Overview

Overview

Located 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.

Natural Features:

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.

At full pool, Wickiup is a beautiful, pine-edged lake, with some willows and sandy beach areas. At low water, steep soil and gravel banks drop abruptly to the water.

This is one of central Oregon's best wildlife viewing sites, attracting a variety of nesting and migrating birds. Fantastic nearby peaks, lava flows and old-growth forests also provide visitors with a variety of landscapes.

Wetlands, diverse forests, and rocky slopes near the campground provide a necessary habitat for shorebirds, porcupine, deer, bats and the occasional black bear.

Recreation:

The unique location of Gull Point campground offers visitors opportunities to hike shoreline trails, shaded forests and nearby alpine vistas.

Visitors also enjoy boating, canoeing, swimming and fishing.

The reservoir's relatively warm water and cooler deep channels generate some of the best fishing in Central Oregon. The area is renowned for its brown trout, often reaching 20 pounds, with normal catches in the 5 to 8 pound range. The reservoir also sustains good numbers of kokanee and coho salmon and decent populations of rainbow trout, brook trout, whitefish and chub.

Facilities:

Gull Point campground offers spacious campsites for both tent and RV camping.

Picnic areas, drinking water, flush toilets and a dump station help visitors enjoy the outdoors in a comfortable setting.

There are also two large day-use areas, with boat launches and fish cleaning stations at each.

Nearby Attractions:

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.

Visitors can also explore the Lava River Cave, located in the Newberry National Volcanic Monument. At 5,211 feet in length, the northwest section of the cave is the longest continuous lava tube in Oregon.
