Lodging in Maupin, Oregon
As far as I know, the town of Tygh (pronounced "ty") Valley has no lodging. There may be camping spots and rv spots at Pine Hollow reservoir. I will find out, and add that information here later.
A good option is: stay in Maupin. It is on the famous Deschutes River, and it is only ten miles away. It has lodging, an excellent grocery store with an in-store deli, a gas station, multiple restaurants, two excellent year-round full-service fly shops with guide services, and other amenities. There is a decent pub in the famous Rainbow Tavern.
The town of Maupin (Oregon) has two nice motels (the Imperial River Co. Motel, and the Deschutes motel) and several other B&B type lodging options.
Breakfast options: Henry's restaurant is in Maupin by the bridge that crosses the Deschutes. The other bkfast place I like is Molly B's restaurant in "downtown" Tygh Valley. Both open at 7 a.m. Good breakfast and good folks.
Maupin is located on the Deschutes River, 40 miles south of The Dalles, Oregon, or 90 miles northwest of Bend. Maupin city park has 30 very nice rv hookup camping spots by the river. There are heated showers there.
Maupin is one of Oregon's flyfishing and rafting meccas. From November thru February it is a quiet little town of 500 where community life revolves around its two churches and its schools. The basketball teams and wheat farms and cattle ranches of southern Wasco County dominate town life and town talk during those months. But from March thru October, the flyfishing and river rafting seasons are the main activity. In May, the salmon fly hatch is legendary. There is a river road that provides 25 miles of access to flyfishing from the east bank of the river.
Deschutes Motel (nice, clean, fisherman friendly, affordable - I have stayed there several times)
The Imperial River Co. (nice lodging on the river, has a good bar and restaurant)
I will add more lodging info soon.
