If you want nice, this is it; a camper’s campground among the pine trees
March 7, 2017
It was full during our stay. Advanced reservations is highly recommended. Very popular for access to Sisters, Redmond, Bend in high desert of Central Oregon. We’ve camped here regularly over several years and never disappointed.

Most recent stay was 6/13/16. We camped in a Tear Drop style RV, only 15' long w/o toilet or shower. We like to eat outdoors using the picnic table and set up our dining canopy for sun and weather protection. We rely on condition of campground's facilities near our site, so our critique is focused in that area.

We did get close to restroom/hot shower building with dishwashing station. This campground is well laid out with restrooms placed in middle of loops and sites circle all around for easy access. Showers are unisex, private individual rooms with changing area with lockable door. Showers were clean, fully tiled walls and floors w/hooks, with shelves for your stuff and wall bench for seating. Not cramped at all and good water pressure and spray. Community restrooms and sinks are in another part of building.

Just awesome park for smaller RVs up to 35’ and tents with sturdy picnic table, fire pit, paved roadways, asphalt RV pads. Both full hook-ups and dry-camp. Some sites could be problem for the Big Rigs. Be sure to check site lengths. Only CON: No RV dump or potable water fill station. Find one at Creekside Municipal Campground in Sisters.

We stayed here in a Teardrop Trailer.

Convenient location is best highlight
July 28, 2013
This was sort of a different camping trip for us, not really an “outdoorsy” one, as we really just wanted to be in Bend, shopping, eating and sightseeing. So I can't really speak to any outdoor activities at the park. It was bloody hot the weekend we stayed, so perhaps I was a little more “gripe-y” than usual. Sites are small (especially on the inside of the loop) and many are on raised, gravelly, cement pads. Irritating was the ground near our site. It was just sandy gravel, horrible to walk through to the bathroom, not at all like walking on a well-trodden forest path. I guess that’s the high desert? Bathrooms ok. Love the IDEA of solar showers, but they were actually cold, take forever to get even tepid, at least in the morning, and impossible to adjust the angle to actually hit your body where you want it to. And there are no toilets AT the shower building? So you have to pee one place and walk to a shower somewhere else. The most annoying thing at Tumalo, however, is the “CAMPGROUND FULL” sign. I honestly don’t know that they ever take it down. I have never seen a ranger in the actual booth. The night we stayed, some poor girl was charging her iPhone in the bathroom, trying to find another campground. She could have stayed in any of 3 sites around us that were supposedly “reserved” but that no one ever came to stay in. SO MAKE RESERVATIONS! Best thing was the chipmunks. They were fun.

We stayed here in a Tent.

Great little State Park
May 28, 2012
Some of the sites are a bit tight for slideouts but overall a nice little state park. The rangers and camp hosts were very nice. The location near Bend is nice with lots of trails for bikes and hikers. Didn't use the restrooms or showers. Would stay here again.

We stayed here in a 5th Wheel.
