In case you are looking for a peaceful quiet place where you can spend some time only with your close ones and friends, then look no further. The Perkins Peninsula County Park in Venetta is your destination. The grassy lawns of this park will allow lazing around and refreshing from the daily chores of life.

Perkins Peninsula County Park Reviews & Ratings
I've been by here several times on my way to the coast but this is the first time I was able to stop and explore. I wish I had taken the time sooner. It is so beautiful and peaceful.
I used to love this place as a kid, but sadly it's seen better days. A lot of the concrete along the shoreline is crumbled and gone, nature has reclaimed some sections of old walkways, and unfortunately (like many parks in Lane county these days) a hypodermic needle was laying on the ground near a bench with kids just a couple yards away. On the bright side the grass was mowed and boat ramp was still usable. I know the needle bit isn't the fault of the park or the caretaker, I know it's from careless "guests" but it was still a damper on the otherwise decent family outing and experience.
This has long been a favorite park to stop at a relax for a bit. If it has a negative side, its that when the summer winds kick up after about 11:00AM, Fern Ridge Reservoir becomes impassable with huge waves. My advice, go early for boating, kayaking and dont risk an open canoe without checking the local forecast.
I absolutely love this place! Beautiful park, clean, and peaceful. Could use more cans.
I love going here. It's so relaxing.
