Bull Bend Campground
The access road is gravel/dirt you may want to drive slowly if you are in an RV or trailer, but your short drive off the road will be worthwhile. The campground is located on about 10 acres of land that is almost totally surrounded by the Deschutes River. The sites are large enough for the biggest RV or longest trailer, and this area is well loved by anglers.
Boat fishing or drift fishing is the best way to catch fish; motorized boating is not permitted. The water is Class II flatwater up to about 6 miles below Sunriver, where there are a number of dangerous falls.
