Deschutes County, Ore., is seeking proposals and plans to hire a consultant in January to conduct feasibility studies for the potential development of public or private RV parks and campgrounds on up to six areas of public lands around the county, according to KTVZ.

Four of the areas are county-owned property, one adjacent to Bureau of Land Management property at Crooked River Ranch, and the other two are U.S. Forest Service land along China Hat Road or Forest Service Road 4604, near Phil’s Trailhead, according to the request for proposals published Tuesday (Nov. 22).

The other county-owned property for consideration include over 540 acres north of Bend, near Fort Thompson Road; about 1,670 acres along state Highway 126, partly within the city of Redmond, and several properties in La Pine, along Drafter Road and Third Street.

The county has set a Dec. 16 deadline for the proposals and expects to choose from among them in mid-January.
