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.

We were scouting a trail along the river. This park is two parks in one. One is the campgroud, along the river, and the other is the day use area, along the river. Today, in early January, there was still ice along the river. That didn't stop us from having a great hike. There were geese in the park and... More

This small state park offers a nice spot to set up tent or RV, if that is your deal. There is not much too it; the Deschutes River threads its way through the park, there is an amphitheater were the park rangers teach some about the wildlife of the area- nice for kids and those who are never to old...

The yurt was basic. Park not interesting enough for me to come back. VERY BUSY park. I stayed on a Tuesday after kids were already back in school. No easy walking access to the Deschutes River. Have to get in your car to get there. This was a stop in a 11-day, 10-stop road trip, and this was the ONLY... More

Didn't camp, but spent an few hours hiking the trails riverside at the State Park. Nice trails, cool in the shade of the pines even in the heat of the midsummer sun. Plenty of wildlife, birds, squirrels, things to see along the path. Plenty of places to stop along the way- picnic tables set along the water, the cooling sound... More

One of our favourite camp-grounds in Oregon. Nice location next to the river, clean, usually quiet, and the best hot showers in the world!

Oregon State Parks are generally upgrade for California rv/trailer campers as the sites often come with full hookups, as ours did. Tumalo is exceptionally well located in the Bend/Sisters area with easy access to all the great places to hike, bike, raft, etc. The campground was clean, quiet (with a little road noise coming from Hwy 20) and dog friendly....

We stayed two nights. Our spot was right near the bathroom which, with 3 small children, was helpful. It was also just down the hill from the playground which the children used often. They have solar showers, free for registered campers. There was no way to regulate the temperature, though. Since the weather had been quite sunny, the water was... More

Day use area was nice. Fun to float down the river, walk back upstream and repeat! Very nice on a hot day. The campground was OK. Sites nice, but facilites not so much. Again with the no soap for handwashing! Yuck! Cold solar showers that were a long walk from our site. And to top it off, my daughter's shower... More
