Things To Do

Overview

With downtown Lincoln City mere minutes away, you can glide quietly by canoe or kayak on the lake while you watch for coots, loons, ducks, cormorants, bald eagles, and grebes. As the only Oregon coast campground located in the midst of a city, the lake is a center of summertime activity. Boaters, skiers, swimmers, and personal watercraft users share the water. Kayak tours of the lake are scheduled in the summer (we provide the kayak). The nearby outlet mall, one of the largest in Oregon, is a short drive away. You'll find the campground on the west shore, and the East Devil's Lake day-use area just down the road.
