Climate - The climate in Oregon varies greatly by region. The coastal region and the regions west of the Cascade Range are generally temperate and wet. Temperatures in the western portion of the state rarely rise above 85 degrees F during the warmest months and rarely dip below freezing during the winter. The Cascades receive high amounts of precipitation throughout the year. Conditions become more extreme the higher you climb. During the winter months, expect very heavy snow and cold temperatures. During the summer months be prepared for afternoon thunderstorms and chilly evening temperatures. Snow may be encountered on high country trails throughout the summer months.

Location - Dorena Lake is in the foothills of the Cascade Mountains. From Cottage Grove, 6 miles E on Row River Road.
