  • Located on the shore of Wickiup Reservoir in Deschutes National Forest, Gull Point campground offers visitors easy access to an abundance of recreational activities along the Cascade Lakes National Scenic Byway.

    Gull Point Campground offers visitors opportunities for hiking, 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.
