By far, one of our favorite parks! Big rig friendly, level sites, easy to navigate, no issues with trees/limbs. (No sewer hook-ups at our site) Friendly and efficient check in. Pickleball courts, pool, lodge, on-site store, laundry. We love to hike and explore outside of the parks we stay at, rarely use the amenities of the park, but the few things we utilized worked well and were available. Tons of things to do in the Bend/Sunriver area, and would definitely stay here again. - RiversedgePA

This is an older park with no sewer hook-ups but there is a dump station. Confusing lay out, the roads thru the park are narrow and run both directions. There are a lot of owned spaces in this park. - rlrsar

This was one of our favorite Thousand Trails locations so far (and we've been to quite a few over the US during the past 6 months). While there was still some snow on the ground and most of the facility was dormant for the off-season the staff was extremely friendly and we love the Bend / Sunriver area! If it's this nice in April, we'd love to see it in the summertime when everything is open. The only drawback is the lack of sewer hookup, but if you're prepared this is a wonderful park! Bend (the south part of town) is just 20 min away (north side 35min) and has everything you need. Such a great town! - Few Miles

So I will say the staff is very friendly at the resort, the RV park. On the other hand, needs some attention. Very fine pumas, needs gravel or some sort of base - the sites are very dusty. We ended up leaving and not staying. Lots of unleashed dogs (we have two, so not dog haters). Sites were fairly close and very noisy, music, dogs barking and noisy kids (I have two so not kid haters), other camper's kids running through our site etc., so rules are not enforced. When we made the reservation, we did ask for a more private site and we were told they would accommodate with no problem. That was not the case. Normally I would not review if I didn't stay, but they did charge us for one night even though the lady told me that they refunded the entire amount. And it wasn't that we didn't spend any money there either - we rented a patio boat and paddle boards from them the next day that we had reserved, and made purchases in the store to the tune of $575.00. This was labor day weekend so might not be normal, but I won't be back to find out. We ended up dry camping down the road a bit in a National Forest campground that was very nice. - takk28

Stayed Memorial Day Weekend. Several feet of snow on the ground but sites and roads were clear. Most sites wooded and shaded. Power and water only, sewer dump station on site, free. Camp host was great! Very helpful. Walking distance to lake and resort. We will definitely return. Reservations only so call ahead. - Pbeh

We live in Bend, Oregon and decided to try East Lake for a few nights of local camping. First of all the road off Highway 97 to the RV Park is two lane, paved and very nice.
We travel in a 36 foot motorhome and did not take our tow car with us.
we opted for an "interior" site pull thru, we stayed in Site #40 it was on the end. The campground is laid out very nicely, the middle sites are pull thru the others are back-in. We had 50 amp and water hook up there is a dump station as you leave.
Our site was very large, clean, fire ring and picnic table. The campground is maintained so well and the campground host is on site and very helpful and friendly.
We camped five days here, four nights and it was great. We were able to walk across the road to the resort and East Lake. The area is breathtaking and you will no lack things to do or see.
Big rigs would fit into the interior sites of this campground, in fact the host told us they had a 46 foot RV stay there and had room.
There is NO wifi and there is no cell service at all. This was not a problem for us but if this is a must for you this campground would not work.
We enjoyed the campground and the nightly camp fires and will stay here again. We travel a great deal and have stayed at a lot of campgrounds etc, this is a very very nice one.
We booked our reservations on line and then had something come up so we called and talked to the owner and moved our dates and they were very nice and helpful about it.
There on line site for East Lake Resort will give you a map of the campground so you can see what the sites are and their location. Suggest bigger rigs select site in pull thru's. - OregonGirl

We stayed in Little Fawn campground within the Paulina Lake area. A little down the road from Paulina Lake Campground. A smaller campground with sites right on the water. Boat ramp available. it is beautiful and was quiet this time of year. Easiest to get a site out of season. - saturn7

Located in the Newberry National Volcanic Monument, Paulina Lake is the first campground within the caldera. The campground is located on Paulina Lake with a boat ramp available. The sites are located in the woods with ample space for setting up tents or campers. The facilities include flushing toilets and water throughout the campground. The facility does require a $10 fee for entering the National Monument. The site was level and wood was available. The park was beautiful with nice hikes around the Paulina and East Lake, on an Obsidian Lava Flow, and to the top of Paulina Peak. The night we stayed was cold (35 degrees), but the sky was clear and the stars beautiful. There are two small resorts with stores and restaurants in the monument and a small visitor center. - dmaerz

Typical small NFS campground. Great camp host. Very quiet except for the occasional train. Some pull though sites. Lots of space between sites. We would have been able to get into half of them at 43'. The trees could use trimming. Pit toilets. Good dog walking in the surrounding woods. Nice stream in the meadow next to the camp sites to play in or just enjoy. Drought made sites and roads quite dusty. Good water available, but no threads on spigots to attach a hose so fill up before arriving. - bobcovey

$10 is Coast to Coast rate. We paid an extra $5 for 50 amp service, and once paid, found out after checking in they only allow you to run ONE A/C unit. So was kind of waste of $$ paying extra. Park is well managed, and very pleasant people (husband/wife) checking you in. Sites are grass/dirt, level, and all hook-ups worked as expected. Big Rig friendly, and easy to navigate within the park. We love to hike and explore areas outside the parks, and rarely use any "amenities" of the parks when we travel, so have little to add with that regards. Much to do and see outside of the park, and would stay here again. If you like to play pickleball, there is a great group in LaPine that play inside at the community center. - RiversedgePA

I rarely plan a campground like this, but these folks don't "get" hospitality. As a full timer, from time to time I need packages delivered. I inquired about how to address a package so I could receive it when I arrived, I was told "we don't accept ANY packages". Ok... then I don't stay there, give you my money, or a recommendation. Period. I had expected this to be a satisfactory park. They are a Passport America park and one always appreciates the opportunity to save money. They are also in a good location (but other parks are as well.)
Expect an open meadow and dusty roads - especially if it hasn't rained in a few days. It does get below freezing at night so be prepared with water and to use your furnace. - alansills

Clean RV park, things were in good condition and worked fine, even the wifi. Spaces and turns were tight in a 43' DP motorhome, but we did it! Our site was gravel and pretty level. The park is central to lots of fun things to do, whether one wants to hike, fish, ride, do the ale trail, etc. - Stu-and-Alicia

Spaces are too tight, can't open our compartment doors due to the neighbor's car parked so close. Have to keep our windows closed because of neighbors smoking - dd2some

Small park right off 97 HWY. Asphalt drive with rock sites. Sites are fairly level. Easy to get around in with 43' 5th wheel. You do have road noise and trains. Convenient location to several parks including Crater Lake. Sites were very close together. - KSTraveler
