Crescent Lake lies within the Crescent Lake Junction, which is an unincorporated community in Klamath County. This area sits high in the beautiful and breathtaking Oregon Cascade Mountains. It is only 2 and half miles northeast of Crescent Lake, and two miles south of Odell Lake. It is an ideal place to get away to if you love the water. It was once a railroad town, bustling with activity, but now is much calmer. As of the year 2000, it had a population of only 122. The scenery in the area is worth the trip alone, with gorgeous views of magnificent mountains from every angle of the valley.
