: Climate on the Umpqua changes with elevation. The area receives a high amount of precipitation. Much of the precipitation comes from October to April in the form of rain at the low elevations and as wet heavy snow in the higher elevations. Although snow is possible in the lowest elevations, it is infrequent. Much of the Umpqua National Forest is at the 3000-4000 foot elevation and averages about 60 inches of rain per year. Late spring, summer and early autumn tend to bring clear, sunny days with moderate temperatures.
Location: The Diamond Lake Recreation Area is located in the eastern portion of the Umpqua National Forest, just east of the Mount Thielsen Wilderness, and can be accessed from Highways 138 and 230, and Roads 4795 and 6562.
