Resort Frequentley Asked Questions

FAQ – FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS – LAKE OF THE WOODS RESORT

Q – What is the best way to reach you?

A – We have a toll-free number (1-866-201-4194), but in our peak season we can be difficult to reach because we are super busy with guests. The best way to learn more about the resort is to visit our website: https://lakeofthewoodsresort.com/

Q – Do you have internet and TV service?

A – Yes we do have wi-fi at the picnic area and at the Marina, but many visitors love having their family offline for a while. We do have cell phone coverage (Verizon) and some people use their mobile hot spot to connect. We have satellite TV in our main lodge (bar area) and in our Marina Restaurant, but there is no over-the-air TV reception.

Q – How can we find out about the weather, for example, is it smoky?

A – We recommend using an online weather update for Lake of the Woods, Oregon using your smartphone, computer or tablet. We like Accuweather.com but there are numerous online sources. Here’s the link to AccuWeather. & NOAA Weather in Medford Oregon Pinpoint Forecast for Lake of the Woods

As for smoke, regrettably, forest fires are part of life in Oregon forests areas. Usually, there is far less smoke in the mountains than in the valleys surrounding us (Klamath Falls and the Rogue Valley). Smoke is wind driven, so if the wind shifts, the smoke shifts. We try and post Facebook updates, but again, it is best to check an online weather resource. Here is a link to our new Live feed Camera located at the Lake of the Woods Marina.

Q – Is there a fee for visiting the area?

Yes, most recreational areas in Oregon have daily user fees to cover basic maintenance of public areas. Our day use fee is $8.00 and it has been in place for several years. Regular customers can get discounted passes (in the store) and at times (during the off season) the fee is not strictly enforced. We charge everyone coming through the gate, regardless of the reason for the visit (even if you are just having a meal at one of our restaurants).

Q – Do you have public restrooms?

Yes. In the summer we add extra facilities around the BBQ and beach areas, plus we have restrooms in the main lodge. We provide soap in the shower room-restroom (for RV guests) and in bathrooms in the main lodge. Nearby Forest Service bathrooms in camping areas and Rainbow Bay are rustic in nature and soap is not typically supplied. We do offer hand sanitizer in our store and sell soap also.

Q – Are campfires allowed?

Yes, but only in designated campground, cabin, and RV areas. Seldom are campfires in our facilities banned; it has not happened in 20 years. We just ask people to be super responsible and to make sure your fire is out when you leave the area. Our partner, the U.S. Forest Service, is ultimately responsible for fire restrictions, so it is always important to check with us to see if campfires are permitted.

Q – How much does it cost to camp?

A – Camping is allowed in two campgrounds near the lodge, Aspen and Sunset. Rates are $23 per night, and there is a two-week maximum stay. We also have RV spots adjacent to our cabins. We also manage camping at Four Mile Lake. The entrance to Four Mile Lake is just a few minutes away off Hwy 140. However, the drive up to the lake from Hwy 140 is a long gravel road that can take 20-30 minutes, since you really can’t go faster than 20 miles an hour safely.

Q – Do you need reservations for camping?

A – No, but it is highly recommended. You can check availability and make a reservation through Recreation.gov or by calling toll free 1-877-444-6777. We are especially busy this summer due to a couple other area lakes being low on water due to drought conditions and maintenance.

Q – What type of cabins do you have?

A – We offer two basic types of cabins. Our vintage cabins (built in the 20s and 30s) have been lovingly restored and have some of the best views of the lake. Some of the smaller ones don’t offer you all the modern amenities (like microwaves). Our newer cabins are all park model wood cabins that still maintain the charm of cabin living, but offer modern conveniences.

We strongly recommend that you read the full description of each cabin in our online reservation system before booking, so you know exactly what you can expect in the cabin you select. Rates range from $109 (off season) to several hundred dollars a night for our larger cabins in summer. Our cabins are available to rent year-round!

Q – What food is available at the resort?

A – Great food! The Lake House in our main lodge is a full-service restaurant featuring breakfast, lunch, and dinner. It also offers a variety of daily specials and weekend and holiday buffets. Here’s a link to the menu. https://lakeofthewoodsresort.com/the-lake-house-restaurant/ We also have a pizzeria at the Marina, feature daily soup and sandwich specials, and cold beer to go with that slice. Our summer outdoor BBQ on Saturdays (4 pm) has a fixed menu (it is no longer all you can eat).

Q – What is going on at the lake?

A – We have a super active summer schedule of fun events – BBQs, music, outdoor movies, entertainment. The best way to plan your fun is to visit our calendar of events on our website. Here’s a link. https://lakeofthewoodsresort.com/calendar-of-events/

Q – Are you pet friendly?

A – Yes, pet with well-behaved owners are welcome, but you need to clean up after your pets immediately. We actually supply the waste bags and disposal containers. There are areas where pets are not allowed, like our swimming areas. We also do not allow pets in dining areas like in the outdoor BBQ area in the summer, but there is a pet friendly section on our patio. Please note signage where pets are not welcome.
