One of the best reasons to arrange a stay at Lake Crescent Lodge is the easy access to this lovely beach.  Located on the west side of Barnes Point, this beach enjoys some shelter from prevailing winds while giving up nothing in terms of views. Lake Crescent's deep blue waters stretch out for miles, inviting exploration. Thankfully, canoe and kayak rentals are available, and the pier leaving the beach is a great spot for a launch.

While you certainly won't be alone at the Lake Crescent Lodge Beach, the area is large enough to support the crowds without an issue. Visitors can use the many amenities of Lake Crescent Lodge, which helps if you are planning an entire day on Barns Point. The shallow waters on around this beach make the spot a great choice for families with young children as well. If you can stay late and the weather cooperates, be sure to watch the stars reflected on the surface of the lake as your lakeside campfire burns beside you. On a calm summer night, the Lake Crescent Lodge Beach is hard to beat.

Note: Call the lodge at 888.896.3818 or 360.928.3211 to inquire about boat rental availability and pricing.
