On the Metolius Arm of Lake Billy Chinook, this campground offers easy access to one of the area’s most popular lakes.
You can enjoy fishing and comfortable camping with the convenience of a boat ramp, docks and drinking water while surrounded by the beauty of rugged canyons and a diverse evergreen forest.
The campground features more than 60 campsites in two loops. Many sites can be reserved ahead of time, so plan to arrive early if you hope to land a first-come, first-served site on a hot central Oregon weekend.
Motorized boats are allowed on the reservoir, making it easy to cool off with water sports or spend the day fishing for bass, trout, kokanee salmon, whitefish, and the occasional sucker, minnow or dace. The surrounding hills offer glimpses of bald eagles, mule deer, coyote and black-tailed jackrabbit.
The park is located in the Deschutes National Forest. PGE manages this site in partnership with the U.S. Forest Service.
Perry South Campground is open from the Friday before Memorial Day through the second weekend in September.
