North Santiam Sportsman's Club

a private recreational campground since 1952

Thank you for visiting the North Santiam Sportsman’s Club Website. 


Members of the N.S.S.C. are dedicated to the promotion of recreational activities at Detroit Lake and the well-being of the town of Detroit. The N.S.S.C. has been in existence since the Army Corp of Engineers approached a group of sportsmen in Portland in the early 1950's about forming a club up at Detroit Lake, to promote the new reservoir created by the building of the Detroit Dam.


If you would like to know more about the N.S.S.C. and its campground please see the About page.  You will find information and a link to a membership application. 


If you are interested in using the facilities for large or small group activities please use the Contact page and let us know how we may be able to assist you.  We have hosted many different groups including, company picnics, boy/girl scouts, weddings, school outings, corporate retreats and family reunions.

The North Santiam Sportsman's Club, in partnership with Willamette National Forest, operates this site through a Special Use Permit from the USDA, US Forest Service, an equal opportunity provider and employer,
