Spring 2018, there is road construction on the way up tot Crescent Lake. Call the lodge specific number for an update on when the road is open and the length of any delay.

Even though there was construction going on and the roadway would periodically be closed we decided to not worry about travel time and stopped to enjoy the view. We unpacked a picnic lunch and just enjoyed the view and the quiet.

This is something to see if you are in the park. The drive to the lake is incredible and there are several places to pull over and get out to enjoy the scenery. Time stops when you're here.

Hello, When we were at Crescent Lake we did not stay at the hotel/motel or have an RV. I would call them to find out if there is space. June could be busy and you may not have the spot. Hope this helps. Safe travels!

I'm not sure. I haven't camped there before. You could reach them by calling the park and finding out through their Park Rangers or the Lake Crescent Lodge staff.
