Camp at Olallie Lake

Oregon Paul Dennis Campground

Added by Aaron White

Experience Olallie and surrounding scenic area

Nestled in the foothills of Mt. Jefferson, Olallie Lake is an awesome summer get away. Car campers can take their pick of the many, first come first serve campsites, ranging in prices from $15-$40/night. Cabins and yurts are also available, but be sure to reserve them ahead of time. When the resort was established it was decided to be a no swimming or motorized boat lake, meaning some ideal fishing.

Though it's not just Olallie that makes this area such a popular destination. There are 46 surrounding lakes that do allow swimming, along with miles of beautiful hiking trails. Many of the smaller lakes have sites for backpackers and are so private you can score a lake to yourself.

For more information, contact the Olallie Lake Resort.

How to Get There

Make Sure To Bring Food

This place was amazing! I recommend the peninsula campground. Make sure to pack all your food before you leave home, there aren't any stores within an hour of the lake. The last 15 miles in are dirt road. Wake up crystal clear water and bald eagles looking for breakfast. The trout are abundant but not huge. So much more I could say about this place...... Just go
