“Loud and annoying campers. If you don't boat, there is little point in camping in this area.”

Overall Rating

We originally wanted to stay at Detroit Lake State Park, but without reservations, we were out of luck. I think the place gets so busy that they leave the "campground full" sign up all season. Anyway, all the campgrounds in this area are really busy, cramped, and in our experience, was full of loud, drunk, and annoying campers. I heard the word F#!K in this campground all day and night, and it was not good for kids to be around. We wanted just a place to fish from shore. There are a few piers that were nice, but most shore fishing is few and far between. I don't remember the prices for each spot, but we paid for a multi-use site in order to have a little more privacy. However, this extra space gives a person about the same amount of space as a decent campground would. The scenery around the reservoir is really pretty but that is about all this place has going for it. Maybe the state park is a better to stay, but all the overflow campgrounds: Hoover, Cove Creek, Santiam Flats, ect. are not great places to stay, especially with children. Also, if you want to go shore fishing in the state park, you have to be staying in the campground or you cannot enter.
