Willow Lake, Oregon (August 2023)

Willow Lake is just an hour from Ashland, not much farther than Lake of the Woods (which I’ve been to dozens of times over the years). And yet, I’d never heard of it until last week. I bounced the name off of a few friends who have also been in Ashland for over 20 years, and they hadn’t hear of it either. Did I just “out” a somewhat secret lake?

Should you find yourself wanting to visit this place, don’t put “Willow Lake” into Google Maps or you may get sent down the wrong road. Instead, use “Willow Lake County Park”.

Did you know that Grizzly Peak (elevation of 5,922 feet) once had a conical and relatable size to nearby volcano Mount McLoughlin (9,493 feet)?
