Kangaroo Lake Campground

Kangaroo Lake Campground is about 14 miles (as the crow flies) west of Weed and Interstate 5 in the Klamath National Forest. Twenty-five-acre Kangaroo Lake is a popular spot for boating and fishing. Motorized boats are not allowed on the lake. Many facilities at the campground and lake are accessible for those in wheelchairs.

Kangaroo Lake Campground is set back among the trees, about a 5 minute walk from the water's edge. A paved wheelchair-accessible path to the lake makes for easy access. The campground has 13 campsites for RVs, trailers, and tents and another 5 walk-in campsites.
