This area is Open

Lost Lake Campground is adjacent to Highway 20 near the summit of Santiam Pass.  The rustic campground is located on the west shore of shallow Lost Lake. The water level of the lake fluctuates seasonally and is quite low in summer with water loving willows crowding the marshy shallows of the lake. 

This is a popular spot during fishing and hunting seasons.
