Our family hasn’t stayed at a Thousand Trails Campground before and this location wasn’t far from our home base we were leaving behind. I want to start this review about this rv park with a reminder several of the amenities were not available because of closures, but the majority was because of the other reasons.
Let us start by going over a quick rundown of what is typically available and go from there. Bend Sunriver Thousand Trails has close to 200 RV sites which all have water and electric, plus a BBQ pit and a picnic table. There are no asphalt roads, but there are roads with packed gravel. This park does not have sewer hook-ups at any of the sites, but there are two rv dump sites at the park. There is one near the front of Bend Sunriver Thousand Trails and another near the back of the park. The park has six bathrooms with showers throughout the park which makes the no sewer hook up thing much more manageable.
The park has four sets of horseshoes next to a shady gazebo, and the fun and games do not stop there. Bend Sunriver also has a basketball court with two hoops, a mini golf course and tennis courts. Next to the basketball court is a playground area which is composed of a swing set and a climbing apparatus. There are two other playground areas throughout the park, too. This park also has two swimming pools and a hot tub which is located outside.
Now, let’s turn our attention to some minor problems we encountered while at Bend Sunriver Thousand Trails. First, even though the outdoor facilities were open and able to be used, we were told upon check-in their equipment had gone missing and so we would need to provide our own. My husband was even told all the balls for pool had gone missing. I think these were minor because it didn’t deter most of our kids from enjoying the stay. The park has a lending library and a lodge, but they were closed because of the pandemic. But again I don’t feel like these things affected our stay.
The park had bunny rabbits all over the place, and some of them allowed us to feed them. We even saw a variety of birds and a small family of deer. Overall, I feel like this was an enjoyable experience for our first Thousand Trails and we look forward to coming back once things open up again and things are back to normal.
