My property is in a Ponderosa covered neighborhood where everybody has about an acre. So, its close to Bend, but still feels out there enough where it makes sense to sleep in a tent. I like to sleep outside on my own property! I am lucky that half my place is in one of the few huge gaps in the trees to let the sun (and stars) shine in. 

Right now, its very low key. I have the back half of my property open for camping. I just want to provide a cheap and safe place for people to crash. I will be adding amenities as I have time (e.g. tables, snow sport repair bench, bike tools, basic kitchen, etc). But for now, enjoy a firepit, access to water, and an extension cord if you need it. Set up your hammock, play music, hang out or camp in the shade cloth covered geodesic dome. But most of all, just get out there and have fun in all the glorious places around Bend. I just want to be a good place to crash when all the official sites are reserved and you don't feel like paying a ton for a simple hotel.

DRW is all ponderosa. My front half is Ponderosa, but somehow my back part is open! Weird for DRW.

I'm in the southern most "neighborhood" that is connected to Bend. To the south is Lavalands.
