Pacific Crest Trail

Elk Lake Resort is located southwest of Bend Oregon and approximately one mile from the Pacific Crest Trail.


Elk Lake Resort is an ideal stopover for PCT hikers and we look forward to their return each summer. We strive to create an enjoyable place to visit. We continue to improve the resort, cabins and campgrounds each year to better accommodate the increased number of hikers. We look forward to your visit.


In the summer months, our hours of operation are as follows;
Monday thru Thursday 11 a.m. to 7 p.m.
Friday 11 a.m. to 9 p.m.
Saturday 9 to 9 p.m.
Sunday 9 to 7 p.m.


Our store offers a variety of snacks, medical supplies, and camping items. Our restaurant has been a big hit with the hikers this summer. We give you the opportunity to sit in the lodge and recharge your energy, as well as the energy for your electronic items.


Camping Cabins are very popular with hikers. There are no amenities in the cabins except a propane lantern and heater, bed downstairs, loft, and two out of the three cabins have twin bunks. These are $70 per night. We also have a 16 space private campground with spaces ranging from $10.00 per night for just a tent to $35.00 for larger RV site per night. We offer hot showers with bathroom facilities for $5. This includes towel and soap.


The campground is busy in the summer months, campground reservations can be made by calling the lodge at 541.480.7378. Walk-in rates are available to hikers subject to availability.


Drop shipping packages: We accept UPS packages only at the resort. Pls DO NOT send via US Postal Service as we do not have mail service at the resort. We recommend making the package critter proof (mouse/chipmunk) so try using a hard plastic tote or similar packaging.
