Status: Open through Tue Oct 08 2013 Season Dates
OverviewLocated on the shore of Wickiup Reservoir in Deschutes National Forest, Gull Point campground offers visitors some of the most stunning scenery in central Oregon and easy access to an abundance of recreational activities in the Cascade region.
The campground is a favorite among visitors to the area, and sites are scattered among a mixed, yet open conifer forest, giving sunshine a chance to filter through. Several sites sit on along the waterfront.
The reservoir covers an area on the Deschutes River that was historically used by Native Americans during the fall. Several tribes throughout the area built "wickiups," shelters made from reeds, grass, or brush, while living in the area.
The unique location of Gull Point campground offers visitors opportunities to hike shoreline trails, shaded forests and nearby alpine vistas.
Gull Point campground offers spacious campsites for both tent and RV camping.
Lava Lands Visitor Center in nearby Bend, Oregon, is a great starting point for visitors to learn about the diverse landscape and history of the area through interpretive programs and exhibits.
