Lemolo Lake / Crater Lake North KOA Recreation

Lemolo Lake / Crater Lake North KOA Recreation

The Lemolo Lake/Crater Lake North KOA campground and cabins are located on Lemolo Lake - A 540-acre boating and fishing lake with beautiful views of Mount Thielsen and the surrounding hills. The lake is famous for its German Brown Trout fishing, but also has a large number of Kokenee Salmon and it is stocked multiple times throughout the year with Rainbow Trout.

Below are details for each of the Activities available on and immediately surrounding our KOA:

Hiking and Biking

Hiking and Biking

Bring your mountain bike or strap on your hiking shoes because there is plenty to see both at and around Lemolo Lake/Crater Lake North KOA, starting with a recently completed hiking, biking and horseback trail around the entire lake.   Hike or bike our trails and you may see some of the many different wildlife that call our forest home, including deer, elk, chipmunks, squirrels, loons, river otters, osprey, & bald eagles.  Many can be seen on and around our lake on a daily basis.  

Just North of our KOA is the North Umpqua Trail, a 79 mile hiking and mountain biking trail through the Umqua National Forest.  The "Dread & Terror" section of the trail runs along the North side of our lake.  The North Umpqua Trail (locally known as the NUT) is famous both nationally and internationally for both mountain biking and ultra running competitions.  Multiple races use Lemolo Lake/Crater Lake North as either the starting point or finish line for their races.
Additional detail about the trail can be found in the Local Area Attractions section of our website and a link to a website is also provided.

However, please note that during the early season (April 1 - May 15) and late season (September 15 - October 31) each year our lake level is lowered over a several week span by up to 25' for electrical power generation at our dam and for flood control purposes during snow melt.  During these times, not all boats may be available for rent because of decreased access to boat ramps and boat docks.  Please call to inquire about availability for your planned boating excursion any time of the operating season.
