Notes:Cooper Creek Reservoir is where Douglas Country tries to provide for everyone, fishermen, water skiers, picnickers and swimmers. Spring is a good time to fish for stocked trout. As the water warms, water skiers make use of the water. Several grassy areas along the shoreline are great for picnics, and one small bay is set up for swimming.

Route:From Sutherlin travel east 1.5 miles on Central which becomes Nonpareil, turning right on South Side Road for 1 mile.
