Lost Creek Lake is an impoundment of the Upper Rogue River, on the Crater Lake Highway northeast of Shady Cove. Its idyllic location in a heavily wooded canyon makes it a cool and scenic summer retreat, one that’s enjoyed by waterskiers, kayakers and anglers alike. Those hoping to wet a line will find rainbow trout, smallmouth bass and landlocked chinook salmon. Thirty miles of shoreline provide many sheltered spots for whiling away a lazy afternoon; pedal and aqua boats are available for rent for those seeking a leisurely tour.

Eleven miles of trails wind around the lake, making it easy for hikers and bikers to encounter the wildlife that call the woods home. Just downstream of the Lost Creek Dam is the Cole M. Rivers Hatchery, where spring chinook, coho, summer steelhead and winter steelhead are reared.
