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
This is a national park campground; there are no hookups. Large sites, some with a view of the lake. There are pull-in, back-in and pull-through sites here. I would suggest going left as you pass the office because the roads to the right are pretty tight for a motorhome. This was the off season, so there no one to check us in, but the instructions are clear. Would stay here again if in the area. - frmOregon
Rate reflects Senior Discount +$3 extra fee for shoreline site. Beautiful setting. This is an old USFS campground and has many low hanging branches that touched the antennas even on the main road. These branches could have easily been removed, but the park personnel seem more anxious to drive around in their shiny trucks, than clean restrooms, empty fire rings, or check for who and who had not paid. We saw several people fail to pay. Thankfully, we scouted the place out before picking a site and with some negotiating and swerving around branches and other obstacles, we were able to get our 36' motorhome situated in a very stunning spot. Most of the sites are not level, they are narrow, and don't have much privacy. We did use the shower in the GH loop, and it was not clean, but lots of hot water. - simonsrf
Price paid reflects use of Senior Pass. A primitive, very large (238 sites), no hookups (water is available but the faucets have no threads) USFS campground on the shore of Diamond Lake. Be careful when making a reservation through Recreation.gov for this park if you have a big rig. Many of the sites are small, most are ridiculously sloped front to back, un-level side to side and hard to get into. With that said, we had no problems getting our 40 foot, no slide motorhome into a double site in the "H" loop, we also had no problems on the roads leading to our site. ALL sites have a "reserved" sign stapled to the site number post, even the site we were assigned for the night--strange! Sites are $21 for a double, $16 for a single. The park is dirty, trash in many of the sites, trash on the roads, and our fire pit had not been cleaned in what looked like forever. The newer bath/shower house near our "H" loop site was dirty, hair in the sinks, no soap to wash your hands--no dispensers, nothing. No towels to dry your hands and the air dryer did not work. Hundreds of trees have been cut in this park and just left laying, giving the park a very unkempt look. Could those trees not have been cut into firewood and the firewood sold to make money?? When we pulled into the entrance the female ranger on duty in the new gate house stuck her head out the window and said, "That thing will never fit in here, try Broken Arrow campground." As we have friends with a 40 foot, 4 slide rig who stayed in this park in September, 2012, we knew this wasn't true and persevered. The shower houses and the dump station have signs which read, "donations accepted, please help us keep this service." I take exception to this when the fees are so high for a site with no hookups. - mjclark
Horrible!!! Stayed Memorial Day weekend 2014. Harassed by male manager from the time arrived. Kicked out next morning after simple misunderstanding about parking of extra vehicle that fit in site and that was paid for.
We are good people that obey rules. These folks are unreasonable and ruining a good number of travelers trips. Check out other review sites. Mngr kicked out a contractor that would have been there for an extended period because he did not like the way he got out to measure for his slides before backing in.
lovely park with showers and wifi. We were in the furthest loop from the main building and the wifi was not consistent, but workable if you kept the device to the front of the trailer.
Water, electric & sewer access located nicely for trailer placement. The site was level. Quiet park. - JL3CD
Dirt roads and pads, some very unlevel. One shower and bathroom for this many sites and some very tight spots made me give this a 7. Pretty area with lots of trees. Due to the drought, it was very dry and dusty when we were there. It is close to Crater Lake park, 15 miles from the campground to the lake, 3 miles to the north entrance. Wifi did not work for us that the park provided but got some signal with Verizon so my phone hot spot did work at times. - b7xv
This park is in a beautiful setting. It is near the Crater Lake National Park. The spaces are gravel with concrete pads for tables, etc. Some of the pads are at odd angles. We could not get on the wifi. When ask about wifi the staff including a woman who claimed to be the manager, only made excuses. Since we depend heavily on internet service, we decided to leave a night early. The manager refused to refund that night's rent. We will not go back to this park. - Frank Barker
