A 10-mile trail circumnavigates this scenic Odell lake. 65 feet of elevation gain over the hike. Fresh water fishing at the lake. Lake Depth: 300ft. Bait and tackle available at the Lake's Lodge. Fishes in the lake: Trout, Kokanee Salmon, and Mackinaw (Lake Trout). Duration: All day.

This spot in central Oregon is a beautiful, natural lake where you can combine a nice hike with an afternoon of fishing. There are opportunities for multiple hikes surrounding the lake that are moderately challenging hikes and also remain scenic throughout the 10 mile trek around the lake.

Relax after the hike down by the lake, fish, and enjoy the fresh air for a perfect afternoon.

Crescent Lake

This app doesn’t have Crescent Lake as a destination, but it’s just past Odell Lake and a definite must see! There are yurts for rent at $40/night and the lake is crystal clear. My family went camping here and we had so much fun snorkeling and lounging on the beach, then roasting s’mores around the campfire at night. The yurts were clean and had sleeping accommodations for 5. there were toilets available, but no showers. There are cabins, tent spaces or yurts to choose from with a lodge you can buy any forgotten items.
