Lake Crescent was carved by glaciers and gleams with pristine, blue-green water. There are several turnouts for enjoying views and picnics. Among the many trails here is the .9-mile one way hike through old-growth forest to the 90-foot-high Marymere Falls. Amenities around the lake include swimming at East Beach, boat rentals, and fishing for two particular species of rainbow trout (Beardslee) and coastal cutthroat (Crescenti) that are only found here. Stay overnight at Lake Crescent Lodge, Log Cabin Resort, or camping.
