The Little Community With A Future
In The Heart Of The Cascades
Chemult is a small, friendly community located in scenic Central Oregon, on Highway 97N, just 30 miles from the north entrance to Crater Lake National Park. We find ourselves fortunate to live in such a magnificent outdoor recreation area.
Chemult is a convenient place to stay while you enjoy the variety of activities available year round. Amtrak stops here twice daily (headed north in the morning and south in the evening) and is a convenient and scenic way to travel to and from Chemult.
Chemult was founded in 1926 so in place of Chemult Mountain Days in 2016 our community will be hosting "90 Years of Memories" a celebration of the 90th anniversary of Chemult. Everyone is invited to join our Chemult family, July 15-16, 2016, for a special weekend of fun, food, and most importantly friendship & fellowship!
Please check "Chemult's 90TH Anniversary Celebration 2016" Facebook page for updates throughout the year. You can also click on "Chemult Mountain Days" on the side bar to the right (We haven't been able to access the side bar on the web program to change the name for some reason.)
The picture above is the first store and gas station in Chemult built by Cecile & Nellie Palmer in 1929. For more of the history of Chemult check out https://chemulhistoryoldies.wordpress.com/
The winters bring lots of snow to play in. Snowmobiling, cross country skiing, snowshoeing, and dog sledding can’t be beat on our freshly groomed trails which meander through the forests to Crater Lake National Park, Crescent-O’Dell Lakes, Diamond Lake, and our very own Miller Lake.
For more information on the upcoming 2017 Chemult dog sled races check out www.sleddogchemult.org.
Check out our Recreational Activities on the sidebar for snowmobiling information.
The summers bring us an abundance of sunshine in which to enjoy the wide variety of outdoor recreational opportunities such as hiking, biking, bird watching, camping, boating, fishing, hunting, & exploring the Volcanic Legacy lands which surround us. Our closest campground, Digit Point, is located on beautiful Miller Lake just 12 miles west of Chemult. For more info about Digit Point see http://www.forestcamping.com/dow/pacficnw/wininfo.htm
