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. We camped at Tumalo State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Very nice state park. Not much visual separation, but sites are big and comfortable. Free showers, clean restrooms. Good location on the Deschutes River. We camped at Tumalo State Park in a Motorhome.

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. We camped at Tumalo State Park in a Travel Trailer.

I would expect more from an Oregon State Park. It was extremely dusty, the sites afforded no privacy, and sites weren't level. We camped at Tumalo State Park in a Motorhome.

Small campground and some sites are tight for RV with slides. 30 amp service can make things a balancing act. The rangers and camp hosts were fantastic - very friendly and managed campground. We came for a couple of days and stayed almost a week. Bend area offers a lot of trails for bikes or hiking. We would return if we were in the area. We camped at Tumalo State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

The site we were on had fine dirt and was close to the restrooms/sink station. Overall, nice and quiet. We didn't get a chance to see the playground. We heard the managers making the rounds after 10pm for campfires. The staff that greeted us was friendly. Looks like a popular site and would stay here again. We camped at Tumalo State Park in a Tent.

This was a very nice, clean park very close to the Deschutes River. Our site was level enough we didn't need to do anything. There is a very large, day use picnic area right on the river. We were here before school got out so it was not at all crowded but we guess during summer the day use area would be very popular. We would definitely camp here again!

A nice state park, a bit cramped in maneuvering around, but the sites are spacious and well spaced. This is a nice park to overnight or spend a couple of days in. Will stay here again. We camped at Tumalo State Park in a Motorhome.

At this time of year only one loop was open-B loop. There were about 8 hook up campsites in the loop, but had no trouble getting one when we came in at 5pm. Campground was quiet, bathrooms and showers clean. They had solar showers: one available this time of year. We camped at Tumalo State Park in a Motorhome.

This is just another great state park. Right on the Deschutes River, nice quiet setting. We darn near had the whole park to ourselves. There's solar showers (only two were open, because of the season) and really cute yurts too. There's also a nice trail right along the river. We camped at Tumalo State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

We had a great time at this park. Very close to Bend, but with the feel of "real" camping. We had space 67 which is large with lots of privacy. Perimeter sites are much larger and easier to maneuver in to. Be sure to check the length when booking. Campground was immaculate and the camp hosts were great! Would definitely stay here again!

Not big rig friendly. We scratched the RV going in and going out. We tried and tried to get into the site assigned to us but finally left and went someplace else. We were excited about this campground but were disappointed with the dead trees and overgrown weeds and not a blade a of grass anywhere. We camped at Tumalo State Park in a Motorhome.

This state park isn't one we would go back to. It has very thick, talc-like dirt. The sites are too close together, it's more like being in a RV park. No privacy what so ever. Thank goodness the road and spurs were paved. We had good water pressure, power and sewer. Park personnel were friendly along with the hosts. It's close to town and the Deshutes river. Aircard and cell phone had a decent signal but couldn't get our dome satellite in, had to use the portable dish. We were in B loop #17 which was close to the solar showers and restroom. Site was not totally level but didn't have any problems with our levelers. This would be a good overnight stay and that's about it. Not the most attractive state park in Oregon's State Park system. Reservation system charges $5.00 so our stay per night was $24.50: we stayed for 2 nights and that was enough. We camped at Tumalo State Park in a Motorhome.
