Campground Fourmile Lake Campground is located at the foot of spectacular Mt. McLoughlin and on the shores of beautiful Fourmile Lake. Travel 35 miles northwest of Klamath Falls on Highway 140 to Road 3661 then six miles north to the lake. This site is operated by a concessionaire. The area offers camping, boating, fishing, picnicking, and hiking. It is a great starting point for your exploration of Sky Lakes Wilderness and Mt. McLoughlin. Amenities include hand pumped water, vault toilets, and some corrals. There is a fee for use of the area. Sites are available on a first-come, first-served basis. From the trailhead at an elevation of 5,700 feet, the Badger Lake Trail branches off to the left (south) from the Twin Ponds Trail, and circles to the southeast, crossing Forest Road 3661 just before it enters the campground, and parallels the southeastern boundary of the campground. The trail then joins the Rye Spur Trail; turn left (north) and follow the Rye Spur Trail across the footbridge over the canal. Turn right and follow the roadway along the canal for a very short distance to where the Badger Lake Trail branches off to the left, up the embankment. The trail then heads to the north, winding along the eastern shore of Fourmile Lake, offering great views of Mount McLoughlin to the west. After climbing a small hill, the trail winds between thickly forested slopes, past Woodpecker, Badger, and Long Lakes, before joining the Pacific Crest Trail at a distance of 5.2 miles from the Fourmile Lake Campground. Turning left and traveling southward on the Pacific Crest Trail to the Twin Ponds Trail, and back to the Fourmile Lake Campground makes for an adventurous day trip. Please practice minimum impact visitation.
