Campground is very well laid out but because of a water dispute they will not have showers or the bathrooms working this summer. We were there in late June and most sites were still snowed in. Stayed only two night because of the water shortage. - RedArrow

This was a unique experience because the campground opened up for the first day of the season and we were the first checking in. Only two loops of the six were open. We drove in to see if we would fit and then checked in at the Mazama Village Store. The snow was over the RV but the pull through sites (some that will hold a 45 ft RV) are long. The snowplows were still plowing away trying to get sites ready. Only A & B loops were ready and the office said they were only allowing self-contained units in but then they put some portable units in the two loops, so tenters were allowed. Bathhouses won't be opened for a while. The campground is located in the Mazama Village area with cabins, a gas station, store and a restaurant nearby. You need to drive to the Visitor Center (good movie about the lake there) and to Rim Village around some sharp curves. At this time the northern entrance was still closed so everyone had to enter through the south. You could drive your RV up to Discovery Point and then walk or bike another four miles to where the snow plows were working hard to clear the road. I believe they were only about another two miles of getting the West Rim Drive cleared to the northern entrance. The most snow I have ever seen in my life over the height of the RV. This is a great place to stop but parking for RV's is hard to find especially with the depth of the snow on the ground. We really enjoyed seeing the lake at this time of year and camping with snow all around us. Loved being able to ride our ebikes on the rim road with no cars. Reservations start later in the season. - gsnakehill

We were surprised to find such a nice State like park at a hot spot like Crater Lake. Rate is for a dry site. We found the sites to be well spaced, thus offering good privacy. Some are sunny but most are at least partially shaded. Some are paved, ours was dirt but level. Water taps everywhere. Very quiet location. Perfect spot to go on the circle drive around magnificent Crater Lake. We will stay here again on our next visit. - TheSchweitzers

USFS camp. Check Rec.gov for description of site to make sure you will fit. Some sites are a challenge and will require leveling. Roads are narrow with nasty speedbumps. Sites ae nice and spacious and in most cases screened by vegetation. Restrooms needed more detailed attention. - gumper

Made a two night reservation in advance. Reservation did not mean anything, arrived site not vacated. Park office attendant told us to go speak with the people still at the site. We had to wait an additional 2 hours for access. After setting up camp finally, right before dusk we had another man arrive at our site only to tell us the office just sold him our site. We were very tired from travel to get there that day and decided to let the other man just camp at our site. The people running the office could not care less about what is or is not going on. The views inside this campground are breath taking. Just beware of what could happen. - Seltner

This is a very large campground with asphalt access roads and sites, some of them are "double" which means you pay more, but most of them are deep enough to back up anything you are driving. Some pull through sites near the entrance. There are about 10 loops, I would avoid J loop if you are driving a motor home or pulling a trailer as the sites are more suited for tents. We basically had this campground to ourselves, it is not on the water but there is a ramp close by. This campground is about 4 miles south of Diamond Lake Campground ( both USFS) and is way better for RVs. There is a paved bike/hiking path that goes to the Resort area. - 10-10

Very nice park with friendly and helpful staff. Our site was level with a patio just out of front door. Each site had a table and fire ring. We had a pull through site that was plenty long for our 40 foot RV and toad. All hook ups were working as expected and in a good spot for hooking up. No cable but the site we had got Direct TV from dish. Laundry room was very good and wash was only $1.25 and dryers were $1.75 for 1 hour.
We stayed here to visit Crater Lake and was close to North Entrance with friends. Would stay again and would recommend to any one that needs a location close to Crater Lake. - roaming around

We stayed here because of the proximity to the north entrance of Crater Lake National Park. Closest location to trail to boat tour. Check in was easy, and we had an escort to our site. Don't follow your GPS to get here--regardless if you are using street address or coordinates, it will try to lead you down NFS narrow dirt roads. Our escort said "the Europeans do fine, they follow the road signs--the Americans follow their GPS and get lost." Sites are gravel and level. We were given a pull through with good satellite reception (be sure to ask if that's important because there is quite a bit of tree cover in the park). No cable TV and no over-the-air channels. No wifi. Verizon cell service was spotty at times; we could text and make calls but were unable to connect to hotspot. Hubby put his IPhone on Black and White which did help data reception. Water and sewer hookups vary in location from site to site. We needed 30' of water hose to connect and used the neighbor's sewer hook up after they left because it was closer than our own. Water hookup was at ground level, and it was difficult to attach our water filter. Small picnic table with benches and small patio area. Bathrooms and showers were in a cement block building and interior appeared to be recently remodeled--a nice surprise. There was a wall space heater on a timer for the shower area which was very welcome on a chilly morning. Spacious dressing area for showers. Very clean bathrooms. Several people talked of being treated rudely. Our check-in and escort to our site were both very personable and friendly. However, we met Mr. Rude when we were leaving. We had stopped in the driveway to hook up our towed vehicle, did so in short order and were in the coach washing our hands when grumpy rode up in his golf cart and asked it we were leaving soon. There was no one waiting to get past us. Best place with hookups to stay in the area. - RagTopDay

Great place, easy in easy out, great manager and hosts. Great spot, quiet, close to Crater Lake NP. No wifi but Verizon worked ok. Lots of space to walk the dogs. Across the street is a Pizza place and boat launch to Diamond Lake. - ChiefUSN

My site was not level and all sites are all dirt and dust. Sites are quite close together. The main "resort" is across the road. Nice little restaurant with somewhat overpriced food and a nice view of the lovely lake.
Showers cost $0.50/minute, with a minimum of 4 minutes. They are constructed in such a way that you have no privacy when you get undressed and there are no hooks or benches in the shower stall. Weird.
My frozen, pre-formed hamburger and fries at the resort restaurant cost $11.00.
As far as I could tell, there was no one on site to monitor noise and the dogs (lots of very large dogs in the campground) that were roaming off leash. - mitch5252
