Welcome to Langdon Lake
Langdon Lake is located in the beautiful Tollgate, Oregon mountain area.
: Smile Smile Smile
Unusually Cold at the Lake
Take note that we are having untypically cold temperatures in November at the lake. We have had at least 2 nights where the mercury dipped into the negative digits. With only 3 inches of snow on the ground, this could be an issue for anything in (or under) your cabin that holds water including pipes, toilets, pea-traps, etc.

At this writing I have heard of 2 cabins having leaks and/or broken plumbing.

If you did not winterize your cabin beforehand, you should probably try to inspect it as soon as possible. Initially check for water pressure at the faucet closest to your main supply line. If no pressure, you may need to place some source of heat in your crawl space to thaw out the plumbing. After pipes are thawed, go back and listen for breaks or look for spraying water in the crawl space. I have mentioned this before: it only takes one cabin with a sufficient leak to drain the entire water system.

For any help or suggestions feel free to call me.

Fish Arrival/ Huckleberry Trail
Over 1200 rainbow trout will be arriving at the lake this Thursday (6/11) They will all be in the 8-10 inch range and looking for something to eat. Bring your poles up this weekend, the fishing should be great! Top spots on the lake for catching fish are usually by the dam, off of the boat launch dock, and down in the spillway of Lookingglass Creek.

Bringing your hiking shoes as well: Tollgate Historical Society's "Huckleberry Trail" is slowly being rebuilt. There is a sizeable section now open for hikers and horseback riders. Enjoy the scenery as you make your way through the newly thinned forest area. Start of the trail is located on the dirt road just past the horse corrals. Look for the "Huckleberry Trail" sign and a small rock cairn.

Spring-time Vehicle Access
The ducks have arrived back at the lake and turkeys can be heard in the surrounding woods. Conditions are finally starting to change to a warmer climate.

At this writing, access for vehicles to cabins is limited. Call me for details to see if your cabin is ready for driving in. I expect that things will change dramatically in this next week as we are suppose to see sunny skies and above 50 degrees for many days in a row.

Same with the lake...we are right at the fringe of seeing open water. Just a few hot days will accomplish this. Bring your fishing pole the next time you come...I'm sure the hold-over fish are good and hungry!

Let me know if I can answer any other questions

Theft at lake 3/29/14
On the South side of the lake, a cabin was broken into. Estimated date of break in was likely Wednesday night (3/26) Items stolen were a Phillips 40" flat screen TV, Stihl 034 chainsaw, and an unpackaged Harbor Freight tool set. Point of entry was on the back side of the cabin with the door being bashed in by means of a sledge hammer or axe. Tracks showed that this person(s) was on foot.

Umatiila Sherriff's Dept. was notified of the incident. They arrived onsite in a timely manner and performed a thorough investigation including evidence of fingerprints taken and to be checked at their lab. They advised that there has been a recent increase of breakins/thefts in the Tollgate area all within the last 5 days. They do have a few suspects of interest living within the area. Close watch of who is coming in and out of the Lake Community is key to preventing this from happening again. They requested that they notify them of anyone or anything out of the ordinary. Also to call the Sherriff's Dept. immediatley if another breakin occurs, and do not enter the cabin until complete evidence has been gathered from the scene.

I have since made a close security check of the remaining cabins. All cabins are secure and no tracks noticed around them.

Please notify me with any information or any questions.
