We had a great spot at Big Pines. Loved the way the spaces were laid out, you felt like you had some space around you and your weren't looking in your neighbors window! The owners were great - even delivered our packages to our door when they arrived! Wifi was good and we enjoyed the cable TV. We were really happy that the North Gate opened so we could take the short route to Crater Lake and it was SO WORTH IT! Great spot to stay. We had a ridiculous amount of mosquitos swarming the area . .but you can hardly blame the park for that! Bathing in bug spray was a daily routine ;) - Melfisonthemove

Crescent is a town on hard times but was the closest we could get to Crater Lake. The sites are similar to a state park, plenty of room. Lots of pine trees as the name of the park implies. Rustic, but staff take you to your site and were walking around checking on things frequently. We'd stay there again. - davis0056

Friendly, efficient manager and owner. Well marked on roadway, wide area to get in off Hwy. 97 and then park to register. My site was a pull thru which curved off a main interior roadway. Plenty of room for my 55' overall length. Next time in area this will be my stop. - Ella18

This campground does not have 'resort' facilities. The RV sites include good quality 30 amp electric. A long hose mounted on trees, will reach all sites. Pump out at your site is available weekly at a cost of $20. There is also a charge for the RV dump for 'guests'. The access road from Hwy 58 is 'rough' and narrow is places. The reason we and so many others go there is for the fishing. If you tow a boat, they will launch and retrieve it for you at no cost and if available, you can rent dock space. We go every year and enjoy it. - Rimdel

We had an outstanding experience during a four day stay in mid-October. Sited among tall conifers on the shore of Lake Odell one has the sensation of having the Pacific Northwest to oneself. It was rainy, cool, and breezy which did nothing to dampen our spirits.
Given the time of year the resort was not crowded so we had the run of the place. One can hike the Pacific Crest Trail or any of the other numerous trails found nearby. There's fishing which is accessible by rented boat, off the docks, or shoreline. Licenses and gear available on site.
All staff members were dedicated to making sure we had everything available to enjoy our stay. One rainy day, there was chicken-dumpling soup free to anyone from a large pot on the counter. Free chocolate chip cookies at check-in.
Campsites are varied. Most have 30 amp service. Few are positioned to receive satellite TV. WiFi is available - nearer the office the better. Verizon cell service was good. Our MiFi hotspot worked well.
No sewer or water hookups at the sites but there is a dump station and a number of hose bibs scattered throughout the park from which ones water tank can be filled. A holding tank dump service is reportedly available once per week though we did not use it.
Some of the sites are not very level and/or have tree limbs in the way of larger RV's. We did not have trouble finding an excellent site.
The park has recently changed hands and the new owner, Highway West Vacations, is sprucing things up. There are some very cozy cabins, good laundry, and sparkling pay showers available.
We had a great time and will be back. - CoCoDnC

Been going to this park most of my life to go fishing. You only have power that's all you get now they have raised the rates high enough to price me out will not go back. Lot spacing is close. Sites are dirt with picnic table and fire ring. - Frankanthony

What a wonderful resort. All the RV spots are amazingly spacious and if you make your reservations well in advance, you may even luck out and get a Deschutes Channel waterfront site. The lake was fun, lots of hiking trails, all of the staff especially the owners are amazingly friendly and helpful. We want to give a special thanks to a wonderful waitress. She gave us great information about hiking trails. She deserves every tip she receives! Hubby broke a bolt off his battery and the owner gave him a new one so we didn't have to go clear into town. Well stocked little store too! The resort was clean and we can't wait to come back. This place is a must visit on your camping adventure list. Great for kids. Kayaks, boats, canoes and water board rentals. Thank you to all for making our stay the best. Keep up the great work!!!! - Carter Davis

I have been camping here for 20 years and love this park . They have a very good staff that is willing to help whenever needed . The facilities are old, but taken very good care of. There are new owners that took over a couple of years ago and they are as good if not better than the old ones. - Dan Highsmith

This is a standard USFS campground that is managed by Hoodoo. Located right on Crescent Lake many sites have wonderful views and direct access to the lake. There is a good boat launch at the campground, water and pit toilets. Hosts keep things clean, but don't do much else. This is a scenic and wonderful campground, Crescent Lake is a great fishing and water sports lake. Be aware that drunk, loud or rowdy campers go unchecked as there is little if any law enforcement or Forest Service rangers available to deal with the problem. We've experienced this problem over a 3 year period now. We were able to launch our boat with our 35' motorhome just fine but would be tough with anything much larger I think. - Y-Guy

A little-used campground in an oxbow of the Deschutes River. Sites are dirt, spacious, and almost level. The last 1.5 miles of road is dirt & rough with tree branches sticking out, but you will likely have the place to yourself. Town is only a few air miles away (further by road) so the cellular signal is very strong. The river is beautiful, especially in the morning, and there are fish. Very short drive to the Cascade Lakes area. I shall definitely stay here again. - Old Mountain Man

We loved this park. Very nice and accommodating owner and manager. Clean, quiet park and the location is in the middle of all the local attractions. Sites are very close, gravel and offers a picnic table. We would stay here again. - Hihohihooffwego

First this park has a website which contains a map and photos. The park is NOT like the on-line photos. The grass is all dead and the park is not maintained at all. Do not be fooled! Specific problems are:
No staff at park. When you arrive you must call number posted and eventually a "manager" will arrive. No staff on duty to address issues.
Spaces so narrow that they will not fit large double slide outs.
Very unfriendly staff and owner who refuses to resolve problems (read below for details.)
Unsecured credit card information! Your credit card number is written on post-it style note with your information and arrival date, paper-clipped and at desk for anyone to take or possibly see. (Office is locked as no one is there, but when you do enter with staff it is there.)
Park is mostly full-time "greatly discounted" monthly guests. This park is NOT geared to weekend travelers.
SHARED space outside your RV door. Yes that is correct. You must share your table space with your neighbor.
No room to walk dog or grass area for dogs to do their "business" in. Again see photo. If you want dead grass area, you must walk your dog directly next to someone else RV.
Park is in LOW INCOME trashy residential area. As in run down single wide mobile home and cars which do not run on other side of RV park fence.
Also rather weird is only one phone number is posted by the telephone... The Deschutes Sheriff's Department. (Not like in case of emergency, but like trouble is expected it seems... wow!)
I had to leave. My RV would not fit in the spot I had left. Park refused to refund. Feels like you are in the ghetto.
I strongly recommend holiday travelers to avoid this park. The State Park is just a few miles up the road. But if you want a "budget minded" property with no supervision, then this is your place. - Oregon_Adventure

Nice older park and quiet!! Everything is clean and works as it should. Owners are fantastic and really take good care of the place. About 2 miles west of Hwy 97 just north of La Pine, OR. The distance from the hwy really eliminates the noise. This is a small park and big rigs would be tight though OK in some spaces. Nothing I need worry about for now. Lots to see and do in the area and there is a fish cleaning station at the park. Sites are somewhat cozy but I've seen worse. WiFi worked fine for us, we checked email and did some browsing. Would definitely stay here again. - DRKM

What everyone else has stated is true -- we really liked this campground. The manager (owner?) was very nice and helpful. There was lots of space between sites and the lawn and trees were beautiful. It was quiet and peaceful. We were parked near the office and I had no problem with the Wi-Fi at all. If we are back in the area I know we will stay there again! We used our own bathroom so didn't use theirs, but looked inside and they were clean and roomy, albeit old. - PortiaN

There are two sections to the Riverview Trailer Park. The first section is a trailer park which is kept very well. The second section is the RV park. There are mostly long term residents at the campground. The grounds have plenty of grass and it is obvious that the owners take great pride in their establishment. The interior road and sites are gravel. The widths of the sites are a little narrow, but there should not be a problem getting into them. Some sites are more level then others. There is a picnic table at each site but no BBQ stand. All sites have FHU with 30/50 amp electricity. The bathroom and showers were a little dated but very clean. There are two washers and two dryers and are reasonable priced. Wi-Fi is available, but the signal was weak at our site (we did not use it). Verizon air card and cell phone worked well. Cable TV is also available. Your GPS will probably tell you to take Doe Lane from Burgess Road. Doe Lane is a dirt road. A better route would be to continue on Burgess Road to the traffic light. Turn right onto South Huntington road. The RV park will be on your left. We would come back here again if we were in the area. - adsaxs

We found this little park after checking into another park in town that we considered unacceptable for more than one night. We are happy that the first one was so bad as to force us to look elsewhere, because this one is a jewel. We are almost reluctant to praise it for fear that there will not be room when we return. Nothing fancy, just large, flat, shady sites with good hookups including free Wi-Fi and cable TV. Cash or checks only. - 2005-Fulltimers

We have camped at Crane Prairie in the upper section three times now. It is truly beautiful up there with generous site sizes. This time, we camped with 21 other Airstreamers at a rally. I worked with a staff member from the resort for several months on this project. She could not have been more helpful and responsive. We had the entire upper section of 20 spots and one site was only for a tent that we had rented (it was mighty cold!). They brought us up two tables and also a big gas heater to help us stay warm. The store has supplies that we needed and several campers canoed or kayaked on the lovely lake. There is a list of rules and if people respect them, they will get along very well here - nothing crazy about the rules! Many of our campers said they would come back again on their own, after the rally, they liked the place so much. Now that's a good recommendation! - twestover

We love this park! It's truly a campground with trees, rocks and wildlife rather than paved pads and grass. You get the real outdoors experience with the convenience of water, power and sewer hook-ups! But the listing for this park is wrong; it should be listed under the town of La Pine. And it's 24 miles west of La Pine in a beautiful but remote area so don't expect to run into town quickly if you forget something. Crane Prairie definitely caters to the fishing crowd and the lake is known for it's trophy "Cranebow" trout. This means the sites are very wide and well spaced so there is room for your RV and tow vehicle and even another vehicle and boat. One prior reviewer complained about the quality of the water but we didn't notice anything wrong with it so maybe this is a problem that has been fixed. Cell service is a bit spotty. My AT&T only worked by the boat ramp but our TracPhone worked fine at the campsite. There is only one plumbed restroom and a separate shower house/laundry in the park so plan to use the facilities in your RV. The shower requires LOTS of quarters and is really used by campers in the forest service campground next door. The store is minimally stocked with food and mostly sells fishing tackle. You can also rent boats there or arrange to keep your boat in their marina during your stay. They do have a fairly restrictive cancellation policy so make sure you are firm on your reservations at least two weeks ahead of time. We will definitely go back to Crane Prairie Resort. - SiskiyouSenior

This campground is more of a fishing resort. It is woodsy which I liked; however, the site we were in was narrow. My biggest complaint was the drinking water! It smelled and tasted very bad! We even filtered it three times! To bathe in it it, left you smelly. The laundry only had cold water and of course the water made the clothes smelly. The lake was very beautiful with the Three Sisters mountains in the back ground. - mivo49

Spaces are very small and you are intimate with your neighbors. The overnight spots are right next to the "dog park", so hope you don't mind loud barking and people yelling at their animals all night. Right on the freeway so very loud. Lady in the office is polite and was willing to tell me about local sites to see. Wifi was spotty and hookups were in someone elses footpath ie, they open the door into your sewer/water/cable hookups. - RoadWarrior9

This is a small RV park right on the highway with gravel sites that are very close together and don't have any shade. Very poorly laid out sites and there was a lot of dried sewage scattered in gravel around next site hookups which also is right where our front door opened requiring great care to avoid stepping in it. We would not recommend this park. We stayed one night because we were tired and didn't know that 20 minutes further down the road there was a much nicer park. - candyd

The sites were very close together. No amenities other than a dog area that is very close to the highway. Spaces were very tight and with parking allowed on the roads, difficult to get into assigned space. - djslawson

Stayed here for four nights as part of a 4th of July Camping trip with friends. The park is spacious and located about 4 miles from Hwy 97. Don't expect good cell service here. Our loop didn't have a playground, but had a large field in front of the shower/bathroom facility where our kids played for hours. Lots of great hiking an beautiful scenery. Our site was a 30 second walk to the river. My only gripe was that the bathrooms (men's & women's) in our loop didn't have soap dispensers. OK, that's pretty disgusting and needs to be fixed ASAP. That's actually a health hazard. That said, we'll probably return next year (but with own own bottles of liquid soap). - NotSoPro

Campground facilities and campsite were wonderful. Location fantastic for exploring nearby volcanic monuments and the city of Bend. Low rating due to concern for the large school group that arrived on Wednesday before Memorial Day and packed in more than the maximum number of campers in each of the INDIVIDUAL campsites. This was our second year camping here at the same time as the previous year. It sounded like having a day camp as a neighbor for several hours when each day, the adults held outdoor activities in the open grass field in the center of the Middle Loop campsites. There is a day use group site across the river but no group overnight area. This huge group of children should be placed away from campers who seek peace and quiet at a state campground. We will not be returning here a third year at the same time period. - rvYoungster16

Beautiful park. Quiet. Stayed for a week. It snowed on a couple of days! Didn't stick to the ground, but pure heaven for us! Lots to do in the general area, but our biggest struggle was that there was no cell service (Verizon). Since we didn't know the area, we wanted to search local attractions, but had to drive to the town of La Pine or Bend to get decent cell reception. Early in the week, I surprisingly got cell service at the campsite and used my phone as a hotspot for the computer. Unfortunately, I picked up a virus. My phone instantly slowed to a crawl, and my computer was a mess. I ended up purchasing a new cell phone in Bend. My advice: Enjoy the campground and don't try to use your cell service. Drive to La Pine (probably 15 to 20 minutes away). - Rylle Jones
