Welcome to our riverfront campground! We offer this private rv and tent site directly on the water, a quiet section of the Deschutes River. This site can be combined with the covered area and adjacent cabin for group camping. One Rv per site, $20/night charge for additional Rv. There is a large graveled area for an rv or adventure vans. The site has a private dock and we have kayaks available. The campsites are backed by a well-traveled gravel road, but the sites are separated by a grove of ponderosa trees. Your rv will open to the water and groves of willows which offer a very private setting. We have abundant wildlife including a beaver who lives just steps away. The property is located in the Deschutes National Forest so campfires are not allowed during the summer, but we do provide propane fire pits.There is a large carport separating the rv campsite and the cabin. The carport offers a shaded picnic area during the hot summer days, and houses our vintage Airstream trailers in the winter. The adjacent cabin can accommodate 4 people in feather beds and is self contained with its own bathroom The cabin is set in a grassy area next to the river and has its own dock as well. This cabin can be reserved separately. We are just a couple minutes from the Sunriver resort, and minutes to Mt Bachelor and all the mountain trails, rivers and lakes. In the winter, our section of river often freezes over and you can strap on some ice skates or even cross country ski.

I don't know the area around Bend, but from the description, I expected a much more remote site. I was quite surprised to find that the site was in the middle of what seemed like an outer suburb, with houses all around, a parking lot with lights nearby, and traffic noise. The site itself was fine but it seemed overpriced (compared to KOAs and state parks at which I've camped), however, that may be the going rate around Bend. Communication was a little unclear with too much communication before my arrival regarding whether I was on the way and not enough communication the day of arrival. Instructions sent via email didn't fit my particular situation and there was no way to reach the owner or the site host until well after we'd arrived. All in all, a disappointing first Hipcamp experience.

Quiet and dusty.

Too close to a dusty road. Amenities very minimal for cost. Site represented to be nicer than it was. Cold water unclean shower. Very expensive and only a extension cord plug-in for an advertised RV site.

The site it cute, but wasn’t exactly what we were expecting based on the listing. Some parts of that were my fault, I didn’t read the final check in document well enough and it asked RVers to fill their potable water tank beforehand. I assumed when the listing said water available, that there was an actual hookup. Instead what we had was a 5 gallon water canister that leaks and wasn’t full by the time we got there.
I honestly don’t think 6 people would be comfortable there if there was an rv, but they be fine in tents. The site is closer to a semi busy road then I’d like. It wasn’t loud, but it wasn’t quite either. And you are much closer to the owners house then it appears it in the photos. In fact I didn’t see their house in the photos at all... but you can definitely see it from the site.
On the plus side, Ami is super communicative and was quick to respond to all my questions. They offer kayaks, and pickup from popular float sites for river floats. The private dock is great and there is a park super close which is nice. You can launch into the Dechutes from there.
Again, this site is nice, it just wasn’t what I needed for the weekend.

Location was good if you want to be close to The Village at Sunriver. Ami was fine to work with. There was a breakdown of some communication at one point which was frustrating but not enough to not return. The reason I wouldn't return is the "water front" and the camp spot. I paid a premium price thinking that we were going to be on the water. It was more of a swamp that was not appealing. The camp spot was ok but you are limited on how you park, and you are right on a main road. So, if you want a place to camp but not stay much at the actual spot, this would work fine. It definitely is not worth the price.

Great spot for camping. Different experience than a typical state park. Riverfront is totally worth it, we loved floating every day. Less than 30 amps so be aware if you need that. Lots of mosquitoes but comes with summer at the river. Love the outdoor shower and easy access to floating the Deschutes.

Back in ( for RV) Gravel pad with outdoor shower, water and 20 amp power. When we pulled in, the well was having issues due to drought bringing water levels down. We were just there for an overnight so were ok, had we been there longer it would have been problematic . They were going to be working on the well to resolve the problem. They thought they had it working well enough for us to have running water overnight, but sadly no. Water pressure was a trickle. My son tried the outdoor shower and couldn’t get the soap out of his hair which left him feeling itchy the rest of the day. The hosts did provide a carboy of potable water in the outdoor kitchen area and we had brought a gallon or so with us., but the RV tank was dry because wee weren’t planning on dry camping. We were hooked up to the water line , but didn’t have enough pressure to wash dishes or brush teeth.
Of course none of this is the host’s fault. It just impacted our stay. I would have liked them to discount our stay a bit as a gesture of good will, but such is life.
Hosts provided kayaks for paddling on the water, picnic table, and 2 chairs for sitting around propane fire ring (bring own propane) . Across the street from park with River access for swimming. Spot feels private although you are close to a low traffic gravel road. We loved hearing the wind in the trees.
