Olallie Lake Resort originated in 1932. It is a remote high mountain rustic resort located in the Mt. Hood National Forest with an amazing view of Mt. Jefferson. Today, the resort still feels like the 1930?s with a small general store, wooden rowboats to rent and 10 cabins that have wood burning stoves, kerosene lanterns, outside water spigots and no cell phone or internet service. It is a place to relax and enjoy the magical surroundings of the Olallie Lake Scenic Area. We are open seasonally from June to October, depending on snowmelt.
Olallie Lake is stocked with rainbow trout yearly by the Oregon Dept. of Fish and Wildlife. Since the resort was established, Olallie Lake has been a no swimming, no motorized boats kind of lake. It is a favorite fishing spot for generations of families and new comers each summer. Within the Olallie Lake Scenic Area, we have 46 other lakes that are wonderful for swimming. Head Lake, located across the road from the resort, is where many cabin guests and campers like to swim.
In addition to fishing and swimming, many people visit the area to hike and camp. The Pacific Crest Trail is located within 1/10th of a mile from the resort and provides miles of beautiful hiking. There are also many other trails that range from easy to difficult. For camping, we have 7 forest service campgrounds in the area, three of which are located on Olallie Lake. All the campsites are primitive ? no running water, only pit toilets. Campsites rent on a first come first serve basis; no reservation needed.
Please be mindful of the remote location ? no gas, no internet, no electricity, no ATM and no cell phone coverage. Olallie Lake Scenic Area is just a beautiful, peaceful place to visit.
We look forward to having you visit this summer!
