The public lands we manage vary from the mixed conifer forests on the east slope of the Cascade Mountains to the beautiful high desert country of Oregon's Outback. The District is made up of two resource areas, the Klamath Falls Resource Area and the Lakeview Resource Area. The Lakeview District's boundary encompasses approximately 3.5 million acres of public land in Lake, Klamath, and part of Harney counties in south-central and southeastern Oregon.

Among the special areas that the Lakeview District manages are two impressive wetlands: the 51,000-acre Warner Wetlands in Lake County, and the 3,200-acre Wood River Wetlands in Klamath County. Both are stop-over points or nesting areas on the Pacific Flyway for millions of migrating waterfowl each year, making them favorite places of many bird watchers.

If you're an outdoors enthusiast, you will find numerous recreational opportunities on public lands in Lakeview's BLM District. You can get a thrill rafting the challenging whitewater of the Upper Klamath Wild and Scenic River or hang-gliding from one of the tall mountains east of Lakeview, or seek more serene pastimes such as fishing in lakes, rivers, and streams for trout or warm-water fish. Camping and boating are available at our developed recreational sites at Gerber and J.C. Boyle reservoirs. During public hunting seasons, hunters can find areas of solitude to stalk big-game species of antelope, mule deer, and elk and a variety of upland birds and waterfowl.
