As winter approaches and temperatures drop, some parts of The Cove Palisades are closing for the season. These closures include Lower Deschutes Day-Use, the Deschutes Campground, Group Camp and parts of the Crooked River Campground. Floating restrooms will be pulled off the lake in October. (please call the park at 541-546-3412 for specific questions.)
For those visitors seeking solitude this is a great time of year to visit. Fishing, kayaking on the lake, hiking the Tam A Lau Trail, picnicking in the Crooked River Day-use Area are all wonderful ways to indulge in and enjoy the fall weather. Day-time temperatures are still warm, the trees in Crooked River Campground will be turning golden and crimson soon, wildlife abounds and you will love the piece and quiet.
