Duffy Lake

From Oregon Hikers Field Guide

Duffy Butte and Duffy Lake (Cheryl Hill)


Duffy Lake is a popular destination in the Mt. Jefferson Wilderness for both day hikers and backpackers. If you are camping here remember that campfires must be at least 100 feet away from the lake (although by late summer campfires may be banned entirely if conditions are dry enough; be sure to check before your trip). The Forest Service asks that you only camp in designated campsites (although they do not provide a map or tell you how many such sites there are.) Make sure to properly secure your food. Gray jays and golden-mantled ground squirrels are common here and will steal your food. The lake is very popular with both day hikers and backpackers. Help minimize your impact by sticking to established trails and packing out all trash.
