This on is off the beaten path and takes a little (or a lot, depending on your point of view) get to. It is essentially a fresh water lake with a view of Mount Hood. It is a state park and has a lot of camping spots available (as in tent, not RV). There is a general store and boat dock at one end of the lake. There you can rent rowboats and SUPs. The general store has the requisite ice cream treats, frozen candy bars, and seriously expensive beer (but consider that you’re at least 30 minutes from the nearest 7-eleven). There is a pretty cool lakeside trail that circumnavigates the lake, comprised of wooden bridges in some places and plain old trail in others. While we didn’t go in I imagine the lake is extremely clean (didn’t notice any gas engines anywhere) and plenty refreshing. Scenically, you can get a better view of Mt. Hood driving on the road. If you’re into sitting by a lake for the day then I would go. Otherwise, invest more time at the waterfalls.
