8 RV 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

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

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

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

We stayed twice: Sept & Oct, same site each stay. Like: how sites are laid out for privacy; tidiness of grounds; recycling; bathrm/shower rooms very clean & private, plus having comfy place to wait if shower is on use. Some hi-way noise. Not much to do nearby; most points of interest require driving 30-60 mins. This park can accommodate small or large rigs; park owner assigns sites accordingly. - Taco stand

Small, but well laid out park. Big sites with grass lawns. Very nice and attentive staff. Cute, grassy, doggie area. WiFi is awesome, very fast. Cable TV also very good. Would stay here again. - Blueberry10

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

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

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 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

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

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
