Diablo Lake is a beautiful lake along mountain highway 20, formed between two electricity-generating dams. The lake has intense colors at different times of day and seasons, sometimes dependent upon the amount of glacial flour mixed into the water from higher up. A wide open overlook is easily accessible by car, as well as several roadside access points. A campground is available on the south side, and water-access-only campsites can be found by kayak or canoe around the lake. You can even paddle up to the dam that separates Diablo Lake from Ross Lake, for an up close and personal view, plus see the upper structure of the lower dam, too.
