Clear Lake

#1 - Clear Lake

Oregon, USA West

Extremely clear fresh water altitude dive. Old forest preserved underwater. Good facilities, including camping, cabins, store, boat rentals and cafe. No motorized craft are allowed on the lake. At an elevation of 3100 feet, this is considered an altitude dive. The water is approximately 43 degrees on average year round at the surface. A few feet below the surface the water can get to near freezing temps. The visibility can reach over 100 feet in parts of the lake. Nothing in the way of biology, but a great dive if you have a dry suit. Take highway 126 from Eugene, OR toward Sisters, OR. 18 miles northeast of McKenzie Bridge. From McKenzie Bridge, travel east on Hwy 126 to Coldwater Cove Campground. Plenty of places to park, and easy access to the water. Approx 3 miles south of 20/126 interchange on east side of road.
