Overview

Overview

Scout Lake Group Campground sits on the shores of its namesake in Deschutes National Forest. Its proximity to high alpine lakes, lush forests and towering peaks in nearby wilderness areas make it a popular destination for outdoor enthusiasts.

Natural Features:

The campground sits at 3,600 feet in the high desert region of central Oregon in a towering mixed conifer forest. Nearby landscapes showcase the unique volcanic activity throughout the region, and visitors can explore extinct volcanoes, calderas and lava flows typical in the area.

The surrounding undeveloped wilderness, clean streams and diverse forests support an abundance of wildlife, including deer, squirrel, trout, salmon and a variety of migratory birds.

Recreation:

Water sport enthusiasts of all types will enjoy the opportunities available at Scout Creek Lake and nearby Suttle Lake. Only non-motorized watercraft are allowed on Scout Creek, but water skiing, fishing and boating are popular at Suttle Lake, less than one mile away.

Nearby trails and a picturesque shoreline offer visitors opportunities for hiking, birding, wading and swimming at Scout Lake, and a large beach is located just steps away.

Facilities:

The campground offers 10 group campsites, two of which are tent only. The entire campground will comfortably accommodate up to 100 guests.

All sites are equipped with tables and campfire rings with grills.

A large day-use area and parking for 50 vehicles make this area perfect for large parties and family functions.

Nearby Attractions:

Visitors can explore wilderness areas, rivers, lakes, reservoirs and approximately 1,600 miles of trails that comprise nearly 2.5 million acres the Deschutes National Forest and the adjacent Ochoco National Forest.

Lava Lands Visitor Center in nearby Bend, Oregon, and the Newberry National Volcanic Monument are popular attractions as well.

Visitors will also enjoy traveling the Cascade Lakes Scenic Byway, known as Oregon's Highway in the Sky, which climbs into the clouds on a 66-mile drive through the Cascade Mountain range, weaving through snow-capped peaks and alpine lakes.
