Journey: Olive Lake

Olive Lake’s 160 acres of deep water offer a wide range of boating and fishing opportunties.

The North Fork John Day Ranger District opened part of Olive Lake Campground for day-use and overnight camping on July 1.

Day use areas that will be available include the boat launch and docks, the hiking trail around the lake and campsites 1-14, according to a press release. Crews are still working to clear hazard trees from campsites 6-10, so visitors may hear chainsaws and find downed trees in areas that are not yet open. Campsites 15-27 along the east access road will remain closed at this time.
