We stayed here last year. There were a couple "Residents", but we introduced ourselves and they turned out to be nice. As for trash; We spent Earth Day Cleaning up. It was bad but manageable. HOWEVER; We returned to scout it out for another visit to Bend. We were heartbroken to see what had become of the are. There are abandoned ve... more

“Over used homeless place”

Reviewed Jul 30, 2018

Overall Rating

Trash is everywhere and too many people in the area.
The road is washed out so not safe to drive without 4x4 and very dusty.
Good 4G Verizen is the only plus.

“Once a hidden gem, now overcrowded”

Reviewed Jun 21, 2018

Overall Rating

06/20/18 Update Sheriff-involved shooting resulting in a fatality. This has been the best choice for visitors for years, but during the summer months it is crowded with "residents". The city doesn't quite know what to do except try to enforce the 14 days max limit. There was a disturbance last night where a camper was shot and kil... more

“Nice”

Reviewed May 25, 2018

I really liked this spot. I took the first one on the right once you pass the bike trail. The road is fine, a bit rutted, but I saw all kinds of vehicle going past my spot up the hill. If you are worried about it, hike up the road and check it out yourself. I thought the area was clean, with no homeless in sight. There was one... more

Yes, this area is very close to the greater Bend area. Because of it's proximity it was also overrun with people camping in tents clearly past their 2 week stay. These folks where living out here, complete with all the trash that comes with them, including piles of human waste everywhere you look. They caused no issue during our stay, ... more

“Close to town, busy, but surprisingly quiet”

Reviewed Jul 16, 2016

Overall Rating

I was shocked to find this boondocking site so close to Bend proper, but here it is. Pulled in Friday afternoon and there are vans / RVs parked very close to the main road. First night I didn't venture too far up and pulled into the first spot I could find. Unfortunately the bike path -- which has folks riding by every 20 mins or so... more

When we arrived there was a bigger rig parked in the first spot so we continued down the road a bit and saw there was a spot we could either back into or there was as spot we could have sort of pulled through. We chose the back in spot because it had more tree coverage which I guess doesn't really matter because it hasn't been hot sinc... more
