Even though there was construction going on and the roadway would periodically be closed we decided to not worry about travel time and stopped to enjoy the view. We unpacked a picnic lunch and just enjoyed the view and the quiet.

This is something to see if you are in the park. The drive to the lake is incredible and there are several places to pull over and get out to enjoy the scenery. Time stops when you're here.

We have wanted to hike the newly finished Spruce Railroad Trail since they finished refurbishing it earlier this year. We picked a great late October day. The sun was out, the fall colors were their most vibrant. There was a bit of a breeze which...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.
