Cougar Reservoir Area

In the summer months, Cougar Reservoir is a popular place for boating, swimming and fishing. Cougar Reservoir is located outside of Blue River along Aufderheide Drive, part of the West Cascades National Scenic Byway.

Camping is restricted to developed campgrounds in the Cougar Recreation Area. There are three developed campgrounds near the reservoir, Cougar CrossingSlide Creek, and Sunnyside. The popular Terwilliger Hot Springs is along Rider Creek just west of the reservoir.


A lake is the landscape’s most beautiful and expressive feature. It is earth’s eye; looking into which the beholder measures the depth of his own nature.Henry David Thoreau


Not every lake dreams to be an ocean. Blessed are the ones who are happy with whom they are.Mehmet Murat ildan
