7 Parks near Bend, Oregon

This campground is more of a fishing resort. It is woodsy which I liked; however, the site we were in was narrow. My biggest complaint was the drinking water! It smelled and tasted very bad! We even filtered it three times! To bathe in it it, left you smelly. The laundry only had cold water and of course the water made the clothes smelly. The lake was very beautiful with the Three Sisters mountains in the back ground. - mivo49

First, this park is not in Bend. It is about 37 miles SW of Bend. Do not trust your GPS. Use their directions. This is not an RV resort, but it is a very nice campground. Our site backed up to the lake where we saw bald eagles and osprey. You can see snow covered mountains too. We couldn't stay the entire month we booked unfortunately because their power was not reliable. We did have LTE Verizon coverage in our spot which really surprised us for the location. I don't think all spots were this fortunate. We work from our rig, so this is important to us along with power. The owner told us the power was installed 35 years ago and couldn't confirm its reliability, so we had to leave after two nights unfortunately. On check-in, we weren't charged the $1 fee, and the balance was refunded when we had to leave early. The store and surrounding grounds were in tip top shape. If you do stay at this campground, you would be wise to have a power monitoring system on your rig. We would consider returning. It's a great location. You are remote, so just be prepared for it. It reminded me of places we'd tent and popup camped in the past. It had that vibe. - 2Fliers

Agree with previous reviews. We wanted to advise people that there are no refunds less than 2 weeks prior to your visit...that seems kind of hard nosed. The resort does not take credit cards unless they take an extra $1.00 from you for the service and they do not take checks. There is a good Wi-Fi hot spot at the store. This is essentially a forest service type of spot with hookups. It has many trees, is a short walk to the lake and has boats to rent. The owners are very nice. I believe they can fit any size rig into most spaces. - saturn7

Very disappointed that hot tub was not working. Cable was off and on. Park was clean but not a $69 Park. - Crbus

This is a beautiful park. Lots of grass and trees. It's quiet and so peaceful. The management is good and the grounds are well maintained. - Jo Ann Hobbs

This is probably the nicest site we have ever been in out of the 300 or so places we have visited. I wish I could attach a picture. All of the sites are spacious and well kept. Besides the 23ft x 72ft cobblestone area there is another 25ft of grass between you and your neighbor plus a large grass area behind. Our site is #481 Platinum which has no neighbor on our patio side, just forest. The other nice thing that we particularly like is there are no kids on this street. Don't get me wrong, I have nothing against kids. I have some plus grand kids. But, sometimes a peaceful site is nice. The park has silver, gold and platinum sites and are different rates. They all have the 23x72 cobblestone pads. Mostly, the rate difference relates to availability to amenities which we really didn't use.
It is expensive so I understand why some give it lower ratings. I am rating it at the highest value to me as I have a very nice big rig and can afford it. You do indeed get what you pay for here. - DGHenry

Agree with previous campers, it is just a parking lot with power for 8 or so rigs. However, the sites have been newly blacktopped, re-striped and are a bit wider. Need to use jack pads on the new blacktop. Asked about the rv park plans and was told original plans were for a full service rv park, however the amount of money the City of Bend wanted made it impossible for the lodge, so parking lot it will remain. Little train noise, but no highway noise; nice, convenient safe spot for overnight or to visit area. Would definitely stay again. - Lawsons

Per previous reviews, the sites are extremely narrow and sloped forward - we needed 6-inch blocks to level up. It is best to arrive before 5pm when cars start to park across from the sites, making backing in even harder. Despite these drawbacks, the location is perfect for visiting Bend for a fraction of the price of nearby parks. The Lodge is very welcoming and has great activities and food throughout the week. We would stay here again. - Mingo Papa

Bend Elks: This seems less about hospitality and more about revenues. Just paint eight white stripes on the parking lot and install eight 30Amp posts. There is no restroom, shower, gym, lawn, picnic table, or host. Not a tree has been planted for shade or a faucet run near the 'sites'. At night, the obnoxious lights around the parking lot are impossible to completely block out. Makes one wonder if it's a safe neighborhood. There is noticeable traffic noise. On the upside, the wifi is good, it's convenient to Hwys 97 and 20, and there is good shopping nearby. - L. Allen

Park staff was very nice. Campsites throughout the park were paved with trees, grass, a picnic table, and cable TV. Family restrooms and showers were clean. We camped overnight. - sc river ratz

This park has wifi. its the best choice for the price in Bend. Convenient location. Some spaces allow for roof top sat. #330, ask when you call. Manager very nice. OK for pets, grassy walk areas, but no park. Bend has fantastic off leash dog parks in various locations, worth a visit!! Not a resort park but handy for visiting this great city. - gardener

We stayed here with Coast to Coast. I understand some of the poor reviews, but really overall we liked it. We knew in advance that we wouldn't have sewer or 50 amp and we planned accordingly. We chose site 66, which we pulled in nose first and had a great view of the pond just a few feet in front of our big window. We think the best site for Coast to Coast people. Many others weren't level. The pool was far from the RV spaces and we chose to drive. It is a big and deep (8 ft.) indoor pool. We had it to ourselves and really enjoyed it. There is a lot of playground equipment, mini golf, ect. These are nice amenities, but need a little better upkeep. We did not use the bathrooms or laundry so I have no opinion about that. The drive to town was an easy 5 - 10 minutes. We will stay here again! - Fishen4trout

I am giving this such a low score because I was not happy at all, if you have coast to coast do not bother ,we were not told by cc or the lady when we drove up what cc gets until we got to our sites .cc is able to stay in the area by the pond which is full of kept and geese poop. You do. It have sewer hook up only members of this park, cc fails to tell you that when u make reservations and yes I asked, the lady who checked us in seemed to have an attitude when we asked questions, cc is only allowed washer and dryer in rec room, which has one of each, not allowed to use other, don't know why. We stayed one night, it wasn't worth the 10 dollars at all and wifi is 5 a night, don't waste your time move on to somewhere else, - Cdewitt

We visited on a two night 'trial.' The place is very well maintained and everyone we met was very friendly and helpful. The pool is indoors and quite large, but a long way from the campsites. They have a playground for kids and we enjoyed the miniature golf course which has a western theme. They also have free horseback rides (10 horses) which you have to sign up for in advance. (No spots were open for us since we were here only three days.) The park is HUGE (900 acres) and very quiet with no trains or traffic noise. (Always a plus!) We would definitely stay here again. - clarksark

I love this park! I have stoped here multiple times as an overnight on the trip from Montana to California.
The spaces are nestled in the trees. There is plenty of woods between sites.
The only thing that was inconvenient for me was that the Welcome Center ranger goes off duty around 4, so when I arrive at 5 or 6 there is a bit of a wait for someone to check me in.
The staff are cheerful and friendly.
I stayed in this park off-season. So I didn't have any neighbors. Even if this park were full, there would be plenty of trees in my site to keep my dog happy.
The park is well maintained and clean.
I will be back here for sure! - StormRunner

Enjoyed our stay. Lots of trees and space between sites. Felt a lot like a state park. Would have given a higher rating if there was WiFi at the sites. During the season which begins in May, I believe, there appear to be lots of activities. It was very quiet when we were there. - Vista Queen
Sep 2014 - $1.00
The rate reflects Thousand Trail membership. The outdoor pool and Jacuzzi are spotless and worth the stay. The park address is wrong, the staff knows it and have been unable to correct it. The park is in the town of Sunriver, not Bend. This causes issues for anyone using GPS. I would stay here again if in the area. - Tranquilty1

Tumalo State Park is a unique green oasis amongst the drier climate of Bend. Tumalo Creek is perfect for tubing on a hot summers day and it is definitely a local favorite for picnics and day trips. The campground is located just across the street and is also nestled in the trees, but the forest here is not overly thick so be prepared to be getting some sun. The RV sites are fairly close together and are all back-in, but paved. Clean bathrooms as well as a solar shower-house! Best time to use these showers is late afternoon, early evening since the nights here do cool off into the low 50's so your morning shower will be chilly. Very close drive to Bend and all this beautiful area has to offer. Be sure to visit the Newberry Volcanic Monument about a half hours drive south of Bend. - Addicted Camper

Very nice state park. Not much visual separation, but sites are big and comfortable. Free showers, clean restrooms. Good location on the Deschutes River. - Don & Sonja

Sites were a little closer together than we would like, but still a very clean, well maintained park. Our site was immaculate when we pulled in. The kids loved all the opportunities to explore, including the large hill on the east side and, of course, the river. Spots seemed easy to back into - ours certainly way. - Dropped68
