Lovely lake not far from Portland. There is a 1.9 mile loop trail that is easy to traverse and picturesque. This lake is popular for fishing and swimming.

Took my wife to the lake and easily hiked along the lake. Several spots had absolutely great photo ops of Mt Hood. Weekends are very busy so try to go midweek!

We managed to visit Trillium Lake the one summer day it decided to rain....and it was still beautiful and so serene. Lots of people walking and fishing and enjoying themselves. We will be back soon!

We visited this beach during an unusually hot, summer day in Portland area. So this beach was understandably crowded. The area was dirtier than our other stop that day, and in general the atmosphere was less family-friendly than our other stops in this area. The...More

It can vary greatly. If this winter is any indication as to how it will be later in the year, expect cold temperatures (~ 40F during the day, ~ 25-30F at night). Most likely there will still be snow/ice. The campground does... More
