This lake is like walking into a postcard. The towering evergreens surrounding the lake will make you feel so small. The serenity will leave you feeling stress free and the clean air and sparkling water is why this area is a must see!

We camped out near the lake and the sunset was breathtakingly beautiful. By far one of the nicest places we have traveled. It stayed mild temperature wise the entire time.

Nestled among the firs and cedars, within the city limits of Anacortes, lies this little-known gem. Recently a wild fire damaged some of the forest surrounding the lake, but don't let that deter you from enjoying the peaceful trail leading up to Cranberry Lake.
