Come see Central Oregon’s natural beauty

Eagle’s eye view of the Deschutes River Canyon

Round Butte Overlook Park is a terrific place to picnic and enjoy spectacular views of the Deschutes River Canyon.

From the park, on the rim of canyon, you can look down on Round Butte Dam, Lake Billy Chinook and Lake Simtustus about 400 feet below. It’s a great spot to view wildlife, including bald eagles and ospreys.

In and around the observation building, you’ll find interpretive displays on the Round Butte Hydroelectric Project and Deschutes River fish and wildlife. Learn more about PGE’s efforts to protect fish on the Deschutes River.

The picnic area is reservable and can hold up to 200 people.

The park has barrier-free restrooms and picnic sites.
