Fish Lake Campground
Fish Lake Campground is 20 miles south of Orleans in the Six Rivers National Forest. The small community of Weitchpec is 12 miles to the south on Highway 96. The campground is in a mixed hardwood and conifer forest with many fir and Port-Orford-Cedar trees. Fish Lake offers good sport for bluegill, trout, and bass from boats. A boat ramp is available in the campground. Only non-motorized boats are permitted on the tiny lake. Aquatic vegetation limits shoreline fishing. Around the lake is a network of 5 miles of pleasant hiking trails, some connecting to other lakes in the area.
Port-Orford-cedar root disease may cause the campground to close at times, so it is wise to check ahead. The effort is to limit the spread of disease spores in the wet soil. The most common times are rainy periods from October through May.
Fish Lake Campground has 24 shaded campsites for tents and small RVs and trailers. Campsites are arranged in several loops near the lake's shore. Many sites can be reserved while others are first-come, first-served.

In order to prevent the spread of invasive insects, obtain firewood locally.
