“Most Friendly Place”

Camp Sherman Store on the Metolius River
Attraction details
Reviewed November 27, 2012

This is the anchor business at Camp Sherman, and they welcome everyone. Their inventory is surprisingly varied, from gourmet to flies (for fly fishing, that is!). In travels all over the states west of the Rockies, this is the very best for us. The Post Office next door has a stash of magazines and books for borrowing on the honor system. Camp Sherman is a good central location for exploration of the scenic areas from Madras to Prineville to Bend and along the McKenzie River.

The store at Camp Sherman is all it should be with a little bit of most of what one might need away from home. it also has a shop in the back with all the fishing gear needed and guides to give you helpful hints on where to go any particular day and what to use. But if you need lessons in fly fishing as we did, ask for Warren. Patient and kind he knows lots about his sport and shares it in a very helpful way...it seems to be a way of looking at life-catching a fish is certainly not the only goal or even the most important.

Located between the Oregon Coast and Bend, OR, the Metolius is not just filled with trout, but is as peaceful and quiet as the meadow itself. With green meadows and ice old water, you can get lost In the serenity of it all. During the hot days, you will appreciate the ice old river. Whether staying in a local cabin or camping along the river, you can enjoy fly fishing, reading, and an occasional trip to the local Camp Sherman store where they still sell penny candy (or lose to it).

The store is stocked with fly fishing gear, souvenirs, sweatshirts, camp food, and lots of friendly locales willing to sell you bait to feed the fish out te front door at te bridge.

Camp Sherman Metolius offers horseback riding, fishing, and is a perfect setting to bring the bikes. Very laid back. Not the glitzy resort some my be looking for. Keep in mind that most cabins (commercial or private) are not go friendly. They are however, welcome in campgrounds and BLM land. There are trails in th upper hills or the hikers and is a perfect stopping point if you're on a motorcycle and need to enjoy the scenery you've been enjoying thru the Santiam Pass. Suggest at least a 5 day stay, 7 is best. .

Close enough for a trip to nearby Sisters to enjoy a meal and browsing thru local stores. Bend is further east.
