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

Came to Port Angeles to visit friends for the weekend, they showed me all around. Crescent Lake was absolutely beautiful. Definitely worth adding to your list of sightseeing activities.

You'll enjoy your photos and memories of this picturesque lake just a short distance outside of Port Angeles. Whether you stay at the pleasant lodge along its shores, take a hike in the woods, or simply stop at one of the pullouts to take photos...More

We were lucky to be there on a weekend. On weekdays there are roadworks going on with some delays. There are a few turnouts along the Hwy 101 W with beautiful views. We also followed the Moments in Time Trail through old growth forest with...More

The lake is Swiss Alps beautiful. But getting there can be dicey. Not because any sane driver can follow the speed limit and not accelerate and brake every 100 feet at the next curve or the humorously frequent speed limit changes - but because the...More

My wife and I wanted to get a view of Crescent Lake and debated two peaks that border the lake. We decided to hike Pyramid Peak trail, just off the public north dock. My wife and I read a trail book for day hikes, and...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!
