Lemolo Lake / Crater Lake North KOA Holiday 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
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.
If you don't necessarily want to fish, but want to play on the water or experience the beauty of Lemolo Lake and the surrounding Mountains from the water, a kayak is a great way to explore our lake.
Kayaks (single person) - $12.50 per hour.
