Overview

Overview

Slide Creek Campground is a unique camping destination just 50 miles from Eugene, Oregon. Located on the east bank of the Cougar Reservoir, it is known for handy access to boating and many water activities.

It is also near Terwilliger Hot Springs, a pristine area with 5 soaking pools fed by the Rider Creek waterfall.

Natural Features:

The Willamette National Forest stretches for 110 miles with varied landscapes of high mountains, narrow canyons, cascading streams, and wooded slopes. Native wildlife includes Roosevelt elk, black bear, Northern bald eagles, mule deer and bobcats.

Cougar Reservoir sits at 1,700 feet in elevation and is an estimated 1,280 acres. Some campsites have views of Cougar Reservoir and all sites are an easy walk to the swimming beach.

Recreation:

Activities on the reservoir include water skiing, swimming, fishing or canoeing. Anglers might catch some quality rainbow trout.

The campground is close to a large network of hiking trails in the Olallie Trail Area. Half of the trails are open to biking as well.

Facilities:

Both campground and the day use area guests have access to drinking water, vault toilets, a boat ramp, ample parking and a swimming beach. A separate parking lot is available for boat trailers.

The campsites can accommodate tents, trailers or RVs and come equipped with campfire rings and picnic tables.
