Gull Point Boating Site

Area Status: Open
This area is Open
 

The reservoir covers an area on the Deschutes River which was known as the Wickiup's. It was a camping area for Native Americans during the fall. Wickiup Dam was started in 1939, and was completed in 1949. Wickiup Reservoir is very rich, highly productive, relatively warm water and cooler deep channels generate some of the finest fishing in Central Oregon.

This boating site is within the Gull Point Campground. There's a paved parking area for this site and a toilet. Visitors in the fall may not be able to access the water from this site due to lower water levels. Contact the Deschutes National Forest for more information.
