This is a beautiful campground with some hiking trails along the river. The Rangers and Campground Hosts are very nice and if you get into the shower early in the day, you can enjoy a nice hot shower! When we booked, there were no hookup sites left for our RV but the size of our rig fit nicely in a... More

Absolutely love this campground-I've been here twice. Rangers are friendly, and the park hosts always have firewood and ice on hand. Highly recommend this place.

The rafting photo was taken on the Deschutes, It in no way represents Tumalo Park which is on a quiet meandering Creek.

This park is an excellent location to use as a home base for exploring the various sites around Bend. The sites are close to one another, but well maintained. The restrooms are new, clean, with plenty of hot water. Two nice aspects are filtered water filling stations and sinks for cleaning dishes. The place is always full so reservations are... More

I'm giving this place 5 stars b/c it's surrounded by beauty, but our campsite #071 wasn't that great. It was next to the bathroom even though the map doesn't show it being that that close. There was no privacy at all. The best sites are by the river, otherwise most sites don't have any privacy. The bathrooms were very clean... More

a little crowded and noisy during the day, but peaceful at night. Tall trees provided great shade during the day as well as a place to string up a hammock.

Stayed two nights at Tumalo. Nice campground, the loop we were in (A) was much quieter than the other two loops. Loop A includes the hiker/biker section. The sight we were in (77) was right near the entrance, but most cars were going the other way, so not a big deal. The sites do not have a ton of privacy,... More

I rented a Yurt here. I dislike the need to book six months in advanced in order to get a site, but it seems to be the nature of today's world. I Love the amenities of State Parks, but have been in nicer ones than Tumalo. The sites here were closer together than at others I have stayed at, and... More

We love Tumalo State Park because it is so close to town - 4 miles. The spots are close to each other except for a select few but the trade off for us was we wanted to be able to go back and forth to town to eat and sightsee. The grounds are well kept and family friendly. We don't... More

We stayed at the park for 4 nights this June. Had a great spot on the outside of the ring with full hook ups. Washrooms have recently been redone and for a state park and very good. Park staff were friendly and always ready to assist. Good location close to Bend but quiet at night.
