This time of year only the F and G Sections were open, which are full hook-ups, and it is not crowded at all. The lake was very low but filling for the summer months, however, fishing was not good at all. We've stayed here before and fishing is generally good either from the bank or in a boat. Mostly trout and for those with a boat, kokanee fishing at times can be very good. No pull through sites, and if you have a Motor Coach, Large Fifth Wheel, or long trailer none of the sites in A-B Section will be suitable. All sites are back-in in all sections with paved sites, picnic table and fire pit. For most sites, they are paved and level. However, there are also sites with steep drops and then they level out. The web site does have some pictures of the selected sites but this doesn't always show the ramps well. H Section is water and electric only. There are gray water dumps scattered around within H Section so with a bucket you can dump gray water if necessary, however there is NO sewer dump within the park. Fishermans Bend Campground near Mill City has a dump station for free just outside their campground. During the summer months this park is VERY busy and lots of water skiing, jet skies and fishing boats. Some boats can be very loud. Sheriff Marine Patrols are on the lake and do a good job of keeping things safe. There are two local marinas and boats are available to rent for fishing as well as pontoon boats for families. There are boat slips available at the campground for rent and limited boat trailer parking at the two boat ramps. We camped at Detroit Lake State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

The town of Detroit has a few little restaurants, a couple of small stores with limited supplies. Not a lot to do in town as far a shopping or sight seeing. Kaine's Marina has fuel as well as boating and fishing supplies, but limited. Breitenbush Hot Springs is located about 30 miles up stream from the town of Detroit. Check their website for information and directions.

Overall Rating:

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. We camped at Detroit Lake State Park in a Travel Trailer.
