10 Parks near Camp Sherman, Oregon
Jun 2011 - $28.00
This is a small very tight friendly park in a great part of the state. Only have some sewer hookups and they are under the rig and not on the side so makes it a little hard to hook up. I have stayed several times and while not my favorite park will more than likely come back due to the location. Satellite is a little hard due to the trees and no cable. Some sites are a little uneven while others are OK. Have several full time run down rigs but that is not that big of a deal. Wi-Fi has a lot of problems and only was able to sigh on for about a hour during our three day stay. No cell coverage or at least on Verizon. - RV Jim of Oregon

This RV resort is a joke. DO NOT STAY HERE! It is the maintenance yard for Hoodoo Recreation Services. Their company trucks and employee private vehicles are parked everywhere including the reserved spots. The sewer connections are conveniently located in the middle of parking site so you have to crawl under your rig to hook up. Electrical post are knocked over and Wi-Fi: forget it. Roads are too narrow for rigs much over 30 ft. The management is unresponsive to complaints about unruly staff. RV'ers be warned. - camper 38

Small park in a nice setting. Right off a Forest Service paved road but real quiet. Short walk to the Metolius River with a lot of fly-fishing. Gravel bike and walking paths across the road from the park. Sites are closer together than I prefer and the roads are extremely tight. The road layout leaves a lot to be desired. When you stop at the dump site you completely close the road. Gravel pad was very close to level. Pad was a bit narrow so you were on the grass when you stepped out of the rig. Also a number of long term occupants but things were neat and clean. Restrooms neat and clean but men’s shower stalls were cramped. I could never get the Wi-Fi to work even though it said I had a good signal. Office staff seemed very pleasant. Overall enjoyed the stay here biggest negative was narrow main road. - SWID

South Shore is your typical US Forest Service campground. There really aren't any amenities. The campground is situated along the south edge of Suttle Lake 14 miles NW of Sisters, Oregon. Some of the sites overlook the lake and a few go down to the water's edge. There is an area with a dock for launching boats and a trail around the lake. The area has many bird species including osprey and bald eagle. Most site are large and the campground is full of trees. The restrooms are concrete buildings that were very clean. Water is available from several spigots throughout the campground. We plan on staying here again. - Another brick in the wall

This is a standard forest service campground with a pit toilet in the center but no frills. There are lots of tall trees but a few spots have several hours of sunlight if you need to recharge solar panels. The loop road is paved; the sites are dirt. Each site has an old picnic table and fire pit with a metal grate. The sites are huge and your neighbors won't be close. Some road noise from highway 22. One loop is for tents; one loop for RVs. More scenic sites are nearby along the Metolius River, near Camp Sherman. - John Mosley

Walking distance to town, restaurants, shopping. In the middle of town but we had deer grazing in the morning.
The park is well maintained by the City if Sisters. The park roads are paved. The pet areas are green and pretty large. Plenty of room for kids to play ball, ride a bike or roller skate. Some of the area was shade and others had more sunlight. The best thing is it's right in the little downtown of Sisters. - Scott_OR

We dry camped here. The campground is fairly cramped and shares the restrooms with an adjacent rest area. The showers are for CG guests only. There are several green grass areas in the CG for dog exercise and an abundance of places outside the CG to walk including the beautiful small city of Sisters. If you are reserving ahead of time, make sure to compare the campsite map for the CG with a satellite or map image! Several of the dry camping parking pads have impossible angles for entry and exit and there are large rocks along roadsides that further impede site access. I had one of them. Lots of generators running! All of that said, this CG - in the city - beats the "resort" east of town as a camping experience. - RickB

This is a nice wooded campground a few blocks from the city center. Sisters has great bakeries, coffee shops and antique stores. Next to the campground over a covered wooden bridge is a city grass area hosting city events.
Some sites are quite crowded and open while others like 64-67 were nicer. The restrooms were aging and quite like "public" restrooms. Dump station in the campground was $5. I would return here because of the nice walk to town. - smoothsailin

This is an absolutely beautiful campground. It is well run, clean and quiet. It is close to Sisters and a short drive to Bend or Redmond. It is a little pricey but satisfactory for what you get. - Idletime

Wonderful place to stay. Beautiful setting. Very clean and well maintained, park-like setting. Friendly, helpful staff. Only downside is very slow Wi-Fi. - bobinidaho

The park is very attractive. They have access to the rodeo grounds next door, where you can exercise your dogs off leash. However, for $55, I expect decent WiFi. It was terrible and would not load even one webpage in multiple tries. The signal was strong, but this park clearly does not have adequate internet service for the number of sites they have. We will not be staying here again. - Blueberry10

Very nice camp and camp hosts. Very clean, park was full. Good water, good electricity, good sewer hookups. Very good WiFi. Gravel, hot water in showers which are clean. Sites are close to Crooked River bluffs. About half residents seemed to be seasonal. - Jim Lee

We rate this park very highly because we like good Wifi, and quiet parks. The views in the area are great, there are 6 good HD TV channels OTA (Over The Air), and there is ample dog walking around the park perimeter (but stay back from the cliff edges). With no TV cable, one unisex bathroom/shower, gravel pads, and a hard to find manager, it might not be everyone's cup of tea.
We would gladly stay here again when visiting the area. - Snoet

This park is okay for a night or two. It is a gravel parking lot with hookups. Mostly permanent residents here. It was very quiet and the views are nice. It looks as if they are working to clean the park up, putting in grass & trees. - CurleyJo

This area is the high desert of central Oregon with snowcapped mountains in the distance. The campground is part of a resort community and amenities at the resort like golf and pool are available to campers. The campground is located on a cliff overlooking the Crooked River and has several open green areas. The sites are different sizes so ask to ride around first and look at available sites. - RVerMJ

Older bathhouse/clean, and older office, wonderful greeting and welcome from hostess, with loads of additional information. The campground is a desert campground at the end of a long road into Crooked River Ranch. The campground is surrounded by a very good golf course. We found the campground to be a bit crowded with our back in right next to the next fellow. Crooked River Ranch is a very large desert community with 5+ acre lots so homes are few and far between and come in all styles, from large mini mansions and mobile homes to motor homes. No services to speak of on the Ranch so you should load up on groceries and fuel in Terrebonne. There is a small corner store about 1/2 mile from the campground but it is just like a gas station store. Large Walmart and Gas and other stores. Do not get this RV park mixed up with the more permanent RV park, River Rim RV park which is a passport America park and not as nice. The views are tremendous... - saturn7

Nice park with views of the mountain. Most sites have grass. There are some pull thru. Pay showers, so did not use.
Very busy park the weekend I stayed, tents from other sites were scattered all over the grass (common area), so made it difficult to walk thru. They do have a separate tent section. Not sure why so many tenters were in the RV area.
They have a pool also, but its a bit of a walk to get to. Overall a nice park and would stay again. I should note, no fires are allowed in this park. - Mystang

The campground is in an oasis of tall trees and green grass on a flat area of otherwise high desert. It is high above Lake Billy Chinook. You can't see the lake from the campground. It's easy to walk to the campground entrance and go down Jordan Road a very short distance to see views of the lake and a small waterfall. If you get out of the trees on the western side of the campground you'll have great views of Three Fingered Jack and Mount Jefferson. There isn't much of a trail system which would have been nice. There is grand scenery all around you. The park has plenty of space between sites more than we've seen at other Oregon State Parks. There is a lot of open space at ground level so visual privacy screening is minimal. Sites 12, 41, and 47 are some we'd recommend. - Neil and JoAnn

A nice state park, easy access for large RV's.
Really enjoyed our stay here, weekends were busy but during the week I think we were one of 8-10 rigs in this campground that probably had 70 or so sites, and 4 of those were occupied by the work campers. Very quiet during the week, we had a row of 15 empty sites to ourselves.
Good Verizon connectivity, AT&T was okay with a booster.
Beautiful views of the Cascade Range and the rivers in the area.
thankful for 50 AMP W/E hookup as we had a few days in the high 90's.
Had to do a bit tree trimming to be able to open our slides.
We've stayed at OR state parks before and find them to be much more big rig friendly than either WA or CA and much more affordable than their neighboring states. - DRFink

Wanted to hookup with my brother here. ReserveAmerica showed only 2 spots available. When we got there, park was half empty, including site next to my bro. The site we had reserved was tagged 'available.' Garmin needed a physical address. We didn't know, but Cove Palisades is 2 campgrounds, both going by separate names: Crooked River (Loop E only), and Deschutes. Garmin took us past the one we wanted and 5 miles across a canyon. The Crooked River campground is high about the river/lake, not really walkable to the water. It is well watered lawn, dotted with trees and deer. Had the largest grassy pen (soccer sized) for pet area, which was a new experience for my dog. There has been a very recent burn (Aug 25) up to the park boundary. I'm a fan of the Oregon State Parks, but this was not one of my favorites. - writedesign

Beautiful park in the middle of the desert. The C loop has terraced RV spaces. The bathrooms were the cleanest I have ever seen at an Oregon State campground. (And they are all very good!)
The Deschutes campground has full hookups (some others do not), which was nice for a 3-day stay. If you're into fishing, a fish-cleaning house is available on site. Very nice campground, I'd visit again! - NotSoPro

We stayed in Site C-12, a pull thru. If we come back this way we'd probably select a different site, one that has more space around it. C-12 is practically at a block wall. The picnic table and fire pit are elevated next to it. One disappointment was that we couldn't have a campfire or cook with charcoal due to a burn ban. But it was understandable because they had just had a fire the week before in their Crooked River Campground. The other disappointment was that it's eight miles in to get to the park. But then how else would you get down into the canyon?? - Glory

State park in Oregon high desert on reservoir Lake Billy Chinook. Lots of families and fisher people. Not much else. If you want to fish and drag a boat it would be good for you. Road winds down to lake and CG. Several around lake with poor signage. If you like dry sand with a green tinge lake with nothing else to do but fish, this place is for you. - Oregon91

Clean park, not in Redmond however, closer to Culver. Quiet, just far enough off hwy 97. Our nice level site had a nice view of Mt Hood? Would stay again without hesitation. - Sjo

The campground can be difficult to find; there are no signs on Hwy97, the major north-south highway. Grounds are clean, nicely maintained, sites level, hookups all work. Pleasant staff, offered unexpected perks such as evening ice cream social and pancake breakfast. - Roadgeezer

I'm an avid bicycle rider and this park is great for that. I was able to ride a round trip of 12.5 miles without traffic. My wife loves to walk so the irrigation canal behind the park: 1 mile in either direction.
However, the RV Park has some major issues with power and water pressure. That being said I'll start with the power. Being summer you want your RV running the air with 2 dogs inside when sight seeing. The power started kicking out with my surge protector just about the 1st day. I noticed that the power would drop dangerously low like 103 volts AC. My surge protector has an under and over voltage protection. I mentioned to the front office that there is a problem with the power and if they knew about it. They did, and I asked what they planned to do to correct it. I was told it was an on going issue. They directed me to the owner. We had a discussion and he changed out my pedestal outlets. I noticed the possible problem and explained the issue. He listened, agreed and said he was looking into it and had plans to upgrade the pedestals to 50 amp. I then asked if he could try and repair my site since I was here for a month. He agreed to re-pull wire to my site before the 4th of July weekend. It was not done and my power kicked out all weekend long, sometimes 6 times in an hour. I then had to put my surge protector in bypass, making my surge protector useless, which now wouldn't protect all of my electronics. I then went into the office and they offered me a refund.
Well where are you going to go on the 4th, if you don't have a reservation. She came by later and apologized for being rude. We left today and nothing has been done a whole month dealing with adverse power, leaving us without the security of power staying on when we were gone. The water pressure during the day was 20 PSI when they were watering the grass. - evolau
