Paved site and roads, level. Our site had only 20 amp. Just enough room for toad, kind of squeezed it in. Sites are more than three times as large as most. Very private feeling. Mostly shaded especially in the afternoon. There is a huge dog park unfortunately it is not 100% secure as there is room at the bottom for determined dogs to get out. High desert vegetation. Largest ponderosa pine is here. We spent a lot of time in Bend which has a fantastic park system along the Deschutes River, absolutely beautiful. The Newberry Volcanic National Monument. Drove to Tumalo Falls, pleasant and scenic. Road gets rough right before you get there. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Staff was great and helpful. We camped at La Pine State Park in a Motorhome.

Stayed here for four nights as part of a 4th of July Camping trip with friends. The park is spacious and located about 4 miles from Hwy 97. Don't expect good cell service here. Our loop didn't have a playground, but had a large field in front of the shower/bathroom facility where our kids played for hours. Lots of great hiking an beautiful scenery. Our site was a 30 second walk to the river. My only gripe was that the bathrooms (men's & women's) in our loop didn't have soap dispensers. OK, that's pretty disgusting and needs to be fixed ASAP. That's actually a health hazard. That said, we'll probably return next year (but with own own bottles of liquid soap). We camped at La Pine State Park in a Travel Trailer.

About 25 miles from Bend, which has lots of great breweries and restaurants. We went into Bend once to go float tubing down the Deschutes river. Highly recommended! But you can also float down the river in the park as well. The town of La Pine is close by. It has a small-town feel and the people are very nice. We enjoyed the Frontier Days Celebration for the 4th of July Weekend.

It was nice to see full hookups in a state park, but they really need to remove some of the campsites in this older park as they are very close together. I suppose I am spoiled after staying at various state parks with much more room between sites, and my feelings were also probably influenced by staying here when it was absolutely a full campground. Another problem was the only dumpsters being located a very long way away so I had to store my trash until I left. Plus, there was no Verizon cell or data service at all. Lots of big trees if you like the woodsy feel, but no satellite service at all. Roads were fairly easy to navigate and my back-in site was easy to get into, which can be a problem in places with lots of trees, but they had done a good job of trimming branches. We camped at La Pine State Park in a Motorhome.

La Pine is well off the beaten path. There was no cell service within the park for us (Verizon). The park itself is quite nice. The sites have a respectable distance between them. The roadways are paved. The utilities are stable. There are many trees so satellite service is probably sketchy. Sadly, there is no children's playground, nor real access to the river which runs through the park. You can see it but it's down a steep bluff. The hosts were very kind and helpful. We had a pull-through site which barely fit the 40 ft length of our trailer and TV. We camped at La Pine State Park in a Travel Trailer.

La Pine State Park is a large state park in the high desert, off of highway 97. Highway 97 is quite buggy, but the park wasn't at all. The campground is six miles off of the highway, next to the Deschutes River. The campground is large, with lots of space between the sites. Hiking trails all over the place. The river is beautiful. We were there in mid-May. It was quiet. Only a few other campers. I would think during the summer, it would be a busy place. The roads are easy to navigate, and there are a number of sites that big rigs would fit. Our site was a back-in site that had water and 20 amp electric. the electric outlet was upside down, and it was a struggle to bend our power cord enough to get plugged in. Once we got plugged in, it worked fine. The dump station is on the way out of the campground. With our WeBoost, Verizon and AT&T were fine. Without, cell service would have been marginal. There aren't as many trees as in a lot of the rest of Oregon, so a satellite dish would probably work. While we were there (mid-May), it was literally raining giant pinecones. We had several loud BANGs on the roof of the rig while we were there. The only trash cans in the entire campground were near the entrance to the campground, by the dump station. We think this was probably because of wildlife. We saw a large and healthy looking wolf wandering through the campground early in the morning. The ranger at Newberry National Monument confirmed that there's currently a pack of seven wolves in the area. We camped at La Pine State Park in a Motorhome.

We had a great stay at the La Pine State Park. Our spot was great and we really enjoyed the shade the trees provided. The park was extremely clean and the camp hosts were so friendly. We really enjoyed all of the trails that were easily accessible to our site. The bathrooms and showers were great. The cell signal was dismal even with our cell booster, so we spent most of our time working from a coffee shop in Sunriver, but it was still a great place to stay. Our site was extremely level, which was great! We camped at La Pine State Park in a Motorhome.

Beautiful park. Quiet. Stayed for a week. It snowed on a couple of days! Didn't stick to the ground, but pure heaven for us! Lots to do in the general area, but our biggest struggle was that there was no cell service (Verizon). Since we didn't know the area, we wanted to search local attractions, but had to drive to the town of La Pine or Bend to get decent cell reception. Early in the week, I surprisingly got cell service at the campsite and used my phone as a hotspot for the computer. Unfortunately, I picked up a virus. My phone instantly slowed to a crawl, and my computer was a mess. I ended up purchasing a new cell phone in Bend. My advice: Enjoy the campground and don't try to use your cell service. Drive to La Pine (probably 15 to 20 minutes away). We camped at La Pine State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Bend was awesome! Food trucks, beer tasting, great shopping, beaurtiful views. We want to go back to see the Lava Butte, I've heard it's so interesting to see. We couldn't time our visit to when they were open. In nearby La Pine, there is a nice laundromat.

Campground facilities and campsite were wonderful. Location fantastic for exploring nearby volcanic monuments and the city of Bend. Low rating due to concern for the large school group that arrived on Wednesday before Memorial Day and packed in more than the maximum number of campers in each of the INDIVIDUAL campsites. This was our second year camping here at the same time as the previous year. It sounded like having a day camp as a neighbor for several hours when each day, the adults held outdoor activities in the open grass field in the center of the Middle Loop campsites. There is a day use group site across the river but no group overnight area. This huge group of children should be placed away from campers who seek peace and quiet at a state campground. We will not be returning here a third year at the same time period. We camped at La Pine State Park in a Travel Trailer.

The only section that was open (Nov 2, 3) was the south section and I found the sites to be nicely spaced. We were greeted by an angry chipmunk who let us know that we were parking in his space and he wasn't happy about it. Shower could have been hotter and bathroom could have been warmer. We camped at La Pine State Park in a Motorhome.

Oregon has the best State Park system in the country, and this one is no exception. Top notch. Sites are dead level but a little too close together for my comfort, but still way better than the typical "stack 'em in like sardines" RV park. You had better make reservations, even in the off-season; there was only one site left when I arrived and I could only have it for one night. Excellent cellular signal. We camped at La Pine State Park in a Motorhome.

Rate is for a level paved site with water and electric hookup. Dump station on the way out. We stayed in the north loop which has a very bumpy road through. Take it slow. We were lucky to grab the second last available site. Mid-September and the park was full! The sites are a little to close together for our liking - privacy is limited. It would be very quiet but inconsiderate neighbors and their yappy lap dogs can ruin your camping experience. We will not come back. Just tired of those crowded places where every dog owner believes to own the place. We camped at La Pine State Park in a Truck Camper.

Wonderful park, set up as three large rectangles with pull-through sites on the interior and back-in site on the exterior of each loop. The back-in sites provide a bit more privacy, but the pull-through sites include a large grassy area perfect for Frisbee or like activities. Extensive trail system for walking/biking, access to Deschutes River, and fairly close to town. We just spent the night, and with all the activities available, didn't feel the need to unhook. Firewood and ice is available for sale. We camped at La Pine State Park in a Travel Trailer.

First off do not drive Hwy97 north during summer to get their, bugs on vehicle, no bugs. Lots of bugs. Now the campground. Great place to hike, bike, horses too. Lots of trails, and along river. Great view points on trail. No fires this year. No cell coverage. But my purpose was mountain bike riding. We camped at La Pine State Park in a Motorhome.
