Tenmile Lakes is one of Oregon's largest and most popular recreation lakes.  Fishing is superb year round with species including large mouth bass, trout, crappie, bluegill, and catfish.  Tenmile Creek feeds into the ocean which provides great steelhead runs in the spring and fall.  The lake is also a favorite for water sports with plenty of large open areas for water skiing, sailing, swimming and more.   The location  between Coos Bay/North Bend and Winchester Bay in the Oregon Dunes provides easy access to some of the largest dunes on the Oregon Coast.  Deep sea ocean fishing, clamming and crabbing are only minutes away. 

 Lakeside, on the shores of Tenmile Lakes, is a pleasant community offering a charming shopping area and basic services.  The natural surroundings are the perfect backdrop for celebration and Lakeside is known for its spectacular 4th of July, Drag Boat Races, and the new Steamboaters gathering.  For even more fun and excitement, NorthBend/Coos Bay is just 10 miles south and offers plenty of nightlife and the Mills Casino Indian Gaming facility.  If you're looking for an Oregon Coast vacation destination that offers a little of everything, look no further than Lakeside and Tenmile Lakes!
