6 Parks near Detroit, Oregon
Jul 2014 - $9.00
The quietest of the four USFS campgrounds on Detroit Lake. Pure water, large stately trees and the campground hosts were the absolute best. - Old Mountain Man

The second of the three USFS campgrounds on Blowout Road. A bit noisy esp. on weekends, mostly from speedboats on the lake. Pay showers are a bit expensive. Nice boat ramp and trails. On July 4 you can watch fireworks show across the lake in town. Camp hosts are friendly, helpful and promptly take care of business. - Old Mountain Man

This section of the park is water and electric. Sites are paved but not level so bring necessary leveling equipment. In fact, some sites while paved are very uneven with some buckling of the pavement.
The campground has lots of trees and foliage which provides for shade. If you are camped next to Highway 22 you can get a lot of road noise, if you are camped near the lake you can get a lot of boat noise. Overall it's not bad, after all you are camping outdoors.
Fishing by boat or from the bank is generally good, power bait works well. There is a fishing dock provided however, lake must be at least 3/4 full.
The Army Corps of Engineers use this lake for water and flood control, so they start to drain it in late September for the fall rains.
Detroit is a nice state campground and open year round, but they limit some loops during the winter months. - Sherwolfe

We stayed at Detroit Lake in mid-May; before the summer craziness, and it was beautiful and quiet. Only a few fishing boats on the lake which was full! Dogwoods and rhododendrons were blooming in the campground and the geese were leading their babies along the shoreline. We had a full hookup site in G loop close to the lake. It had 30 amp service. The water/electric sites in H loop are only 20 amp. Not a lot to do if you don't have a boat but a nice area for a short stay. - SiskiyouSenior

One of Oregon's more popular state parks, with hundreds of narrow, paved, not-quite-level sites -- some of which can accommodate a big rig -- crammed in to a small strip of land between the highway and the lake. Always noisy -- this is a play area for powered watercraft -- and nearly always full: reservations are strongly recommended. Electrical hookups are 15 amp only (and installed upside down!) so you won't be able to run your A/C. Rules enforcement is rather anal-retentive. Good park if you're coming to play or party. Not for quiet contemplation. - Old Mountain Man

This is a pretty rustic campground, but good for tents or campers or small trailers. Sites are shady which is nice in hot weather, but when cool and rainy it is not so great. Spaces are decent size. There is a boat launch and room to park boat trailers. Campground is quiet at night. The lake is nearby - walking distance and good for fishing, swimming, and water sports. - joedavid

Beautiful National Forest Campground in Mt. Hood NF, 6 miles away from Bagby Hot Springs. The campground is one of multiple along the road through the park. Sites are spacious with lots of trees and plenty of room between sites. Lots of hiking and fishing nearby. Pit toilets are cleaned daily and a water spout for potable water is available. - mikeyair

River loop you must reserve. Camp loop (also call overnight loop) is 1st come (but you can reserve some of those as well). River loop is $28/night. Camp loop - odd numbered sites are $22/night. Camp loop - even numbered sites are $16/night. Camp loop odd numbered sites are pull thru so you have lots of room. Some are double sites so you camp camp with your buddies. Camp loop even numbered sites are all back in. They are very short. 12 to 18 feet in depth, so you need a small trailer to get into site. Lots of trails, facilities are clean, very private wooded sites with lots of space between them. The ONLY reason this gets a 7 is because the road noise at all the Camp loop pull thru is very noticeable. River loop is quieter because the N. Santiam river flows by very swiftly. Sites at River loop though are very small. Will not take a rig much bigger than 25 feet. Most of the tent sites are along the river. $5 to dump at the station even if you're a camper. A beautiful place and we would return again. It is open May to late Oct. - theresal58

Fishermen's Bend is one of the best kept secrets in Oregon! It is a BLM campground that feels like a State Park. The sites are shady, roomy and very clean, the hosts even rake the sites after each use! There's plenty of things to do there, fishing, boating, horseshoes, volleyball, basketball, 2 softball fields, a amphitheater with evening programs and planned weekend activities for both kids and adults. The bathrooms are clean and the the many hosts there are nice. If I have some complaints it's that it's getting harder to get a spot here as the park is getting more popular recently, for first come first serve you need to get there on a Wednesday morning for a site. The other complaint is the campground is only open May to October. - Yosemite Dan
