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

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

Great location near Diamond Lake and North entrance to Crater Lake. Park is well managed with escort to site. Our site was a not very level and small for parking tow vehicle. Site was also close as we could hear neighbors easily. However, some sites were larger and more spread out. Laundry facility was top notch. No late check-ins or park wifi. service. We camped in a motorhome. - Dewster

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

Several sites in the campground, many of them "pull-through" and spacious in square area, but like many national parks, the sites were installed before the advent of bigger rv's. Spaces, for the most part, appeared to be level. Site #28 is the ONLY site with 50amp electric, but overlooked by most because getting into the site (a pull-through, no less) is difficult. The driver of our rig has had a lot of "big-rig" experience in getting into, or out of, tight spaces. The problem could be solved with the removal of a couple trees, one which is dead, but dealing with the National Forest Service puts a different look on that sound idea! Seeing the lake is worth it! - SeenAll50

This is a nice CG that is in excellent proximity to the Rim! It was a 10 min or so drive from CG to Rim. We love to stay at the park CG when visiting the NP's so we can more easily take advantage of Ranger programs and the like. We stayed here 4 nights. The bathrooms are fine, but not great. That was to be expected. We were disappointed in the showers. We happened to get there after they cleaned, so they were all nice and clean, but the timers (I think it was 75 cents per 4 min) were not at all accurate. Gas is also available at a (relatively) reasonable price. Finding our campsite was interesting in that you're not assigned a site per se, but you're assigned a type (color) and you need to drive around and find an open site with your color stripe. Worked out for us as we stayed in an open, paved pullthrough site. We would definitely stay here again. - jmholton

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
