Location

Much of the town of Detroit and the surrounding forest was destroyed by the 2020 wildfires, and as of September, 2022 much of the area is still closed. Check the US Forest Service website for current status.

Just north of the town of Detroit, this is the only developed day-use site on Breitenbush Rd, with heavy usage in summer. To reach the area from SR 22 in Detroit, go north 1 mi on FR 46.

Habitat and Birds

Look for ducks and geese, including Hooded and Common Merganser, plus American Dipper and Spotted Sandpiper, in and along the bay. Yellow Warbler and Common Yellowthroat can be found in the brushy areas.
