Lake Crescent

 

Lake Crescent - This 12 mile long lake, carved by glaciers, has sparkling clear water, perfect for swimming, boating and fishing.

    Stop at East Beach, which has a sandy beach, shallow roped-off area for swimming and picnic tables (we had a lovely lunch here), and kids can play and splash in the water while parents relax.
    Hikes – Near Lake Crescent Lodge, at Barnes Point are two fun hikes for kids.
      Take the .8 mile interpretive Moments in Time Trail, which goes through the evergreen forest and by the lake – signs identify wildlife and different types of ancient trees (two trees are 300 – 700 years old).
      Older kids will enjoy a longer hike, 2 miles round trip, to Marymere Falls.
