I miss camping under the old growth at Rockport SP. Still a nice lunch spot and hike.

Rockport has the old Steelhead Park along the Skagit River.

That is such a neat place. When ever we camp at Rasar we stop by Rockport to have a picnic lunch and walk under the massive old growth tree's. (to those that have never seen it, the branches of those old tree's are as big as the trunks of normal tree in other CG's. One falling could kill many - that's why it closed to camping now)
I'd like to see them remove enough tree's just inside the camping area to make it safe and use the funds from the timber sales to improve the CG's facility and re-open.
I know they wont ever tough a single tree though.

Stop at Diablo Lake Overlook for bathroom break and a beautiful view plus kiosks about geography, geology and history. Easy access westbound. Just watch for folks cruising westbound when exiting.

Rockport is another rest stop plus trees are amazing. You can park there for 15 minutes without Washington state parks pass. I, too, wish we could still camp there. In the soring, native dogwoods are in bloom; early fall, the vine leaf maple are colorful.

Speaking of fall colors the route has a couple of unusual sights - western larch around Loup Loup pass (and campground), and subalpine larch around Washington Pass.
