Lake Creek Shore

From Oregon Hikers Field Guide

The Lake Creek shore, Snag Boat Bend, where you might have to turn back (bobcat)


You'll reach the shore of Lake Creek here via the Turtle Loop in the Snag Boat Bend Unit of the William L. Finley National Wildlife Refuge. In winter and spring, you probably won't be able to make the whole loop because of high water levels, so this is where you turn back. Lake Creek is not really a creek but an oxbow lake that formed on an old meander of the Willamette River.
