I guess we didn't see the same park. Frankly, we thought it was fairly dumpy and in need of significant maintenance. The weeds around our utility hookups were literally knee high. WiFi at the site was non-existent. There was no grass whatsoever, anywhere in any site, just around the pond. The road to our site was overgrown with weeds, making it tough to maneuver, especially a large coach. No shade of any kind. The same water that is so nice to lounge in is piped to the sites and is undrinkable due to the high sulfur content. We paid for two night and left after one. Yes, the hot pool was nice for an hour or two in the evening. We camped at Crystal Crane Hot Springs in a Motorhome.
Tips for other Campers:
There is nothing whatsoever for miles and miles around this park. Burns is a good sized town about 20 miles north. The only positive note was that the only OTA TV we got was 2 PBS stations.

I stayed here one night. The views are excellent here. The natural hot springs pond was great to try and relax in while looking at the beautiful view. We arrived in time for a relaxing dip before the other campers came. I loved it! I didn't have to unhook my jeep here. We had a nice pull thru site. I was charged $23.00 with my escapee discount for electric and water. I had a 30amp site. When I called to make a reservation, they charged my credit card right away. The RV park charged me $3.00 for my dog. The satellite reception was good and our site was level. I agree with the other reviews that if you like it quiet this is your place. We drove US Hwy 20 to get there and it was very windy. When I asked about the wifi, I was told it broke. We have a at&t hotspot but we didn't get any wifi reception at this rv park. We camped at Crystal Crane Hot Springs in a Motorhome.
Tips for other Campers:
Bring a noodle floaty we had fun floating in the natural pond with them.
We parked our motorhome here for two nights. We used this for a stopover between Bend, Or and Boise, ID. If you're looking for quiet and out of the way, this is it. Unfortunately, when we were there they had a problem with their pump so the hot springs pond was lukewarm. However, full hookups, with workable WiFi and a nice common area with TV, books and games. They also have available cabins, tent spaces and private hot tubs. We camped at Crystal Crane Hot Springs in a Motorhome.

The camping spaces were adequate and fairly level. No trees to worry about. The hot springs were AWESOME! Hosts were great. Can't wait to return! We camped at Crystal Crane Hot Springs in a Fifth Wheel.

This place is the best. We do this full time. In other words we live in our RV all the time. For the last 3 and a half years. We go to a lot of RV parks. This is not a resort, but it clean, nice laid out well and has a huge pond that's 101°F, all the time. It's a mineral spring. This place is quite, nice, fantastic, and it's my all-time favorite RV park. We camped at Crystal Crane Hot Springs in a Fifth Wheel.

We planned on staying for only one night but if you want sewer you must stay two nights. They only have 4 sites with electric, water, sewer, and 5 sites with water and electric. They also have sleeping cabins and tent area. The main draw for us was the hot springs pond. The temp was around 102 and very relaxing. It is small volcanic gravel bottom so some type of shoe is recommended. They also have private hot tubs available at an extra cost. The pond is used for day use and draws in quite a few people. There are only 2 restrooms and 2 showers which both had a waiting line but were clean. There is a very nice common room with kitchen facilities and television. No cable TV or WiFi available at our site. Its a shame the grounds are ruined by an area of junk. Old building, old campers, and heavy equipment make the area an eyesore. They do accept Passport America for 1 nite bringing the rate to $10. Not sure if we would return. We camped at Crystal Crane Hot Springs in a Travel Trailer.

My wife and I stayed here in March 2014 for eight days and were very pleased with the Park. We had a very nice pull through in the back by the huge dog area. Very friendly owners and well maintained park. I will definitely stay again. Rate was weekly. We camped at Crystal Crane Hot Springs in a Fifth Wheel.

This is a rustic campground with 7 water/electric sites and 3 full hook-up sites. The road into the campground, as well as the sites is on packed volcanic gravel. The water/electric sites are pull-thru and the full hook-up sites are back-ins. The water/electric sites have 30 amp electrical service only. The electrical voltage was good. I don’t know what amp service the full hook-up sites have. The pull-thru sites are fairly level. There is a huge grass area for tenters. The hot springs pond ($3.50 per person) is relatively small for the amount of people could be using it. The temperature of the pond is kept around 98 degrees and was refreshing. There is a bathroom with 2 private showers, a community room as well as a community kitchen. There weren’t enough showers for the amount of people that could be using the pond. Verizon air card and cell phone worked well. There is Wi-Fi available, but we did not use it. I would imagine during the busy season, this place could be a zoo. We would come back here again if we were in the area. We camped at Crystal Crane Hot Springs in a Fifth Wheel.

Lovely hot springs in a desolate location. Facilities were rustic but very good and staff were very friendly and helpful. Very economical place to RV but wish there were more RV sites as we had to camp in the dry camp area as the serviced sites were full. However the hot spring is wonderful.

Great price-nice hot springs pool. Pleasant managers. The draw for us was hot springs, unhappily for us it was very windy so the pool was only 95 degrees. Still had a nice time using the tv and WiFi in rec room. Also the cooking shack for guest. Nice touch for only $18. We will be back. Would have given a 10/10 but the cost for private rooms were too high and the pool area needs indoor/ outdoor carpet or cement as you get out. Tracked too much dust/ gravel into RV We camped at Crystal Crane Hot Springs in a Motorhome.

This is a hot springs and the RV Park is there to accommodate the hot springs. They accept the PA discount for one night which is all we stayed. The Park itself is all gravel which is dusty and there is no sewer hookups for one night stays. It doesn't matter, even there is room available, you cannot buy sewer hookups for one night period. Overall we enjoyed the Park and it's quietness and I would stay here again. You can't stay anywhere for nine dollars - a very good deal. We camped at Crystal Crane Hot Springs in a Motorhome.

This park is only 3 miles from Crane, but has a Burns, OR address. There are several small cabins and pull-thru RV sites with full hook ups in gravel parking lot. Friendly staff and owners. Small store. Rate is Passport America and does not include fee to soak in hot springs-fed pond. Many locals appeared this Saturday night to partake of the springs, but when the sun went down they all disappeared. Good birding. I would stay here again. There are few options for an RVer between Bend and Boise. We camped at Crystal Crane Hot Springs in a Motorhome.
We spent one night here under Passport America. It is a small park but we did enjoy ourselves. They have a natural fed hot springs pool that guests can utilize free of charge. We found the hot 'pool' very relaxing. The staff was very nice and in the morning when we left, the camp host came by to thank us for staying. We would definitely stay here again.

The only reason we stayed here was to experience a hot spring and indeed it was a wonderful experience. I really don't think the owners take the RV side of this park seriously. The pull through sites are just marked off areas in an incredibly dusty dirty parking area. The showers were just gross. We paid for two nights but left one day early because i was so disappointed with the environment. We would never return. Cannot recommend this park at all.

We stayed one night on our 2 month trip here. The staff was amazingly friendly, giving us a tour of the facilities. The campground is basically a gravel parking area for motor homes and trailers, and a grassy area for tents. They also have 5 cabins for rent. There is a nice common area with books and big tv. A kitchen is available for use as well. The main draw is the hot springs. There is a pond that is about maybe 1/5 acre, fed by hot springs that made the average water temperature on the day we were here 100 degrees. Wade over to a different section and the water would be warmer or cooler, depending on proximity to the water inlet... different and fun! We camped at Crystal Crane Hot Springs in a Motorhome.
