We love Bend in the winter time, turns out that we love it just as much in the summer. With no shortage of breweries, amazing food, river spots and epic desert camping you’ll find it hard (nearly impossible) to find yourself activity-less.
LOGE Camps is based out of Washington and has locations in Westport, WA, Bend, Mt. Shasta, and a brand new camp in Breckenridge, CO. Any excuse to drive to eastern Oregon is a good excuse so we packed up and hit the road for LOGE Bend.
The best part about packing for a stay at LOGE: with a focus on outdoor lovers and amenities designed to accommodate the traveller we actually packed relatively light and quickly. Almost everything you need is already there waiting for you in your cozy room. The camp is located right off Century Drive, one left turn out of the driveway and the next stop is Mt. Bachelor, almost too easy right?
We’re not kidding about packing light either. Forgot a cooler or yours only keeps ice cold for about 15 seconds? Use the provided Yeti Cooler on all your adventures during your stay, built to keep ice….well, ice. You’ll need it during the peak of the day when the temps roll into the high 80’s. Your beer and snacks will thank you unless warm or boiling beer is your thing…
How to properly hydrate AND use a ski strap in the summer
As we mentioned Bend has no shortage of fun. Two wheels are one of our many definitions of summer fun and LOGE has an amazing selection of demo bikes available. Want to cruise into town and hit the breweries and/or some river action? Snag a cruiser. Also available to rent are a variety of awesome mountain bikes ranging from hardtails to full suspension rigs, everything you need to tackle the mellow trails surrounding the camp.
Regardless of your skill level on the bike you can access some amazing trail networks 10 minutes outside of camp. Mt. Bachelors bike park is highly acclaimed and while we opted to earn our turns this trip we will be back to check out the lift accessible terrain. Phils Trails has a ride for everyone, and there are so many options. Want to practice? Check out the LOGE practice course that circles camp. It features mini ladder bridges, rock features and small berms so you can get a feel for your bike!
If you’re familiar with Bend or not at all, LOGE camps is the place to stay. Incredibly comfortable, accessible, and the staff are all-time helpful. A great place to return to after a long day exploring. 10/10 would camp again, we’re pumped to visit this winter season for some of that Bachelor pow.
