Overview

Set back from the shore in lodgepole pine forest at the south end of Diamond Lake, Broken Arrow Campground is a quiet retreat for family and large group camping excursions in Umpqua National Forest.

This picturesque spot boasts spectacular views of both Mount Bailey and Mount Thielsen and offers visitors fantastic recreational opportunities.

Natural Features:

Explosive geologic events have shaped the distinctive landscape on the 984,602-acre Umpqua National Forest, and the area provides spectacular scenery as well as an abundance of natural and cultural resources.

The translation of the word, "umpqua," meaning "thundering waters," defines the area. High mountain lakes, heart-stopping rapids, peaceful ponds and thundering waterfalls, including the 272-foot Watson Falls on the North Umpqua Highway, are available to visitors.

Several designated wilderness areas provide undisturbed solitude. Encompassing 19,100 acres, Boulder Creek Wilderness is an incredible landscape, with dense old growth forests and steep terrain that tower above Boulder Creek.

The most popular area in Boulder Creek is Pine Bench. This flat area overlooking Boulder Creek is home to a grove of old growth Ponderosa pines.

Diverse ecosystems support a wide range of habitat for wildlife common to the area. From eagles and owls, to salamanders and salmon, these species, along with many others, depend on surrounding undeveloped wilderness, clean streams, and diverse forests to live.

Recreation:

Broken Arrow Group Campground offers outdoor enthusiasts the opportunity to hike, fish, swim, bike and enjoy a long list of outdoor recreational activities throughout the year.

With a backdrop of forested shoreline and mountain peaks, anglers may cast a line into adjacent Diamond Lake to reel in rainbow trout.

Swimming, kayaking, and picnicking along the shore are wonderful ways to spend a warm afternoon along the waterfront as well.

Bicyclists will enjoy riding on the 11-mile paved trail around the lake, while hikers can head out for the day on one of many trails leaving from the area.

Interpretive programs are offered on Saturday evenings at nearby Diamond Lake Campground.

Facilities:

This large campground has over 100 sites, including group and standard sites, able to accommodate tents, RVs and trailers.

Sites are equipped with picnic tables, campfire rings, grills, drinking water and flush toilets. Several boat ramps provide access to the lake.

Campground hosts are on site to answer questions, and a nearby resort offers bicycle, boat, and horse rentals as well as lodging, a restaurant, grocery store, laundry facilities and fuel.

Nearby Attractions:

Visitors enjoy the North Cascades and Mt. Rainer National Parks, where interpretive programs and exhibits offer education about the diverse landscape and history of the area.

The Pacific Crest Trail (PCT), one of the world's premier National Scenic Trails, showcases some of North America's most fantastic scenery, winding its way its way from Mexico to Canada through California, Oregon and Washington, and is accessible near the campground.
