Simax Group Campsite

Simax Group Campground is one of our most popular group campground and for good reason--it is one of the nicest campgrounds in the Deschutes featuring hot shower facilities, a picnic pavillion, and lakefront camping. This site on Crescent Lake is fully accessible for individuals with disabilities. Waterskiing, sailing, windsurfing, hiking, and fishing are the many attractions offered by this lake.
