5 Parks near Diamond Lake, Oregon
Aug 2011 - $7.00
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

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

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

This is the closest private RV park to Crater Lake (about 3 miles away). There are a number of parks in the national forest, but none have any hookups. This park was rustic with a state park feel. The work campers were very friendly, but we didn't see any maintenance like lawn mowing going on while we were there for four nights and the park could have used a little sprucing up. I also don't know why we were put in a narrow pull through site near the office when the park was at least one third empty and there were many better sites. You can see Diamond Lake through the trees. - RVerMJ

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

After making reservation on-line, come to find out, the reservation was for a specific type of site, not an actual site. Upon arrival, you're given a color code and you must drive or walk around the campground loops looking for a site. So, arrive shortly after lunch if you want to get a decent selection. Like most state and national campgrounds, sites are crammed together so badly, you can here your neighbors snore. Campers coming and going all hours, car doors slamming the same without any consideration for others. And, I don't want to forget about the dogs barking. That was pleasurable too. Did not see the ranger drive through the campground once in our two night visit. - Rick Frazier

Had a 25 foot travel trailer. Obtained reservations online and had to check in at campground. Were given color yellow and told to take any yellow site that was not occupied. Very strange. Had dirt & asphalt pull through site. Needed 1 inch board to level side to side. Picnic table, fire pit and bear locker was provided. Lots of space between sites. Neither AT&T or Verizon got service. Campground is close to rim drive and Crater Lake Village. Loops A-G are big rig accessible if you drive carefully. Yellow sites are for "smaller RV's", Red sites are for larger RV's. There is only water and electricity in handicapped sites. - travelcouple

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
