Central Oregon Coast - Siltcoos Lake

Take a peek at my favorite place to be!


Part of our Oregon vacation was spent at Ada Resort on Siltcoos Lake.  We have stayed at Ada for the last 25 years!  Long time, isn't it?  We started going there when the girls were little.  We love to fish, crab, hike, explore, and discovery nature.  When the girls were little we stayed in one of the cabins.  We now have a trailer, for the two of us, that we leave at the lake all year. 

It is cool at the lake and a great place to escape from the heat.  In the morning the lake is calm...like glass, and there may be a bit of fog. 

Just before noon the wind kicks up and the lake can sometimes have a bit of a chop. 

In the afternoon we take the 25 minute trip to town for groceries or to go crabbing.  I like the scenic route.

It is worth staying on the backside of the lake when one can enjoy this kind of scenery.

It is Wednesday, time to share by participating in Outdoor Wednesday hosted by Susan at A Southern Daydreamer.  Take a few minutes and visit her today!

  6. Now, this is my idea of a vacation....give me this anytime rather than the beach with all the people.
    You're so lucky to have this nearby.
