Campground Camping

On the shore of Lake Billy Chinook at 2000 feet elevation, Perry South features 64 camping sites, most first come, first served. However, we have put some of these sites into the reservation system starting in 2005. This is a very popular campground. Try to get here early on Friday or before, if you are coming for the weekend. During Memorial Weekend and during the heart of the season, after July 4, campers often come on Wednesday to get the best sites. The campground has pump water. A day use area is available as well as a boat launch and a fish cleaning station.
