  • Beautiful and placid. It offers a nice walking path, camping, fishing and gorgeous views of Mt. Hood. Watch out for the cranky lot attendants though, be sure to have an appropriate pass. The National Park pass doesn’t cover parking fees here.
  • It's definitely out of the way, but it's kind of this amazing treasure on the side of Mount Hood that's very peaceful and idyllic. There's a hiking trail around the lake. There were also people fishing. One of the interesting things we saw was that there was a driver that brought a truck full of fish, I think they were trout, to repopulate the lake so that people could fish. The fish were visibly happy to be out of the tank that you could see them try to jump out of water and were breaching the top.
  • Lovely old campground. no hook ups. water and out houses. large sites, quiet at night. take you bike! the loop around the lake is wonderful. warm shallow lake is very popular for swimmers and lots of kids.
  • One of the more popular places for swimming and fishing. The lake gets stocked with trout multiple times a year. You can easily pull out the limit (5 trout) per person per day.
  • Man, this place is amazing. I've been once to stargaze during a meteor shower, and also for an early morning kayak session. Both were wonderful and unforgettable. Mt. Hood resting just beyond the lake is breath taking, and the water is smooth and blue. People were fishing, kayaking and camping around the perimeter. It's also SO CLOSE to Portland, you can't really go wrong. Even when it's crowded, it's still a nice place to just be.
