About Fremont-Winema National Forest

Any Cheryl Strayed/Reese Witherspoon fans in the house? Retrace their Wild footsteps in the Fremont-Winema National Forest; part of the 2,650 mile Pacific Crest Trail falls along the forest’s western edge. And the forest certainly is “wild”: the 2.3 million acres of lush green forests and alpine meadows shelter elk, antelope, bobcats, and bears--plus intrepid adventure seekers, like yourself! In the summer, try hiking or biking along the Crane Trail, which offers incredible views of the surrounding mountains and valleys. And don’t fret when the weather turns cold and snowy; Fremont-Winema turns into a winter wonderland! Strap on ski goggles and coast downhill, or rev it up on a snowmobile at the Quartz Mountain Sno-park. Back at camp, warm up with a cup of hot cocoa--with extra marshmallows, thank you very much--and start planning for your next day in Oregon paradise.

I ended up here based on the recommendation from the Ranger in Lakeview that this campground would not disappoint! He was right! It is in a delightful, remote location at a bit of elevation -- perfect for stargazing and peaceful quiet. Each campsite is HUGE - tons of space. Mine had a private meadow. The forest is expansive -- you can easily find trails to wander on (some created by the cows at pasture). There's a trailhead with official paths ~4 miles from the park entry (2-3 miles away from the camp ground). There's a vault toilet -- which frankly was one of the nicest toilets I'd seen in a park!

Notably this campground is only maintained from June 1 - October 15 -- however, I camped there on October 18th. It was cold...

Camping at Fourmile Lake was awesome. We drove a few miles in on a dirt road from hwy 140. The lake was peaceful and private, with just a few fisherfolk on the shore and in small boats. The sites are right on the lake, maybe 100 ft to the water. We stayed in site #11 for one night after Labor Day. There were a number of other campers, but the sites are far enough away from each other to feel unaccompanied. The water was warm enough to swim on a hot day. There are plenty of pit toilets, surprisingly well kept.

History of Fremont-Winema National Forest

The Fremont National Forest was established in 1908 and was named for Captain John C. Fremont, the Pathfinder, who was sent to explore this country in 1843. The forest, on a high plateau and containing over one million acres is located in Lake and Klamath Counties in south-central Oregon on the extreme eastern part of the Cascade Mountains.

The Winema National Forest was established in 1961 and was named for a heroine of the Modoc War of 1872 - Woman of the Brave Heart. More than 50 percent of the Forest is comprised of former Klamath Indian Reservation land. Two purchases by the Federal Government - the first in 1963 of about 500,000 acres and the second in 1973 of about 135,000 acres - were combined with portions of three other National Forests to form the Winema National Forest.

Members of the Klamath Tribe reserve specific rights of hunting, fishing trapping, and gathering of forest materials on former reservation land. This forms a unique relationship between Klamath Tribe and the Forest for the management of portions of the Forest.
