4 Parks near Crater Lake National Park, Oregon
Jun 2016 - $31.00
This CG is a great location for taking in Crater Lake...just 6 miles from Rim Village. The sites and interior roads are very tight with a lot of tree damage from a tough winter. Very nice spacing between sites. All sites are heavily wooded, and not all sites have electricity. There are water spigots through the loops and at the dump station.
We wedged into site F10 with our 32' fifth wheel and had to use a come-a-long and strap to move bent trees out of the way. After exploring the rest of the CG later we should have parked in loop C. All sites are paved in C and a bit more big rig friendly.
There is little to no cell/wifi in the CG. In F10/9 area we had just enough cell to send simple texts with no photos or emoji's.
Restrooms were typical CG with dirty floors from a lot of foot traffic. Showers are individual locked rooms with luke warm water in a cold room.
The mosquitos were relentless and plentiful especially on hiking trails, CG...everywhere!
Overall it is a delightful CG and close to the Rim. We stayed two nights and that was enough to explore Crater Lake. - JeffDeb

Most of the sites in this campground are pull-throughs and most are wide enough to put slides out. Be careful, though, as they aren't necessarily easy to get in/out of if you have a larger rig. One loop in the campground is off-limits to large rigs because it is pretty tight in a couple of spaces. There is a picnic table, fire ring and food storage box at each site. We had no cell phone (AT&T) or WiFi (Verizon) in the park. We did have radio and Dish TV. Attendants at the check in booth are very friendly and helpful. Campground store has a pretty good selection of items, especially since it's the end of the season. - Bobbi1948

Convenient to crater lake, although it is a bit of a drive just to get to rim village. Campsites well spaced out, they have an odd system of finding your own site but seems to work. Reservations were not available until about 2 weeks before our July visit. Nps website says some sites are first come but upon calling the campground they said all are Reserved and they book up months in advance. This was so not correct! Agree with precious reviewers who say the park staff (xanterra ) don't have thir act together. Once here it was easy to check in, they tell you which color campsite to look for, and find your spot. We ended up with a site which was perfect for us. Would have rated higher if not for the misinformation of pxanterrparl staff. Restrooms uncared for. Feels like this park is the stepchild of the nps system. - MeetTheGriswolds

Great park with a beautiful lake nearby with fishing, boat rentals. Nice level site, lots of trees. DirecTV worked great, Verizon cell service minimal never could connect to WiFi. Had problem with power surges first day but once owner was aware he called in an Electrition and problem taken care of. Very close to Crater Lake. Beautiful area. - Rosie the dog

This is a very nice campground. It is convenient to Crater Lake and Diamond Lake. The sites are level and well kept. Some sites have concrete patios. The ladies who checked us in were friendly and informative.
If you are going to stay here (or anywhere else nearby) you must know cell service is, at best sketchy and non-existent. We had to travel a bit east on highway 138 to get a signal (AT&T).
This campground has WiFi, but don't count on the Tengo internet service to work. It didn't work for us at any time of day. - TRDAWG

A great place to stay and visit Crater Lake. We were here to ride the fun 11 mile bike trail around Diamond Lake and bird the area. It is a treasure trove for birders. We counted 29 different species within the park. Included in that were at least 4 woodpeckers, Oregon Juncos, warblers and many more. It has an incredible laundry for a park this size and delivers wood to your site. - rickimcm

It was nice to have full hook-ups but our site was so close to the next unit, we didn't dare have a campfire for fear of setting their RV on fire. Beautiful wildflowers blooming throughout the park. We used this as a base for seeing Crater Lake, which was amazing. We also enjoyed seeing waterfalls in the Umpqua National Forest. Beautiful country. - Breeze On

Great park near beautiful Diamond Lake which offers fishing, boat and bike rentals. Nice level site, lots of trees. DirecTV worked great, Verizon cell service minimal, never could connect to wifi. Had a problem with power surges first day but once owner was aware he called an Electrition and problem was taken care of. Very close to north entrance of Crater Lake. - Rosie the dog

I can see how it would seem cramped during high season, but in early Oct it was great. Convenient to Crater Lake. Campground was closing in just a few days. Set in scattered Ponderosa pine setting. Would go back. - mroswell
