River Bend Campground in Sweet Home, Oregon

Went for a quick weekend trip camping to the River Bend Campground. It was a really relaxing weekend. Much needed after a really long work week.
Chris got to try out his new hammock from Madera.
My whole goal for the weekend was to write for my blog. I am so proud that I got a lot done; just wish that there was WiFi service. We’ll need to get a hot spot.
The kids rode there bikes in between the rain. We were hoping for really nice weather but we can’t always be that lucky.

Even dad and the dogs all went for a walk before the next rain.
River Bend Campground is one of our favorite campgrounds because almost every spot is spaced out really nicely. There’s lots of privacy.

Dad trying out Dave’s hot pickles. He thought that they were hot; I didn’t taste any hotness. We loved them though.

Dad got to try Cheeto jalapeno chips. Everyone loved those as well. One of my favorites.

Even Shelby loved the Cheetos. She doesn’t like hot stuff but she loved these.
We kept getting closer and closer to the fire because the rain kept sliding down the canopy down our backs. Chris put pool noodles on each corner to it help with some of the rain .
With the rain came a beautiful rainbow beyond the trees.

I hate leaving day. It always helps me try to push myself to work harder and try to find away to go full time but always sad to leave.

If we brought tents our campsite had a great area for a tent to hide in the trees. Would be a great playing area as well.

So grateful that the rain held out well we packed up. It always seems to bring out the worst when you try to pack in the rain.
Please be thoughtful for the next person and your camp host by making sure that you leave your area nicer than when you arrived.

There happened to be a short simple pathway leading to Dad’s campsite.

Across the drive is one of a couple of fields from in the campground. The campground has so much to offer; hot showers, restrooms, fields, playground, volleyball net, cabins, dump station, picnic area, and shelters.


  1. Had a great time even though it rained. It is a great place to go to the mountains not far from home. If anyone has an opportunity to try this park out I highly suggest going there.
