I love sitting at the lodge admiring the beautiful view. The water is so peaceful among the mountains.

We drove past Crescent Lake twice. Once we stopped to take photos. It's a beautiful lake. There's a huge section of the road which is under construction now which is kinda a pain, but the lake is still lovely. Easy to get to.

Gorgeous lake, nicer than Lake Quinault we thought, and at 6 am in full fog (luck?) it was like a dream!

Great to visit and have a meal, but recommend a different lodge. No Wi-Fi. Bed hard. Sheets thin. Front desk slow and understaffed.

Spring 2018, there is road construction on the way up tot Crescent Lake. Call the lodge specific number for an update on when the road is open and the length of any delay.

Just breathtakingly beautiful with the color of the water & we sat at the end of the dock to soak it all in! It was windy so dress warm!

I'm from the Midwest where lakes are common. The one difference here is the color of the water. It was so pretty and colorful! Very clear water. Would have loved to take a canoe ride on it! If you aren't used to seeing lakes, this...More

Hello, When we were at Crescent Lake we did not stay at the hotel/motel or have an RV. I would call them to find out if there is space. June could be busy and you may not have the spot. Hope this helps. Safe travels!

I'm not sure. I haven't camped there before. You could reach them by calling the park and finding out through their Park Rangers or the Lake Crescent Lodge staff.
