Factoid: Fern Ridge Lake, a popular recreation area for sailing, power boating, and water skiing, is just 12 miles from downtown Eugene, OR. The Fern Ridge Dam was completed in 1941 and provides needed flood risk management. Six park sites and several remote access points around the lake offer a variety of day use recreation opportunities such as picnicking, swimming, fishing, hunting and wildlife viewing. Richardson Park operated by Lane County Parks at the north end of the lake has overnight camping sites. The area includes extensive wetlands and provides unique habitat for a variety of wildlife and wintering waterfowl populations.
