Sheep Bridge might be best known for its huge sites that are great for a large family outing or someone with a large RV that wants to make sure there is plenty of room for his vehicle. On the Deschutes River above Wickiup Reservoir, this campground offers excellent fishing opportunities and is also a great area for bird watching and waterfowl hunting.

Camping & Cabins
Sites 1-3 are huge and have been made into group sites, but could be used as a medium group site each with parking for up to about five large RVs or more and up to 30 people. Each has isolation from others in the area. The other sites are smaller but still have plenty of room. The campground has a boat ramp on the Deschutes River that is free for camper's use. There are a total of 23 sites that are popular, but the campground is rarely full and is a good one to go to if you are getting into the mountains late in the weekend at a busy time of the summer.
