PINE MEADOWS CAMPGROUND

Overview

Pine Meadows Campground is located on Cottage Grove Lake in Oregon’s southern Willamette Valley.

Recreation

Cottage Grove Lake and its shoreline, set in the gently rolling hills of the Willamette Valley, are used for numerous outdoor activities both on land and on water. There are boat ramps at Lakeside Park and Wilson Creek Park nearby, giving visitors easy access to the lake for boating and fishing.

Families can use the swim beach or picnic along the shore. The lake is also a designated stop along the Big River Loop of the Willamette Valley Birding Trail, a self-guided driving tour that includes 138 birding hotspots.

Facilities

The campground has nearly 100 sites that each offer fire rings and picnic tables, several of which are on the lake shore. Sites 1-92 are standard sites within the main campground at Pine Meadows. Sites A – O are primitive sites with limited amenities on a loop adjacent to Pine Meadows Campground.

Other amenities include flush toilets, showers, a dump station, children’s play area and a swim area.

Natural Features

Located in the low foothills of the Calapooya Mountains, Pine Meadows is surrounded by a diverse mixture of marshland, coniferous forests, and grasslands.

The area is managed to provide habitat for a wide variety of wildlife species, including waterfowl, black-tailed deer, upland game birds, songbirds, bald eagles, osprey, and many other species.

Visitors can see rare birds like the purple martin, the willow flycatcher, and the yellow-breasted chat in the lake area. Osprey and purple martins nest in nearby structures.

Late Cancellations

Individual Campsites: A customer who cancels a reservation the day before or on the day of arrival will pay a $10.00 service fee AND forfeit the first night’s use fee (not to exceed the total paid for the original reservation).

A no-show customer is one who does not arrive at a campground and does not cancel the reservation by check-out time on the day after the scheduled arrival date.

If a customer departs prior to the scheduled check-out date, they may be eligible for a partial refund. Please notify staff at the facility if you depart early to allow others to use the site. Customers may notify the call center to request a refund of remaining unused nights. If a customer requests a refund for an early departure after the facility check-out time has passed, the customer will not be refunded for that night and is eligible for a refund on any additional nights that will not be used.
