Hills Creek Reservoir
A private dock juts into the blue green waters of Hills Creek Reservoir. A large impoundment of the Middle Fork Willamette River, Hills Creek Reservoir is located only seven miles from the Mountain Community of Oakridge. Hills Creek Reservoir provides excellent recreational opportunities such as trout fishing, boating, camping and water skiing; and is set amidst the spectacular south Willamette National Forest. Due to the increasing frequency of drier climatic conditions, and downstream need for water allocations, Hills Creek Reservoir is increasingly not being filled to capacity, or not being left full for more than a few weeks at a time.
