Family Getaways at the North Cascades Institute

Connect with your family and nature too at the North Cascades Environmental Learning Center on Diablo Lake in northwest Washington State. Spend quality time together while enjoying the invigorating mountain air and starry night skies of the North Cascades, but leave the tent at home because comfortable accommodations in our cozy lodges offer the excitement of the great outdoors without the complications of camping! Wonderful meals, with the tastes of young diners in mind, are served buffet-style in our lakeside dining hall. Kids and adults will enjoy learning about nature through adventures on the lake and trails, games, arts and crafts, storytelling and scientific explorations.
