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.

A thoroughly enjoyable three mile walk - out and back with a more or less constant rumble of water and a variety of vegetation and bird life. Walking is easy with a well marked trail following the river. Toilets available at trail heads. Definately to...More

RV Camping in/near Bend (4 Replies)
Last minute my husband has decided to drive our 36 ft RV up to Bend and do the Cascades Cycling Classic at the end of July. He wants to stay in the area about a month and train beforehand but I'm not having much luck finding good places we can stay for that long. Having water and electric hookups would be great but we can do without if necessary. Of course we'd love a wooded camping experience rather than an RV park, we can do without the amenities, but places like Tumalo State Park are...More

There's an RV park between Bend & Sisters (Bend/Sisters Garden RV Resort) that might work for you. It's not in the woods, but it has good access to roads and trails that are popular with cyclists. As it's close to the rodeo grounds, not sure if that will affect availability - usually the rodeo is in early-mid June.

Handicap accessible hikes near Silver Falls State Park? (4 Replies)
Hi all! My family is planning a trip in mid June to Sunset Bay State Park (yurt-3 days) then Silver Fall State Park (cabin 4-days) and onto Tumalo State Park (yurt-2 days). We have an 11 year old mildly disabled son who can hike about 1-mile. We have a large "baby jogger" stroller for him. Do you recommend any hikes that we should consider or avoid when we are staying at Silver Falls? Any other advice about things to do that would work well for us is greatly appreciated. I should also add...More

Silver Falls SP would be a great place to go as it has quite a few amenities that would support your accessiblity requirements. It is one of my favorite places. I would recomend the South Falls Lodge area- it has paved trails-even down to the South Falls. South Falls Lodge is the main area of the park so it should be ADA accessable. It also has a playground area and 'swimming' in the creek if you really want to swim in June! I believe that most of the bike trails are paved as well(if bike...More
