It is one of the most beautiful places to go fishing ever. You can rent a boat at the marina or bring your own. You will catch some big fish and have some great memories.

Lake and drive noteworthy with Falls along the way. Lodge had a cute little restaurant with good food. Nice place for a day trip. Lots of hiking areas that are easy looking for the different Falls.

This lake has a rich history of being a great trout lake. Had a rough few years but is now coming back strong. This lake is surrounded by some of the best scenery that Oregon has to offer. Plan ahead for this trip as it is somewhat remote by todays standard. Definitely worth visiting.

This was our 3rd or 4th visit to Diamond Lake and again, we are always taken aback by the beauty of the region. This, however, was our first time during winter in the snow. Breathtaking! If it gets too cold, just go inside the lodge, sit by the fire and enjoy a nice Stout. This should be on everyone's bucket... More

We've enjoyed going to Diamond Lake. We have stayed at the resort overnight. We have gone boating and fishing. There are places by the lake for picnics. Diamond Lake is close to Crater Lake National Park.

A group I ride motorcycle has annual trips to Crater Lake where we take other bikers that have never been there and we always take the whole group to Diamond Lake for lunch. Good food and very friendly.
