Lodging

Hoodoo Recreation is the operator of one of the nicest RV parks in Central Oregon, Black Butte Resort, located under the tall pines of Camp Sherman.

Both the motel and the RV Park have barbecues available to our guests

Camp Sherman Store & Cabin

Camp Sherman Store & Cabin

A gentle breeze stirs in the treetops, the river murmurs and meanders. Drift a dry fly on a gentle bend, eat dinner on the patio and watch the sunlight, filtered through the needles, turn to orange glow in the evening.  The view from Black Butte in the morning, a walk in wildflowers along the river, a private picnic for two – this is the Metolius, these are the moments we remember.  Year-round rustic charm and cozy comfort are our hallmarks with a queen bed and a hide-away queen, a modern kitchen and an elegant bathroom. Nestled in the Ponderosas and paneled in warm, knotty pine, our cabin is your base camp, your retreat, your getaway, a stone’s throw from the Metolius.
