21 Parks near Crooked River Ranch, Oregon
Jul 2016 - $34.00
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

Nice scenic park. Power/water/dump all fine. The most scenic part near the canyon rim is not open during the winter. Good ATT cellular data. Good Verizon cellular data. No camp fires. - Nelsonfamily

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

Deschutes County Fair & Expo RV Park
It's a very nice park and the woman that works at the counter was really nice. I believe the park is about 8 years old, but you can't really tell. It's very clean, and neat. The pads are cement and the spots are surrounded by large gravel. There is a very nice dog area and the plantings around the campground are attractive, but no trees around the campsite. We were in full sun all day. Very clean laundry room, $1.50 to wash, 25 cents for 10 min. to dry.
The negatives would be 1) the dump hook up is inconvenient, as one would need a 30 ft. hose. We had to back up our motorhome (as did others) before we left to connect to the dump and the neighbors dump hook up was right outside our door. 2) Bathrooms were nice with the exception that there is something wrong with the drainage. Excess water from the showers drain to the middle of the bathroom, yet there is do drain there. Also, there is a bench that one could use to dress, but one would have to stand in the water to get dressed. Also, one walks through the water to get to the toilet stall. The men's and woman's rooms have the same issue. I mentioned the situation to the office staff and she stated that the county owns the park and it takes them a while to fix things. I think a small dam wall at each shower would solve the problem.
We camped in a 30' coach with a car dolly. Our site was a back in. We had room to store the dolly and have our car in front. There are some pull in sites, but we were unlucky and did not get one. WiFi was virtually non-existent and there was no cable. We would definitely camp here again. - Living the Life

We have stayed here before, it is industrial in design, plain and simple. it is clean, looks brand new but it is more than 5 years old. there is no cable or wi fi which brings it down in value. It is fairly close to all the big stores in Redmond, and a nice golf course and restaurant is in walking distance. There is another high end RV park ($60-$90) in Bend itself which people like, I like this simple quiet RV park. Handy to everything. - saturn7

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

One night stay while passing through. Site was gravel and level. Utilities were convenient. There were a lot of nice people in the park, which gave it a good "vibe". Sites have adequate room and it is quiet at night. Nice shade trees. They have an ice cream store open on the weekends. Would stay again. - Marshnik

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

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

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

Terrific campground. Good separation between nice pretty level sites. Host was very friendly and helpful. Not crowded at all at the end of October. Several sites had campers who brought in boats to go fishing. Host indicated that the campground had been redone about a year ago. Had the best two lane dump station I've ever seen. Slope was perfect for evacuating the holding tanks. Was very clean. Obviously the people who camp here really care about the grounds and facilities. Rangers were friendly and efficient. Has a large off-leash pet exercise area and pick-up bags are provided. We will come back again, but earlier in the year. - jbarry130

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

Beautiful grounds, clean bathrooms, plenty of space between sites. One HUGE PROBLEM. The wifi is very, very slow to dead. The guy in the office told me it must be "sun spots." (Either he is an idiot or thinks I am.) What a joke. For a 5 Star resort to have this kind of wifi service is TERRIBLE. Also be aware of crowing roosters, ducks, geese, etc., from the Secret Garden that will awaken you at 4:30 am every morning. - Phoenixaway

Beautiful park and well maintained. Pricey. Close to Sisters and about 20 miles to Bend for additional shopping. Scenic drives available in the nearby mountains. - James T

The park is beautiful with lots of open grassy space. The issue we had was there are signs everywhere to keep dogs off the grass. Big disappointment as this was the deciding factor for us staying there. We were on a nice space on the pond and they did a great job cleaning up after the ducks everyday. The GPS showed it as 7 miles out from Bend when in fact is was 3 miles from Sisters; much farther out from Bend than we were lead to believe. Sisters is a cute town but for us the attraction was Bend so we did a lot of driving. - VikkiB

This is an ok place to stay and pretty much the only place with hookups in the area in winter when the parks that are on the reservoir are closed so it's useful if you are travelling through. The spaces consist of a narrow strip of asphalt with a strip of grass next to it and a picnic table. The lengths vary with most being long enough for a big rig. There are mostly pull thrus but there are some back in sites where you back up to another rig. The sites are very narrow, barely wide enough for our dually, and the neighbors are quite close. Not much privacy. It is clean and well kept and quiet though. It was pretty full when we were there and it looked like there were many long term residents although all the sites were tidy. There was no water to the sites because of problems with the cold (per the manager). There was no discount, though, which I thought was a bit of a rip off. There is a water fill station and dump station even though the sites are FHU. They have basic cable but we don't do tv so can't comment. The wi-fi was useless. Could connect, but no internet. Only stayed overnight so didn't care enough to ask at the office about the problem. Verizon signal was strong, though. The restroom was bright, clean, modern, and spacious. The shower stalls were on the small size, but otherwise just fine. Didn't use so can't comment further. Would stay again if only passing through but would prefer to stay on the lake if the parks there were open. - Pdxjoanne

This is a serviceable RV park next to a Fairgrounds just outside Prineville, OR. Neat and clean, well-maintained. Hookups are good, you can choose between 50 amp or 30 amp, just a few dollars difference. Office staff was very helpful and friendly. Great for dogs, as there are pick-up bags at two locations, and gates into the fairgrounds for walking or running dogs. Spacing was okay, with grass between, and a good picnic table at each spot. No complaints at all. Not beautiful, but a good value. Quiet. I plan to stay here again, as we travel back and forth. - LeeL

Price is for 30 amp, without tax. This is a very well kept park. Each space has a small strip of lawn. Hostess was very nice and put us in a site where we could use our satellite dish as we requested. They have cable TV and Wi-Fi. It is very quiet and pet friendly. Shopping and fuel are nearby. We would come here again if in the area. - carold
