Detroit, Oregon is a tiny community on the shores of stunning Detroit Lake, offering a wonderful Central Oregon getaway at any time of year. There may be no more relaxing spot in this lush corridor of National Forest land than a Detroit Lake, Oregon vacation rental, where you can enjoy one of the state's most popular tourist destinations from the peace and quiet of your own private retreat. With 32 miles of sun-drenched shoreline surrounded by the lush pine trees of the Willamette National Forest, Detroit Lake is a favorite summer destination for Oregonians. Boaters, swimmers, fishermen, kayakers, jet skiers, and sunbathers flock to the lake during the warmer months. Bikers can ride through scenic logging roads to the Breitenbush River, passing by picturesque views and waterfalls. For a town of only a few hundred residents, Detroit welcomes its visitors with open arms and a full event calendar: visit over the 4th of July for the fireworks show, in May for the annual fishing derby, in September for the classic car show honoring the city's namesake, or in December for a holiday lights tour. Winter is particularly peaceful in Detroit, with the crowds long gone and pristine snow blanketing the area. The HooDoo ski area is just 40 minutes south for skiing and snowboarding, and the nearby Breitenbush Hot Springs are especially lovely with snow falling all around. Whether you plan on spending your days on the lake, at the mountain, or exploring the national forest, we know you'll enjoy returning each evening to your own private Detroit Lake vacation rental!
