beautiful riverside campsites, open, come prepared with camping stove since it’s dry season.
A gloriously tucked away, all-year campground on the confident, adventure-inducing Deschutes River. Provides a nice balance of openness and privacy, with good space between a lot of sites, a chatty, rapid-filled river to muffle noise and high cliff walls and hills on all sides. We loved the cargo trains going by at night on the other side of the river and the sunset/sunrise through a gap in the mountains. We got here about 6 pm on a Saturday in April and there were 2 sites left, with another campground we hadn't known about 5-10 miles further down the road (see signpost in pic). Great walking and hiking, Mt. Hood and other tall peaks in view as you drive around and plenty of rafters and fisherpeople to give everything a well-rounded, sanctuary feel.
