West South Twin Campground is located across the road from the much more crowded South Twin Lake Campground. Despite the fact that pretty much all of the sites within West South Twin are still within reasonable walking distance of the South Twin Lake Resort, it is nowhere near as crowded as South Twin Lake Campground and has far more spacious campgrounds. Despite the name, it is not located on South Twin Lake; however, it is located quite near Wickiup Reservoir and has a small boat ramp to the Deschutes channel of it, which provides easy access to the rest of the large reservoir.
All of the 24 sites at West South Twin are roughly the same in nature – they are all very well shaded and are all pretty close together, although not nearly as condensed as South Twin Campground or nearby Gull Point Campground. None of them have direct beach access to Wickiup Reservoir, but some do back up to the wetlands of it, which gives campers there the impression they are least camping near it. Reservations are accepted at about half of the campsites at West South Twin, although the website classifies some as “tent only” campsites, which is not exactly accurate, as each of those still have driveways that should accommodate most vehicles, including small RVs.
Visitors should also note that day use facilities, while present, are quite limited for boaters on Wickiup Reservoir. Powerboats are prohibited at nearby South Twin Lake altogether, but boaters for Wickiup should put in at Gull Point Campground where parking is far more abundant and the boat launch is in far better condition, as well as being in a better location on the lake for recreational boaters.
