Camped in Tumalo State Park at the end of June- super hot weekend!! Campsites are not very private and have very little tree cover. Other than that- location is great if you want to camp close to Bend (we biked from the campsite one day- about a 6 mile bike, the first mile is very steep, but the rest is... More

I tent camped here with my husband and two kids (9 and 11). We had a great time. I recommend camping in the A loop, if at all possible (creek side and loop). The sites are large and most had grassy areas, with bushes for privacy. B and C loops were just too crowded with no privacy or shade whatsoever.... More

Lovely spot and many activities available. Good trails and substantial parking area. Adjacent to fabulous cycling roads, one of which wends its way to a Whole Foods along some of the most beautiful countryside imaginable. One of a number of good choices for outdoor activities in the greater Bend area.

The waterfalls were closed, but trails still open. Biking is superb here. Short drive from anywhere in Bend. There are some roads undergoing construction so some trails/waterfalls were closed when we went to visit. Great hike for pets too.

All the other reviews pretty much cover this park from the highs to the lows. It's small, it's very popular (as in crowded), and if you want to wade in the Deschutes River you have to walk a modest distance and cross a road. But the key thing is the location: only a few miles from downtown Bend. This isn't... More

Gorgeous park and trails are good. My kids and hubby love it and so do I. We even bring the dog. Central Oregon is so beautiful and in a place like this you begin to see why people settled here in the first place. Make sure you bring sunscreen and bug spray though. Depending on the weather and time of... More

It is an average State Park. Maybe I didn't see enough of it. It was a long patch of green beside the river, which was nice. Looks like a nice place for a family picnic. There is a very cool boulder structure that is work a look and a picture.

Nice place for a easy hike. Gorgeous scenery all around you. Not just for Spring and Summer. Winter gives you sights rarely seen along the river banks. I still have to hike it in Fall. One can never beat being beside the Deschutes River. So relaxing!

A favorite spot for local photographers to shoot the fall colors against the river waters,Tumalo State Park is pretty all year round. In the summer it is great to float the river and have a picnic in the park. But any time of year if is great to walk the trails and enjoy natures beauty.

We did a five-mile snowshoe trip through the park and the trail ran along a creek. It was a gorgeous trek and we loved it.
