Hello. We are planning a trip to Oregon in late July, with our children 9 & 5. We will be spending a couple of days in Corvallis to visit relatives. I would appreciate thoughts on "must sees" elsewhere with the remaining 6 days we'll have. We do not want to spend all our time in the car. The kids enjoy swimming and want to try horseback riding and fishing. We have heard that Crater Lake is a must. Is there a nice lodge or resort somewhere near Crater Lake or Bend that we could use as a home base? [While we enjoy outdoor activities, I'm not interested in roughing it when it comes to lodging.] Is it reasonable to stay in Bend with a day trip to Crater Lake? Has anyone been to the Seventh Mountain Resort? Any recommendations on fishing or horseback riding providers? Should we skip the coast and do that another time?
I appreciate any input to help us make this a trip that all can enjoy (which also means Mom doesn't want to have to plan and do everything!!)
