Carty Lake

From Oregon Hikers Field Guide

View over Carty Lake from the Port entrance, Ridgefield NWR (bobcat)


Carty Lake is in the south part of the Carty Unit of the Ridgefield National Wildife Refuge. The lake borders on Port of Ridgefield property. A seasonal trail runs down the west shore of the lake, but wintering waterfowl may be observed from the Port of Ridgefield.

The lake is named after James Carty, an early settler who built a log cabin near where the Cathlapotle Plankhouse now stands in 1839.
