Links:Trip Journals - 2/12/94, 4/29/04, 1/23/06
Notes:This lake, not named on any maps is located on the north edge of section 33, which for many years belonged to the Timber Service Company Inc. It is now a part of the Willamette National Forest. Close by is Chris Lake to the south-east. Clear-cutting around these lakes makes the area a great cross-country ski area in the winter.
I can't say that I would recomend this lake for fishing, based on the trips I have made there, inspite of the fact it is stocked annually.
Route:From Detroit continue on Highway 22, turning left on Big Meadows Rd #2267
