphalt, and have plenty of old growth trees between them. The only thing I could think of negatively: 1) no nearby town wi... more

“Newer campground with great Verizon connectivity”

Reviewed Dec 31, 2014

Overall Rating

Both Olympic National Park and North Cascades National Park use a very strange campsite selection & payment system. It involves extra work for campers but must somehow reduce the workload for the rangers. This campground is just south of the Seattle City Light company town of Newhalem and is newer than any of the other federal campgrou... more

A typical national park campground. Nicely wooded. Separation/privacy between sites is adequate, not great. Not all sites are suitable for RVs, but there are plenty that are. This is an underutilized National Park; I was able to snag a site late on a Saturday afternoon in the middle of summer. There is one reservable loop, and the ... more
