On our way back from Eugene on Christmas Eve day 2011, Cary and I stopped at Shelter Cove Resort at Odell Lake to check it out.  It had been several years since we had stopped by.  Our company, La Pine Redi Mix, Inc. provided the concrete for the foundations of the lodge years ago, in the middle of December.

Ken and Trula Kieblock now own the resort, and have developed it into a destination point, in both winter and summer.  We met up with Ken, and here he is driving his cool rig. To learn all about the resort itself, please visit their website when you are all done here at Oregon Gifts, by "CLICKING HERE".

This foundation was poured around 16 years ago, next to the lodge.  Ken said that someday they will build sister lodge to Kokanee.

In January, I did a post about Trapper Creek, which is on the road to Shelter Cove.  To see that post with a lot of info about the area, please "CLICK HERE".

During the winter, there is a sledding area, cross country skiing and snowmobile trails.  Downhill skiing at Willamette Pass Resort is just across the highway.

During the summer, there is a campground at Trapper Creek, where you can fish and otherwise enjoy Odell Lake.  For more information on Odell Lake, here is the Wikipedia Link.

I hope that you enjoyed the tour!  We plan on going back this summer with our trailer and doing a bit of camping here.  It is a super place.

Yes, I enjoyed the tour. There is so much to see in your part of the country. I hope I make it out that far sometime. Until then, I'll just visit through your blog.

Some of your pictures look like postcards, Kathy. Beautiful.

What a beautiful place. I guess I didn't realize Oregon got so much snow.

Those cabins are adorable and loved, loved seeing the views and snow. Think this year that photos will be the only way I can experience it.
