Cove Creek Campground
Cove Creek Campground rests on the shores of Detroit Lake at an elevation of 1,600 feet. Campsites are surrounded by towering trees, which create a secluded atmosphere. Visitors enjoy exploring the area and discovering osprey hovering above or nesting in many trees. The campground lies in the Willamette National Forest, which stretches 110 miles along the western slopes of the Cascade Range.

Detroit lake is very popular and on summer weekends it might feel like all of Salem is at the lake. Detroit lake is large with plenty of room to spread out if you have a boat. Detroit Lake is very popular for wake boarding, water skiing, and tubing. Fishing is also the other primary form of entertainment. Fishermen and motor boaters compete for space on the lake. Detroit Lake receives the largest number of rainbow plants in the state. Kokanee, and Chinook Salmon are also planted. Trolling with lures and still bait fishing are the most productive methods.

The town of Detroit feels like a resort community. It is not far from any of the campgrounds and can be reached by car or boat. It provides most services that one would want including a gas station, two grocery stores, lodging and several restaurants. There are two marinas on the lake, both offering boat rentals.

From Detroit, Oregon, go 2 miles east on Highway 22 to Blowout Road #10. Turn right and drive 2.5 miles west on Blowout Road.
