Hemlock Meadow Boat Ramp Campground
In Oregon, a bicycle is legally considered a vehicle, and the same Oregon road laws apply. Please “be seen” and practice safe riding. Vehicle traffic, farm equipment and narrow shoulders exist on many Oregon roads, and you may find that construction projects, traffic or other events may cause road conditions or signage to differ from the map results, ride descriptions and directions. For travel options plus weather and road conditions, visit tripcheck.com, call 511 (in Oregon only), 800.977.6368 or 503.588.2941. Routes listed on this website are for informational purposes and intended as a reference guide only.
Hemlock Lake, a 28 acre man-made reservoir, is 33 feet at its deepest point and boating is allowed but NO MOTORS. Scenic hiking trails in the area include a one-mile loop around Hemlock Lake and the five mile Yellow Jacket Loop Trail #1522 which connects with a one mile side trail (#1516) to Flat Rock Mt. (used years ago as an emergency lookout). Yellow Jacket Loop Trail passes through high elevation timber and alpine meadows abundant with wildflowers in the spring.
Facilities include Picnic sites with picnic grills, vault toilets, fireplaces and garbage containers.
