Fishing and angling are available at Row River, below the Dorena Dam, and in Dorena Lake itself. Fishermen have caught both trout and catfish in Dorena Lake, and rainbow and cutthroat trout in Row River. Dorena Lake is also famous for its windsurfing.

Golfers have three courses to choose from - Middlefield Village Golf Course, along the Row River, Hidden Valley Golf course at the foot of Mount David, and Emerald Valley Golf Course, located 10 miles north of Cottage Grove in Creswell.

Visiting art galleries, specialty shops and antique shops is a favorite pastime in Cottage Grove. Many of the shops are within walking distance of each other, making it a perfect place for that day out for browsing from shop to shop.

    The Bohemia Mining District, located past the Dorena Reservoir, is the site of a mid-ninteenth century gold rush. Covered bridges, abandoned mines and ghost towns such as Bohemia City can be toured by vehicle.

    There is also an extensive exhibit on the Bohemia Mining District in the Cottage Grove Historical Museum (541-942-3963). Check with the Cottage Grove Ranger Station (541-942-5591) before visiting the District, as it is important not to trespass on the active mining claims that still exist in the area.
