__truncato_root__>Carved into the northern foothills of the Olympic Mountains lies Lake Crescent. A rare case, Lake Crescent was formed when a landslide divided an ancient lake some 7,000 years ago. Truly unique for fans of fishing, you can catch different species of trout in either lake, a result of thousands of years of genetic isolation. An ideal location for adventurers seeking natural beauty, Lake Crescent is surrounded by several hiking trails. Whether you're looking to climb mountains or explore the lowland forests and creeks, the trails will not fail to amaze. Campers love to take to the water in the summer and spring and with rentals of all sorts available it has never been easier. Under two hours from Boise, ID, Lake Crescent is an essential experience for any camper who can reach its shores.
