  • Drove Lolo Pass yesterday. NF -18 to road into Lost Luke 6 miles and what a disappointment! Locked out!! Who decided to do this? Does the Forest Service decide or the resort?? Shameful! 
  • 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...  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...  more »

  • Our family has come here 4-5 times in the last ten years and the place has hardly changed a bit (in a good way, mostly). I highly recommend this place for families, couples, or groups looking for summer fun. There are a few things that aren't ideal but if you plan ahead this shouldn't be an issue. Pro: There aren't many places quite like this, with the scenery, activities, locale, etc. all in one small area. If you really look into it almost all of your classic summer activities can be done right here. The lodge has all of the typical vacation store essentials plus showers, picnic areas, rowboat/kayak/SUP rentals, and a little coffee shop. Bathrooms and potable water faucets are scattered adequately throughout the campground. The real great attraction for us is the lake. It is the perfect temperature this time of year (late July) and there are tons of areas to let our little ones play in the water. The banks are well shaded and mostly gravel/rocks of varying sizes which helps keep things/kids clean. Con: The facilities, maintenance, and cleaning here isn't up to the standards of what a state park would be; most of the time this is quaint, but.... The showers were flat out disgusting (as a former infantryman it takes a lot for me to think a shower isn't suitable). Sadly, this is the only reason I didn't give five stars. Other: Aside from the RV specific sites there is no electricity at the campsites, bathrooms or anywhere else really. This means that headlamps, flashlights, lanterns, and extra batteries are a necessity. The bathrooms are vault types with no lights, sinks, etc. so bring what you need to make yourself comfortable. Ultimately, I would suggest preparing as though you will be primitive camping and treat the facilities of the resort as a fallback if you need it.
  • 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.
  • 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).
  • Beautiful place. But gave it only 2 stars because it took us 2 hours to get to the lake. But discovered it is close. Web site doesn't mention it nowhere. And even give option to book a room. Very very disappointing.
  • 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.
