“outstanding views and lakeside camping”

Bump up four miles of teeth-rattling gravel road and you’ll be rewarded with a little slice of heaven known as Takhlakh Lake. Sure, the amenities are meager (no showers or running water), but sipping your morning cuppa while gazing across a pristine lake toward towering Mount Adams makes even pit toilets tolerable. The lake’s remote location sets the serenity bar in the stratosphere (no gas-powered boats allowed!). There’s hiking nearby, and the little trail that rings the lake is a treat, too. Bring a kayak or a raft and plan on whiling away a day afloat. The fishing can be great here, especially early or very late in the season. Book this one early for next year (the location often sells out in February). Bonus points if you can nab Site 36 or one of the other lakeside locations; in heavy snowpack years, reserve for late in summer—the campground’s opening is sometimes delayed by snow melt.    A very popular campground with a loop and a tent-only spur, close to the shore of the lake. Campground also includes ten walk-in sites. The views across the lake of Mt. Adams are outstanding. At least four miles of gravel road to campground.
