Rating reflects my experience with Xanterra who handles reservations at Mazama campground. Terrible service and lots of misinformation from various reservation agents. They do have a very limited number of electrical sites (something like 10 sites). But they are on a first come walk in basis. The loop they are on is very narrow and in my opinion looks more like tent sites or at most small pop up trailer sites. We stayed in D loop where the sites were larger and the pull throughs were longer. The bathrooms were clean but please note that the showers are located in F loop or at the camp store. The showers in F loop were free but most of the time the water was cold. Showers (4) in the camp store were hot and had good water pressure. They cost .75 for 4 minutes. There is only one washer and a couple of dryers in the laundry room so do not plan on doing laundry at Mazama. Very inadequate. There were lots of trees in this campground and each site has a picnic table, bear locker and a fire pit. The sites on the end of each loop looked like they had the most space. The campground is conveniently located inside Crater Lake. We stayed here for 4 days and 3 nights which was sufficient to see everything in the park. All in all this was an okay campground. We stayed here because it is located inside the National Park.

Best campground we have ever stayed in and were very sad to leave! The manager is so nice and welcoming! We really appreciate her hospitality! Such a refreshing change from dealing with impersonal online websites that we normally have to make reservations through. Joe's Creek Waterfall RV is immaculate. The grounds are beautiful, the bathroom and showers are large and clean and the camp store is very well stocked. The campground is just off of the 5 fwy and it is conveniently located to white water rafting on the Rogue River, to Oregon Caves National Monument and to many wineries in the Applegate Valley. Our group consisted of 8 adults and 8 kids ages 7-11. We had 3 trailers and 1 tent and stayed in sites 4,5 & 6. Nice pull through sites with full hook ups. The waterfall and swimming hole were a big hit with all of us and made us wish we could have stayed a few more days to enjoy it more. We did not experience any freeway noise at our sites. One morning we work up to see a group of wild turkeys walking past our site! So cool!! Loved this campground and would stay here again in a heartbeat!
