About Lost Lake
The Lost Lake area offers a medium sized lake with scenic views, forested mountains, abundant wildlife, and a few hiking trails. The surrounding area has clean streams and diverse forests that support an abundance of wildlife, including deer, porcupine, black bear, cougar, native fish, common loon, bald eagles, and migratory birds. Endangered and threatened species, including gray wolves and Canada lynx, also find havens in nearby ecosystems. Lost Lake offers outdoor enthusiasts the opportunity to hike, fish, and enjoy a long list of outdoor recreational activities. Anglers enjoy boat fishing (with an electric motor only) for rainbow and triploid eastern brook. A boat ramp is available in the campground.

In January 2010, Okanogan Highlands Alliance responded to an extraordinary opportunity, purchasing 38 acres of wetland and 27 acres of adjacent forestland on the south end of Lost Lake. The Lost Lake property, with its abundant plant and wildlife, will be restored where necessary and preserved in perpetuity.
