This is a fairly small Campground with a lot of room to play and access to fly fishing in the shallow part of the river. It's pretty open and flat butt a great time can be had with family.
This is pretty well a dry camp area but great if you have bikes or dirt bikes or four wheelers. The lake is not breathtaking but pretty enough.
This is a well Run Campground albeit fairly wide open and not very foresty. There is a breakfast served on certain days of the week which is not too bad for a little cost as well as a stage for community entertainment such as karaoke.
The park is well run and equipped. It was very quiet in the evenings and a very short walk down to the lake where you can sit and relax. It is also a short distance from shopping and other supplies and some touristy stops.
I spent 5 days tent camping here in a trailer spot. It was never crowded and extremely enjoyable. They do have a lodge and a place you can rent boats. If you pick a fight right along the water you very likely to see Eagles and other Wildlife early in the morning. I highly recommend Diamond Lake!
The thing that makes this a nice Campground in the lake. However… because it is so close to a couple of small towns it does tend to attract a less well-behaved crowd. On two separate occasions staying there I had trouble with people being up very late in campgrounds making a lot of noise until well after midnight while other people are trying to sleep. And there was no particular enforcement of that rule. This is the kind of place you stay in the future when you need a place to camp but did not have time to plan well ahead.
I've been going to Lost Lake Campground now for 5 years. I usually stay in the cabins. There is a trail that circles the entire Lake which is fun to do once or twice a day. The lake itself is beautiful and clear to several feet down and you can see old growth trees that have fallen into the lake bed. The view of Mount Hood is incredible especially over a cup of coffee in the morning. There are lots of places to hang your hammock and sit by the lake and enjoy it. I highly recommend a trip to Lost Lake Resort. There is a small store comma and showers available for a low fee. You can't camp and also get one of the rooms in the lodge itself. I find that there are sufficient outhouses and I've never had a problem while staying there.
I love Whalen Island. You can kayak if you know the tidal pattern and the wildlife is amazing!
Great campground! The staff was friendly and delivers firewood to you. Clean facilities and the lake is a beaut!
I LOVE the private beach access, the hiking/walking trail, and very helpful camp hosts!
