This is a really fun spot to visit year round. However, during the summer, it gets overwhelmingly packed. Families tend to take over the park and throw weddings and other odd events.

We really enjoy camping. Since this is the off season, cold and rainy we stayed in a Yurt. Nice to have heat and electrical outlets. The campsites are way too close and the neighbors seem to always be noisy. Very friendly camp host!

What a nice park. Kind of small, but about 10 minutes from downtown Bend and 2 minutes from a cute little Tumalo area. The campsites are decent sized, each has a bonfire pit with grate. There are some boulders to climb on. You can tube in the river at the public part of the park across the street (it's very... More

The hike up tumalo mountain is definitely hard work but the views are worth every drop of sweat. You definitely need hiking poles or a sturdy stick for the walk down the mountain as it's very hard on your knees (and we are young!!)

There is so much that is so sad about this park. A long time camper told me to stay here because "it's so pretty". Pretty sad, honestly. The entire park is so hard used there is only a few spots of green, and those only by the permanent RV sites hoarded by the camp hosts. Otherwise there isn't a lick... More

I am reviewing this park as an RV'er. The park offers some full hook up sites for a decent rate, $31, if you can find space (Careful if you are driving a big rig). Access to the river is near by if you like swimming in frigid water or have labs. The setting is quite natural and peaceful. Everyone staff-wise... More

So very pleased with this place. Great RV site, clean bathrooms, pretty landscaping, etc. Close to the river with nice hiking trails and swimming. This was definitely one of the nicest campgrounds we've stayed in.

We stayed for 3 nights at the start of September - the weather had turned cold so the hot showers were essential when (tent) camping!! Amenities in general were great, with a dishwashing station also. There is little privacy in loop B where we stayed, but amenities plus proximity to Bend is fantastic. Very popular in summer/long weekend so recommend... More

Family Friendly fun Campground! The campsites are aliitle too close together for my taste - however many people enjoy this kind of camping. There are great trails, a nice river and lots of wildlife - including coyotes!

Tumalo was well kept and clean and that's agood thing because it is busy! One of the few and best options for camping near Bend. The sites are close together and very little cover mainly because it's the desert. We noticed they've newly planted numerous bushes between sites trying to create more seperation, looks good. We backed onto the old... More
