Great Place to Stay and explore Bend
We stayed a week here and it was one of the best places we have stayed. We are traveling across the US and left from New Hampshire in February so we have stayed in a lot of RV parks. It is off the beaten path but that's one of the great things about it. QUIET! It is only 25 miles from Bend and an easy drive. Crater Lake is only an hour and a half The staff was welcoming and friendly, bathrooms were clean and nice. Rena was so nice and helpful, Kodiak the owner was super nice and welcomed us like family. Would definitely stay here again Bob and Diane
We stayed 1week at this clean and nicely kept park! We have a 41 foot , Grand Design Momentum and had no problems with our space! To our surprise during our visit we saw deer run through the park nearly every morning. But the most awesome site were the approximate 30 head of elk that you could catch a glimpse of while you were there! I was unable to catch a picture, because I was not fast enough. This is not a 5 star resort, but it is located in a great place and we felt very comfortable there. Clean grounds, a community fire pit, clean bathrooms and clean washer & dryer facility. We also went to Lake Paulina, floated the Deschuets River and the hiking trails were awesome! We will be back!
Worst Park in Central Oregon * EXTREME CAUTION*
First I understand different travelers have different expectations, but this has to be the worst park in Central Oregon. It is hard to imagine a more unfriendly, ugly, or uninviting park. I am greatly puzzled over some of the past reviews saying this is a nice park. I can only surmise that management has changed and this park is not what it once was. First this park has a website which contains a map and photos. The park is NOT like the on-line photos. The grass is all dead and the park is not maintained at all. Do not be fooled! Specific problems are: 1- No staff at park. When you arrive you must call number posted and eventually a "manager" will arrive. No staff on duty to address issues. They post the "Sheriff Department" phone number for you to call when there are problems. (Not as a precaution, but because trouble is expect it seems... wow!) 2- Trashy appearance. 3- Spaces so narrow that they will not fit large double slide outs. 4- Very unfriendly staff and owner who refuses to resolve problems (read below for details.) 5- Unsecured credit card information! Your credit card number is written on post-it style note with your information and arrival date, paper-clipped and at desk for anyone to take or see. (Office is locked as no one is there, but when you do enter with staff it is there.) 6- Park is full-time "greatly discounted" monthly guests. This park is NOT geared to weekend travelers. 7- SHARED space outside your RV door. Yes that is correct. You must share your table space with your neighbor (see photo) 8- No room to walk dog or grass area for dogs to do their "business" in. Again see photo. If you want dead grass area, you must walk your dog directly next to someone else RV. 9- Park is in LOW INCOME trashy residential area. As in run down single wide mobile home and cars which do not run on other side of RV park fence. I strongly recommend holiday travelers to avoid this park. The State Park is just a few miles up the road. But if you need "budget minded" property with no supervision, then this is your place. ========================================= Personal experience at this park follows... Upon arrival I observed the trashy condition of this park and thought I would just stay one night and move on instead of the 4 days I had planned. They refused to alter reservation to fewer days and stated I would be charged anyway. However I soon discovered that the spaces were so narrow that it will not accommodate the double slide outs of my RV. I was assured that my 36' 5th wheel, would fit in the reserved space when I made reservations. I had to walk staff to RV and show them it would not fit. They said that it would fit even though trees clearly blocked the slid-outs. They said that it was okay that branches would rub against RV... but it was not acceptable to me. Central Oregon bark and pine needles rubbing against RV would scratch it. I was told that they would not refund my money. After an argument in which the owner refused to review the situation, the staff member agreed to do a partial refund of $52 out of the $122 total charge. I did not understand the logic of this amount as I could not stay there even if I wanted to (which I sure didn't at this point.) In conclusion, this is a horrible park and advise you to sleep along side the road before spending a night at this park.. ADDITIONAL NOTE: This park is NOT listed on Good SAM and does not honor Good Sam discounts. (That should have been my first clue.)
Way off the beaten path
First the pros: this is a very clean, quiet, well-maintained park, with friendly hosts. Easy pull-through sites, although a little close together for our liking. Wifi and cable work well. The big downside for us is that it's too far off the highway to be convenient - it is 3.5 miles off I-97, and the last .75 mile is a dusty gravel road full of divets and potholes, making for a slow, rough ride in and out every day, especially when pulling an RV.
Quiet, clean and relaxing!
This jewel of a park is in a rural, relaxed, friendly atmosphere. There are many lakes, rivers and mountains near by. There is an adorable little country store just down the road. There are ample opportunities for hunting, backpacking, hiking, water sports, camping, golfing, mountain biking, and more! It is such a beautiful area with so much to explore.
