We love camping in Central Oregon in our small travel trailer. We have an awesome array of great camping places and Tumalo State Park is among the best. Right now part of the campground area is closed for the winter but B Loop is open. It's a cozy place with full hookups, on site hosts and Rangers who check in... More

Plenty of activities to do in this area but hiking is probably our favorite. Easiest hike is to the platform to view the falls but an even better viewing point is under the falls, literally! There is a trail leading down to the creek before you get to the platform so pay attention. You can stand under the falls and... More

This state park has 3 camping loops but two of them close in early October, when we were there. The bathrooms are new and kept very clean. I recommend making a reservation, especially if you want an RV site with hook-ups. They also have 7 yurts which can be reserved.

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
