Dexter State Recreation Site
Copyright: - Oregon State Parks
Dexter State Recreation Site
Description - Zipping down Highway 58 east of Eugene, you'll suddenly find yourself driving along side a long, skinny reservoir. In spring, summer and fall, the Dexter and Lookout Point Reservoirs are always dotted with boats.

Attractions - Whether you like to fish or boat, you'll find a pair of convenient day-use parks on the lake. Dexter State Recreation Site, on the western edge of Dexter Reservoir, not only has a large parking area and convenient access to the reservoir, but you can reach nearby Elijah Bristow State Park through a system of connecting trails. An 18-hole disc golf course is now open at the park.

Vital Stats: There is no fee to use this park. There is no water at this park.

Recreation - Popular activities at Dexter State Recreation Site include boating, waterskiing, fishing, swimming, hiking, disc golf and picnicking.

Climate - Climate in this region changes with elevation. The area receives a high amount of precipitation. Much of the precipitation comes from October to April in the form of rain at the low elevations and as wet heavy snow in the higher elevations. Winter temperatures are normally cool at the lower elevations and cold at the higher elevations. Although snow is possible in the lowest elevations, it is infrequent and does not stay on the ground for long. Late spring, summer and early autumn bring the best chance for clear, sunny days and bring moderate temperatures.

Location - Dexter State Recreation Site is located near the southern end of the Willamette Valley. It is found off Oregon Highway 58, 16 miles southeast of Eugene, next to Dexter Reservoir Dam.
