The high elevation of Scott Lake Campground (highest on the McKenzie River Ranger District) gives the area a mountainous feel.
A forest of subalpine fir, mountain hemlock, and bear grass surround the lake and make a picturesque setting for stunning views of the Three Sisters on clear days.
Be prepared for heavy mosquitoes in July and August.
