Hoover Campground rests on the shores of the sparkling Detroit Lake. The area is covered with towering trees, making for secluded, peaceful camping spots. Visitors enjoy fishing, boating on the lake, and hiking on the Stahlman Point Trail.

Natural Features:

Hoover sits among Douglas fir and maple trees and large ferns at an elevation of 1,600 feet. The campground is located in the North Santiam Travel Corridor of Willamette National Forest. The forest covers 1.6 million acres on the western slopes of the Cascade Mountains.


Sailing, boating, water skiing and fishing are all excellent options for enjoying Detroit Lake. Catfish, rainbow trout and Kokanee salmon are among the most common species found in the lake. A convenient boat ramp lies adjacent to the campground.

Several hiking trails dot the area, including Stahlman Point Trail, which offers beautiful vistas of Detroit Lake and the surrounding area. The Hoover Nature Trail is an accessible, short footpath that delights many campers.


An interpretive trail and a viewing and fishing platform are part of the campground. Each site has a campfire ring and picnic table. Flush toilets are available at the campground and the group campground has a vault toilet. Access roads are made from compacted rock and dirt. Firewood can be purchased on-site.
