CLEAR LAKE

August 28 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm

Diving the Clear Lake Abyss

Whether you’re from Oregon or traveling from further afield, Clear Lake is one dive site you’re bound to have heard of—a tropical turquoise gem within relatively easy access of Portland, Eugene, and Bend.

True to its name, Clear Lake is just that—clear, often with up to 100 feet of visibility, or so it feels. Diving in this lake is like diving in a giant swimming pool, with one caveat: it’s cold—a piercing 38 degrees Fahrenheit year-round. Glance up partway through a dive and you’re very likely to see a rowboat or a kayaker.

Although there are dozens of other clear, altitude lakes in Oregon, this one is special thanks in large part to its history.

About 3,000 years ago volcanic activity created the lake when a flow of lava redirected the river. Many of the trees that that were standing at this time can still be found today in the lake, beautifully preserved and still standing upright. These are some of the main points of interest

We will be camping at Coldwater Cove Campground.
