Slide Creek Campground
In Oregon, a bicycle is legally considered a vehicle, and the same Oregon road laws apply. Please “be seen” and practice safe riding. Vehicle traffic, farm equipment and narrow shoulders exist on many Oregon roads, and you may find that construction projects, traffic or other events may cause road conditions or signage to differ from the map results, ride descriptions and directions. For travel options plus weather and road conditions, visit tripcheck.com, call 511 (in Oregon only), 800.977.6368 or 503.588.2941.

Slide Creek Campground, boat ramp and swim area is located on the east side of Cougar Reservoir 2 miles north of the Westside Bridge. Dwarfed by steep slopes of conifers, this diverse recreational area has recently been enlarged to improve the campground and its facilities. This area attracts hundreds of fishermen, boaters, swimmers and water skiers from early spring until late October. The reservoir is open to fishing year round. It has a double bath house and the swimming area is buoy marked for the user’s safety.
