Boondocking Reynolds Pond Oregon
Now seasoned boondockers 😊 after one stay lol, we believe that anything is possible in Cupcake. Therefore, we roll out of Celilo Park heading towards our next location, where we will be boondocking at Reynolds Pond Oregon, some 231 kilometres south. Boondocking requires some fore planning to find sites that you can stay for free, and in some places that can be up to 14 days.
The apps/websites I am currently using are Campendium, Bureau of Land Management (BLM) and The Dyrt. I am finding most of our locations via Campendium at the moment. However, Boondocking Reynolds Pond Oregon was courtesy of BLM. This tiny oasis is nestled in the old junipers, tall willows and cattails.
*“The pond was built to hold excess water from the Central Oregon Irrigation District canal system”. Fishing here is popular as the pond was stocked with sunfish.
The site consists of uneven gravel spots to park our 23ft RV. It has some trees for shade and is very popular during the day.
The pond is frequented by many people to swim or fish. While others just sit back and relax bathing in the beautiful sun rays.
There are several trails leading away from the pond. With many hikers taking the chance to stretch their legs, many accompanied by the faithful, energetic dogs. Also, the pond has several dusty trails surrounding it for riding. A couple of tables and chairs are situated by the pond.
There are no toilet facilities or potable water. You must take out all your rubbish and leave the area as you found it. Unfortunately, someone had not heeded those words and there were a couple of bags of rubbish left. However, a good Samaritan came and collected it while we were there.
We had AT&T signal, while the internet wasn’t super-fast it was ok. The dirt road coming into the pond was about 1 kilometre of uneven and corrugated road.
While, the area was busy during the day, come night time it was dead. We were the only people here for the 2 nights we stayed. It gave us an uneasy feeling, but in reality, it was probably a safe place.
Boondocking Reynolds Pond, Oregon while not mind blowingly beautiful, it was certainly worth the stay and it was the best price Free!!! Located in Bend about 30 minutes away we found a great laundromat called Express Eco Laundromat.
Also, we were able to find a RV dump station $6 and potable water refill at the Shell on the corner of NW Galveston Ave and NW Columbia St Bend. Boondocking Reynolds Pond Oregon is worth at least a 1-night stay.
