Mondeaux Dam Recreation Area

The Mondeaux Dam and Flowage were built in the 1930s. In succeeding years, the 400-acre recreation area developed in the surrounding northern hardwood forest. It quickly became one of the best birding opportunities in the region. Plenty of easy access.

Directions: From Medford travel north 15.5 miles on Hwy 13, west on Cty D 6.5 miles, then south 1 mile on FR 104 (Mondeaux Dr.) to the entrance of the recreation area. Park in the paved parking lot.
