April 2005 – Entrance into The Point RV Campground that was brand new when I visited. I sure look forward to staying here again next time I’m in this area!
Every site offers great views of the lake and mountains. It’s nice to be somewhere more out in the open with greater space between sites where the stars and moon are better visible. Once again I was reminded that one of the things I treasure most about RVing is always having the comfort and familiarity of home while being able to change my backyard view whenever I have the urge.
This is my view looking out from my RV door. I just love having a lake as my backyard! This is a GREAT bird watching area and that’s always one of my favorite nature shows. I’ve watched ospreys hover attentively high above the lake, then dive-bomb into the water, most of the time emerging carrying fish in their claws celebrating with a victory cry as they fly over my house.
Here’s my site #10 seen from the upper tier of sites.
I never got tired of gazing out at this view, but these morning moments were pretty special. The water was mirror-like calm and the low wispy clouds still hanging low on the mountains made me happy to wake up to such peace and quiet. However, my neighbors tell me this is a popular lake for water skiing in the late summer, so the quiet doesn’t last. I was also surprised to hear that the temperatures reach into the 100’s in August!
Site 5 (the only pull through in this row). Notice the snow still on the mountains on April 10. It was incredibly beautiful, but I’m really ready for some warmer weather about now. It feels like it’s been forever since I’ve been comfortable without at least a sweater.
From the upper tier Site #27, this is looking down on Site #11, right next door to me. You can see the nice space between sites and the great views.
I really enjoyed my walks along the lake. The trails here are wonderful!

Malia’s 2 cents: I really enjoyed my stay here very much. Great views and nice places to walk around the lake, birds and squirrels galore – all the elements that make “camping” fun. I didn’t realize until I actually moved here, though, that you do have to really check out the sites for being level.
Most aren’t a problem, but even though #10 looked okay to me, I had to put blocks under the jacks to make it level and still be able to reach the utilities. It looks like the ones on the upper tier have a greater slope to them, also. In my opinion, the best sites for views from motor homes are 5, 19, 20, 21 and 22. For 5th wheels with rear windows for the views, you have a much wider choice.
Reservations – If you’re arriving within 14 days, you can’t do online reservations. Call the Parks office at (541) 774-8183 for available sites on a first-come, first-served basis.
From their website – The Point RV Park features 32 sites with full hookups, overlooking beautiful shoreline on the lake’s north end. Each site offers water, 50-amp electrical service, sewer, and 14′ x 50′ pads to accommodate larger RV’s. For a more natural experience, set up camp in one of the 42 tent sites at the Oak Slope Campground.
