Sarah Helmick State Recreation Site provides opportunities for picnicking, group picnics, hiking, fishing and wildlife watching.
The Recreation Site offers two reservation picnic areas for groups up to 200 people. Electricity, water, picnic tables and restrooms are provided at each site. There is plenty of shade from the bigleaf maples that tower above you. The area provides a quiet spot to walk along the trails that border the Luckiamute River, with plenty of birds and native plant life to investigate.
Vital stats: There is no fee to use this park. A fee is charged for the group picnic shelter. Contact Oregon State Parks for up to date fee information.
: Climate in this region changes with elevation. The area receives a high amount of precipitation. Much of the precipitation comes from October to April in the form of rain at the low elevations and as wet heavy snow in the higher elevations. Winter temperatures are normally cool at the lower elevations and cold at the higher elevations. Although snow is possible in the lowest elevations, it is infrequent and does not stay on the ground for long. Late spring, summer and early autumn bring the best chance for clear, sunny days and bring moderate temperatures.
