Crescent Lake Guard Station

Overview

The Crescent Lake Guard Station, built in the early 1930s, is a one bedroom, one bath cabin on the eastern shore of Crescent Lake, managed by the Crescent Ranger District, Deschutes National Forest.

Natural Features:

Crescent Lake is in the Deschutes National Forest in a naturally glaciated basin behind a moraine dam and lays just east of the summit of the Cascade Mountain Range in northern Klamath County. It is a popular recreation lake in a setting of wooded shorelines, sandy beaches and brilliant blue-green water. The Guard Station sits atop a small hill overlooking Crescent Lake in an open ponderosa stand.

Recreation:

A boat launch is nearby, and Crescent Lake Resort is within walking distance and offers a number of services including food, fishing supplies and boat rentals.

Facilities:

The Guard Station is approximately 670 square feet with a full kitchen, a furnished living room that includes a couch (folds out to full bed), an original buffet, a desk and a newly installed gas “wood stove” heater. The kitchen includes a fridge, stove and sink. The bedroom has a full bed, and the restroom has a claw foot tub, a toilet and a pedestal sink. Outside amenities include a picnic table, a fire grill and a horseshoe pit.

Nearby Attractions:

This area is a typical Oregon summer recreation area which features Crescent Lake, Odell Lake, Waldo Lake and Gold Lake. The Diamond Peak Wilderness trail can be accessed nearby.
