Tumalo State Park – 16/198

Oregon State Park #16 of 198!

For our final camping trip of 2022 we chose Tumalo State Park. We’d heard great things about the campground. It’s incredibly popular so you have to make reservations months in advance. However, there is a great day-use area if you’d like to bring a picnic lunch, play in the water, or even bring your floatation devices for a relaxing drift down the Deschutes. On our first day we sat and relaxed by the river itself, the kids played, and we watched other families having a great time as well. The campground was comfortable and even had its own play area for the kids.

Our Story:

I’m an adventurous soul who feels most at home surrounded by trails, trees, and water. Hiking is my peace and meditation, and I am so glad to be sharing this with the whole family. In Spring of 2022, our family took a weekend trip to the Oregon Coast and it was just as I remembered it when I was young. Breathtaking beauty, misty rain, and vast greenery. We visited several locations down the central coast that weekend and I craved more. We passed so many State Parks that looked intriguing, but I knew nothing about them, so I bought a book about the Oregon State Parks for future trip planning. When I was reading the book I realized… I want to see then ALL! So the family decided to embark on the adventure of visiting every State Park in Oregon (and hopefully moving on to Washington after).
