Lake County is located in the high desert south central region of Oregon. It is named for the lakes found within its boundaries, including Lake Abert, Hart Lake Reservoir, and Goose Lake. While it is among the largest Oregon counties in land area, it is thinly populated with less than 8000 residents. The seat is Lakeview.
Lake County is home to several frontier towns and homesteads. There are many large cattle ranches and timber holdings (both public and private) in the high desert area, as well as lakes and striking geological features. The economy in Lake County is reliant on lumber, agriculture, natural resource extraction, a prison, and government. The area is generally divided between the communities around Lakeview in the south and North Lake County including several small communities and a number of geological features.
Birding is big here from from small songbirds to large raptors, from ducks to cranes, especially at the Warner Wetlands, Summer Lake Wildlife Area and Goose Lake. Lake County is also known as "Oregon's Outback".
