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 stayed in our fifth-wheel for 4 days. We made a mistake with our reservations and they still accommodated us. Apparently lots of the customers come and stay for 3 or 4 months during the summer, but the park owners are on site at all times and so the sites are clean and the park is extremely quiet. Not a place that caters to children, as no play areas, but we prefer the quiet. Bathrooms are the cleanest I have ever seen at an RV park. Wi-Fi is fine for basic use and they tell you it is not designed to watch Netflix, etc. TV reception is great. Would definitely come again. - mrs-c

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 has potential. Great views and is quiet. However the park roads are gravel and rather dusty; this is Central Oregon. NOT all spaces are equal in size or quality! Some spots have grass and cement blocks for the picnic table, while others have no grass or just artificial grass under the table. Also due to fire hazard you are not allowed to have fires. Some spots have a nice view of the terrain while others do not. Be very careful with kids and pets as there is a huge canyon not far from the park without any fence or warning signs (However you do have to stray away from the road and campsite for several hundred yards.) There is NO security at night or personnel on call. And the response time for EMS or Deputies would be quiet lengthy given the location; so keep this in mind if it is a concern for you. The staff was friendly; but with one office person and only one grounds person, seemed understaffed. No cable tv despite what the website states! They did offer in the past, but not currently. Also crappy Wi-Fi if they even had a working wi-fi. Fortunately we had LTE with ATT so just streamed videos. In short this park, like Crooked River Ranch itself, has great potential, but is sub-par when compared to most private parks. Fortunately this is reflected in the price as well as it is lower than most. However given there are no amenities, it may still feel too high for the summer months. - Oregon_Adventure

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

I am an RV park owner so I search for the best I can get in the area we want to be. The paved roads, no speed bumps and concrete sites made it so easy to unhook and be level ! Also plenty of room to park your vehicle.The restrooms and laundry are excellent.Very good customer service. We were here to visit friends and sightsee. Park central to every where.We would stay here again in warmer months.It was too cold for hiking this April. We were also in Arizona for the warm weather so this park good stopping place on our way back to Washington State. - katlady

Good access to events at the fairgrounds. Restrooms are clean and well maintained. Campsites are mostly paved with very little grass. As another has said, BLM land is adjacent to the park and is good for pets to run. - Mike123

A very nice newer park, although a bit on the expensive side for what you get. Most of the pull through sites had no grass, so we selected a nice end location back in site (C12) which had a narrow grass strip at the rear. Very dog-friendly park with a huge area of nice grass toward the expo center (gate access) which was great for tossing the discs for the dogs. If you can snag them, pull through sites A9 and A10 are the easily the best sites in the park. We'll stay here again if in the area. 14 miles to Bend. Clear sky for satellite and excellent Verizon coverage. - Jerry and Betsy

East campground known as "Haystack" is very nice, but only one water spigot. Dump station in town of Culver. 2.5 miles away. Group campgrounds had no water but otherwise were adequately equipped and clean with exception of broken glass everywhere. - Doug Toye

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

We stayed here last year for two weeks, and it is the same as we reviewed then for this two week stint at $125 a week. We were comfortable here, but it is not everybody's cup of tea. They have finally supplied toilet paper in those giant Texas toilet paper dispensers. The long termers may look seedy, but they are friendly, helpful, and kind. One of the worst places we stayed at was a high dollar park where everyone seemed cold and judgemental. I would definitely stay here than there. - mycelia

The place was tacky town. All but 3 or 4 sites were full time(monthly). Stereotypical trailer trash. Joe Dirt would have been at home. We were glad to have it as an emergency came up and we had to stay 2 weeks...at $75 a week. That's the best thing about the place. We felt safe but were cautious. Some people asked for $20 that they would pay back on Tuesday. Bring your own toilet paper to restrooms. - mycelia

This is one of our favorite places to come. We've stayed in both A and C loop and had a terrific time! The staff is super friendly and the spaces are perfect for our size travel trailer. We do not have a boat but we rented at Cove Palisades Resort & Marina - Very affordable and perfect for getting out into deeper water for fishing. Everyone is super awesome and friendly showing how to use the boat features, goes over safety, provides life jackets, etc... The facilities are really clean and we love the little mini 'store' at the entrance gate. We've often forgot something - and they have had ice cream which is awesome on the hot summer days! - WereGoingCamping

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

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

Yes majority were permanent residents. Their sites clean and well maintained. It is an older park but clean and well maintained. Staff friendly and helpful. We stayed 2 nights and would stay again. We have a 31 ft motorhome with 2 slideouts. Site was fairly level and full hook-ups good. - Foucek

Very friendly staff and large pull-thru sites with full hookups. Office wasn't open when we first arrived, but instructions were clear and had no trouble finding an open site. Some permanent residents which was not a problem. Hookups worked well and were well placed. Will probably come again. - frmOregon

This is a trailer park with no amenities. We knew when we saw all the permanent mail boxes we were not in an RV park regardless of the name. Older trailers - some have hand-built additions. We back up to a busy highway that is noisy. Tiny strip of grass between us and neighbor. No room for a lawn chair. Orange cones must be used to protect our car and front of coach. Not even room for our awning. The "perms" appear to have nicer lots and room for two cars/trucks. They are very protective of their "yards." The pet area is gravel overgrown with weeds. We didn't want to encounter a snake so didn't use it. They will know we made this evaluation as we seem to be the ONLY actual RV in the park. - Newbet

Another excellent stay. What can I say that hasn't been said. There is an enclosed dog park plus dog trails. Even an outside exercise trail, putt-putt course, pool and you can even have an outside fire. There is a catch and release fish pond. The site We had, satellite was excellent and cable ready. Level pad and two water sources. - bikenorth51

Beautiful campground. Nicely landscaped and spacious sites. Nice dog walk. One of the dog areas is used for rodeos and is fenced and huge. You can let your dogs run for miles. The only issue we had was I asked for a pull through site when I made the reservation over the phone. We arrived after the office closed at 4 p.m. and the site we were assigned was a head in sight and not long enough for our tow vehicle. We went to the host campsite and no one was there. Went back to the office and ended up in space 39 which was a pull through site that was listed on their available list. Very happy with the site. - eurodl

Stayed during off season. Office/store had very short hours. Didn't open till 9:00am and then was late opening. Closed on sundays. Very pretty park with a private lake, but the lake view sites are for class A only so even though the park had several lake view/side sites empty, they were not available to non-class A travelers even though nightly space rent was the same. Hook ups would of been on the wrong side but they could have offered these beautiful sites. Quiet park close to both sisters and Bend. Overall a good 2 night stay. - Pbeh
