This is definitely one of those Sunday afternoon rambles with the kids, with an opportunity to catch up on some Oregon pioneer history along the way. Winter’s really the only time to see Fish Lake anyway, since in the summer the darned thing often dries up completely. But in late winter it’s a lovely 1-mile-long lake that you can certainly loop around. If you’re going to make this a stop on a trip between Bend and Eugene be sure to get a look at the old cabins and structures that date back well into the nineteenth century.
