Covered Bridge Regatta

  • Hosted By: Oregon Association of Rowers
  • 2016 Registered Regatta


From I-5, take Hwy. 58(exit 188A) east, 13 miles to Dexter Lake.
Turn left at the white covered bridge, to Lowell.
Turn left at Boundary Rd.(becomes Pengra Rd.),0.8 miles to Lowell Park.


    Shell trailers and full-size buses will park in the parking lot at Lowell State Park as in
previous years.  Additionally, each club will be issued one permit for parking one additional
vehicle in the Park.  All other vehicles will park in the town of Lowell. Parking is illegal on
Jasper-Lowell/ Pengra Road.
     For cars without permits, a turn-around area located immediately to the right on entering
Lowell State Park will allow brief unloading of equipment and small boats on car top carriers.
These vehicles will then be directed to the town of Lowell for parking. A free shuttle-bus from
the town of Lowell to Lowell State Park will run from 6:00 AM to 6:00 PM.  The shuttle may not
provide for timely arrival at the coach’s and coxswain’s meeting, which begins at 6:15 AM.
Please plan accordingly. Walking from the town of Lowell to the marina area at Lowell State
Park takes about 10 to 15 minutes. Parking signs and attendants in the town of Lowell will help
you find parking.
    The one parking permit for each team will be distributed in the team packet and is
available for pickup upon arrival at the park entrance or at the coach’s and coxswain’s meeting
at 6:15 AM Saturday morning. Parking permits must be displayed on the dashboard for
entrance and during parking at Lowell Park. There will be NO EXCEPTIONS to the parking
permit system.
    Last minute questions regarding parking are referred to Jon Juhlin at 541 517 6693.
Thank you for your help with this change of parking for this year’s Covered Bridge Regatta.
