Detroit Lake State Recreation Area

General Advisory

Starting 09/01/2018
Please be aware that lake levels are significantly lowered in the fall and winter seasons. Boat slips and boat ramps in the overnight campground become unusable by October. There is a winter ramp at Mongold that allows for launching through the winter unless the lake level drops below the minimum pool level of 1450. Please visit to view current lake levels at Detroit Lake Reservoir and other reservoirs in the Willamette Valley.
