Opal Lake Campground is located approximately 42 miles southeast of Oakridge at an elevation of 5,400 feet. This campground has 1 site with a table and a fire ring. Toilets are available but there is no potable water.

This single unit campground located in a beautiful alpine setting on the edge of Opal Lake is ideal for campers wanting solitude. The campsite is in a forest of silver, grand and noble fir. Huckleberries are abundant giving visitors a quick snack in the fall. The lake is easily accessible by a short trail. The mosquito population is very thick in July and August.
