Default Non motorized lakes?

Jennie mail:

We are looking for a lake in Oregon we can camp on and fish in,
that doesn't allow motorized boats. We have a large family
reunion camping trip every summer, and this year we have lots of
little ones, so our usual camping spot on the McKenzie is out
(too dangerous for toddlers). The reason we are looking for a
non-motorized lake is because I HATE being awakened at 5am by
screaming boat motors, and annoying jet skiers. Can you or any
of your readers help? I have exhausted the resources through
state and federal agencies, they have sent me their pamphlets on
Oregon Boating, which hasn't offered much help. Do you have any
ideas? THANK YOU SO MUCH from a large family of native
Oregonians.

Blue Lake is a private resort, I understand.

Try Clear Lake on the Santiam Pass (actually just down the McKensie highway close to the summit).

Olallie lake gets my vote too! Good fishing and good camping. Also up the gravel road a few more miles is Horseshoe Lake, extremly quiet and also a planted lake. Olallie has three campgrounds, all of the sites are first come fisrt serve sites. Camp Ten has 10 campsites, Pennisula Campground has 40+ sites and then there is the one on the east side of the lake (name escapes me) with several sites as well. At these lakes you will need to bring your own water for cooking and drinking. Only the campground on the east side of Olallie lake has water available. Hope this helps some.

I agree with Crabbait. If you are already familar with the MacKensie area. Clear lake would be a great choice. Nice campgrounds and a beautiful lake. Row boats are also available for rental also....
Crabbait is also correct, Blue lake is a private resort owned by the Asembly of God church. I used to dive,camp and fish there when I was a kid. About 10 years ago, I tried to take my kids there only to find a gate with a guard :whazzup: needless to say I was a little irked to find a piece of my childhood locked up...

This is from "The Nugget News", Sister's newspaper. It was printed in April of 1996.

Quote:
Blue Lake Resort purchased, goes private
By Jim Cornelius
Blue Lake Resort 20 miles west of Sisters has been purchased and is closed to the public as of April 2.

Portland advertising executive Dan Wieden and his wife acquired Lake Shore Development, which owns and operates the resort, for $800,000. Assessor's maps indicate that the lake itself was not part of the transaction, but the new owners have ended public access.

Blue Lake Resort formerly offered lodging, canoeing, fishing and horseback rides. The new owners advertised that they plan to open a camp for children at the site emphasizing arts and crafts, writing, photography, performance art and environmental learning.

Wieden did not return phone calls from The Nugget.

According to a report in the Bend Bulletin, prior owners Ken and Ruth Lovegren are retaining their home on the site and over 100 acres of land where their children plan to build homes.

The Alpine Restaurant, located near Blue Lake, will open as scheduled April 27.

Thanks for the update Tag, I wonder where the Asembly of God was mixed up in that. I remember the sign clearly....maybe the art camp was church affiliated somehow?
Sorry to highjack the thread...

If you dont mind the drive my vote would be for Clear lake as well....relly nice place and very peaceful.

They have boats and cabbins to rent out to folks who dont have their own boats but db's are perfect for up there and its well stocked with trout so any young ones will have fun but it is too cold to swim in. :shocked:

My 2 cents.

I haven't heard anybody mention laurence lake located a few miles south of parkdale. great for float tubes or row boats.
keep in mind that it is flies or art. lures only and not very many campsites but is only an 1 1/2 hour from the pdx area

South Twin lake out of Bend used to be motor free if I am remembering right. On Century Drive. Also there is Waldo Lake. They do allow motors but I have never been bothered by them. Nice camp grounds one of the purest lakes in the world and one of the prettiest places in the state. Great hiking as well.

I love Olallie, but it gets really crouded there.

I second Kiya. Mostly because I live in parkdale( oh yeah!) but also they just stocked it not to long ago and the fish are hitting trolled spinners like theirs no tommorrow! Examine the fish you catch though, because laurance has a population of native bull trout that must be released immediatley. They have some signs and picture sofr identification. The lake is about 5-10 minutes from McIsaacs, the local store, but can very windy at times. Chech the weather carefully before you go or all your fishing will be restricted the north end of the lake. Also the campgrounds are all right, with one kaibo for the entire place, buy I have never seen more than maybe 10-15 on or at the entire lake at once. Have fun, Be safe, and catch some fish!

2) Upside is that it is flyfishing only!

i noticed your use of the term "KOIBO", You must have spent some summers at Camp Pioneer, Boy Scout Camp? That was the term for the out houses there . I have never heard it used anywhere else.
