“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.

“Part of the National Park - wooded well maintained park”

Reviewed Jul 07, 2016

Overall Rating

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

“Great National Park Campground, Fires Ran Us Out”

Reviewed Aug 26, 2015

Overall Rating

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

“Big spaces. Quiet -- even in the summer!”

Reviewed Aug 03, 2015

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

“Nice wooded campground, good nearby hiking, good Verizon”

Reviewed Aug 31, 2014

Overall Rating

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
