"We camped at Smith Rock State park in the walk-in bivouac area. It was super nice! There were plenty of spots available with gorgeous views. Also, there were bathrooms with running water and even a community dish-sink right next to the cooking area. You can only make fires and cook on your propane stove in the designated cooking area because everything is so dry, but it totally worked out. There were plenty of picnic tables and people were friendly. We brought a deck of cards and made a few friends." - Megan Hobbs, 2014 & 2015 Camper, Monkey Face Half Marathon
