Recreation

Diamond Lake

From thundering waterfalls to still mountain lakes, water is the essence of the Umpqua National Forest. Low numbers of visitors on the Umpqua offer you solitude and the chance for self-discovery.

You'll find many places to be alone with nature -- to fill your senses and renew your spirit. You can create an adventure for a day or a week, all year long.

Choose an activity on the left to find specific recreation sites for a variety of activities! If you know the site you want to know more about, try the "Areas & Activities" option to the right.
