Finding a good camping spot in Oregon can be a little stressful. Competition for reserving the prime spots is fierce, and if you’re not online the minute reservations open, you’re often out of luck.
So that’s the reason why our family went camping at Lost Lake on the last weekend in September. It isn’t the smartest thing to do considering Oregon’s weather patterns, but it’s all that was available, and I really wanted to experience this place I’ve heard so much about. But through some kind of miracle, we completely lucked out on the weather. It was sunny and in the high 70s all weekend. Lost Lake is, indeed, a beautiful place. Next year I plan to join the reservation stampede to make sure we can get a spot in the middle of summer.
