Bend rests on the Deschutes River, and is surrounded by volcanic grounds and winter ski resorts. That isn’t to say it can’t be enjoyed all year round; with unique camping options that are perfect to use as your base for the holiday, you can explore Bend and all it has to offer. It wouldn’t be the same without being able to bring your best furry friend along with you, so don’t forget to choose a place that caters to the needs of your pet. To see the town’s range of wildlife exhibitions, make sure to stop by High Desert Museum, which gives an insight into the environment and history of Bend. Swim in the river of Tumalo State Park when the weather starts to heat up, hike Pilot Butte, an extinct volcano, or ski the slopes of Mount Bachelor in winter.
