This campground in Central Oregon’s River Country boasts 12 cabins, two vintage trailers, and a classic diner that serves as an homage to the property’s former life as one of the state’s oldest fishing camps.

If rock climbing is your jam, then nearby Smith Rock State Park (and the rapidly growing Oregon city of Redmond) should pique your interest, as will the hotel’s new plant-forward restaurant and tavern-style lobby bar.
