LAKE SIMTUSTUS CURRENT EVENTS

NOTICE - NOTICE - NOTICE!!

FOR THE 2014 SEASON

The Oregon Department Of Fish And Wildlife has just announced that starting
on January 1, 2014 Lake Simtustus will be open for fishing all year long!
That means that you can fish Lake Simtustus every day of the year instead
of having to wait for the last week of April.

OKTOBERFEST

Last year was by far the best event we have ever had. The food was so delicious, I said maybe we could have German food for the 4th of July as well. Everyone had a great time. We set up a TV outside for The Ducks game and the Beavers later that night.
Fun Fun Fun. And we have even posted a video of the world famous "Schulte Family Chicken Dance"!

8-2012 Fishing Report:
Mikey caught another big Bass right out in front of the park. He fishes here a lot and you'll see him often right in front of the RV Park. He catches all kinds of fish but is fast becoming a Bass expert.

Sam Templin caught this big Bull Trout
just after opening week.
 

Dan MacNeil with a 25 1/2" 5 lb. Bull Trout that he caught right in front of the Park. Dan held it up for a quick photo and immediately released It so it's likely still there now! Bull Trout at Lake Simtustus must be released if they are under 24" in length.

SMALLMOUTH TROUT
 

This young lady holds limits of Rainbow Trout & Steelhead that her party caught June 19th. I saw one group after another come to the docks all day every day I was there (Wed. thru Sun Jun - 22) with limits of Trout and Kokanee. One of the larger fish was an 8 lb. Brown Trout caught by Mike Miller.

SMALLMOUTH BASS

Youngster catches large Bass fishing from
the shore right in front of the campground

 
 

12 year old Mikey caught this 17" 2 lb. 6 oz. Smallmouth Bass right in front of the Lake Simtustus RV Park & Fish Camp fishing from the shore. This was not a "lucky catch" by any means. Mikey visits the RV Park often and is an avid angler. He is known to fish from early AM to evening darkness. I had the pleasure of meeting him on my last trip to the lake and found him to be a very serious about his fishing. I showed him a box of about 100+ of my lures and he could name most of them and also speak to the characteristics of them all. If you make it to Lake Simtustus RV park & Fish Camp and want to know how to catch Trout, Kokanee, Bass or squaw fish from the shore right in front of your RV or even from a boat, look for this young lad and ask him for his secrets and it will be time well spent.

     What a great place to call a vacation home. Set-up in your favorite site, or store your RV and boat, and save on those extra miles.
For those of you that are full time RVers, resort living at our lake is a wonderful experience. Fishing, shopping 10 minutes away, laundry facilities, and discount rates in the winter months.

We are your new owners, operators and hosts. We are Debi & Carl Johnson. We can't wait to meet more new friends this upcoming year so you're all welcome to stop by and say hi. You'll be glad when you see what we're doing here.
Enjoy beautiful wildlife, high desert vistas, fresh air, peace and quiet, and only a 20 minute drive to Madras.

     Each level has a golf cart to share for shuttling between levels. The 4th of July is a special time here at Lake Simtustus RV Park and we dress up the carts for a special parade. Join us next year and join in all the fun. There is more than just fishing to do here and we try to make sure that there is always lots of fun and relaxation available here.

FUN FOR ALL!
 This is the Lance Camper group. They have been coming to Lake Simtustus for a long time now.
The entire group comes in June and most of them stays for the week. 

Lake Simtustus RV Park is the The Only Full Hookup RV Park on the Lake

Lake Front RV Park
Central Oregon RV Parks and resorts offer great camping right on the lake. When you choose a camping destination in Central Oregon choose an RV park that has full lake view spots, full hook-ups and lake front RV Sites. The Lake Simtustus RV Resort is located in Central Oregon just a short drive from Portland, Oregon and in the middle of some of the most beautiful country and weather you'll find anywhere in the country. Fishing is great, sightseeing and relaxing are super and the new campground hosts are the friendliest you'll find anywhere.
