Lake Crescent was definitely one of the highlights of our Olympic National park visit. As a keen photographer, it was a little problematic to get good photos because there are very few pullouts to park and get out of the car, but we still managed...More

Because the 101 was blocked, we had the good fortune to see this gorgeous lake twice. Warning: it is VERY difficult to set aside the camera here.

This 600 foot deep lake is surrounded by mountains and trees growing out of rocks. Just know - the water stays a stay 44 degrees year round, so if you're looking to swim, look elsewhere. But if you're looking for breathtaking, humbling nature, check it...More

Crescent Lake is stunningly beautiful. We drove the length four times and never got tired of the clear water, the mountains on the far side and the golden trees amidst the dark evergreens.

Been wanting to see this place for myself. Not disappointed at all. Was there on a sunny day, so we could see all the different hues of blue water. The Lodge is quite worth the walk through if not staying overnight there. Go!

The Lake is awesome and it's colour is relly gorgeous. There's a small path where's heading to the marymere falls. And don't forget to pass for a drink at the crescent lake lodge. Their lemonade is awesome.

Drives along the lake are fabulous with many vistas of the lake's deep blue waters surrounded by the green tree-covered mountains. Lots of nearby waterfalls and hiking trails.

I know Crescent Lake is gorgeous water. There are also a few good hikes here. The Storm King Trail is very strenuous. My friend and I hiked hard and fast for 45 minutes and didn't reach the top. Since we didn't make it I can't...More

Hello, When we were at Crescent Lake we did not stay at the hotel/motel or have an RV. I would call them to find out if there is space. June could be busy and you may not have the spot. Hope this helps. Safe travels!
