Things To Do

Overview

Zipping down Highway 58 east of Eugene, you suddenly find yourself driving along side a long, skinny reservoir. In spring, summer and fall, the Dexter and Lookout Point Reservoirs are dotted with boats. Whether you like to picnic, fish, boat or just walk, you'll find a pair of convenient day-use parks on the lake. Lowell, accessible by crossing over the reservoir at the Lowell turn-off from Highway 58, is a great place to take a break. With its towering oaks, the park is a beautiful place for a picnic. Picnic areas, a short walking trail, boat access and a marina are just a few of the amenities packed into this small park. Please note that the restroom is closed for major repairs. Porta-potties are available, including one that meets ADA requirements.
