“Clear Mountain Lake”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 September 2012

Incredibly clear mountain lake right in the center of central Oregon's volcanic heart. The beaches/ shore consisted of very small gravel so water shoes are helpful but not necessary. The vista is a large clear lake sitting in tall, green conifer forests surrounded by a volcanic mountain range. Just incredible. The lake is amply large to be easily shared by swimmers, paddlers and boaters. I will definitely visit this great place again.

“Great place to swim”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 August 2012

In the volcanic area, this lake had a nice beach for swimming with water shoes - just little rocks. Great for kids, nice shallow slope. Or there's a little dock to put the kayaks/rowboats in. We heard the osprey like to fish there in the late afternoon, but didn't see any. Nice place to refresh or picnic.

“Wonderful!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 June 2012

This is a must for camping! Wake up to the beautiful sounds of the forest while you cook your breakfast over an open fire! Enjoy your afternoon kayaking, fishing or relaxing on one of the many beaches this lake has to offer! If camping isnt your thing, the resort has many cabins to rent that accomidate any size family! The resort resturaunt isnt open for dinner, so make sure you have bbq plans! If you dont have a boat, the resort offers fishing and pontoon boats to rent! The staff is great as wll as the owners! Always friendly, which makes for an amazing family vacation!
