We Made it To Pelton Park

Judy and I left Caldwell, Idaho last Sat. for the final 325 mile leg of our 3500 mile trek from Avon Park, FL. to Madras, Oregon.  Only 30 miles of the final 325 miles was interstate hwy, the rest was hwy 26 through the mountains of central OR. There were times the going was tedious pulling a forty ft. fifth wheel but the scenery was always beautiful.

We arrived at the park mid afternoon and found the park and its setting to be breath taking. The park is located in a canyon with very steep walls and on Lake Sistustus.  We think we are going to enjoy our time here.

We met Jim and Lynne our co-workampers and the showed us to our RV site. Judy and I like the site a lot since we got a SAT TV signal with no problem.  The down side to living at the bottom of a 400 ft canyon is no cell service. That also means no internet service because we also use cellular for our mifi. So, I will only be able to post when we go into Madras. It looks like about once a week.

That is all for now.  Thanks for stopping by.

Next Blog: the weekend


  1. Those are some impressive blue skies for this time of year. Glad you like your site aside from the lack of cell service. That would be a challenge but also could be a blessing in disguise.

  2. It looks fabulous. No Verizon, that's not so good. Have fun, see you soon.

  3. On our way to see our Son in Portland, we've been across Oregon on 26 a few times and stayed at a CG in Prineville. Nice scenic drive. Never been to Pelton Park though.
    Maybe the next time we're through the area.

  4. Surprised that the park doesn't provide you with Wifi. Looks like a nice area to explore while you're there!

  5. No internet is rough... but it sure looks beautiful there!
