This is my absolute favorite summer weekend getaway from Portland. It’s just over a two hour drive and once there, a beautiful 2 mile flat forested hike in. There are five designated sites and many more sites along the way along the edge of the lake. Each spot is private and has its own beach. The water is warm and absolutely perfect for swimming. Great spot for wildlife viewing. Once watched a hawk devour a bat right in our campsite. We often see deer too. And, of course, the symphony of frogs at night. On a calm night you can climb out on one of the many fallen logs the protude into the lake for an epic echo effect rolling around the large lake. This place gets busy on summer weekends and parking can be tricky but I’ve always found a spot
