Very nice place to stop for a night or longer. Great friendly employees. Sites easily fit large rigs and most sites are pull-thru. - jprisbe

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

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

Our site 14 in B loop spacious, separated by shrubbery from neighbors, some tree shade. Dish washing spigot near, across the road from adjacent campsite. Lots of wooded, uneven but paved, walking paths that are used by families for bicycling trails. Nice playground for kiddos. Hot showers, included with camp fee, were a three minute walk away. Tent camping area shaded by mature trees but sites open, in sight of neighbors. Limited hours for sale of fire wood by friendly camp hosts. - rvYoungster16

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

Old and worn park. Tight spaces. Mostly old long term residents. Water was out when we arrived. Narrow roads. Weeds for a dog park. Tight spaces. We will avoid staying here ever again. - Ken Camp

The pictures on the website are very misleading. The park is very dirty and covered in moss and mud. The laundry, restroom and shower facilities are terrible. Leaky washers, noisy dryers, broken tiles in the showers. We came down because of a job change and planned to stay for a spell until we could gain permanent residence. We left after 3 nights. - bootsandsox73

This park has only one advantage: cheap. Traffic noise is intolerable. Significant leveling is required, and the pavement on the sites leaves only inches to spare for good tire placement. Sewer hookup is too far away to use; you have to dump as you're pulling into your site, then put away the slinky and pull the rest of the way in for the rest of your stay. Staff is friendly and nice though. I would not stay here again unless it was the only place in town with sites left. - Old Mountain Man

An very old KOA that has been re-branded. While it has been cared for, it is old and worn. Tent camping sites, RV sites and some storage. Sits right next to the I-5 and state route 22 behind a home depot. Very noisy. Like most older parks there are many perms on the south end. Sad part is management has let them build shanties next to their RVs so it looks really trashy. Most of the North end is for the overnighters. The DSL switch is failing so didn't work. Good news, you can log on to Home Depots DSL. Management are park residents so they are easy to work with. Maintenance is almost everyday. It was OK for a few days. I thought it was a $10.00 overpriced for the age and condition. - lonfu

The owners and staff here were so nice! The park is beautifully maintained and convenient to all the stores along Lancaster Road. Loved the laundry room; good prices and very clean! If we're ever in Salem again, we will definitely stay here. - Ancientone

They say they are pet friendly and even have a dog area but my cat accidentally got loose and they caught her and called animal control, even though she had my cell phone number on her tag and I listed her on my paperwork. My children also got into trouble for riding their skateboards down the "Adult only" street, we were not told that they had a separate family and adult only section. Lots of traffic coming and going due to the on site storage facility. Nice and quiet during the night, not good for long term stay but OK for a night or two. - Susan Sasso

This is an excellent park, with spotless facilities, new washers and dryers, friendly staff, and well maintained parking sites. The sites are full hookups with grassy areas between each.
We stayed here for three nights while visiting family in Salem, so we didn't spend much time at the park. The park itself is a friendly oasis in a not so great area of Salem. It is near the fair grounds though, so there may be events there that are of interest.
We would stay here again if visiting Salem. - sail2blue

This is very beautiful park, manicured lawns between sites, most also have a tree. Very friendly check-in service. We stayed here a week. Good WiFi and plenty of channels on the cable TV. The water pressure is a bit on the low side, which is a drag when your taking a shower. Other than that a great place to stay. We got the weekly rate with Good Sam discount. - tookie

The park is 100% good however the big negative is that it backs onto a Safeway store which although great for shopping has trucks loading/unloading during the early morning (4:00AM) with their engine running. We were there for 2 weeks and never had a good nights sleep.
No pool etc. however the wifi was excellent as were the staff. Solve the noise polution and you would have an excellent park. - TommBoyd

Large Elks Lodge RV Park. Most sites have Summer Elks, enjoying the Oregon weather. Good food at lodge. Plenty of shopping close, Walmart, Costco within a miles, Road noise , airplane noise fine. 50 amp/water Dump available Helpful Host on site. Will stop again. - silverado

Road and sites are gravel and level. They have some full hookup sites & others are just water & electricity. There is also a dump station on site. The Camp host is friendly and very helpful. You do hear noise from I-5 & the National Guard across the street but we didn't find it bothersome. I guess we are just used to it because so many RV parks are near railroad tracks & highways. Costco, WalMart, and Lowe's are all within a mile between lodge and I-5. Downtown Salem & all the attractions are only a few miles away. There are walking paths to walk the dogs. There are a lot of monthly people & some older rigs but everyone is very nice. Most of the long term people are those who stay at the lodge for the summer then head to AZ or TX for the winter. We were there for July 4th & they had a pot luck for all the people in the campground. It was a lot of fun. - gourdguru

You must be an Elk to stay here. Most of the sites were filled with long term permanent residents or units in storage. A bit disheveled but OK for one night. Close to shopping, nice park in back of the Lodge, fairly level gravel sites, friendly camp host, places to walk your dog, WiFi worked great and hook-ups worked great. Big negative for me was the road noise and, until 11:23 pm, the National Guard airport (across the street) flying their helicopters over our heads. Hard to get used to the noise if you are only staying one or two nights. We usually love our Elks Lodge stays but this one we will pass up next time through. - PERRELLAS

We only stayed overnight here, but found this park to be very clean, with level concrete pads and great hook ups. Our check in was very pleasant. There was a beautiful pool area and an indoor hot tub. - Admiral II

Price is based on $200 weekly rate. Beautiful, clean park owned and operated by the local Native American tribe. Pride of ownership is obvious everywhere you look. Beautiful pool and clubhouse facilities. Friday breakfast was the highlight of our week long stay. We'll be back for a month next year. - LMH

The site we stayed in was full hook up, 30 amp. Loved this campground. We were here off season so, though almost full, it was very quiet. Lots of trees and shade and a quick walk to the lake. Site was very un-level but worth it. We would definitely stay here again!! - joans8849

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
