Jubilee has a low bank, with excellent fishing access. Near the summit of the Blue Mountains at 4,696 feet, the lake can be snowbound until mid-June. In June and July fish can be caught anywhere in the lake, but as the water warms in August better fishing can be found in the deeper water near the dam at the southeast side of the lake
There is a popular 50-site campground on the west side of the lake, the largest in the Umatilla National Forest. Facilities also include four day-use picnic areas, and a 2.8 mile paved hiking trail that encompasses the lake and is fully wheelchair accessible. There is a paved boat ramp adjacent to the campground. Only electric motors may be used on boats.
Fees: Yes, for camping and day-use.
Alternate Activities: There is a paved hiking trail around the entire perimeter of the lake. The lake is surrounded by dense mixed conifer forest. Water quality is very good.
