Climate - Climate in this region varies with elevation and from east to west. The western portions of this region experience higher precipitation and more moderate temperatures year-round. The eastern end of this region is much more arid, with warmer summer temperatures and colder winter temperatures. The higher elevations receive abundant winter snowfall which stays on the ground until early summer in the high mountains.
Goose Lake State Recreation Area is located off U.S. Highway 395, 14 miles south of Lakeview on the northeast shore of Goose Lake, straddling the Oregon-California border.
