Stayed for 3 nights while we hiked and mountain biked in the Bend area. Our site (16) was very small -- other sites were a bit bigger but none in the B and C loop had much privacy. A sites down by the river looked much nicer. Day use area is beautiful. Bathrooms (free hot, or at least warm showers)... More

We camped here for 5days and loved every minute! Peaceful, clean with great amenities. The Yurts looked like a fun place to stay. Look forward to visiting again.

This place is cramped. There is sites right up next to the bathroom. Noisy. No real amenities, however, town is very close. The sites nearer the group sites are most spacious and are hook up. The sites 40-46 are on top of one another. Site 43, very difficult to back into!! Saw someone try. Site 45 is almost in the... More

We drove out to see Tumalo State Park. It is a nice park where the waters are peaceful and meandering. As such, its a good place for children. There was a large organized group when we were there. There is hiking and picnic areas. There is also a campground. It is very close to the downtown area of Bend -... More

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
