We were staying about 20 miles from lake crescent and found it so beautiful we went 2 days in a row! It is so picturesque and looked very different under overcast light and sunshine! The lake is very peaceful and has very little boating activity or even lodging (especially compared to Lake Sutherland nearby). In the right light, you can... More

Was there for sunset. The skies were cloudy and foggy, with some light rain. Yet sun was shining through in some directions. This made for some interesting photos. I can’t imagine how spectacular the scenery would be from the lake viewpoints and from the lodge when there’s a beautiful sunset. The lodge looked wonderfully cozy inside. Nice Adirondack chairs along... More

So lovely. Of course, it would have been more lovely if not on the main highway and we had it to ourselves. But it's quiet easy to find an isolated little piece of shore to yourselves. Bring a picnic, a towel, find a rock, and settle in. The water is crystal clear and perfectly crisp and refreshing - it's just... More

We were starving after leaving Cape Flattery and according to the policeman that pulled us over, Crescent Lake Lodge was a close location for us to get food. We come around a bend and there's this gorgeous lake in the middle of the mountains. There was one point where we could see three different colors in the water as well... More

In many ways similar to Flathead Lake if you've been to that area of Montana. Lovely, photogenic, not busy this time of year (October).

Step back in time.... gorgeous spot! Next time we are here, we plan to stay in one of the cottages (dog-friendly). We enjoyed our short visit, walked around the lakeshore, and checked out the main lodge and cottage area, and relaxed lakefront for a while. Even if you can't stay at the lodge, this is a great spot for a... More

It has a very special feeling about it. The waters are clear and blue, the surrounding hills tall and green. I feel utterly at peace here.

Crescent Lake is beautiful, but on a sunny day, it is amazing! The blues of the water are fabulous and something you don't see everywhere. Well worth a visit!
