Camp at Lost Lake

Camp at Lost Lake

Whether you’re looking for a day hike or scenic camping, Lost Lake offers the perfect escape and awe inspiring views of Mt. Hood.

It is no secret to my family and friends that I enjoy spending my time outdoors. Only someone with a passion for the outdoors would begin a 2,000+ mile endeavor through 14 states. Prior to beginning my thru-hike I made it a point to test my gear and my endurance, at least that was my intention during first visit to Lost Lake. This trail starts at the south end of Lost Lake at Lakeshore Trail #656 and heads south to the Pacific Crest Trail #2000. After spending too much time around the campground, I decided to skip the shakedown hike and take a leisurely walk around the 3 mile loop around the trail and past various campsites. 

Lost lake offers 148 campsites all of which are available on a first come, first serve basis unless reserved through Reserve America.

In addition to camping and hiking trails, Lost Lake Campground offers:

  • General Store
  • Kayaking
  • Fishing
  • Stand Up Paddling
