What a surprise for a state park. Full hook up ( including sewer). All sites nestled under beautiful, tall pines. Short trails to the river. Rest room and showers-clean. Park hosts very nice. There are campfire rims at each site and fire wood can be purchased for $5. Sites are spacious. No WiFi but who cares when the night sky is your screen. Price is $32 for full hook up. Quite a deal.
Yes I would return

Good Park For First Timers
This was our first trip and experience setting up our travel trailer. Roads are paved and sites are well marked. We stayed on the "Middle Loop" in site 74. It seems like the inside of the loop is pull-through and outside is back-in. Electrical service had 30, 50 amp. Sewer and water worked well. There were lots of small trails to walk along, many leading to the river. Lots of kids on bikes and scooters, so be careful when driving around. The hosts were very friendly and had firewood for sale. One big drawback is there is very little privacy. Expect your neighbors to hear you and vice versa.

Great River And Hiking/biking Nearby
Good RV sites, level, deep, some pull-throughs, full hookups in Middle and South loops.

We happened upon this state park because our original mountain biking destination was still under snow. There is a great trail system along the river, all green trails but very scenic. Pine needle forest floor single and double track. Make sure you go to the Falls River trail and take a short side trip to see the falls. Very pretty!! Below the falls looks like a great swimming hole on a hot day. The campsites are far enough apart to be private. The bath house is clean. We were in the middle loop which seemed to be the least busy. Verizon cell service is weak but manageable. We would stay here again for sure!

Good value If Somewhat Charmless
The good: $29 gets you a level, full-hookup site. Many pull-through sites as well. Picnic tables are in good repair and level. Sites somewhat close together and ground cover is sparse but sites are deeper than usual so if you're tenting you can get some space between you and neighboring RVs.
There's a separate pet exercise area outside the campground. We often saw dogs unleashed--that that as a positive or negative as you will.
Pet-friendly cabins also available.
Bathrooms/showers are clean, heated, and sinks have hot water.

Middle and South Loops have full hookup, including sewer, water and 30 or 50 amp electrical. The North Loop is older, and has only water and either 20 amp, or in a few sites 30 amp electrical. Check your proposed site before reserving. Oregon State Parks do a good job on their campgrounds, and this one is fully up to the high standard they aspire to. Much quieter than most.

This is a standard Oregon State Park campground. It does not have full hookups, only power and water. There is a pleasant walk along the Deschutes river. Most of the Oregon State parks have more to offer but this is convenient and quiet when you need to stop for the night.
