Nice campground, reservable, level. Nice mix of sun and shade. Fire pit, grill area, picnic table. Close to the village with laundry, groceries and gas. No hot showers, large campground, mosquitoes. Great place to stay while visiting Crater Lake. - rosie and ruby

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 stayed 6 nights, our site was small but we were able to get satellite TV, which is not easy due to the tall trees. Most of the sites are large with plenty of space. Friendly campers and our dogs were in love with all the squirrels and chipmunks. The laundry room was clean. Make sure you bring plenty of Off, the mosquitoes were terrible. The lake is across the street and we had fun fishing from shore. I would have rated this campground higher, but our check-in experience with one of the attendants was unpleasant and disappointing after a 7 hour drive. - Cindy8720

If you want to get away from it all - this is the place. No WiFi, no cable, and very little cell service. Sometimes, you can make and receive calls. Having said that, this place is like a NFS campground. It has that feel ...with full hookups. They really help guide you into your site - very helpful. The campground has that great smell of pines. Be prepared for mosquitoes - many of them. If you want to fish Diamond Lake, your best bet is to rent a boat. And, don't bother trying to fish Lemolo lake. Ugly and full of algae I believe. The big attraction is Crater Lake NP. Don't miss it. There is one gas station near the Diamond Lake resort, and one at Crater Lake...both very pricey. Be prepared. - marvls

We wanted to visit Crater lake and this RV resort fit the bill for being close by. For traveling reference, yes, there are challenges with computer directions....as long as you remember that this resort is on the southeast corner of Diamond Lake. Google maps directs you to the resort which is 3 miles north. The park is surrounded by trees and feels like one is communing with nature. There are a fair amount of mosquitoes during the "peak" time in morning and evening. AT&T reception is nonexistent and Verizon is spotty and overwhelmed. Water quality at this place is great because it comes from a natural spring and untreated. We filled up tank for boondocking before we left. - Carried Away

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

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
