Nice place, the lake was pretty, didn't spend much time, one night. but I would stay there again. The road was gravel, had lots of trees (Pine) so there were needles everywhere. Seemed to be a lot of full timers. The laundry was very nice and clean, and the showers were great, clean and plenty of hot water. We camped at Fern Ridge Shores in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

It is fairly close to Eugene, so anything you would need isn't that far away. You do have to watch for the turnoff from HWY 126, as there was not a sign. It is quite a peaceful place.

This park is a gem. Unfortunately it is almost completely taken by permanent or long term campers. Sites are only available when some of them leave for traveling. The park is right on the lake, at the dead end of a residential street. Everything is manicured and welcoming. Most rigs in the park are newer models or in excellent shape. The sites are generously sized and well level. Good hookups. Verizon works well. Some large trees in the park. We did not use any facilities, thus can't comment. Very friendly and helpful staff. When traveling through the area again we will not hesitate to take the detour to stay here again. But make sure to call in advance for site availability! We camped at Fern Ridge Shores in a Fifth Wheel.

Helpful friendly staff. Clean park. It is easy to miss the driveway on Jean Street which would be a problem for those who are towing because it's a dead end. We were taken to the available sites and were able to choose one that we liked. It was one row off the water. Beautiful view of the water; however, all the waterfront sites seem to have permanent or semi-permanent residents but nicely kept. There are lots of trees. If you have a satellite, it's hard to get a southern exposure for your dish. The residential streets off of Highway 126 had some low hanging tree branches which skirted the roof. Things were pretty quiet on the day we were here. No Wi-Fi, but my Sprint Air Card worked beautifully. We camped at Fern Ridge Shores in a Motorhome.

This is a small RV park on a lake. There is a swimming area, but I wouldn't swim in it, water looked too dirty. Manager was difficult to deal with. I arrived around noon and I had a reservation. When I checked in, the manager made a big issue about only being able to accept "local" credit cards. I finally offered my VISA (which was NOT "local") and the manager indicated they could take that. As soon as I checked in, the manager closed the door. Talk about being unavailable! This park is open around April or May through October. It appeared that most of the spots here were occupied by "residents" who had their RV set up with porches and decks built onto them. I'm actually surprised there were ANY overnight spots here at all! Park has full water, electric, sewer, and cable, but I had to "hunt" for the cable hookup. Each site has a small storage building. It appears that if you stay here awhile, you could probably store things in the small building, bring your own lock. There is a pay phone if needed. Laundry was pretty cheap as of this writing, but if you want hot water, you have to insert an extra quarter above the amount specified. There are plenty of trees for shade. My computer detected an unsecured wireless system for the park, but I was unable to connect to it. Other residents said they either didn't use it, or thought you needed a "code" for it. We camped at Fern Ridge Shores in a Motorhome.

This park is really beautiful. The grounds are well kept. I recommend getting receipts for whatever money you give the manager. Dana has been the manager for more than 15 years. Most of her immediate family live in the park. Staying a day or two would be fun. The swimming area is easy on your feet, no big rocks, and has a nice big grassy area with fire pits and picnic tables. If you come late in the summer, you can pick blackberries near the swimming area. The boat launch is really nice and the marina has new docks. This reservoir is well used in the summer. We camped at Fern Ridge Shores in a Fifth Wheel.

This RV Park and Marina is located at the tip of a peninsula on Fern Ridge Lake. Used for flood control, the lake is normally only full Apr to Oct. Approximately 75% of the sites (and all waterfront sites) are permanent, but very neat and well kept. The sites are relatively level gravel with a small cement patio, storage shed and plenty of grass. The sites are spaced more widely apart than average. Some sites offer shade, some sun and are satellite friendly. There is a boat ramp, swimming area, and large grassy open areas. We camped at Fern Ridge Shores in a Motorhome.
