Fish Lake Campground is a remote and picturesque site in the midst of old growth forest adjacent to Fish Lake, offering some of the best fishing in the area. A boat launch for Fish Lake (10 mph) is within the campground and many amenities are offered at nearby Fish Lake Resort.
Fish Lake Campground offers outstanding fishing, swimming and hiking. Kayaking, canoeing, paddle boarding and boat access (10 mph) are available from the boat ramp. Numerous hiking trails are within easy access, including the Fish Lake, High Lakes, Brown Mountain, and the famous Pacific Crest Trail, as well as the Sky Lakes Wilderness and Mount McLoughlin Trail system. Many biking trails exist, including back-country and county highways.
This large campground contains quiet and secluded campsites to accommodate groups, families and individuals. Many sites are large enough to accommodate RVs and trailers but cannot accommodate RV hookups at this time. Drinking water and flush toilets with wash basins are provided, as well as a fish cleaning station, picnic tables and grills. Firewood is available for purchase at the Campground Host Site.
Visitors will enjoy easy access to Fish Lake and Willow Lake to the north. Beautiful Fish Lake is supplied by over 45 underground volcanic streams.
Additional campgrounds nearby include adjacent Doe Point and North Fork Campgrounds, Whiskey Springs and Fourbit Ford Campgrounds; all several miles away off OR-821. Groceries and a hot meal are close by in Butte Falls, or within walking distance at the Fish Lake Resort.
ADA Access: N
It’s $25 a night with a $8 fee for reserving online. It’s a smallish campsite walking distance to the lake
Pros: Beautiful area Weather wasn’t too hot, plenty of shade Beautiful lake Resort next door that has a small restaurant and kayak rentals Has flush toilets Great hiking trails
Cons: Bathrooms are old, infested with spiders, grime covered. Toilet and sink was cleanish tho. The only clean bathroom was in the Day Use area. Was night and day difference. Bugs. Lots of bugs. Right by a busy road. You’ll hear traffic constantly throughout the day.
Resort next door has some janky showers and sort of friendly staff. We ate there the before leaving, chicken sandwich and fish and chips. Chicken sandwich 👌🏻 fish and chips were saturated with oil. They were heavy and wet. I tried to just eat the fish to avoid all the oil, but even the fish was oily. Even after pressing and bathing the fillet in many many napkins. My stomach regrets to inform you I still tried to eat it (and didn’t tell the server, she looked like she was having a rough day). Starting feeling sick about an hour later. 🤦🏻♀️ just watch what you order I guess.
