4 Parks near Crater Lake National Park, Oregon
Sep 2016 - $31.00
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

As the last reviewer said we booked a reservation thinking we had a site with electric. Come to find out there are only about 10 sites that do have electric and only a handful can be used by big rigs in the whole park. We took the chance that we could dry camp anyway but the weather turned cold at night and our furnance really started to wear down the batteries. We went totally dry since we needed the power to get the slides in and jacks up. With the help of the truck batteriers we were just able to get closed up, barely.
Other than that the site was nice. The curved drive is kind of hard to get the camper center but since there are no hookups you just have to avoid the trees. We were close to a water spigot that we used for cleaning water.
The only real benifit we found was being close to the visitor center but we could of had that at another park just outside with full hookups and basically the same price. For what you pay in the park you should be getting some hookups.
Would not stay again. - John Borajkiewicz

Great National park, plenty of firewood, excellent hiking. The crawdads in the lake are good eating and easy to catch. - World travelers from Florida

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

Sadly we only had one night as a stop over on our way to Nevada, but there's no doubt we'll be back! We loved the trees and ample spaces. They gave us a pull-through w/full hookups so we didn't have to un-hitch for the one night.
We came in via hwy 58 and 97 and were impressed with the fantastic road conditions to get there; same road as going to Crater Lake.
The park is great to walk dogs: lots of shady paths.
One caveat: in September there are bezillions of micro-flies at night! We didn't know and succumbed to an invasion of those pesky suckers, and cleaning up dead ones the next day. So my last recommendation would be to NOT display outside lighting, and to turn off ALL lights in the rig before opening your door! One lady recommended waving a big towel every time she opened her door: oh my.
This park closes end September. It gets cold at night that month, and they usually get their first snowfall beginning October. Bring warm clothes if stargazing. - Chuck Brown

We stopped here for one night because we could not get into the National Park campsite until the next day and had a boat reservation early the next day.
A nice campground and the managers were great. Directed us to our site and helped us back in. When we told him we were not going to unhook he suggested that he take us to another site that would work better for us. Helped us again.
The site was level enough that we did not have to worry about adjusting the legs. Plenty of space and easy to get around.
They even offered their overflow area to park the camper the next day if we wanted to drive the park without the camper.
Would stay here if in the area again. - John Borajkiewicz

Nice Park. Staff is friendly and guide you into your space. There are 2 problems
One, the park is far away from everything, make sure you stock up. The only "store" is at the resort 3 mi down the road. Milk is $8 a gallon and butter is $6 a pound. There is a gas station nearby but they charge $1 more per gallon then anywhere else. Two, mosquitoes. We were told that we were at the "end" of the season. I would hate to see what it is like during the height of the season.
If you don't need full hookups check-out the public campground. The sites are right on the lake. - newbies2016

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
