Meh, It's fine

Pros: Big sites, room for extra cars, close the recreation especially Detroit Lake, nice camp host, close to town if you need something.

Cons: On. The. Highway! The sound of semi trucks through the night is not peaceful. Bathrooms were ok, not great.

Dry, not very private.

Good campground. The other campgrounds in this area are more forested and that's why this one gets 3 stars. I like trees. However, we were there for the eclipse and I got what I wanted. Nicer vault toilets, blackberry picking, wildlife viewing. Nice open beach area.

Sailing, boating, water skiing and fishing are all excellent options for enjoying Detroit Lake. Catfish, rainbow trout and Kokanee salmon are among the most common species found in the lake.

Several hiking trails dot the area, including Stahlman Point Trail, which offers beautiful vistas of Detroit Lake and the surrounding area. The Hoover Nature Trail is an accessible, short footpath that delights many campers.

The Willamette National Forest has about 1,700 miles of trail. While many are in wilderness areas, a number of trails are low-elevation, easy-access trails for year-round hiking.

Facilities

Sites have picnic tables, grills and easy access to the vault toilets. Drinking water spigots are spread throughout the campground. Most campsites offer views of the lake. Santiam Flats does not have a boat launch ramp. Some of the sites are adjacent to the shoreline and mooring is allowed.

Natural Features

The campground lies in the Willamette National Forest, which stretches for 110 miles along the western slopes of the Cascade Range. The varied landscape of high mountains, narrow canyons, cascading streams and wooded slopes offer varied recreational opportunities for visitors.
