The sites are relatively easy to get into except for the sharp turns and dips off of the tertiary paved road nearby. It's steep enough and tight enough that most 5th wheels and any low clearance motorhome would definitely bottom out trying to get here. That could be why there are only two extremely old fire ring remnants in the area and no sign of recent camping.
The solar has been good enough to fully charge the batteries each day even though we have some tree cover and have been pushing the system (it helps to have 1,000 watts of panels on the roof). Four bars of Verizon is another bonus.
We've also been able to get our heirloom plant starts and seedlings out into the sun each day. We're trying to nurse these guys along until we can get them planted in Idaho. If it works, we'll be the first people we know of to grow these heirloom tomato, cucumber, and pepper varieties in the northern Idaho panhandle.
While the camping has been private, dark at night, and dead quiet, the real star has been Bend itself. In addition to the BLM hiking right out the door (much appreciated by the dogs), there are more high quality public land hikes around here than we can count.
And let's not forget about the brew pub scene. Bend has more craft breweries than any other town in Oregon (which is something to brag about in OR). We've only managed to hit four so far (Crux Fermentation Project and Deschutes are the two winners). In addition, for those so inclined, there are dozens of coffee shops, Costco, Trader Joe's, Whole Foods, Harbor Freight, etc., etc.
All in all, definitely a place to consider spending a little time in during the twice annual migration (North to South and South to North) each year. It's extremely rare to camp alone and have all of the commercial benefits of Bend so easily accessible.
