The lake was discovered in 1870 when Captain Oliver Applegate was surveying a new military road to Fort Klamath. In 1871 his group built the first cabin, and in the late 1800s and early 1900s travelers to Crater Lake camped along the lakeshore. The resort was built in the early 1920’s and the first Forest-Service permit was issued for its operation in 1925.

The Fort Klamath Crooked Creek hatchery raises trophy trout that are two-year-olds and can reach from to 16-18 inches long. There are two restaurants on the property; The Lakehouse Lodge Restaurant where they just finished a kitchen renovation that makes it far more efficient. “We serve one of the best fishand chips-dishes I’ve ever tasted and we do a breakfast buffet every Saturday and Sunday and an evening barbecue buffet on Saturday with a band playing and bar service on the patio that draws up to 200-300 people.” Though fish-and-chips are a favorite, they serve prime rib on Friday night, Saturday is band and barbecue, and on Sunday night they prepare a spaghetti buffet to keep the menu more affordable. There is also a pizza parlor and grill down by the lake so guests can call in their orders and pick up their food when they come off the lake. So all in all, Lake of the Woods truly does have something for everybody. Please go to their Website for more information.
