Bend is a small town that lies in the shadow of the Cascade Mountains, and which rests on the Deschutes River. It is a place that has become a haven for lovers of the outdoors in recent years, but if you choose a camping option closer to the towering mountains, you can create your own peaceful getaway that takes you away from the hustle and bustle of daily life. The best way to do this is by staying in a secluded mountain rental, where you can sleep in the foothills of the Cascades. When you’re here, try climbing the Three Sisters, which all lay in Willamette National Forest, or ski down the slopes of Mount Bachelor in the winter months. Make your own unique hiking path by visiting the volcanic Pilot Butte.
