We loved this place for the beautifull views and the peace and quiet. Several people had a boat but the noise never bothered us.

Terrific winter-time destination! Snow machines available for rent at a fair price and they are all fairly new machines! The staff are terrific! Also a great place to go to get out of the summer heat! The restaurant is good too!

I love going to that lake every now and then, it is a great to view, clean air, calming place. I wish I do not live too far from it. I wish I could live next to it. I could have gone every day there.

Gorgeous lake but - in May - there were so many midges you couldn't go outside. We didn't see them in any other place in Oregon

Began fishing Diamond back in the 50's, where it was one of the two best lakes in Oregon for trout. The fishing has cycled through many ups and downs, and a boat is almost a necessity, unless you know where to access the deeper water...More
