Things To Do

Overview

Fall Creek Reservoir is a prime recreation area surrounded by day-use parks and a campground. Cascara campground, on the south shore near the point where Fall Creek enters the lake, is tucked away amid towering Douglas fir trees. The 47 primitive campsites are great for tenters who remember that there are times when "roughing it" means just that. Every site comes equipped with a fire ring and picnic table. The campground has a swimming area, complete with a deck, and boat ramp. Looking for a place to camp with your group? A reservable RV group camp, Fisherman's Point, is just across the road from Cascara campground. And if you want to get out on the reservoir, check out one of the five day-use areas. Winberry, with its two-lane boat ramp and parking for more than 100 cars and 150 boat trailers, is the largest. There are four other day-use sites. Three offer primitive boat ramps. The North Shore site has a low-water ramp, vault toilets and is open year-round.

Park Partners

Middle Fork Willamette Watershed Council

The purpose of the Middle Fork Willamette Watershed Council is to serve "...as a volunteer-based partnership of diverse watershed stakeholders that focuses on promoting sustainability and making the Middle Fork Willamette Watershed a better place to live, work, and visit; for now and future generations."

The council works to restore and sustain the ecological integrity and economic viability of the Middle Fork Willamette Watershed and to promote local control by providing effective voluntary solutions to watershed issues. The council's origins date back to early 1998, when community members interested in establishing a watershed council within the Middle Fork Willamette Watershed began meeting. The movement gradually grew and led to support funding being secured from the Oregon Watershed Enhancement Board (OWEB) in January of 2000. A council operating charter was developed during the summer and fall of 2000, and the Lane County Board of Commissioners formally recognized the Middle Fork Willamette Watershed Council on November 21, 2000.
