Fall Creek Reservoir is a prime recreation area surrounded by day-use parks and a primitive campground. Together these six parks comprise Fall Creek State Recreation Area.

On the south side of the tree-lined reservoir, Winberry day-use area provides a two-lane boat ramp and parking for more than 100 cars and 150 boat trailers. It features flush restrooms; a swim dock and swim beach; and picnic areas with barbecue grills and fire rings.

Four other small day-use sites on the north side of the lake. North Shore day-use area has high- and low-water ramps as well as a picnic area overlooking the water. It is open April - September. The others are Free Meadow and Lakeside I and II.

Primitive Camping

For those who want to spend the night under the stars, Cascara Campground has 39 campsites, vault toilets, drinking water, a boat ramp and a swim area. The first-come, first-served sites are tucked among towering Douglas firs, many with lake views. Just down the road, Fisherman’s Point Campground offers group camping on the lake shore.
