Crescent Lake and Marymere Falls were both beautiful to visit. The lake's clear blue water was stunning and we always enjoy waterfalls.

Didn't realize just how big this lake was. It goes on for miles and miles along the 101 highway. There are several places that you can pull over and take pictures. Would love to visit when the sun is shining.

I first came here in 1976 and was flabbergasted by its beauty. 40 years later and I am still in awe of the beautiful lake.

Passed Crescent Lake multiple times on our visit to Olympic. Each time we seemed to enjoy the morning light, a light rain shower, rainbows, wildlife, and some simply some awesome scenery. Don't forget Marymere falls while you are in the vicinity.

We only got to see Crescent Lake from US 101, but we pulled over to several of the View Points to take pictures. The lake is HUGE, very very blue, and outstanding to look at!

The crescent lake is worth a stop along the drive from port angeles. The lake is 12 miles long. Beautiful sight. Relax, have a picnic, go fishing or hike to see Marymere waterfalls. Our family enjoyed the clear day walking by the lake.
