*The picnic shelter associated with this campground has been removed for safety reasons. There are currently no plans for reconstruction.
Please be aware, if you plan on camping with a dog, DOGS ARE NOT ALLOWED at the Scout Lake Day Use Area adjacent to the campground. Scout Lake is one of the few recreation sites on the Deschutes National Forest where dogs are not allowed. The two primary reasons dogs are not allowed in the swimming area are sanitation and safety concerns related to the high numbers of people, including young children, who visit the lake. Sanitation is a concern because no outlet exists for the small lake and water quality becomes an issue, especially later in the season as the water warms.
If you want to camp in an area where dogs are allowed, nearby Suttle Lake offers four day use areas where dogs are welcomed as well as campground sites. Visitors with dogs are reminded that leashes are required in all developed recreation sites.
People may be fined $100 if they bring onto or possess a dog in a swimming area where dogs are prohibited (36 CFR 261.17(k)).
