Upper Skagit River

Enjoy terrific mountain scenery as you paddle the beautiful, clean, green water of the Skagit River. We journey eight miles encountering many small rapids along the way. After a hearty riverside lunch and riverside mocha bar, we encounter the famous Shovel Spur rapids, where the Skagit plunges through an S-turn with huge waves and holes. Bring the whole family to enjoy this special river adventure.

Meeting Place: We will meet at Goodell Creek Campground in Newhalem, Washington. Newhalem is 60 miles east of Burlington on Washington Highway 20 (the North Cascades Highway). From Seattle, take I-5 north 66 miles to exit 230, Wa 20 (Anacortes, Burlington). Head east, passing through Rockport and Marblemount. Look for the signs for Goodell Creek Campground 15 miles northeast of Marblemount. The drive from Seattle takes 3 hours.
