Lake Crescent
Olympic National Park
Port Angeles, Washington 98362
Voice: 360-565-3130

One of the most beautiful areas of the Olympic National Park is Lake Crescent. This large lake, which lies in the extreme northern park of the park not far south of the Strait of Juan de Fuca, is 600 feet deep in places and was formed by the action of Pleistocene glacier.

The name says it. This curved, deep, freshwater lake is surrounded by high mountains, including 4,534-foot Storm King Mountain. At ten miles long and 624 feet deep, the highly scenic lake is attractive to swimmers as well as anglers hoping to land their share of its plentiful trout.

Boating is especially good in Lake Crescent. Visitors can rent paddleboats, rowboats, and canoes at the Log Cabin Resort.

You can get to Lake Crescent from U.S. Route 101, 17 miles west of Port Angeles.
