Best kid activities in Oregon

Could someone give me a must do list of things to do with our children in Oregon?

10 year old and 7 year old that like the outdoors. Going TImberline Lodge to Bend to Crater Lake and then down to Redwood National Forest. Any help would be great.

For the Bend area, see this article and the things to do, as well, select "things to do" top of this page. High Desert Museum is very popular with the kids. As are the geologic "finds" there; they are in the article, below.



You got quite a long list, and websites, of things to do/to see in and around the Redwoods on your other post.

Quite frankly, there are so many things to do and see in the Bend area and the Redwoods, that you'll find them by checking out the leads voyaging has given you...plus, just seeing them as you go along. There are some pretty long stretches that the kids might find tiresome (including Crater Lake), so make sure they have plenty of books, puzzles and games along the way.

For redwoods, click on this blue link... tripadvisor.com/ShowTopic-g28958-i237-k66897…

then see post #2 and click on the blue links there :-)

Unless you are planning on taking the hike down to the water, there is not much to 'do' at CL for active children.

Check out Oregon Caves between Grants Pass and Crescent City.
