Mann Lake attracts anglers as much for its remote, rugged splendor as for its Lahontan cuttrout trout. These trout are supremely adapted to survive alkaline desert waters, and without them, fisheries like Mann Lake could not exist. Named for an early Harney County rancher, Mann Lake on the east side of Steens Mountain is a favorite fishing spot for rainbow and cutthroat trout.
Located at the eastern base of Steens Mountain about 90 miles southeast of Burns, Mann Lake Campground is accessible by an all-weather gravel road. The campground is semi-developed with two vault toilets and two boat ramps.
