Orr Lake & Campground

Orr Lake & Campground

Orr Lake is a popular fishing area with a beautiful view of Mt Shasta. The lake is the home of trout, bass, and catfish. A scenic trail along the east edge of the lake provides access to several fishing jetties and connects the 4 campsites on the east side of the lake with the 4 double sites on the north end of the lake. A boat ramp on the east shore and a hand-launch boat ramp on the north end also provide access to the lake. 

The lake is between Highway 97 and Tennant. 

Boating (no motors over 12 hp), swimming, picnicking, camping, and fishing are allowed.  Check with Goosenest Ranger Station for facilities status at: 530-398-4391. The Lake has limited cattail vegetation but abundant water lilies, open marsh, ponderosa pine, riparian willows and aspen.  Check with Goosenest Ranger District for current conditions.  

This area is dog friendly, but dogs must remain on a leash.
