Small, shallow clear lake. We see Bald Eagles circling every time we go. They must have a nest nearby. You have to climb 1500ft from Bend and then down a gravel road and sparse parking so go early. South end of the lake has a spur that veers left and goes down a narrow channel. Take it. We don't fish... 更多
This is my favorite lake to kayak or paddle board on. The lake is large, so even though there tends to be a lot of people, once you are on the water, you can find your own litle nook to hang out in and eat lunch.
Hosmer Lake is very popular with the kayak loving folks. It is quiet and serene and beautiful and well worth spending some time there. The best part is you don't have to drive for miles and miles to get there.
Spent a sunny afternoon kayaking on this lake. The views of the mountains, the clear water--nature is good. It can get quite crowded during the summer months. Took the narrow path up to the small waterfall and bridge and was able to pull off to eat. It is dog friendly (if your dog digs water and likes to be paddled... 更多
This is one of the most perfect lakes in Central Oregon for a peaceful day out on the water. This lake is surrounded by marshy areas and also little fingers to travel down. After paddling through what could be described as a marshy canal the lake opens up into a beautiful expanse. There are spots which are easy to pull... 更多
This was a great outing for our group. It was a nice drive, but it was the destination that made it worthwhile. Photo opportunities in all directions and a great trail that walks along the lake and past giant boulders and through the trees. Next time we will bring a kayak, this would be a great way to explore the... 更多
A shallow and interesting lake to paddle by kayak, canoe or SUP. A large marshy area to pass near often has many red wing and yellow wing blackbirds. Trout can be easily seen in the shallow water. One large open area, and the whole lake, is fed by Quinn Creek, It is possible to paddle up the creek to a... 更多
We love to canoe and fish at Hosmer lake. We go there at least one or two times a month through the summer to paddle and fish. For the water adventure enthusiast, any sort of paddle board, kayak, pontoon boat, etc. will work on the lake. We like to paddle all the way up to Quinn Creek on the north... 更多
This lake is super busy before 4pm so if you want a quiet trip to the waterfall (which is well worth it) wait till late afternoon to put your board or boat in the water. Clear clear lake, lots of fish and wildlife. Beautiful views.
Great Lake except people were talking on cell phones in speaker mode. Nobody used there library voices, voice carried across the lake. Tired of hearing about diets, recipes, who is mad at who, gossip gossip, gossip...enough! A wonderful place to enjoy some of the most beautiful scenery that Central Oregon has to offer and we were surrounded by people who... 更多
