Clear Lake Resort
Reviewed 17 June 2013

The resort is incredible and the lake is truly unlike anywhere else i have ever seen. My primary purpose in going is typically to dive, it is some of the clearest water anywhere which is a huge appeal to divers. The cabins are very nice and a great place to stay; the main lodge area has a restaurant, the food is well priced and tastes very good after a mornings dives. My one and only complaint is the main park ranger there. He is terrible, and has come close to ruining a couple trips for me there. He seems to have a vendetta against divers and it almost felt like harassment at times, seemed he made a point to follow us around and was very condescending and disrespectful; despite getting nothing but the utmost respect from myself and my diving buddy. Also his complaints about it being summer and not liking all the people there was definitely very unprofessional. I do wish i recalled his name.. but alas. It is always worth a trip if you are a diver, or couple wanting to get away for a couple days, just try to avoid the Ranger.

Room Tip: If you are a diver get the cabins farthest north, great entry point for diving the north end of the...

Clear Lake is a beautiful spot for relaxation and family fun. The resort has cabins for overnight stays, both "rustic" (no plumbing) and "modern" (toilet, sink and shower). The campground showers and toilets are nearby the cabins, and potable water is available from numerous outdoor pumps, so "rustic" was not too inconvenient if you're used to campgrounds.

The cabins themselves are small and older, but reasonably tidy. Each has a small propane stovetop for cooking. The "rustic" cabin my brother stayed in was a single-room unit (no privacy here), with a bed & futon on the ground floor, a mattress in the small loft above. It was cute and well maintained, The "modern" we stayed in had a four-top stove, sink, and refrigerator. It had two separate wood-paneled bedrooms which were small, but functional.

NOTE: you must bring in your sheets & pillows, towels, and dishes, etc. They have a cleaning staff, but this is pretty basic campling here - no room service. No cell phone reception either.

The resort is also for day use, and has a small snack shop and other sundries. The nearest convenience store is 22 miles away, so be sure to bring in what you need.

The lake and grounds are the major plusses here, It's quiet, peaceful, and beautiful. The lake itself is indeed clear and VERY cold (swimming is for the adventurous only). Aside for one car path for access for the cabins, it's pretty pedestrian- and kid-friendly. The resort provides boat rentals at a reasonable cost. Lots of walking trails around, too: I recommend the 5 mile walk around the lake on the well-marked trails.

I do recommend the nearby attractions, particularly the Sahalie and Koosah Falls. The Three Sisters are a remarkable sight as well. This is a great and beautiful getaway
