Scottish Lakes High Camp »

July 1st, 2015

From “Summer Days in Mountain Huts in Washington”
A RootsRated article by Samantha Larson, Seattle, WA

Located on the east side of Stevens Pass, in the winter the system of cabins that make up Scottish Lakes High Camp offer access to a variety of backcountry terrain for beginner, intermediate, and advanced skiers, snowboarders, and showshoers. Come summer, trade in those skis for boots, as this spot still makes for a great launching pad to explore the nearby alpine lakes and sweeping mountain vistas…

Little Beaver/Big Beaver Loop »

Mount Challenger

When you are dreaming about your next backpack I would suggest leafing through “Classic Hikes of North America” by Peter Potterfield. This is a book of breathtaking treks that I have reviewed in the past and gaze at it often. There are three Washington hikes in the book. This fall we hiked the Little Beaver- Big Beaver Loop in North Cascades National Park. It is known for the grove of thousand-year-old western red cedars in the Big Beaver valley. The entire loop is gorgeous along with the optional side trip to Whatcom Pass.

Opening Winter Season Events »


We are looking forward to the coming winter season! There are sorts of snow predictions some are exciting and some not so good. We had a lot of fun at High Camp last season with more snow for skiing than most people expected. We believe this season will be good also, since Scottish Lakes is so much more than snow depth. The connections with wonderful people surrounded by nature in all its beauty no matter what the weather are truly what High Camp is all about.

August Wedding! »

Sean and Rachel Newton

On August 15th Rachel LaGrange and Sean Newton were married at Scottish Lakes. We absolutely loved sharing this special event with them, their friends and family. They arrived Friday to set up, bringing family in from all over the U.S. Suddenly our wilderness village became a beautiful, wedding venue. The mood embraced the back country feel with a gentle touch of sophistication.

Car Trap

When we first purchased High Camp and were setting it up for guests we were floored by the number of mice. The place was overrun with them, nests everywhere! High Camp had not been used regularly for a while and it seemed the mice had taken over. We believed we would just clean the place up, make sure food was not left out, take care of garbage in cabins and presto! mice problem resolved. I have to say all those things helped, but mice are still and will always be an issue at High Camp. We do our best, but they were here first. So, it is a continuous battle to keep ahead of the Mice Game!
