Burma Pond ~ Wolf Creek, Oregon

Camping in Southern Oregon: 

Burma Pond is located approximately 8 miles from the community of Wolf Creek. The 4.5 acre pond offers fishing for rainbow trout (stocked) and small mouth bass. Only non-motorized boats are allowed and a hiking trail encircles Burma Pond. Dispersed camping and wildlife viewing are also popular activities in the area. Upgrades to Burma Pond will soon be taking place that will include improvements to the dam, installation of a vault toilet, and designating camping sites. 

From Grants Pass, Oregon : Take I-5, exit 76. Turn left, proceed under freeway. Turn right on Old Highway 99 S and go through the community of Wolf Creek. Continue going straight on Frontage Rd. until intersection of Speaker Rd. Turn right and drive east on Speaker Road for four miles to BLM road 33-5-10 (begins gravel road). Follow this road approximately three miles more. Turn right on 33-5-15.2. Follow this road approximately one-half mile until it dead ends at Burma Pond and a parking area. 

Caution: Due to the steepness of the 33-5-15.2 road (the last .5 mile to the site), four wheel drive is recommended.
