If you are only wanting to stay at the fairgrounds and focus on the rally and events there, you won't need your toad. But, we live here in Central Oregon and if you want to do some exploring, bring it! There are lots of things to do and see here.

Totally agree with JohnLori, we live in Bend and central Oregon is amazing place to visit and explore.
Bring your toad you will be glad you did.
Smith Rock State Park, Deschutes Brewery, High Desert Museum, Deschutes River, drive up to Mount Bachelor and that lake area.
Deschutes National Forest, Newberry Crater just to name a few. Oh and of course Sisters, Oregon.
If you do any research into our area you will not have enough days to explore, should you choose too.

Agreed. Last time we were there it was for an FMCA rally, but there's lots to see and do in the area too. We're going to take our towed as we eat out a lot. Gotta get my wife that famous button INCOTT (I'm Not Cooking On This Trip)

How far is it to the famous steak house that's out in the middle of nowhere? Can't remember the name right now though.

I'm sure you are referring to the Cowboy Dinner Tree Restaurant near Silver Lake. From the fairgrounds in Redmond it would be just over 100 miles each way.

By the way, it's TRULY out in the middle of nowhere. There is no electricity(except generator) and they don't take credit cards.

Cowboy Dinner Tree Restaurant

Another great place to consider is the Tumalo Feed Company, just outside Bend.
