Lorella, formerly Haynesville, is an unincorporated community in Klamath County, Oregon, United States.[1] It lies southeast of Bonanza along East Langell Valley Road.[2] The Lost River flows through the Langell Valley and near Lorella.[2]

It became known as Lorella, for a local resident, on December 13, 1894, shortly after the establishment of a post office on August 3, 1887. Joseph K. Haynes was first postmaster. The office closed in March 1930.[3]
