From Pendleton, take Hwy 11 North and east for 20 miles. Turn east on Hwy 204 just north of Weston. Travel another 20 miles to the small community of Tollgate. Go 0.7 miles past the Tollgate store and look for the entry to Woodward Campground (US Forest Service) on the lake (it’s on your right). If the gate is closed, park here and walk down to the lake.

Woodward Campground is the only public land around the Langdon Lake. The north, east, and south sides of the lake are private lands and generally closed to the public – signed No Trespassing.
