Withers Lake Day Use Area


Located on Winter Rim 45 minutes west of Paisley, Oregon, Withers Lake is nestled in a shady mixed conifer setting. Withers Lake is actually a small irrigation reservoir that is populated by lots of hefty Brook trout, making it a popular destination for anglers.

The area around the lake is closed to both overnight camping and off-road vehicles to reduce erosion and protect vegetation and water quality.

Amenities at Withers Lake include picnic tables, fire rings, and one vault toilet. The parking area is an easy 50 meter walk from the lakeshore. Enjoy great fishing, bird watching, and picnicking at this peaceful and scenic lakeside setting.

Alert: There is no potable water.  Visitors need to bring an adequate supply of water.
