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.

We want to acknowledge and thank the past, present, and future generations of all Native Nations and Indigenous Peoples whose ancestral lands we travel, explore, and play on.
