“Beautiful Water, Cute Beaches, Nice Nature Stroll”
Reviewed September 4, 2013

Lake Crescent was a lovely stop. There are some places along the beach that allow dogs (just for a short stretch), which was helpful since we had our dog with us. We cooked up a delicious BBQ on the beach and really enjoyed watching the boats and birds go by. Beautiful blue lake! As an avid hiker, I only gave this four stars just because of the number of people. My husband and I regularly hike to more private, alpine lakes of similar beauty, and I really love the quiet experience of that. For an accessible, easy to reach lake, though, this is amazingly beautiful. Enjoy!

“peace, peace, peace”
Reviewed September 2, 2013

There was a storm in my mind when I was there. I saw mirror lake, deep forest, and many good people. Small birds were flying over and I was sitting near window at wonderful restaurant. I wanted to make my self bigger than now. Nature like crescent lake must be helpful since it reminds me of something sharing with it. Be there.

“Stunning and lovely”
Reviewed August 22, 2013

A gorgeous place to spend the day or overnight. The lake is stunning blue-green and as crystal clear as I've ever scene. There is a lovely lodge on the edge with decent accomodations and food although it is heavy with kids and families making a bit of noise. We didn't have enough time to find a quieter place but loved it none-the-less. It's also a great stepping off point for the Marymere waterfall trail

“Wonderful”
Reviewed August 17, 2013

Probably one of the best lakes ever. Water so very clear, cool and refreshing. Mountain are like someone took a rake and raked them link one does that old shag carpet.

“Beautiful blue”
Reviewed August 15, 2013

The color of the lake is a true blue. I was told that is the difference between glacier water and regular water. The site is breathtaking and I believe there are also some great waterfalls not far. I did not get a chance to see the waterfalls but I still enjoyed the lake.
