Overall Rating

We stayed 4 days in late July. A lake covering about 20 acres was recently stocked with 10” - 12” trout. There is both reserved camping and walkup camping (meaning that they hold some spots for people who show up without reservations).

We were on the RV side but the other side is mostly tents. There is a mostly paved, handicap accessible path all the way around the lake with benches, fishing docks, and other amenities. There is a ramp of sorts to launch your small boats or floaties and a sand/clay beach.

The RV side is quiet and well laid out with easy access to the lake via several paths. There is no electricity or sewage in the park but there is a place to fill water containers. If you need to fill your RV tank, you can do so down the road a few miles at the ranger station. Nearest dump station is at the Crook County RV park on Main Street in Prineville 25 miles away.

The park host Don was one of the friendliest and helpful I have ever encountered. Firewood and earthworms for sale at the host’s site.

After we left Detroit Lake we met up with Tiffani and Deke over at Walton Lake Campground in the Ochoco National Forest in Central Oregon. This is a gorgeous little lake with campsites on both sides...
