Things to know before you arrive:
Getting to Hozomeen
The only vehicle access to Hozomeen is via the Silver-Skagit Road, a 39-mile (62.4 km) gravel road leaving Highway 1 just three kilometers west of Hope, British Columbia (exit 168). The Silver Skagit road is graded at times, but washboards and potholes are common. Carry a spare tire as flats occur due to sharp rocks. There is no gas or services available at Hozomeen.
Hozomeen has two graded cement ramps, which are generally accessible from mid-June through September. There is no boat launch on the south end of Ross Lake; to reach Hozomeen from the south, canoes, kayaks, and small crafts can be launched at Colonial Creek Campground, boated five miles on Diablo Lake, then portaged around Ross Dam to Ross Lake. Ross Lake Resort offers a portage service. Learn more about boating on Ross Lake.
The 31-mile East Bank Trail along Ross Lake connects State Route 20 (at milepost 138) to Hozomeen Campground. This trail takes multiple days to hike, and permits are required for overnight stays in the backcountry.
Hozomeen Campground has 75 designated sites and facilities include pit toilets, potable water, picnic tables and fire grates. Guests must pack-out all trash.
