Nice rangers at the entrance. Large site to park our 30 feet long RV. Clean sites, showers and restrooms. Good fire pit. In the middle of a forest. We loved it all ! Highly recommended.

There are so many beautiful places around Bend, it's hard to recommend Tumalo State Park because of the fee. Gorgeous place alongside the Deschutes River, but it's actually hard to see the river due to the natural growth. Maybe for camping or a group site...More
