Depending on how define dry this may be a good or bad thing. In our case, they are not banning alcohol or recovering from a flood but have a dead well pump. It won't be fixed for few days, so there is no running water at all in the park till Wednesday. Any suggestions on campgrounds in Bend, OR? We can stay there and refill tanks off site when needed but are looking at options close to town. We have not been here for 23 years and it looks more like city with a current 81k population.

I notice you have everything for sale. What's happening?
I have been a tent camper since my Boy Scout days long, long, ago. Now I need to get up off of the cold ground to get a good nights rest, a truck camper seems to be the best choice. I am here to learn as much as I can.

Only our Arctic Fox is for sale. We're looking at Host's manufacturing in Bend. We were limited what my F250 could haul and no longer have that limitation with the new truck.

Did you find a place to stay?  I can't find any campground in the immediate vicinity of Bend. . .closes seem to be forest roads China Hat and Conklin roads.

Just north of town is a nice state park within 5 miles of Host's manufacturing site, but they only have tent sites available through next weekend. There are plenty of private parks/resorts within Bend that have availability, but we were looking for suggestions. Bend has a number of legal boondocking areas we have used but will decide where to stay to dump and refill today. 22 micro breweries are now in Bend - The TC Life would enjoy the variety offered here.

The interstate system of highways is fine for getting where you need to be in a hurry, but it's the road less traveled that is more enjoyable. Take in the scenery before life passes you by in a blur.

If you happen to see how Scandia RV park is let me know what you think. In the past I looked at that park. We are still contemplating our week long trip the start of April, that is during Cody's spring break. Bend is about a 7 hour drive from the Spokane area.

You may want to check out Sunriver/Bend campground (part of Thousand Trails) if you visit. This is where we originally planned to stay before their well pump failed. We stayed at Scandia last night. It is clean with large sites but more than we normally would pay for camping at $45/night. We would have stayed at Tumalo State Park, but you need reservations if you want hookups and they have no dump station if you stay in a tent site.

We may also be back in Oregon in April but really want to loop through the southwest US in the Spring or Fall next year and I need to save my vacation time.
