Elk Lake has a picturesque setting, with the Three Sisters towering over the north end of the lake and Mt. Bachelor dominating the eastern horizon. It is not a nutrient rich lake and is so transparent you can see the bottom clearly from any location on the surface.
This site has a primitive (gravel) boat ramp, a shallow beach perfect for families, picnic tables and a toilet.
There is a 10 mph speed limit for motorboats.
