I've been going to Olallie Lake for about 25 years now, and consider it my heaven. I've hiked into most all the lakes in the area and have had a few bear encounters. I'm familiar with what fish are in what lakes and how to catch and release them.
I have hundreds of high quality photos of the Olallie area, including the infamous Olallie Lake otter family corraling and catching big rainbow trout.
In 2009 I saw an oppurtunity to take over the forestry service lease of the resort, and I peddled like mad to get it done, but in the end the current new owners beat me to it.
I'd still like to see a non-profit started... "Friends of Olallie Lake", where the public could participate and encourage outside donations to faciliate upgrades at the resort.
You'll know I'm up there when at sunset you hear echoing across the lake...." Goodnight Archie"!!.
