Diamond Lake

Diamond Lake has tons of year-round activities for the adventurous traveler.  

During the summer months, Diamond Lake is a popular spot to land a rainbow trout or go hiking or mountain biking on one of the many trails around the lake. If you prefer to spend your days on the water, Diamond Lake Resort has several types of boat rentals such as fishing boats, patio boats, and (for the youngsters or young at heart) paddle and bumper boats!

The winters at Diamond Lake offer just as much excitement as the summers. Since 2013 the lake has offered ice fishing during the winter months. It’s a great spot in Douglas County to go snowboarding, tubing, snowmobiling, snowshoeing, and skiing (both backcountry downhill and cross-county). Mt. Bailey, just a few miles from Diamond Lake offers up a dream scenario for advanced skiers and boarders looking for a unique, backcountry adventure. Cat Ski Mt. Bailey shuttles a maximum of 12 skiers or boarders per day up the mountain to enjoy the freshest powder imaginable.

Diamond Lake is a wonderful place to take in the surrounding natural beauty of the Umpqua National Forest, Mt. Thielsen, and is a great stop on the way to Crater Lake National Park. To find Diamond Lake, head east of Roseburg along Highway 138 for about 76 miles.

Due to recent fire activity, some trails and recreation areas are not accessible. Please travel safely along North Umpqua Highway corridor. Large portions of North Umpqua and Diamond Lake Ranger Districts of the Umpqua National Forest are reopened to the public. Due to active fire and fire suppression activities, sections of the North Umpqua and Diamond Lake Districts will remain under a fire closure order.
