13 RV Parks near Cresent, Oregon

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

Pulled in about 3 PM at the office. After paying and registering, we were led to our pull in site #21. Very long, didnt have disconnect. Very nice grassy area beside MH on both sides. Gravel roads well maintained. Tall Pine Trees. Lots of flowers. This is a gem just south of Bend along HWY 97. Would definitely return. - LilGTO71

We had planned on a much longer stay and made reservations. However the smoke from close by wild fires made us change our mind. When we checked in we told them we were going to shorten our stay because of smoke. Not a problem. They were most accommodating. The park is laid out very well and the sites are wide enough for comfort. Wifi is terrific. We have T-Mobile and it was rather iffy. For each new arrival they were escorted to their site and made sure of hook ups. They plan on expansion and it will add to a very nice place. - bdixon2297526

We were here a couple years ago - see my 8/15 review for a more detailed description of the park. There seem to be more pull-through sites than back ins. Once again, we had a FHU, pull-through site with cable TV. With all the big pines, I don't know if there is a satellite friendly site in the park. The Wi-Fi was good enough for our minimal (e-mail and web surfing) needs. The laundry has new machines that are a bit expensive. I still don't see any recycling or anything recreational other than horseshoes. This is a nice, well run, and maintained park with good facilities for a great price. For me, it lacks the amenities (a pool and satellite friendly sites, for example) to encourage a longer stay. - Jerry S

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

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

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

While Crane Prairie Resort is off the beaten track, your driving is rewarded by a forested RV park next to a beautiful lake. The park office/store was in a cool log house, and the store was well stocked with many items (including fishing accouterments). The sites were well spaced and surrounded by trees, rocks and lots of chipmunks. Hook-ups were good, and most sites have a fire pit, which we enjoyed using. (There is a moderate fire danger there, but as long as the fire is in the pit, you're fine.) They provide firewood at the store, and I picked up lots of small branches around our site for kindling. The breeze by the lake is stiff but pleasant. By the time it gets to our site, it's much more subdued but still very nice. There is no WiFi but we could just barely get a 4G signal from Verizon. The laundry was good sized and clean, the bathrooms varied. Some were composting toilets, and some had running water. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Crane Prairie and would jump at the chance of going back! - RobtL

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

Extremely close together. Very noisy! Park sits right on Hwy 97. We had Site 1 so we were facing the highway. No room to park our car (and we have a 32 ft Class C!) Fortunately there was room at the front of their parking lot for extra vehicles. Friendly staff and wifi worked. Cable TV. Just very crowded sites. I would not stay here again. Sadly, there wasn't much available in the area when we visited. We were here to visit family. - KMLG

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
