Ten Mile Lakes
Ten Mile Lakes is one of Oregon's largest and most popular recreation lakes. Fishing is superb year round. Come catch large mouth bass, trout, crappie, bluegill, and catfish. Ten Mile Creek, which feeds into the ocean, provides great steelhead fishing in the spring and fall. With all the fish that abound, you’re also sure to see lots of birds, maybe even an eagle if you are lucky. If fishing isn't your thing there are large open areas on the lake that are perfect for all types of watercraft sports including: boating, jet skiing, canoeing, and kayaking.
Lakeside is located on the Oregon coast about midway between North Bend and Reedspord, three miles inland from the Pacific Ocean, sheltered from onshore winds by the Oregon National Dunes. Average temperatures in the 60s to 70s in the summer and 50s in the winter. The drive from Eugene is just under two hours. Visitors primarily come to Lakeside for outdoor activities associated with Ten Mile Lakes and the Oregon Dunes National Recreation Area, which include waterskiing, jet skiing, beachcombing, camping, fishing, hunting, boating, hiking, scuba diving, dune riding, wind surfing, horseback riding, swimming, picnicking, and sightseeing.
--Just to be clear, Heron Cove is a made-for-fun, family and pet-oriented, water-and-play-oriented home, and thus NOT for guests specifically in search of a sleek, condo/hotel-like experience. We've had some complaints from guests who expected a modern place, which it is not.
--Heron Cove is fairly remote, located six miles from Lakeside, the last two along well-maintained gravel road. It is complicated to find for the first time after dark.
--There is NO TURNAROUND at the house so trailers of all kinds should be left at Sunlake Marina (1/4 mile away).
--The walkway from the boat house up to the house is rigorous (ramp and twenty steps) so likely not ideal for the elderly or infirm.
--water is certified clean well water, which in this area has a sulphur smell; guests may want to bring their own water for drinking.
