The Scout Lake Group Campground is located on the shores of its namesake lake in the Deschutes National Forest in Sisters, Oregon. Of the campground's ten sites, there is one single-family site, six double sites, and three triple-family sites. If a group rents the entire campground, it will easily accommodate up to 100 people and 50 vehicles. The campground sits among tall conifer trees, and nearby you'll see ancient remnants of volcanic activity in the area. The Scout Lake Day Use Area is in walking distance from the campground, and the beach is just 50 yards away.
Scout Lake is a dog-friendly campground if your dog is on a leash and cleaned up after, but there are a few important things to keep in mind. Due to sanitation and safety concerns, dogs cannot accompany their owners to the Scout Lake Day Use Area, which happens to be the main draw for most campers. If you bring your dog to the Scout Lake Day Use Area, you could face a $100 fine. A $5 day pass per vehicle is required for the Scout Lake Day Use Area.
Each campsite at Scout Lake has a picnic table and a campfire ring with a grill. Drinking water is available, as are vault toilets, but there are no showers. All sites are non-electric, and there are no hookups or dump stations for RVs. Tent-only sites cost $18 a day, double sites cost $36, and triple sites run for $54.
If you'd like to enjoy non-motorized boating activities like fishing, kayaking, swimming, or canoeing, Scout Lake is the place for you! If you're looking for a lake that allows motorboats, head to Suttle Lake which is less than a mile from the campground. For a dog-friendly activity during your stay, drive the 66-mile Cascade Lakes Scenic Byway through mountain peaks and alpine lakes.If you hold a Golden Age or Golden Access Passport, be sure to inquire about a 50% discount on a single campsite when you reserve your spot at this furrific campground!
