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

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

As usual, the park is comfortable and clean. The wireless internet is provided by Bend Broadband, and is worthless. - retiredfields

Beautiful park. No fancy pools, etc. But very clean! Paved roads and sites. Some gravel, some grass patios. Cannot beat this park for clean and just plain nice. Separate from the fairgrounds, but a part of the Deschutes FG. - User3274

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

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

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

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

Nice RV park about 4 miles outside Sisters, OR. Easy pull through sites with firepits and picnic tables. Clean restrooms and showers. Cable was offered but we could not get it to work on our TV. WIFI connections were spoty. This was a good central spot to explore the Bend/Sisters/Redmond area. Unfortunately we did not take advantage of the extras such as pool, hot tub, or mini golf. I am sure these are part of the reason for the higher price. We stayed here in a Travel Trailer. - JABMPM
