  • Beautiful lake and dam. The water is so still and sparked in the sun. You really can't find a more picturesque spot.  more »
  • This dam has a feature that is unique. There is arosdway you can drive on. We crossed the dam and enjoyed tremendous views of the lake.  more »
  • Diablo Lake Overlook is one of the best sights in the park. It is located about 30 miles east of the North Cascades NP Visitor Center. Access is via an easy drive over the paved North Cascades Highway. The overlook consists of a parking lot and viewing area on a high bluff above Diablo lake. Below one can view the turquoise waters of the lake and adjoining creeks. Cool winds rush up the side of the cliffs giving the viewer the sensation of being among the ethereal atmosphere of the gods.
  • Breathtaking views! The drive is scenic and lovely. If you are prone to car sickness don’t forget to take your Dramamine. There are lots of curves on the roadway.
