What is a Prine?

Yesterday I posted about the RV park here at the Deschutes County Fairgrounds.  I took a picture this morning of the park and below you can see the concrete pads and the paved streets.  The park is a bit more crowded today so it is not as empty as it looks here.

Last night after my post, we went for a 5 mile bike ride around the fair grounds.  This morning we went on another 8 mile ride before we headed out on our day’s adventures.

We drove about 20 miles to Prineville.  On the way in, we stopped at a vista point that overlooked the city and surrounding area.  We then went to Pioneer Park in the center of the city and had a picnic lunch.  After lunch, we drove out to Prineville lake.  It is a nice state park and some of the camp sites have full hookups, though only with 30 amp power.  Unfortunately many of the sites are small and not level.

It was a good exploration of the area but given what we found, we probably won’t try to camp there.  By the way, it is the home office of Les Schwab Tires.

There is a great golf course adjacent to the park here, but it costs $75 to play which is a bit high.

The temperature is in the low 90s today and will be as hot or slightly hotter the next two days.  We will adjust our activities to avoid the high temp times of the day.

We looked online, and Donna thinks maybe the KOA looks better for us than the fairgrounds. Trees and no fair starting there midweek.
