Paddleboard Lake Marie at the Umpqua Lighthouse State Park

Winchester Bay, Oregon

Description

Added by Josiah Roe

Serenity amongst tower trees and the faint sounds of the distance ocean.

The Umpqua State Lighthouse is an emerald gem of Oregon Coastal perfection: dense forest intermingled with lakes and streams spill out onto a massive dune system that plays gatekeeper to the Umpqua River as it empties into the roaring Pacific Ocean. 

Lake Marie sits nestled in the heart of the park and is a perfect place for a sunrise paddleboard sessions. Don't forget to book a campsite or yurt.

To get to Lake Marie head south out of Reedsport for 5 miles before turning right onto Lighthouse Road. The road will continue down past the entrance to the campsite. Before the road makes a right the trail to the lake is on the left. There is parking near the lighthouse.
