Cascade Loop

We would like to take a long weekend trip along the Cascade Loop. Given that it is partially mountainous, is it a difficult drive for a motorhome towing a car?

If not, any recommendations for specific campgrounds? Places to visit?

Thank you.

The roads are all good. What is your entry and exit points?
I will be running 20 in a few weeks, but in a MG.

Only took DOT 14 days of work to open 20 this year. Opened on April 16th. Last year it didn't open until May 10th.

I went over last year on June 5th. Snow was still deep near the pass but the NP sites on the west side were open and accessible. The wildflowers were fantastic. This year move up conditions by 3 weeks or so.

Here is the WSDOT link for North Cascades, Hwy 20

We live on Whidbey so not sure where we will start. Probably near Seattle as it's easier to get to the mainland on. Saturday and come back via deception pass.

Hi, Neighbor!

I'm just across Puget Sound (to the west) from you ...and my husband left yesterday to take his motorcycle over the Hwy 20 pass! I'll report back what he has to say when he gets back this weekend.

Some questions for you:

-If you're doing the "loop", does that mean you're taking Hwy 20 one direction and Hwy 2 in the other?

-Will you be leaving/joining Hwy 20 at Twisp/Winthrop, or going on to Okanagon and/or possibly points farther East?

-Are you looking for full hookup recommendations, free boondocking, or something in between?
