I like to get away from it all and go deep into the forest. In a 29′ rig, that can be challenging. But Challenging never stopped me!
Don’t let size stop you from exploring remote forest roads and out-of-the-way camp sites!
Here’s a list of some of my favorite places I’ve boondocked in my RV.
Sisters Oregon- Deschutes National Forest
These two locations were very pretty and remote – and only about 6 miles to Sisters and 18 miles to Bend!
- NF Road 1513-200, GPS Location: 44.243444, -121.615833. Directions: Take 242 West from Sisters and then a left on NF Road 15 past the high school (about 2-3 miles maybe). Go about 3 miles (the paved road turns to gravel about 1 mile in) to the Y and stay to the left onto NF 1513. Travel about 2.8 miles to NF 1513-200, it’s a red gravel road on the right, turn there. Take the first right about .6 miles down the red rock road. Travel up the dirt road about 1/4 mile to the clearing. There’s sun, shade, plenty of room for my 29′ rig, a cargo van and a car. Had good 4G! And other than 2 cars that went by on Labor Day we only saw one group on horeseback in the 2 weeks we were there. Click here to see view on Google Map.
- NF Road 1514-800, GPS Location 44.236015, -121.601721 Directions: Take 242 West from Sisters and then a left on NF Road 15 past the high school (about 2-3 miles maybe). Go about 3 miles (the paved road turns to gravel about 1 mile in) to the Y and stay to the left onto NF 1513. Travel about 3.3 miles to NF 1514-800 on your left. Take the dirt road about a mile, cross the creek and continue up NF 800 (it veers right). I camped about 1/3 mile up in a clearing on the left. It was nice to be close to the creek, had ok 4g/3G (not as strong as location #1), and we had more traffic. Click here to see it on Google Map.
About a mile from Sisters, OR
- NF Road 4606 off of Three Creek Road- GPS Location: 44.258279, -121.529989. Left off of Three Creek Road in Sisters, Oregon. Had good 4G. Close enough to hwy 20 that I could hear the traffic and there were houses about 1/4 mile away, but still very private with very little traffic, unless you got close to the bike trails.
