About East Lemolo Campground

East Lemolo is on the banks of Lemolo Lake, the highest reservoir on the North Umpqua River at an elevation of 4,150 feet.

Recreation

Boating, fishing, swimming, kayaking, canoeing and water skiing top the list of recreational activities at the campground. Lemolo Lake provides outdoor enthusiasts with a multitude of recreational opportunities year round. The forested shoreline and mountainous backdrop provide a perfect setting for both swimmers braving the lake's cold, refreshing waters, and for anglers casting lines from boat or beach. Populations of German brown trout, Eastern brook trout, rainbow trout and kokanee salmon thrive in the lake which reaches depths of up to 100 feet in places. For waterfall seekers, nearby Lemolo Falls Trail is a steep traverse that drops down into North Umpqua Canyon for a view of Lemolo Falls as it cascades 150 feet to the canyon bottom. A spur trail accesses the bottom of the canyon below the falls.

Facilities

This campground has 15 standard sites, 8 are available on a first-come, first-served basis and 7 are reservable. Sites are equipped with picnic tables and campfire rings with grills. There is a vault toilet, but no drinking water is available.

Natural Features

Umpqua National Forest visitors are often taken aback by unique and surprising landscapes shaped by explosive geologic events. The 984,602-acre forest provides spectacular scenery and an abundance of natural and cultural resources. The translation of the word, "Umpqua," meaning "thundering waters," defines the area. High mountain lakes, heart-stopping rapids, peaceful ponds and thundering waterfalls, including the 272-foot Watson Falls on the North Umpqua Highway, offer visitors a renewed sense of spirit. Diverse ecosystems support a wide range of habitat for wildlife. From eagles and owls to salamanders and salmon, these species, along with many others, depend on surrounding undeveloped wilderness, clean streams and diverse forests to live.

Nearby Attractions

Access to hiking, mountain biking and OHV trails is within ten miles of the campground. For a scenic driving experience there are 172 miles of diverse river and mountain landscapes along the Rogue-Umpqua National Scenic Byway. Travel from rolling oak-covered hills and towering coniferous forests, to roaring whitewater rapids and ancient lava flows. The highway travels alongside the Upper Rogue and North Umpqua Wild and Scenic Rivers that contain world-class fisheries.

2 Reviews of East Lemolo Campground
Quiet wooded campground, walk to lake

We stayed on the southeast side of the lake, in a quiet campground. Lots of trees and wooded area. Only one other person in the campground. Spent the day at Crater Lake, but no camping, so this was nearby, and much more serene.

First to Review
East lemolo campground

We were there with a large group of people so it was loud. Not sure how would be on a normal night. It was not a bad place to stay but not my favorite. People were catching some nice fish. They have cabins I did not go into one so I'm not sure how they were. It is a good place to have large groups though.
