Paradise near town

This campground is amazing. There is so much to do here at park. There is hiking, fishing, swimming in the lake (its cold be prepared). In Late July you can pick Huckleberries in the Park. Bike riding is a way to get around. There are hot showers and flush toilets located at various areas throughout the park. It is also very close to town if you decide you don’t want to cook every night.

First to Review
Off the beaten path

We needed a place to stay overnight. This small park has several loops. It is dry and hot, only pine trees for shade. They have built some very nice boardwalks through out the loop we stayed in which was nice as they were short cuts to the restrooms. The Deschutes River is close by, which probably has some sort of recreation associated with it. The restrooms were nice and the showers were unbelievable. They were individual, locking rooms which was nice for security, no one else could come in. Very clean. The only reason it did not get 5 stars was because it was so dry and dusty there (high mountain desert).

Nice place to be

This is another state park we camped at. It is near the town of Bandon, which is a sweet little town that is not too touristy. Clean showers and restrooms, nice shaded campsites, trails for hiking and biking. Ranger led programs for children.

Great place on the coast

We have camped here numerous times and have always had a great experience. There is hiking, swimming (in the ocean), and biking. They have ranger led programs for kids. The pads are all level, water, power and sewer hook-ups available. The restrooms with showers are great.

#1 in my book

This quiet campground, nestled in the Sawtooth Mountains is awesome. There are very few hookups (if any), but the surroundings make up for it. There is boating (you can rent at the lodge), fishing, hiking, and whitewater floating. It is difficult or near impossible to reach in winter, but summer makes up for it.

Best Around for Families

We love going to McCall to Ponderosa. In the summer there is swimming, hiking, mountain biking and boating (if you have one) and in the winter there is cross country skiing and snowshoeing in the park. In the summer you can pick wild huckleberries if you time it just right. It is quiet and peaceful.
