Run by the Forest Service

This campground is next to the Lemolo Lake KOA where we were staying. We did a drive through one day. We didn't stay in this campground.

The sites looked amazing. If you could score one on the lake it would be awesome. The other sites are tucked in the woods. Some more private than others. You…

Cheap site but no hookups for RV. Water is avail throughout the place but you better have a water bandit as there are no threads on the spigots. Tons, I mean TONS of mosquitoes. Major blue green algae blooms going on in the water, so it's not even safe for your dogs kids or old folks. Hard pass…

About This Campground

Poole Creek Campground is nestled in a forest of lodgepole pine, mountain hemlock and Shasta red fir, just south of the mouth of Poole Creek on the west shore of Lemolo Lake. The lake is 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 60 standard sites, all sites are reservation only. Reservations must be made two days in advance. There is also one reservable group site. Sites are equipped with picnic tables, campfire rings and grills. Vault toilets and drinking water are provided. 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 Experience 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. ADA Access: N
