Cool! That one's on my bucket list. I have put it on my calendar, in the [as-yet-unknown] event that I can attend. I notice that the reservations are already full for the lodge area, and the nearby camping is first-come, first-served.


Yeah, your best bet is probably one of the campgrounds a short drive away, like Lost Lake. If you get there early Friday you'd have a decent chance at finding a camp site. Thursday even better. Scope all your options out in that area ahead of time in case your first pick is full.

I also live in Portland and am looking for a dive buddy. South Puget sound and hood canal is convenient when driving from Portland. PM me and maybe we can work out a buddy dive. Ben

The Oregon Scuba Club is doing a club dive at Clear Lake, Oregon, in September. The water is cold there year-round, like 40˚, but the viz is simply stunning. It may even be clearer than Crater Lake. And there is no arduous hike involved. The club meets monthly in SW Portland at a Roundtable Pizza. Nice group of folks. You don't have to be a member to attend a meeting. I'm in Portland and might be interested in hooking up for a dive or two somewhere this summer. I'm mostly interested in getting in some practice with my new UW camera system, which for a buddy isn't everyone's cup of tea though. PM me if you're interested.

- I would imagine that there would be a large amount of involuntary gagging
- I don't know about you but I'm not into swallowing it

Hi rentalcoot! Welcome to the board.

Maybe try to join some the gang here in Hood Canal, that might be the best/easiest diving from Portland.

Can you still dive Crater Lake? I thought they closed it for diving. If you can, I'll go with you.
