  • Our host at the Villa Columbia B & B in Hood River recommended this hiking trail to us as we planned to drive the Fruit Loop. The 3+ mile trail loop circles the lake and is relatively flat. It is a pr...  read more »
  • We have been visiting here for the last 23 years and it never disappoints. It has changed owners and it is more busy than it used to. I would say it is not so lost anymore, but the beauty and majestic...  read more »
  • This is a very special place in the Mound Hood Wilderness Area. There are rooms in the main building and cabins and Yurts for rent as well as camp sites. The fishing is great here, and the hiking trai...  read more »
  • Would give more stars, but arriving after a 2 hour drive, found out the reservations were made for Memorial Day weekend 2017 not for this year. Apparently the website for Lost Lake Resort was malfunctioning. The host at the resort said this happened to several other people. So we got to stay in a yurt for one night then had to leave the next morning. We were given a full refund though. Please note the website says the yurts are walk in, ranging 100 to 300 feet. So if you have several heavy ice chests like we did, it is suggested you bring a hand truck or wagon to carry them. Beyond the previous, the camp grounds are very clean and well maintained as well the yurts. Even though we did see one person of Mexican origin, there was no indication of many others wanting to take over the place (in response to an earlier post).
  • Quite, clean, nicely kept areas. Lots of trails & other things to do there, im ready for nex year to go back! este lugar es hermoso, limpio, callado,con muchas areas para caminar, muchas cosas por hacer. lanchas de renta, y como olvidar las salamandras en el agua. recomendado 100% desde dallas tx.
  • We have been coming to Lost Lake every year to camp here or just for day use and really liked it there. However, in the last couple of years, the lake has been taken over by Mexican people and it is literally impossible to find a spot even if you are there at sunrise. The people that are camping are leaving their things overnight on all of the day use tables close to the water so even if you come very early, it is very hard to find an empty table. The camping spots are also on first come first serve basis and so you cannot plan on having a spot to camp on until you get there and see if there are any available spots. From my experience, in the last two years we were not able to find any open spots to camp on the weekend even thought we were there looking for them on Thursday. So it is just not worth the 2 hour drive for us anymore and we keep getting more and more disappointed every time. The lake is beautiful and the views are gorgeous but its a shame that the lake has been completely taken over by Mexicans. Due to this fact, it is also a lot more dirty at Lost Lake now, what with people not caring enough to throw their leftovers into the garbage, and peaces of food and random trash is all over the ground.
  • Loud family tourists, noisy kids everwhere. The camps were spacious but could see your neighbors pretty easily. Water was easily accessible and the toilets are better than other camps. The lake is beautiful and renting kayaks was easy! Wouldn't go up Lost Lake Butte trail again though, so many bugs and no rhododendrons in July at least. If you're looking for a peaceful getaway with your significant other, this isn't it. While the lake is beautiful, the screaming kids and loud parents takes away from the experience, at the camps and on the lake.
  • Love Lost Lake! Yes, it can get a bit crowded and you definitely need to book way in advance for weekends in the summer, but I love that we are never in a loss for things to do. The kids love to float on the lake, fish, rent boats to paddle around on. There are several hiking trails to explore... I would recommend Lost Lake Butte for sure, and if you want a longer hike go up to Buck Peak, the highest point in Multnomah Co... I think it was about 14 miles roundtrip from the campground, but so worth it for the view of Hood and Lost Lake!!
