Please respect the outdoors by practicing Leave No Trace. Learn more about how to apply the principles of Leave No Trace on your next outdoor adventure here.

Clear mountain waters slowly flow from the small and shallow Clackamas Lake 2 miles to Timothy Lake, where they eventually become the Clackamas River.  Beyond its scenic appeal, this headwater plays a minor role as a recreation outlet for the adjacent Clackamas Lake Campground.  Anglers can expect small numbers of stocked brook, rainbow, cutthroat and German brown trout that make their way from neighboring Timothy Lake.  In early summer when waters are at their highest point, canoes and kayaks can make the passage from Clackamas Lake to Timothy Lake via the relatively deep brook that connects the two bodies of water, with two necessary portages - one over NF-42 and the other over NF-57.
