Waters of Timothy Lake

One of the most prominent features of Timothy Lake are the stumps. The lake was created when the Timothy Lake Dam was built in 1956 to regulate the waters of the Oak Grove Fork Clackamas River. The remains of the long ago forest can still be seen in the clear waters along the banks.
