Park staff were very friendly and helpful, but that could not make up for the lack of cable (which their website says they have), the WIFI that was next to useless, and the sites that are very close together. This is not a satellite friendly park and we would not stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.

First time staying here and it was a good experience. Sites are nice as there are plenty of trees of varying heights around and between sites. However, maneuvering around the park is easy as the roads and sites are asphalt. One of just a few parks we have been to which turn out to look like their website - which is always great. The hosts are very nice, friendly, and the office has brochures and maps to make the stay and touring the area easy. No Verizon cell service available within the Park except on the porch of the office. However, the Park has free WiFi available. All in all a most enjoyable stay. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.

Owned and managed by friendly and personable staff that assisted us immediately upon check-in and helped guide us through setup. (The sites are huge!) We were provided maps of the nearby waterfalls, lakes, and trails as part of our welcome packet. They host Saturday and Sunday morning kaffeeklatsches and Saturday night campfires with hotdogs and s'mores at the big fire circle along with live entertainment. By the end of our stay we felt like part of the family. The big bonus is that they don't tolerate rude or unruly guests, so the atmosphere is relaxed, safe, and family-friendly. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.

The cost reflects a 50% Federal Senior Pass discount (available to any U.S. citizen over 62 years of age for $10 for a lifetime pass). The campground is actually located close to Union Creek, Oregon, an unincorporated area. This is one of several Forest Service campgrounds along highway 62 between Medford, OR and Crater Lake National Park. Other than this campground, the other campground that is suitable for RV’s is Natural Bridges CG. (See review elsewhere). The campground is along the Rogue River and about half of the campsites are right next to the River with the views and the sound of the River. The negative is that, since the campground is right next to the highway, there are also the sounds of the highway, including the logging trucks. However, the highway calms down considerably at night, so we did not find that to be a big problem. The sites right along the road are much less desirable. The campground is nice and dark, which we like, except for overly-bright lights on the restrooms. The sites are paved and several of the sites are long enough for a big RV and most are fairly level. With the exception of some “buddy” sites, the sites are nice and far apart, often with no views of your neighbor. There are no hookups and no dump station. However, there is water available with nu-threaded taps, so you have to use a “cheater” to put on the faucets to fill your tank. There are also gray water dump sites throughout the campground. If you need a full dump station, it is available about 11 miles south in at the Crater Lake (Prospect) RV park for a fee. There are restrooms with flush toilets, but no showers and no hot water. Even though the sign at registration implies otherwise, generators (contained in the RV or on pavement) can be used between the hours of 7 am to 10 pm. The campground is run by a concessionaire, Rogue Recreation. The campground host sells wood for $6 per bundle. The host was very helpful and friendly. This is a good campground for visiting Crater Lake National Park, about 20 miles further along Highway 62. It is a lot less expensive than the campground within the park. There are trails and other natural features of interest within the area. Becky’s restaurant, famous for their pies is less than a mile from the campground. This is a first-come, first-served campground. No reservations are accepted and it does fill during the prime summer months. We camped here in a Motorhome.

The cost reflects a 50% Federal Senior Pass discount (available to any U.S. citizen over 62 years of age for $10 for a lifetime pass). This campground is actually located close to Union Creek, an unincorporated area 11 miles north of Prospect. This is one of several Forest Service campgrounds along highway 62 between Medford, OR and Crater Lake National Park. Other than this campground, the other campground that is suitable for RV’s is Farewell Bend CG. (See review elsewhere). The campground is along the Rogue River and almost all of the campsites are right next to the River with the views and the sound of the River. The campground is far enough away from highway 62 that noise is not an issue. The campground is nice and dark at night, which we like. Some of the sites are long enough for a big RV and most are fairly level. It is a bit tight getting an RV into the campground, but can be done with care. There are no hookups, no dump station and no water available. If you need a full dump station, it is available about 11 miles south in at the Crater Lake (Prospect) RV park for a fee. There are only pit toilets. This is a good campground for visiting Crater Lake National Park, about 20 miles further along Highway 62. It is a lot less expensive than the campground within the park. There are trails and other natural features of interest within the area. Becky’s restaurant, famous for their pies is less than a mile from the campground.
