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

We scheduled 5 nights at SFSP but only stayed for 3 because of the rain which isn't uncommon in that area, but still not enjoyable hiking weather for us. It was though, and has in the past been, a fabulous park to visit. Most sites have good separation and privacy under tall firs and pines.
The main attraction for us is the hiking which is awesome. No ota television if interested, though a few sites work well for satellite. For satellite the best sites are 40 and 42 on north end of B loop, or the wide open sites at the south end, though they're not quite as deep as the others.
One of the host couples on the past visit were not the friendliest, but that's uncommon as they usually are great at most Oregon State Parks. No real need to talk to them anyway though, just pull in and enjoy.
The sites have no sewer hookups and the dump station is 3 miles to the north. It opens at 9 am till about 6 pm (I think, not positive), so it's not a big deal but something to keep in mind. - oregoncamper

Beautiful park - there is a reason this is called the 'Crown Jewel of Oregon State Parks'. Excellent site separation, good working utilities, friendly hosts and rangers. Sites are level asphalt. Absolutely NO cell coverage here. Baths and showers were mostly clean, however lots of families and tent campers stay here thus the facilities get heavy use. More frequent cleaning could compensate for the heavy usage. - TravelinTail

This is one of the jewels of the Oregon State Park system, which is one of the finest state park systems in the U.S. Silver Creek SP has 10 waterfalls with great hiking trails. This was proposed as a National Park in the 1920's but was rejected because it had been logged and there were stumps everywhere. Almost 100 years has taken care of that and today you would never know it had been logged.
We stayed in a fairly open site (we like sun, especially in Oregon) near the facilities. Sites pretty much average for Oregon SPs which means pretty spacious. Facilities were perfectly maintained. - Birdmaestro

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

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
Jul 2014 - $10.00
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 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

We have stayed here several times over the last three years, from one day, to a week, to a month. It is one of our favorite RV parks in the whole of the USA. Very friendly, clean, and so much fun if you are a golfer. - joanne 2010

Very nice park out in the country with a challenging golf course. WiFi was fine and is now included in rv rate, don't have to pay for it separately. Good bar/restaurant at the golf clubhouse. Paved sites with concrete slab for picnic table, old shade trees and ample dumpster/recycle areas. Only thing to make this place a 10 would be a pool. Very friendly out of state month-long guests escaping the heat of the southwest. Would camp here again. - Lawsons

Beautiful location, clean facilities, quiet, Wi-Fi worked great as did cable hookup. Very nice rigs here. Golf course looks amazing: would have brought our clubs had we known how nice it is. Will definitely be back! There is some road noise nearby but very minor and non-disruptive. The host was great and had everything ready for us upon arrival. - Rving Brett

Wow! What a pleasant surprise. We had a huge campsite with plenty of grass, under the trees, and close to the lake. It's quiet and beautiful. I rarely rate a place a 10 but this deserves it. Only negatives are that it's only 30 amps and no sewer connection, but the place is so nice, who cares! - bendoregonrv

Beautiful county park, part of the Linn County parks. Well maintained grassy park with easy access to the reservoir. Wonderful spaced RV spots, picnic tables and trees for shade. We had a wonderful show from the squirrels living behind our spot. The park is just gorgeous and not crowded at all when we visited. Would stay a week here next time. - PMG

This is the second time we've used this park and we really like it. As other reviews said it's all gravel but level sites and good utilities. What really impressed us is the excellent wifi. Very good at all times even in the evenings when most users are online. Park would rate a 10 if it had a pool. - Siena 1

Gravel roads and large, level sites with grass under picnic table. Some trees, not mature enough to provide shade but the climate doesn't require much relief from the sun. Easy access to the Oregon Garden and Silver Falls State Park from here. - Breeze On

Stayed 1 night in a 45 ft. motorcoach. Site was large. Nice park and we would have stayed longer but park was booked up for a rally. Very clean bath/showers and laundry. Terrific area for sight-seeing. - BruceVero

We really liked this campground. The river/swimming access is not quite as convenient or as nice, compared to some other places, but otherwise it is a very nice, newer campground. It is clean and well kept. The site we were in didn't have much shade, and there are fewer large trees in this campground than in some others, but we have a pop up canopy so it was fine. People here did seem to be very good at abiding by the campground rules. - WeCampOften

Very pleasantly surprised at how nice this county park was. Privacy between each site. River access by walk or bike. Large paved sites with picnic tables on pavement area. Long term park hosts very friendly & helpful. - Dan Jeffers

Located on the banks of the upper South Santiam River, River Bend is the newest addition to the Linn County Park System. This 90-acre park offers a full range of outdoor recreation opportunities including trails, river access, camping, day-use and group facilities. With a total of just 45 campsites, River Bend is perfect for quiet getaways. All campsites come with one fire ring and one picnic table on a concrete pad 14' wide by 16' long. Great hiking trails and pathways meander through River Bend County Park. Enjoy a quiet walk as you wind gently around the park and get in touch with nature. - ORAZRVR
