Backcountry campers will find many options throughout the park. Wilderness camps run the gamut from serene, creek-side camps perfect for a family to high and rocky camps with outstanding views. Boat-in camping on Ross Lake and camping near Stehekin offer another option for those looking to get away from it all. Within the trail and lake corridors, camping is allowed in designated sites only, to protect both the wilderness and to ensure all visitors have a quality backcountry experience. All backcountry camping requires a backcountry permit.
