“jaw dropping”
Reviewed 30 July 2014

I have been nearly everywhere in Oregon and Lake Billy Chinook is at the top of the list of must see's! The views from the lake is amazing with the cliffs towering over you. we rented a houseboat from the rentals with a group of friends and had an amazing time. The only downfall i would say is that our houseboat had issues and had to get worked on for nearly a full day (they didnt have a replacement for us so we had to wait) but they did comp all of our gas for the trip and gave us a free jet ski rental for a whole day. will definately be taking more vacations to LBC!

“A great week of swimming, fishing and fun with family!”
Reviewed 19 July 2014 via mobile

We rented a 12 person houseboat for 3 families from Lake Billy Chinook Houseboats and had a fabulous time! Caught lots of fish and beautiful views of the Metolius, Deschutes and Crooked Rivers. Spectacular rock formations and saw lots of wildlife including 3 bald eagles. We rented a ski boat to pull inner tubes with kids for half day at Cove Palisades Marina which rounded out the week nicely. A great adventure with many memories!

“Best Ever”
Reviewed 16 July 2014

I have been coming here since 2012 and I love the camp grounds. Everything is so peaceful and clean! The campsites are clean and great. It is close enough to town where you can run out and grab anything you ma have forgotten. The lake is just wonderful. Wakeboarding is AWESOME on it! Cannot wait for Aug 2014!!

“Beautiful location”
Reviewed 1 July 2014

We camped at Cove Palisades State Park for a biking weekend. Wonderful central location and lots of options for rides, sight seeing, hiking and dining. Large campsites with electricity and water. Hot showers.

“Luxury on the lake”
Reviewed 23 June 2014 via mobile

We had the best time ever with the team at lake billy houseboats. They were so phenomenal to work with and everyone was right on top of helping us with anything we needed, especially Brian. I work in hotels and know that it's not easy to pull off what they do, but they do an amazing job at it: boats in great condition, knowledgeable and eager associates, organized and fun!
