About This Campground

National Park Service

North Cascades National Park

At 3600 feet (1097 m), Fourth of July Pass is one of the earliest passes to melt out. For this reason, it is popular in early season, but day hikers and backpackers looking for a short trip enjoy this hike all season long. The west side follows popular Thunder Creek Trail and then heads steeply up…

Very quiet and secluded

Camped one night. Only 2 other sites taken and they were in the front. Creek very close (2min walk). Such a clean quiet space

Tough hiking, Great camping

The map is incorrect. Coming from hey 20 it is a hard gain of 1000' in less than a mile to start the 4.5 mile hike to camp. It is well rewarded with secluded sites, a grill top over one of the pits (i wouldn't advise grilling in the wilderness, you know, Bears and all) and a toilet. Well worth…

  • Sunset over the creek
  • A stream coming down Ruby Mountain just outside of camp
  • There are nice fire rings in camp

Panther Camp is located in Washington


Access via Thunder Creek Trailhead: Drive SR 20 to mile 130, Colonial Creek Campground. Park in the large lot near the boat ramp on the south side of the campground, and walk back through the campground toward the amphitheater, where the main Thunder Creek Trail begins. Access via Panther Creek Trailhead: Drive SR 20 to mile 139, the East Bank Trailhead. Park here and walk east on SR 20 across the highway bridge over Panther Creek. It is a few minutes walk to the start of the Panther Creek Trail, and you can't see the trail until you are right upon it. Look for the sign. There is a wide shoulder on SR 20, but traffic moves quickly, so please be careful crossing the highway and walk single-file along the shoulder.
