Pearrygin Lake Campout and Field Trips

  • Pearrygin Lake State Park (map)

Steven Harper, President

Our twelfth annual NCAS Campout will be held at Pearrygin Lake State Park group camp with great people, great weather and of course great birding. There is lots of room for people with tents. Vans or small pickup toppers are allowed in the parking area. RVs and trailers are not allowed, however reservations can be made in the Pearrygin Lake State Park Campground. Picnic tables and grates are available for cooking (bring your own food) and water and a toilet are on site.  A swimming area is also on site to enjoy after a warm day of birding. Showers and full-service bathrooms can be accessed 1 ½ miles away in the main campground. Reservations can also be made at motels in the Winthrop area for those not wanting to camp.

Of course the primary focus of the campout is birds. Field trips will be scheduled for Saturday and Sunday.  Campers are free to roam on their own on Thursday and Friday or set up impromptu field trips. There will be plenty of time for lounging and enjoying the sunny and clear weather and for visiting. In past years several people have brought their musical instruments and we’ve had a sing-along on one of the evenings. Other entertainment is also appreciated! Cost is $10/night for each party.

Reservations are required.  To make a reservation or if you have any questions please email or call Steven Harper at or 360-650-9065.
