Diamond Lake Resort has evolved from a small fishing lodge built in the 1920s, to a modern family resort that offers year-round service. It is a favorite summer spot for fishing (rainbow trout), hiking, bicycling, and horseback riding. In the winter it is famous for skiing, snowboarding and tubing, snowmobiling, and snowshoeing. All year round it is a wonderful place to take in the beauty of nature and of Crater Lake National Park.

So glad we found this place
Every one of the people we had contact with acted like they had an investment in the success of this resort. They were friendly, attentive, and helpful. This is a beautiful area. We chose it because it was convenient to Crater Lake. We were only staying one night. I can see why people would choose to stay several nights. There are all sorts of water activities. It was enjoyable to just sit by the water. The food was delicious and reasonably priced. The rooms were nothing fancy but clean and comfortable.
Great staff and lower end rooms.
The staff at the resort were great but the rooms do suffer a bit. No phones in the rooms, No wifi on site and very spotty cell service. They have a fridge with a small freezer in the rooms. The walls are very thin and could hear everything in the next room. Room was cleaned but are dated for sure. There is a tv in the room but dont open the doors because of the bugs outside. Close drive to crater lake which is a must see.
Bugs and more Bugs!
I read the reviews ahead of time but my husband stayed here when he was a boy with his family and wanted to relive some memories. Driving in to the resort the lake and mountains were breathtaking! Unfortunately the bugs were so bad we couldn’t enjoy sitting by the lake or walking around. The studio was in need of a better bed but mostly clean accommodations until I opened the windows. Old rotten dirty bugs and massive amounts of the midge flies. I cleaned them myself. We left the next morning because I couldn’t take all the swarming midge flies.
Beautiful Gem in the Cascades
Don't listen to the people that come here looking for 5 star Accommodations in the Cascades. This resort is all about the beautiful sights and the amazing outdoor sporting things available to you. The cabins and motel units are clean and old. If you don't like old go somewhere else. My family and friends have been coming here for close to 60 years. We have had and will continue to have amazing times here at Diamond Lake. The restaurants are old but have great views and have good food. The Diamond Lounge is warm and fun with ancient decor and excellent cocktails and great service. The fishing in Diamond lake is amazing in spring and fall and summer fly fishing is fantastic. The fish grow fast and are legendary. The average Rainbow Trout is 12-13 inches. Many are bigger and the boats at the resort are comfortable and reasonably priced. I am not even going to mention the other fishing and hiking options available other than Crater Lake National park is 13 miles away. North Umpqua River down Hwy 138 is amazing too! This is a 5 star resort. I love it here.
Noisy room/friendly staff/x-c skiing
I stayed in a second floor room in the motel. The only amenity in the room was a TV, no refrigerator or microwave. When two families moved into adjoining rooms the noise was unbelievable through the walls. Luckily they calmed down after 10 pm. Staff was very friendly. Lots of noise from snowmobiles jamming around the buildings. Try to book a cabin and not a room.
