7 Parks near Crescent Lake, Oregon
Jul 2012 - $16.00
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

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

This is a gorgeous RV park on Odell Lake. The views and hiking trails are magnificent. They only have electric hook-ups, but water is located at convenient spots around the park. There is one toilet located just off of the office parking lot. No hot water at the toilet. The showers are a bit of a hike from the RV sites, but are clean. The cost is $1.50 in quarters for 3 minutes. No sinks or mirrors at the showers. The office and General Store is handy and well stocked. Firewood is available at the store. The office staff is very friendly and helpful. The roads and sites are gravel and have a picnic table with a fire pit. The sites are nestled amongst old, tall trees. There are trails all over the place, but we especially liked the short hike to nearby Trapper Creek, where we could see the Kokanee spawn. There is one dump site at the resort, but the cost is $5.00 to dump for RVers who stay at the resort. We only stayed there for two day, but we look forward to going there again. Only eight out of ten starts because it's a bit more like camping without full hook-ups. - BrainDoc

The way a campground should be! Plenty of room, easy in/out, FHU with great wifi and cable, open for dish if using, quiet. - Piperflyer 235

Best commercial campground this whole summer. Beautiful park among tall pines, spacious sites, all utilities worked well. Free wifi worked better than most parks. There is a laundromat although we did not use. Close enough to use as a base for Crater Lake, Newberry Volcanic National Monument and many other scenic natural attractions. Park is well kept with pleasant on-site owners. Reservations are a must. We had to wait nearly two weeks before we could get a spot for a week. - Katy29

Awesome Place!!! We loved the campground and the owners!! Easy to get in and out and large spaces. Lots of trees and woodsy feel. They recommended a little known falls nearby for a wonderful visit. HAD An awesome visit to Crater lake from this campground. We will definitely be back! - Dog on the road

We enjoyed 7 days at Twin Lakes Resort. They only have 22 sites on a single loop. The loop is not too wide. I think we were the biggest rig staying there (36' long). Getting into our slot #2 was a little tricky as there is not a lot of room to swing in. But the slot itself was long and spacious enough. #2 has 30 amp - not 50. Don't know if 50 amp is available on other spaces or not. - ExPatNW

The restrooms and showers were old fashioned but reasonably clean. A very woodsy setting with nice level trails and the fishing was marginal. Avoid sites near the dumpsters as the smell is a bit bad. Many families had camped there each year forever. A well stocked store and nice restaurant. - Auburn Fisherman

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

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

First, this park is not in Bend. It is about 37 miles SW of Bend. Do not trust your GPS. Use their directions. This is not an RV resort, but it is a very nice campground. Our site backed up to the lake where we saw bald eagles and osprey. You can see snow covered mountains too. We couldn't stay the entire month we booked unfortunately because their power was not reliable. We did have LTE Verizon coverage in our spot which really surprised us for the location. I don't think all spots were this fortunate. We work from our rig, so this is important to us along with power. The owner told us the power was installed 35 years ago and couldn't confirm its reliability, so we had to leave after two nights unfortunately. On check-in, we weren't charged the $1 fee, and the balance was refunded when we had to leave early. The store and surrounding grounds were in tip top shape. If you do stay at this campground, you would be wise to have a power monitoring system on your rig. We would consider returning. It's a great location. You are remote, so just be prepared for it. It reminded me of places we'd tent and popup camped in the past. It had that vibe. - 2Fliers

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

Great little park off the beaten path! Had a great pull through site for our 40 ft. Shaded spot with grass on one side. Park has some long term residents evidenced by the guy mowing his lawn! Still a great place for a short stay or even a longer one. Everything worked great. Sewer, Power, & electric. WiFi was a little weak but we weren't there to surf the web! People were extremely friendly and helpful. They had to upgrade us to a full hookup site and charged us the quoted Good Sam rate for the lesser site. Will definitely stay again! - Rydell Smith
