My husband and I took a week-long road trip to Oregon and this was one of the first places in the state that we visited. It is stunning! No matter what your level of physical fitness, you can enjoy the scenery of this natural beauty! The perimeter drive has many pull-offs for viewing the lake and several of them have tourist information boards to make you aware of special features. We went on a weekday in October so there wasn't a ton of traffic, but there was still a fair bit of people around. Be sure to bring a camera and perhaps binoculars. Though it was the start of October, there was a definite chill in the air and the wind was strong. My husband and I were wearing sweatshirts, jeans, heavy socks, and scarves and we were comfortable. We drove the entire perimeter and pulled into nearly every observation point to take in the view, walk around, and take photos, so the full drive took us 2 1/2 hours at a VERY leisurely pace. The little village was closed when we were there, so if you are visiting in the off-season be sure to pack any snacks or other items you might need and fill your gas tank before you start your trip here. It didn't seem like there were any stores or gas stations anywhere nearby. If you are going to visit Oregon, be sure to put this on the top of your "to do" list! You will be glad you did!
