Olallie Lake Rustic Resort Cabin Rental

The Olallie Lake Rustic Resort is a wonderful place to get away from it all and relax in nature on the shore of a lovely high-mountain lake.

Here are a few points of interest:

  • Fishing: Olallie Lake is stocked with rainbow trout and brood trout. They rent row boats for trolling. Motor boats are not allowed (which is nice).

  • Hiking: There are several miles local trails to hike on. There's a four mile hike around Olallie Lake, the Redlake Trail and the Pacific Crest Trail (PCT) that can take you all the way to Mexico or Canada.

  • Swimming: No swimming is allowed in Olallie Lake.  Head Lake is nearby (within 5 minutes of the store) and has a dock, large rocks to sit on and is a wonderful swimming lake. There are also over 25 lakes in the scenic area to hike to and swim in.

  • Dogs: Dogs are allowed! Yay! But they must be kept on leash per Forest Service regulations.

  • Getting there: The last ten miles, or so, of the road are pretty rough. Most reasonable cares should be able to make it but I'd suggest a 4x4.

There are cabin and yurt rentals and a little general store which has food and adult beverages. Like most resort stores it's a little pricey.

The cabins are comfortable and have wood stoves (firewood is included).


This is absolutely our favorite place in Oregon!

Hidden gem, middle of nowhere, on PCT

My goodness. Do not take road 42 coming to this place. Road 46 is much safer and a far more pleasant experience. Our trip in, on road 42, was 8+ miles of an extremely narrow, extremely potholey wreck of a logging road. Our trip out, on road 46, was really quite lovely. This place had minimal mosquitos, a great swimming lake (Head Lake) leas than half a mile from the 3 different campgrounds, and beautiful views of Mt Jefferson reflecting off the blue, blue Olallie Lake. Lots of fresh air, but definitely very dusty. Hot days, cold nights.
