With the coronavirus pandemic sweeping the globe, please note that events, business hours, and local regulations are changing by the day. One thing that’s constant? Our need to protect each other and ourselves from COVID-19. Please practice social distancing and wash your hands often. The Oregon Health Authority requires face coverings in indoor public spaces, but we urge you to take it a step further and mask up anytime you’re in crowded parks or outdoor spaces. Thanks for doing your part to stop the spread of COVID.
Camping in Oregon is plentiful, varied, and provides a fun outdoor experience. Bend campgrounds and RV parks are a wonderful alternative to staying in a hotel, motel or vacation rental. If you are one of those who prefer to rough it a little, then Bend has quite the selection of RV resorts, including boutique trailer camping at The Camp, camper rentals via Ramblin Vans or Cascadia Vehicle Tents, and many other options to make your stay very enjoyable.
For a night in the great outdoors, pack your gear and head out to one of the many family-friendly campgrounds in Deschutes National Forest where you can pitch your tent (or park your rig) on the Deschutes River or near the Cascades Lake highway, giving you access to bird-watching, mountain biking, sightseeing, hiking, fishing, and even soaking in natural hot springs.
