Anthony Lake forms the source of Anthony Creek, named for William ‘Doc’ Anthony, an ambitious homesteader who came to Baker County in 1864. He was a farmer and a doctor, collected tolls on the Dealy Wagon Road for a time, and ran his ranch until he died in 1914 at age 85. Anthony Lake Guard Station is a historic Civilian Conservation Corps log cabin built in the 1930s – one of only a few Forest Service cabins built of logs.

Guests at Anthony Lake Guard Station will find many modern comforts to help make their stay enjoyable. It’s located at a popular recreation area and adjacent to the Anthony Lake Campground, and is easily accessible by car.


A boat ramp is located on the lake. Activities include boating, canoeing and kayaking. Anglers can fly fish for trout. Trails in the area include the 22.6-mile Elkhorn Crest (foot and equestrian), 1-mile Black Lake (foot and equestrian) and the 1-mile Shoreline (foot).


This comfortable, rustic 2-story cabin features a kitchen, a full bathroom with a flush toilet and hot shower, one downstairs bedroom with a full size bed and a futon, two upstairs bedrooms with five twin beds, propane heater and electric lights.
