Lake Creek is located east of Eagle Point on Hwy 140. It’s best to access this location from White City. Take Hwy 140 (Lake of the Woods Hwy) for 12.6 miles to Lake Creek Loop. Turn right and take the loop. This road is 2.5 miles long and offers plenty of opportunities to bird the creek and surrounding forest. Half way around the loop, the South Fork Little Butte Creek Road travels south and offers good birding for about a mile. After a mile, take Lake Creek Road for 3.5 miles to Lake Creek Reservoir. Just a quarter mile west of Lake Creek Reservoir is Bradshaw Reservoir #2. If you poke around a bit and work your way west from Bradshaw #2, you can find Nygren Reservoir and Bradshaw Reservoir #1. All of these look like they are very birdy but little information is available about them. We could use updated information if you travel to these sites.Directions

Lake Creek is most famous for a Brown Thrasher found in 2002. More recently, birds seen around this area include Barrow’s Goldeneye, Hooded Merganser, Eared Grebe, Western Bluebird, Gray Catbird (not to be expected), and Varied Thrush. This list will undoubtedly grow as others explore this promising birding site.
