Lookout Campground and Boat Launch is on Blue River Reservoir east of Eugene, Oregon. Get to it via the West Cascades National Scenic Byway on the western slopes of the Cascade Mountains. Lookout is located on the northeastern shore of the reservoir on a beautiful open meadow with plenty of sunshine.
Lookout is open year-round for first-come-first-served camping. About half of the 19 campsites are available for reservation for peak season camping from mid-April through Labor Day. Check out Recreation.gov for rates and availability.
Campers enjoy fishing, boating, swimming, and water skiing on Blue River Reservoir. Buck Mountain Trail (hiking/mountain biking) and Lookout Creek Old Growth Trail (hiking) are popular trails nearby. Sightseeing on this section of the West Cascades National Scenic Byway takes you through old growth forests and to additional trails for viewing the spectacular Sahalie Falls and Koosah Falls.
