Overview

Overview

Squaw Lakes Campground is nestled in the deep shade of a mixed-conifer forest on the banks of Squaw and Little Squaw Lakes. The facility provides tent-only campsites that are reachable via foot trails. The unique, remote setting offers visitors stunning scenery and access to a multitude of recreational opportunities.

Natural Features:

The Rogue River-Siskiyou National Forest is composed of two distinct geological provinces: the Cascade Range and the Siskiyou Mountains. The Cascade Range is dominated by snow-capped volcanic peaks such as 9,495 foot Mt. McLoughlin within the Sky Lakes Wilderness. The Siskiyou area embodies world-class rivers, remarkable fisheries and the most complex and treasured plant communities in the Pacific Northwest.

Diverse landscapes provide habitat for a wide-range of wildlife, from spotted owls and elk to salamanders and sandhill cranes.

Recreation:

Hiking and fishing top the list of recreational opportunities at Squaw Lakes Campground. Two mountain lakes, a river and a handful of hiking trails are accessible from the campground.

Anglers enjoy the remote location and scenic backdrop of two natural lakes, providing excellent fishing opportunities for coldwater and warmwater species. Squaw Lake, larger than its sister, sustains rainbow and cutthroat trout, yellow perch, brown bullhead and black bass. Little Squaw Lake provides a rare fishery for 8-11" wild, native coastal cutthroat trout. A 0.25-mile hiking trail connects the lakes. Motors are not permitted on the lakes.

From the campground, Little Squaw Trail is a 1-mile interpretive hike that provides visitors with many opportunities for picnicking and swimming. The 2-mile Summit Lake Trail travels through a mixed conifer forest and small water crossings.

Facilities:

Squaw Lakes Campground contains 17 individual sites and two group sites, all of which are designated for tent camping only and are reachable by walking on foot trails to the sites. Vehicles must be parked outside the gate area, and all personal belongings must be carried into the camping areas.

Picnic tables, campfire rings, vault toilets are provided. Drinking water is provided via a hand-pump, located near site # 2. Most sites are located at the water's edge.
