Discover the most magical spots to pitch your tent or park your rig on your next Lake Cochrane adventure.
Discover Lake Cochrane's serene waters and vibrant outdoor activities.
Get out your swimming outfit, because we’ve got a place for you. The Lake Cochrane Recreation Area is snuggled in between Lake Cochrane and Lake Oliver, and it covers 88 acres of outdoor fun. The lake is positively delightful, with clear, spring-fed waters that are almost magnetic in their awesomeness. The boat ramp makes getting into the water easy peasy, and there’s a fishing pole checkout if you don’t have your own. There’s more to the area than water, though! The campsites are plentiful, there’s a rental cabin available, and exploring by foot or bike is always an option. There’s also a playground for the kiddos, but if you want to bust out your monkey bar moves, we’re in total support.
The ideal time to visit Lake Cochrane Recreation Area is during the warm summer months, from June to August, when the park is in full bloom and the lake's waters are inviting. Conversely, the winter season can be quite harsh, with limited access and activities due to snow and ice.
