The Oregon Outback
Day 1-3 Sisters Oregon (Bend/Sisters RV Park)
- Welcome dinner – Sisters Saloon and Ranch Grill
- Visit to the Cresent Moon Alpaca Ranch – Hand fed some Alpacas and watched the shearing operation, then went to the boutique to see/buy products made from their wool.
- Tour of Sisters - shopping, ice cream cone at SnoCap and a huge pine cone pastry from Sisters Bakery.
- Free time
- Barbeque at the RV Park
Day 4-5 Summer Lake (Ana Reservoir RV Park)
- Stopped at Fort Rock to see the a volcanic landmark called a tuff ring. It is located on an ice age lake bed. If you have time, the near by Fort Rock Valley Homestead Museum is very interesting.
- Fishing - we walked to Ana Reservoir and caught enough trout for a delicious supper. Oh, and my wife caught the first fish, the biggest fish, and the most fish. She also beats me at cards.
- It snowed in the evening and the hills looked like they had been sprinkled with powdered sugar the next morning.
- Free time – then an evening trip to Cowboy Dinner Tree for a great steak or chicken supper.
Day 6-7 Lakeview (Junipers Reservoir RV Park)
- Junipers Reservoir RV Park is on a very large working cattle ranch. Lots of cattle, wildlife, birds, great night sky, trails to hike and explore.
- Free time to relax or tour Lakeview, the highest town in Oregon at 4800 feet. There are some museums, restaurants, and the Hart Mountain National Antelope Refuge is nearby.
- Evening potluck.
Day 8 Crescent Lake (Crescent Junction RV Park)
- Tour the area, visit the lake and do some exploring.
- Dinner at Manley’s Tavern. How often do you find a restaurant that serves chicken gizzards?
Day 9 Home
We are native Oregonians and still find so many places yet to visit and experience. One website said that exploring Oregon is better than Disneyland. Not sure your kids would agree but it can come pretty close.
So don’t let that RV sit and gather dust, gas it up, load up the family, and have an adventure. Either alone or with a group like Good Sam. There are many interesting sites, towns, and places in Oregon to see and experience.
If you would like more background or have interest in joining a local Good Sam Chapter please contact the Oregon State Good Sam Director at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
