Fish Awhile... Swim Awhile... Rest Awhile

Fishing - Mercer Lake is open year round, and is home to some of the best rainbow trout fishing around. The ODFW stocks the lake several times each spring, and the trout can grow to trophy size. In addition, largemouth bass have been taken in excess of 9 pounds! For the kids, the yellow perch and bluegill fishing is just the ticket. Bring your own boat, or rent one of our fishing boats. Bait, basic tackle, and fishing licenses are available at our 'corner store'. There is a covered fish-cleaning area on the grounds with a freezer to store your catch. Map of Mercer Lake

Swimming - The water in Mercer Lake is cool and refreshing during the summer months, and crisp and invigorating at other times (darn cold, mostly). The lake averages 30 feet deep, with summer water temperatures around 70 degrees. The resort has a private, sandy beach that slopes gently into the water. The dock system provides a protected swimming area for our guests, and swimming outside of this area is discouraged as a safety precaution.

Resting - Whatever floats your boat! Which reminds me...

Boating - With over 340 acres there's plenty of room to cruise. Drop anchor in one of the many coves and enjoy the sunshine. You can rent one of our fishing boats, or there is a boat ramp and moorage available for a fee if you'd like to bring your own boat.
