Dorena Reservoir at Cottage Grove, Oregon

Dorena Reservoir at Cottage Grove, Oregon
About a month ago, Steve and I went with our friend up to Cottage Grove and took our bikes on a 35 mile ride in the area. Most of the ride included views of this amazing reservoir! Isn't it just breathtaking?!!!

From Wiki:
Dorena Reservoir (also Dorena Lake) is a reservoir on the Row River in Lane County, Oregon, United States. It is located 6 miles (9.7 km) east of Cottage Grove.

The Dorena Dam creating the reservoir was completed in 1949 as one of the thirteen dams of the United States Army Corps of Engineers in the Willamette Valley. In June 2012, the Corps of Engineers approved a project to begin producing hydroelectric power from the dam.

Set at the south end of the Willamette Valley and criss-crossed by the coast fork of the Willamette River and the Row River the area was susceptible to periodic flooding from large snow melts in the surrounding mountains. In the 1940’s the United States Army Corps of Engineers began construction of dams which created the Cottage Grove Reservoir and Dorena Lake. Dorena Lake has become an enormously popular summer vacation destination with its Baker Bay Marina and camping and Shwartz Park campground. Visitor estimates top 80,000 people annually.
