Situated on the southwestern shore of Elk Lake, Point Campground is a perfect spot to take in the panoramic and often bluebird views of the nearby Cascades: South Sister, Broken Top and Mount Bachelor.  Like many of Hoodoo Recreation's campgrounds, the facilities are modest with no potable water, a vault toilet and only 9 campsites, although it does have its own boat ramp.  Also, the campground is situated alongside the Cascade Lakes Scenic Byway, so be prepared to hear the relatively light noise of passing cars.

If you'd prefer a more tranquil setting along the lake, consider Little Fawn Campground on the southeastern shore.  This campground doesn't offer the same views as Point Campground does, but it is nestled in a less visited area that is farther from the highway.

I stumbled across your site and was looking at your photos of Point campground. I was surprised to see a photo of our campsite when we were there. I think this was in Sept. 2012. The photo is the one with the black dog in it. Our site has the white truck. I remember that camping trip and the dog well. We were there for a week and everyday he would come and sit in the driveway of our site and watch my little dogs. My little dogs love to camp but for some reason that trip was not so enjoyable for one of them. He was unhappy the entire time we were there. Even letting the Stellar Jays steal his dog food out of his bowl. The only time he was happy was when we were packing up and heading home, lol We love Elk Lake and Point Campground. It's such a beautiful place. Anyway, I thought it was pretty cool that you got a shot of us while we were there. I hope to get back there to camp sometime this summer. :-)
