Date of Stay: September, 2015 - $1.00
Rate is due to ROD membership. Only downside was the traffic noise. Very big wide spaces and everything worked great. Nice showers with tons of hot water. Didn't use the pool but others did and seemed to have any issues. Only downside was the store only open a couple of hours? Our site has gravel, most others are grass. We camped at Cascade Meadows RV Resort in a Motorhome.
This park is easily accessible from the road and close to attractions. Generally, it is a nice park with spacious sites and good hookups. One thing we would suggest is that the bathrooms and laundry room be updated. The floors are a painted concrete and could use a fresh coat of paint as well as the walls. The entrance to the laundry room had a birds nest above it and they were leaving their droppings right in front of the door. We would stay here again. We camped at Cascade Meadows RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.
As others have mentioned, there is some road noise and there are definitely trains. Those are the only major detractors. We like the green lawns which keep the dust down. Most campgrounds in this area are very dusty. Staff is friendly and helpful. One bathroom is dated, the other updated, but both are reasonably clean. We will stay here again. We camped at Cascade Meadows RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.
Tips for other Campers:
Obsidian Flow, Paulina Falls and Lake are very nearby. Crater Lake is about 70 miles, but doable in a 1 day trip. Bend is about 1/2 hour away. Floating the Deschutes is the best!
This "resort" is in an open field next to busy highway 97, without trees or paved roads/sites. Roads are dusty and potholed, and the gravel pull-thrus, while long and very spacious on each side, are not level. The picnic table at our site was too warped to be of use, and the sewer hookup was far back in the site and required and extension. No cable, little OTA, but no obstructions to TV satellites. WiFi was intermittent, but Verizon cell/4G was good. Unlike others, we found the road noise to be very intrusive, and trains, at least two during the night, added to the noise factor. We'll look for a quieter park next time we're in the area. We camped at Cascade Meadows RV Resort in a Motorhome.
Huge pull thrus, on grass or gravel. Free reasonable WiFi, no cable but we got some reception on our antenna. Easy accessible from the highway, at some sites you can see (and hear) the traffic and have some noise. It did not bother us. Sometimes you can hear the trains. But over all a great park. During our stay they were working on the pool. We're sure to come back to stay a couple of days. We camped at Cascade Meadows RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.
I agree with other postings. Traffic heard sometimes, but not a bother. We had a nice pull-through. Always enjoy this area, so much to see. Laundry is reasonable. We camped at Cascade Meadows RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Nice park with very wide long pull thrus. Some 50 amp. Good free WiFi but slows in evening due to users. Some road and train noise. Electric can be low when every bodies ACs are on. Have stayed before and will again. Seen several campfires and no issues with staff. Rate is C2C Premier. They do water a lot but not in occupied sites. 6 miles to La Pine and 20 to Bend (Walmart, Costco et al). We camped at Cascade Meadows RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.
The rate cited is the Passport America rate was $16.50 per night plus $3 service fee. I wish they would just raise the rate instead of playing games. This campground is fine for 1-2 days while exploring the area but, for longer stays, I'd move to one of the numerous USFS campgrounds nearby. This place has all wide, reasonably level pull-throughs. Their Wi-Fi is strong and consistent at our site in D Row. The showers and restrooms are old but acceptably clean. The campground is within 100 yards of Rte 97 so it's a bit noisy but that tends to drop off at night. The trains run along Rte 97 but, again, the noise is tolerable. They're obsessive about watering the grass to the point a maintenance man connected a sprinkler to our spigot via a "Y" adapter. It didn't have an anti-siphon device and made me a bit uneasy. I don't like anyone messing with my water. We were told during check-in the campground is going to a membership model and will not accept "transients" in the future. I predict that will be a bad move for this campground. Now that we know about the USFS campgrounds, I doubt we will stay here again when we return next year.

This is a pros/cons kind of campground. It's not great, although it does have the potential to be one nor is it bad, although if they don't make improvements it wouldn't take long to head that direction. First, the pros: The sites are huge! The park is clean. It is very easy to find and if you are looking to explore the Bend area it is in a great location. It does have a pool, a place to eat and a store. There is great internet access by the entrance. It is a very large park. The cons: The noise from the freeway is distinct and constant. They are right on the freeway. There is no security fence, so you do have exposure to the freeway. (There is about 300' of grass & scrub between). They advertise internet throughout the park. We must have been in the dead zone because it was spotty at best from our site. Their "lodge" is a room with a TV and some books and not well kept at all. There are no activities for the kids, so if they cannot entertain themselves with the pool and the playground, good luck. The only place to put your trash is at the entrance to the park. Finally, they have some "long term" RVers in the park. I realize this is a preference comment, but a few of the trailers made me nervous. Would I stay here again, probably. All in all, we had a positive experience. This is more of an "overnight on your way to somewhere else" place to camp. We camped at Cascade Meadows RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.

We enjoyed staying here. Plenty of space between the sites. On site, was a swimming pool and store. Convenient to many attractions in the area. We would stay here again. We camped at Cascade Meadows RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Price reflects RPI membership. Friendly staff, but are really only interested in accommodating long term visitors. We followed all park rules, but were harassed by two long term visitors for having a campfire and various other knit picky issues. Before coming to the resort, I confirmed with them their campfire rules (fire pit off the ground and have a cover.) In the end the resort owner sided with the menacing park dwellers and made us put our campfire out. They offered to move us to a different site, but could not guarantee that we would not be harassed again by any other long termers. They graciously refunded our payment for the week, we were suppose to stay, and apologized for the unwelcoming behavior of the park dwellers. This park is nice if you have no kids, no pets, and do not step foot out of your trailer. We camped at Cascade Meadows RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.
This is an average RV park but with a lot of potential. The sites are huge grassy pull-throughs with plenty of room. The park is clean and well maintained and does have a pool & store, although the day we arrived the store closed at 4pm. The host & staff were friendly but upon checkin they somehow lost our reservation. I asked for a 50amp site and they put me in a site with 30. It's a long hike to dump your trash. You have continuous highway traffic noise as its a wide open field and ~100 yards from the highway. The park feels like a massive mall parking lot except its grass. The kids did like the pool. Two amenities my wife requires is cable TV and a fire-pit: this place has neither. We've stayed here before and use it as just an overnight stay to get to our next destination. I will say this place is a great central base-camp if you want to explore the area. We camped at Cascade Meadows RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.
Good location as far as easy access to Hwy 97, but a bit noisy for same reason. Big wide long pull through sites. Rate is RPI + $5 a night extra for 50 amps. Close to several nice recreation areas. We camped at Cascade Meadows RV Resort in a Motorhome.
We do our week out of Thousand Trails here. Nice to have sewer again and laundry close, although the dryers are not hot and take a while. The park is clean, spacious. The lady checking us in could not have been nicer. We have eaten at the restaurant and it was very good. Great trail right out of the back of the park and the dog loves it. Good location to attractions The rate reflects an RPI membership. We will stay again. We camped at Cascade Meadows RV Resort in a Motorhome.
