While many people from Oregon are well aware of the popular Crater Lake National Park, just north of it is an equally beautiful crystal clear lake. Diamond Lake is a natural lake along Route 138 in Umpqua National Forest. This pristine, clear lake has incredible views of both Mount Thielsen and Mount Bailey, making it feel like you’re engulfed in a natural oasis. There’s so much to explore and so much to do at Diamond Lake, and you can even spend the night at the large campground or resort right upon the lake. Next time you’re looking for somewhere new to explore during the summer in Oregon, head to Diamond Lake in Douglas County.
Have you ever been to Diamond Lake? Was the water crystal clear? Did you spend the night?
