1 site · Lodging3 acres · Bend, OR
The Wood Shedteau is located just outside the city limits of Bend, Oregon. With downtown Bend about five miles away, and everything else central Oregon has to offer within reach, there are endless opportunities for adventure. The Wood Shedteau has electricity and a wifi signal. Our listing provides a camping-like experience to enjoy nature, wildlife, and our property. Sleep in the Shedteau, or bring your tent or small RV. Parking: the gravel driveway is west of our main driveway and marked with a tiny orange cone. Once you park you will see the shedteau straight ahead. If you plan to arrive after dark feel free to tell us and we will leave a light on; it can get very dark. Feel free to check out our property. We always like to recommend happy hour at the pond! Bathroom: there is a camp toilet in the outhouse by the shedteau with spare bags to change out the toilet as much as you would like. Just tie off your old toilet bag, place it in the garbage can, and replace with a fresh bag and mulch however often you would like. Spare toilet paper and baking soda are stored in the cabinet beneath the toilet. If you prefer flushing toilets pine nursery park is 0.5 miles from our house and has flush toilets and sinks. It is also a lovely place to walk around! Plus it has a great fenced dog park for your four legged friend. Sink: The seasonal sink outside the shedteau provides potable water with temperature controlled via the spigot at the shower. Please feel free to leave any dirty dishes in the sink. If you are here when the sink is turned off (due to freezing pipes) you can get fresh potable water from the spigot near the shower. Shower: The seasonal outdoor shower is located up the hill form the shedteau. The temperature is controlled at the spigot. Soap and towels provided. Sleep: We provide a full size bed with a memory foam mattress pad and sheets. There are 2 6ft sleeping cots tucked under the bed. You may want to consider a sleeping pad to place on the cot. Weather conditions: As a reminder it can be cold at night and hot during the day here in the high desert, the Shedteau now provides heating and air-conditioning via a mini-split ductless system. Privacy: There are curtains on the windows and a privacy screen that can be placed in front of the French doors. This property is our primary residence and we are usually around but will respect your privacy! Please let us know if we can be of any assistance during your stay.

Camping near Bend guide

Overview

Set in Central Oregon's high desert, just east of the Cascade Range, Bend is a small but growing city that attracts outdoor recreation fans with year-round sunshine and easy access to some of the state's most spectacular natural areas for hiking, mountain biking, and skiing. The Deschutes River, a tributary of the Columbia River, flows right through town, offering white-water rafting and fishing, while Smith Rock State Park—the de facto birthplace of sport climbing—is only a short drive away. While outdoor fun reigns supreme here, it’s also a bit of a foodie destination, with a wide range of local breweries. Whatever your camping style, you'll find your dream spot near Bend, where tent sites, RV parks, yurts, and farmsteads complement the state parks and national forest.

Where to go

Along the Deschutes River

One of Central Oregon's biggest draws, the Deschutes River and its tributaries, lakes, and reservoirs attract boaters and paddlers, particularly in the summer months. Private and public camping opportunities abound near the river, especially given it passes through some state parks, including The Cove Palisades State ParkLaPine State Park, and Tumalo State Park, a riverside gem with canyon trails, swimming holes, and excellent rainbow trout fishing. Unfortunately, this pristine spot is no secret—book early to secure your spot in the summer.

Ochoco National Forest

Spread out over nearly a million acres, quiet Ochoco National Forest offers a diverse mix of canyons, forest, arid high desert, and lakes. It's a great place to camp, with both dispersed campsites and campgrounds, plus plenty of cabins and private options available to book.

Willamette National Forest

Directly west of Bend, the Willamette National Forest is among the most popular spots in Oregon for hiking and camping. About a fifth of the forest is designated wilderness, accessible only on foot or by horseback, making the area particularly popular for multi-night backpacking trips.

When to go

Bend attracts lovers of the great outdoors throughout the year, with all sorts of summer fun, including rock climbing, hiking, mountain biking, and river rafting. Winter sports enthusiasts flock to the area in the cooler months to ski the slopes of Mt. Bachelor, the crown jewel of the Deschutes Forest. Summers are generally hot and dry, and this time of year is certainly the busiest for camping, so book ahead to sleep under the stars.

Further, in the mountains, Scout Lake features a popular campground and Sandy swimming beaches. When it comes to staying cool, it doesn't get better than the Cascade Lakes. Paddle or cruise your boat across Elk Lake, or kick back on your hammock at a seasonal waterfront campground.
