Sheep Bridge Boating Site

Wickiup Reservoir is very rich, highly productive, relatively warm water and cooler deep channels generate some of the finest fishing in Central Oregon.

This is a primitive boat ramp located within the Sheep Bridge Campground. Later in the season, in autumn, the ramp becomes mostly unusable as water levels are too low.

There is also limited parking for pick-ups and trailers at this site.
