Corps seeks public comments on Green Peter Reservoir recreation improvements

Published Jan. 24, 2014
PORTLAND, Ore. – The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers is seeking public comments on its draft environmental assessment of proposed recreation improvements at Green Peter Reservoir northeast of Sweet Home, Ore.

The proposed improvements include construction or expansion of developed recreational facilities at Whitcomb Creek Park, Moose Creek Park and Trout Creek Campground. They also include permanent closure of dispersed camping on Corps land along Quartzville Road to Milepost 17.2, just beyond Trout Creek.

Implementation of the dispersed camping closure would begin in 2014. Construction and expansion of recreational facilities could begin as early as 2014, depending on funding and other factors.

The draft environmental assessment of the proposed improvements is available for public review and comment on the Corps’ Portland District website at

The proposed work is the first phase of implementing the 2011 Green Peter Reservoir Recreation Plan developed by the Corps and Linn County Parks to improve recreation and environmental conditions in the area and ensure compliance with Corps regulations. The plan is available on the Linn County Parks website at

Green Peter Dam and Reservoir is one of 13 dam and reservoir projects operated by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers in the Willamette Basin.
