Location

From Roseburg take Hwy 138 east to MP72.9. L on FR 2610 (Basket Butte Road). Go 4.0 miles to the Poole Creek campground and boat launch and another 0.8 miles to the dam. Both areas are good for scoping the lake.  FR2610,2612 and 2614 (paved roads) circle the lake with numerous pulloffs and campgrounds.  On the east end, the North Umpqua River enters the lake and is bordered by a marshy riparian area. East of the lake,FR 2612 road parallels the river for a couple miles passing springs. Going north on the 700 road takes you up Kelsay Mountain to an old fire area. You can either loop around on this road to road 60 (Windgo Pass Road) or connect with the 60 road at east end of the 2614 road. The 60 road will give you access to the higher mountain species up near the pass.
