Bend OR lodging, base camp options?

Anyone out there have any ideas for a base camp based out of Bend OR? Myself and 2trackles and my yet to be adv named brother in law Greg are planning ride based out of Bend area Late Julyish. I/we are looking for a place where i can leave a truck and trailer for 9 days while we head south for Lassen/ Shasta and beyond. I am more than willing to pay and a good/comfortable place to launch from is priceless. We are doing this years ride to Northern California/ Southern Oregon, some of which includes OBDR and some on the CBDT. I am jazzed as i just met my Father in Law (2trackles) yesterday to review the route and get this ball rolling!
Any suggestions are surely welcomed, and if anyone wants to join us drop a line!!
Ride On TommyBelvedere!

Maybe no one in Bend anymore? Almost 200 lookies and no suggestions? Should have guessed. I did not think i was asking alot, just a good motel/hotel option and some feedback, too much i guess.
Back to my original plan, do it myself

Prineville?

I'm in Prineville, and you can leave a truck/trailer here.
Right now my guest bath is torn up but you could start from here.

checking options

DirtSoup,
I thank you for the offer, i may take you up on it! Our ride plans have changed a little, my brother in law can only ride in nid June. We are considering doing our ride now in mid June, still based out of the southern Oregon region and still looking for a 1) Hotel where we can stay 1 night before the start of the ride 2) Campground where we camp and ride from there as a start point. 3) Private residence where we can launch from and leave truck
I am inclined to think that i can find some where to hotel it and leave my truck and trailer for 9 days (length of ride) in the Bend area still , i just have not made the calls yet. I also have a crapload of suspension upgrades i want to do before this ride and a FMF pipe that has some loose rivets at the baffle to fix, so the planning goes!!
I will know more once i make a few calls.
Cheers,
TommyBelvedere

My wife and I camped five days in Sisters, OR last year at the city's campground. It's about 20 miles west of Bend.

Oh well

I understand the feeling of an outsider looking for info, so i will just leave it now. I still intend to ride out of Bend this summer, i will have to do a little extra legwork. I just thought this being a riding forum and such....
Not even a good hotel suggestion? I am not looking for a secret stash of riding rds/trail just a good place to stay and ride out of. I thank the folks that responded, and the offers. Can't wait to ride in a little warmer waether since i got soaked today!
Ride On TB!!

South of Bend is Lapine. Several motels there. I would bet someone would let you park your rig there. Might cost a few dollars for them to keep their eye on it, but would be worth it.

If you can't find anything PM me. I have a sister who lives in NW Redmond that has space for your rig.

Be safe,
Keith

Seems like some d-bags have torn up some areas around the Bend area after getting some advice? Not sure. I will keep looking on my own. I have nothing but time. Good luck you guys with your ride.

Seedy = full of Meth heads over here. Don't know of anyplace that would let you drop your truck/trailer for that length of time. Sorry.

Seeing how I have never stayed in a hotel here. I don't know what to recommend.

There is the doubletree downtown. or the hilton garden in in the old mill district. those are the bigger ones. Riverhouse on the river. Dunno what you want cheap or not cheap.

don't know where you can park your truck and trailer. maybe one of those rental joints but i think they go by the month...im not sure.
