Cottage Grove Lake

Cottage Grove Lake project, on the Coast Fork of the Willamette River, is about 5 miles south of Cottage Grove. The dam is an earthfill structure with concrete spillway, which impounds 33,000 acre-feet of water at full pool.

The lake and its shoreline are used for boating, swimming, water skiing, fishing, (bass, trout and catfish), picnicking and camping. Visitors may camp at Pine Meadows Campground or Primitive Campground on the east side of the lake. Three day-use parks--Wilson Creek, Lakeside Park, and Shortridge--are along the shoreline.

The shoreline is managed to provide habitat for a wide variety of wildlife species, including waterfowl, blacktail deer, upland game birds, bald eagles and many other species.

Guided tours are available on request. Phone the number below or write Project Manager, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, General Delivery, Lowell OR 97452.
