Fodor's Review

Come here for information on park hiking, wildlife watching, horseback riding, climbing, boat rentals, and fishing, as well as classroom education and hands-on nature experiences. Guided tours staged from the center include mountain climbs, pack-train excursions, and float trips on the Skagit and Stehekin rivers. Choices range from forest ecology and backpacking trips to explorations of the Cascades hot springs. There's also a research library, a dock on Diablo Lake, an amphitheater, and overnight lodging.
