Cascade Meadows RV Resort is located in the premier recreation area of Central Oregon’s Cascade Mountain Range. The Resort itself sits in a meadow just down the road from Deschutes National Forest, and is located 22 miles south of Bend, 11 miles south of Sunriver, 28 miles from Mount Bachelor Ski Resort, and just minutes from beautiful Paulina and East Lakes.
Highway Noisy, Dusty, Dirty Cabin
Our relatives arranged for our stay in the small cabin on this property, they stayed in their RV close by. The office was somewhat disorganized and untidy but the staff was friendly, knowledgeable and professional. Can't say the same about the property cleaners/housekeepers. The cabin appeared to have never, ever been dusted; the log walls, ceiling fan and venetian blinds were covered in a thick layer of dust. The finishes inside were worn and extremely cheap, A larger person would not be able to use the toilet and shower without difficulty, the bathroom was tiny, the shower had mold/dirt all around the bottom. The cabin and many of the RV sites were one row of trees and a few yards away from the highway, so it was noisy. Nothing special about this place at all, we won't be back.
Needed a RV site for 2 nights last minute. Called 3 places, one had no room, one wanted $120 a night. Cascade Meadows had space and even though it’s above by price range I was in need. We had a nice space in back of park. No one near us. Laundry, restrooms clean and in working order. Showers clean and good hot water. We checked in late and left with out any interaction with the office while there. I had an issue with my bill and it was corrected right away when I called in. Thank-you! I would recommend staying here if you’re in the area. Lots to see and do from this RV park.
RPI Members Denied Discount
Based on location and convenience this park is fine. We are RPI members and chose to pull in here for these reasons. There was a seemingly helpful friendly woman at the check in desk who told my husband who is elderly that they were full (they were not it turns out) and charged him $30 per night for two nights stay for total $61.90. (Plus additional $5 per night for 50 amp.) She wanted cash so that he pay her to speed along the check in process, which my husband willingly gave her. She explained she had no idea what RPI rates were (even though this park SELLS memberships!) so she was actually doing him a “favor” with a discount from their normal rate of $60 per night! RPI members are only supposed to pay $10 per night, so we not only did not save money, we got flim-flammed. On Sunday my husband talked to the manager about the mistake. He asked to see a receipt. The lady at the desk said he didn’t need a receipt because we’d get an email. The email came with no record of the transaction! We were being hustled out of our site as we were leaving Sunday at 11 am. We asked for another night free. They made us go to a full sun site at the back of the cow field. And charged us additional $15. They tell us they have 50 amp sites but all sites are down to 30 amp power. They tell you not to use but one a/c and no additional power use while running it. We have a big RV class A motorhome. Can’t use our own washer dryer when one room only being cooled. This place is not to be trusted. You might expect this treatment at grungy RV parks but not at what is being called a RPI resort. Everyone should know. Old croney buddies get the special service here, nobody else!! The woman at the desk should be fired for lying to my husband. And the manager chose to believe the employee.
Great place to stay and enjoy Central Oregon
We stayed here last month for three nights and really enjoyed it. The sites are nice and spacious. The meadow offers beautiful views of the Cascades and the gorgeous sunsets. We had to change our dates (twice!) prior to arrival and Kristina was so friendly and accommodating. Upon arrival, we were greeted warmly by the manager, Janice. The restrooms and showers were very clean and we also enjoyed the movies offered for checkout in the lobby. Another very nice perk is the raised, enclosed fire-pits they have available for campers to use and they sell great firewood. Honestly, sitting by the campfire each night we were here was such a relaxing and wonderful experience. We enjoyed talking to Janice’s husband, Coley, when he delivered the firepit to us. Our time here was so enjoyable that we chose to extend our stay and added on the third night. My only recommendation would be to add a few pet waste stations throughout the park since there is only one trash dumpster. I should also mention that our stay coincided with the start of the stay-at-home order due to the COVID-19 outbreak. While there was a feeling of uncertainty in the community as well as in the news that week, the staff here did their best to help guests to feel safe and welcome. This was much appreciated. We will definitely stay here again the next time we visit Central Oregon.
The management and staff were excellent.
We were greeted by a friendly lady and she had our registration ready and all we had to do was take care of the charges. Then we were shown have to get to our assigned RV site. Where informed of the potluck on Saturday evening and beings we are veterans invited coffee and donuts on Sunday Morning. We found the park in must improved shape and the staff very friendly compared to last year. We are looking forward to spending a week or two there next August.
