From Bend:

From Bend, take highway 97 north to Madras.  At the north end of Madras (just before McDonalds) veer to the right and continue on 97 (if you see Safeway on your right…you missed the turn…Safeway should be on your left as you head up 97)  Follow 97 for approximately 24 miles.  Just past a rest area (on your left) will be the junction of 197 (to Maupin and The Dalles) take a CAREFUL left onto paved 197 (don’t take the dirt road to South Junction!).  Watch this intersection and don’t sit in the turn lane…trucks have a tendency to cut this corner.  Continue on this highway for 22 miles and you will drop down into the town of Maupin.  You’ll see our campground on your left when you come down the hill towards the river. Continuing on highway 197,  The Oasis Resort (café and cabins) is the first business on your right just past the 'Entering Maupin' sign.  This is where your fishing trip will start, unless I’ve told you otherwise.

From Portland:

There are two routes to take to Maupin from Portland - over Mt. Hood or through the Columbia Gorge.  Both routes are beautiful drives and they are almost the same distance and driving time.  (Approx. 120 miles / 2 hrs.)  From the Portland airport, the Gorge is somewhat more direct.

        Over Mt. Hood:

        Take Hwy 26 over Mt. Hood.  Continue on this highway past the community of Government Camp and stay on Hwy 26 following signs to Maupin/Madras/Bend.  Approx. 16 Miles beyond Government Camp, take a left at the Hwy. 216 turn off.  The sign will say Bear Springs / Maupin.  Follow Hwy 216 down the mountain, through the community of Pine Grove and to the T intersection with Hwy. 197.  Take a right on Hwy. 197 and drive 3 miles into Maupin.  Continue on this highway through the small town of Maupin and you will cross the Deschutes River.  Stay on the main highway.  Watch on your left for The Oasis Resort (café with cabins) - we are the 5th business on your left after you cross the river. This is where your fishing trip will start, unless I’ve told you otherwise.

        Through the Columbia Gorge:

        From the Portland airport, take 205 South to the I-84.  Take I-84 East 84 miles to the town of The Dalles.  Take the 3rd exit at The Dalles - exit #87.  Signs will direct you to Hwy.  197/ Dufur /Bend.  Follow Hwy 197 South for 37 miles.  You will drop down into the town of Maupin.  Continue on Hwy. 197 through the town of Maupin and you will cross the Deschutes River. Stay on the main highway. Watch on your left for The Oasis Resort (café with cabins) - we are the 5th business on your left after you cross the river. This is where your fishing trip will start, unless I’ve told you otherwise.

If all else fails, get to Maupin and ask how to find the Oasis!
