Campground Review: Bend/Sunriver Thousand Trails

“Great Base Camp for Bend and Crater Lake NP”

Bend Thousand Trails

Bend Sunriver Thousand Trails

This Thousand Trails is a large park with many sites that are spread out pretty well. Campground was very quiet during our visit the week following Memorial Day weekend. The sites here are large and pretty level with plenty of trees around to give you that forest feel.

Laundry room was decent although pretty outdated. Showers were nice and the water was good and hot. Water pressure at our site was good but once you turned on a faucet it dropped dramatically. We had to utilize the campground showers so glad they were clean.

Camp store was very nice and seemed to have everything you might have forgotten for a camping trip, within reason of course.

Office lady was cold shouldered when we checked in, not very welcoming at all, which I suppose is neither here nor there since we didn’t need to deal with any personnel during our stay. Just don’t expect to be welcomed when you arrive.

Off leash dog area back by the river is huge and we really appreciated that for our Dane Maggie. This is a great park for families offering tennis and basketball courts, both kids and adult pools and a large building for family reunions etc.

Would We Stay Again?

All in all we enjoyed our stay and will definitely return. This area is simply awesome and beautiful.

Nightly Cost: FREE (We are members of the Thousand Trails)
Days Stayed: 6
Hookups: These are water electric only sites but there are two dump stations available.
Pets: Allowed (off leash dog area by the river NOTE it is NOT fenced.)

WIFI: Cell signal here was great with Verizon, AT&T and T-Mobile. There is no WiFi at this park so be prepared if you need to be connected. Our weBoost cell booster was on standby just in case the signal strength wasn’t strong enough but was not needed.
