The Cove Palisades State Park is a year-round recreational destination for the entire family. Located in our high desert region, the weather is sunny and warm in the summer months and chilly but generally mild in the winter. The park is situated among towering cliffs that surround beautiful Lake Billy Chinook.

The park features myriad water recreational opportunities, a full-service campground, store, restaurant, marina and rental services. Not interested in camping? Rustic lakeshore log cabins are available. Nature lovers will find nearly 10 miles of hiking trails that give access to areas rich in wildlife and splendid scenery.

The park is home to two popular special events: the Lake Billy Chinook Day in September (a clean-up and festival) and the annual Eagle Watch in February.

Learn about the unusual and unique attributes of this premier recreational and natural resource area ... at water level! Kayak tours are led weekly during the summer, and on select weekends at other times of the year.

July 27 Family favorite by Divalgr
We love this park! All of our friends and family look forward to this each year. E-loop is the spot.
November 3 Was a camphost there by ajp
Could not even take it all in with 30 days there. The views were breath taking. Eagles crying and Turkey valtures and thousands of deer. We did not get out on to the lake but will if we get called back. A must see!!
June 26 AMAZING!!!
Our family has cammped here every summer for the past 20 years. There are about 30 of us so we get a group camp. It has gotten VERY hard to get one (group camp) any more, word has gotten out about how wonderful this park is.
June 17 Too Much To List!!!
By far one of the most scenic of all man made reservoirs. Ship Rock is a must see. If you like to sight see via boat, take the trip up the Metolius arm of the lake, as far as your boat will possibly fit, and see what the bottom of the river looks like. If you think too long about going, your thinking wrong, and just need to go!!!
