Tumalo State Park is a state park in Deschutes County
. Tumalo rests along Oregon's spectacular Deschutes River
. The campground is simultaneously close enough to the town of Bend
to make an quick jaunt to the grocery store, but far enough away to escape the commotion. Its location makes it an ideal stepping stone for any type of outdoor activity lush green golf courses, clear blue-ribbon trout steams, pristine alpine lakes, miles upon miles of challenging yet scenic hiking and mountain bike trails, and of course the Cascade Mountains are all within easy reach.
Winter recreation is just up the road at Mt. Bachelor
where skiers and snowboarders can experience some of the best powder in the state.Take a hike and explore one of the river trails as they gently wind through canyons created by the untamed river. Watch deer forage for food just as the sun creeps below the rim of the canyon. Listen as coyotes perform their haunting call, announcing the sunset and the coming darkness. Smell the sweet fragrance of sage and juniper as the dew drips off its branches.
