This campground is near Bend and it is much closer for Tammie only about 4 to 5 hr I think its about 6 from seattle and about 3 for me. The weather is always nice in the summer so we could plan any time during the summer months and be warm with out rain! The web site has a vedio I'll see if I can post it. . The area is another place I would love to move too.

UMALO STATE PARK

Nestled in the heart of sunny central Oregon, Tumalo rests along Oregon's spectacular Deschutes River. The campground is simultaneously close enough to the town of Bend to make an quick jaunt to the grocery store, but far enough away to escape the commotion. Its location makes it an ideal stepping stone for any type of outdoor activity you could possibly dream of: lush green golf courses, clear blue-ribbon trout steams, pristine alpine lakes, miles upon miles of challenging yet scenic hiking and mountain bike trails, and of course the Cascade Mountains are all within easy reach.

Winter recreation is just up the road at Mt. Bachelor where skiers and snowboarders can experience some of the best powder in the state. If you are not fond of the lifts, there are miles of groomed Nordic trails and tons of snowy back-country areas to explore.

At dawn or dusk try casting for rainbow trout as they sip at mayflies and caddisflies. Grab your raft and float with your feet dangling into the cool water during the heat of the summer. Take a hike and explore one of the river trails as they gently wind through canyons created by the untamed river. Watch deer forage for food just as the sun creeps below the rim of the canyon. Listen as coyotes perform their haunting call, announcing the sunset and the coming darkness. Smell the sweet fragrance of sage and juniper as the dew drips off its branches. Sit quietly in the evening and let the stars put on a show of their own. All of this plus a quiet, quaint campground where your family can stay in a yurt, or camp in your own tent or RV.

As I recall the hotel was dog friendly, but don't know if it would be friendly enough to accommodate a full house of dog lovers and their pets....

It will be interesting to see where this leads...

Plus I drive an SUV- and with gas so expensive it costs me just under $100 to fill up. I would prob have to fill up at least 2, maybe 3 times just to get up to Oregon- then do the same thing coming home!! That would be a very expensive playdate for me!
ha ha ha, whoops, sometimes I forget you are another 3+ hrs south of me! too bad Ca is SO long, like 14 hrs top to bottom or something like that... on the East coast we could go through 10 different STATES in that time!
besides, math is SOOOOO not my strong area! LOL Last night I was asking my son how far it was to this city or that city and my 'estimates' were off by like 2-3 HOURS! LOL sooooo, I can NOT be trusted with numbers!

I don't know if the camping idea is going to work with as many dogs as we will have ... that Tumalo State park said only 2 yurts allow dogs...
What about looking for a rental house or pet friendly hotels (although I think splitting a house would be cheaper) in Eugene or Bend area? we would be willing to drive as far as needed to find a Great place that works for everyone with an area for the dogs!
