Gordon Lakes are composed of two lakes, a lower lake and an upper lake. The stream fills the upper lake, down into the lower lake and continues into the South Santiam.

The Upper Lake is 7 acres in size and 14 feet deep at an elevation of 4,000 feet. The Lower Lake is 8 acres in size and 14 feet deep at an elevation of 3,900 feet. A short trail takes you down to the lake area for fishing or dispersed camping. There are trailheads at the parking area leading into Gordon Meadows/Lakes Trails.

Directions: From Sweet Home: Travel east to Forest Service Road 2044 to Forest Service Road 230. There is a large circle parking area a t the end of Road 230, perfect for horse trailers.

Seasonal Access: Typically open year-round. Snow generally blocks access along road 2044 around the 3,500 foot mark from November or December through April.

Facility Type: Lake
