Awesome hiking, beautiful lakes and the Cascade mountains are all part of the fun at Tumalo State Park. We never camped here, but there is a lot of fun t be had if you come for a day visit.

We visit a lot of state parks in Oregon and this is one of the cleanest that I've seen. The bathrooms are really nice and they even have outdoor dish washing stations. The only downfall is that the sites are pretty close so you don't get a lot of privacy.

Campground has little privacy, is very busy, and many sites are fully exposed to sun. But... It's pretty quiet, has clean restrooms and showers, has a wonderful day use area, and is close to Bend and Sisters. Most people in camp were respectful of noise and privacy.

Great place to take the kids floating, we float from the Tumalo bridge to twin bridges. The float takes about 2.5 hours and is fun for the entire family.

Oh my goodness, my kids cannot stop talking about it :-) And I keep dreaming of coming back. We were only able to stay 2 nights, but my husband and I both agreed that we could've stayed a week or longer without getting bored. We would tube in the morning, hike around a bit, then go into Bend for dinner.... More

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.
