The vibe at The Bender Estate
If you stayed here and have some insider info for us, let us know!
Bender Estate was in a beautiful area near Corbett, OR, 5 minutes away from Dodge Park on the Sandy River (there was closer access, but it was a little more tricky). The camp site was spacious, flat and in a nice glade of trees. There was a nice pathway to the site from the road. Parking is not real close to the site, but Robert allowed us to park on the side of the road near the trail to make unpacking easier. The campsite had a couple amenities like a platform for the camp stove, and a tent with a compostable toilet (not glamorous, but handy in the middle of the night). Robert and his partner were very welcoming and even delivered some water jugs in the evening. The only drawbacks were a dirt road that ran just 20 feet or so away from the camp; not a busy road but occasional traffic. Also, there were a couple of vacant tents pitched at the campsite when we arrived for extra gear and such. We didn't need them so they just kind of made the site look less pristine than it actually was. Overall, neat site with nice hosts a lot of potential.
Robert's place was a nice secluded stay away from the city. There is space for 2-3 average sized 4 person tents. Nearby the Sandy and is a gorgeous drive up to the site.
Would definitely go again!
