On a hot summer day, it feels good to see snowy Mt Hood towering over the blue waters of the lake. It’s a classic summer mountain scene, with green firs and lots of kids splashing around. The restrictions on motorized boats keeps it peaceful. Kayak...More

We went to Lost Lake to kayak and fly fish for trout. The Lake has beautiful views of Mount Hood and the fly fishing for trout was fun - 3 of us caught about 11 small rainbows. However, the rental kayaks are abominable. At 6’0”...More

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 privately maintained trail that...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 views of Mt Hood...More
