A Day On the Water

Like a diamond, there are many facets to dazzle you at Cooper Creek!
Located 2 miles east of downtown Sutherlin you’ll find a picturesque spot that lends itself to outdoor activities any time of year.

A mid-range challenging hiking/mountain bike trail circles the entire 160-acre reservoir. There are also plenty of easy access paths that are densely covered for you to explore nature’s beauty in. Put on those hiking boots or grab your bike and enjoy. Be sure to pack your lunch and relax in picnic areas with complete amenities for your comfort.

There are three parking areas and entrances to Cooper Creek with availability for swimming, boating and fishing complete with a dock, two concrete boats launches and good bank access for fishing. Legal-size rainbow trout are stocked each spring. Cooper Creek boasts largemouth bass, bluegill, crappie and brown bullhead catfish angling opportunities. Cooper Creek hosts a Free Fishing Weekend each June. Jet skiing and water skiing are very popular activities. See you soon and please note the park is for day use only, and no camping is allowed.
