Camp Sherman is located on the mighty Metolius River, just a few miles from Bend and with impressive views of the majestic Mt. Jefferson. Highlights here include searching for the strange and scenic ghost rocks -- unique rock formations, also known as the 'Oregon HooDoos' that were revealed after a wildfire.
Nature lovers will have a field day in Camp Sherman. The river provides a lot to do in this part of the world, protected as one of America’s Wild and Scenic Rivers, it's an impressive natural wonder. Elsewhere, Wizard Falls is the place to be where the Hatchery raise more than 4 million baby trout to be released into the waters of lakes and ponds all over the state. Visitors can stroll the grounds here and enjoy the scenic atmosphere.
To get active, biking, hiking and backpacking are great options in the scenic terrain. Pack a bag and set off to find the Hoodoos (eerie rock formations) in a hillside overlooking Lake Billy Chinook in Cove Palisades State Park. You'll be able to combine fun with fabulous views of the River Metolius.
Visit during September for lovely warm days but slightly chilly nights.
