Recreation Areas

Located along the Umpqua River, Roseburg is positioned as an ideal spot for recreational activities. Not only is it the gateway to Oregon’s only National Park, Crater Lake, but it’s also a must-experience destination for outdoor recreation lovers.  

Just east of Roseburg is the Umpqua National Forest, encompassing nearly one million acres of lush green vegetation. Here you’ll find what seems like an endless network of hiking trails - many of which lead to a beautiful waterfall. Discover mountain lakes like Diamond Lake or Lemolo Lake which offer plenty of summertime fun.

If you’re in the mood to climb a mountain, then consider Mt. Thielsen. It’s been referred to as the “Lightning Rod of the Cascades,” giving hikers a challenging climb with a beautiful view. Visiting on a hot day? The North Umpqua River is an ideal spot to cool off, hook a steelhead or spend the afternoon rafting down its turquoise waters.
