ATTENTION: On May 29 to 30, 2015 there will be a fundraising event for the Wildland Firefighter Foundation taking place at the North Wickiup Boat Launch. This event will have approximately 50 to 75 boats launching out of both Gull Point Boat Ramp and North Wickiup Boat Ramp. There will be approximately 150 contestants along with another 300 people coming for the auction and live band event after the tournament. The live band, auction and vendors will also be located at the North Wickiup Boat Ramp so some noise, some boat traffic and some foot traffic may impact the Gull Point Campground.

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.
