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. We camped at Diamond Lake Campground in a Motorhome.

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. We camped at Diamond Lake Campground in a Motorhome.

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. We camped at Diamond Lake Campground in a Motorhome.

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. We camped at Diamond Lake Campground in a Motorhome.

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. We camped at Diamond Lake Campground in a Motorhome.

Primitive forest service campground. Be careful about RV length when booking, because not all sites are as described. We had a campsite on the water and it was the best view we have ever had. We camped at Diamond Lake Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

We LOVE Diamond Lake. We have been going here for 40+ years. There are 3 campgrounds around the lake. Diamond Lake Campground is on the east side of the lake and thus gets a lot of wind. It is a lovely ,well established park, but does NOT have any hook-ups. There are only a handful of pull-through spots; the rest are all back-in, many of which have a bit of a steep ramp to negotiate. In our experiences, June and July have relentless mosquitoes. They have ruined some of our trips. So now we go as early in the year as possible, when the campgrounds open in May or late in September and into October. We camped at Diamond Lake Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Diamond Lake Campground is located 8 miles north of Crater Lake on the eastern shore of Diamond Lake. It is a beautiful location for a campground, but an odd layout. The campground is on two roads next to the lake and is very long. The sites have ample space, but could use some cleaning up. Ours was on a hillside and had numerous brush piles in the middle of the site. This was nice for our fire, but also housed rodents and bugs. The site across the road did not have enough cleared space for a tent at all. The campground does have multiple boat ramps for use by campers. The restrooms were clean and located close to the sites. The shower house was amazing. This was the nicest shower house I have been to in a National or State Park: clean, heated, multiple showers with privacy areas, hot water, and solar panels on the roof. This should be a model for other facilities. I must mention that the pizza parlor is within walking distance from the south end of the campground and makes wonderful pizza. We camped at Diamond Lake Campground in a Tent.

While researching for the coming summer travels I realized that people were getting this campground mixed up with Diamond Lake RV Park. This campground is a Forest Service campground and does NOT have water, power, or sewer hookups. It does have a waste station with drinking water. We camped at Diamond Lake Campground in a Motorhome.

Beautiful lake campground. Come prepared with bug repellent, mosquito hood and/or bandanna so you don't inhale the gnats. Otherwise we had a great time. There is a nice hiking/biking trail around the entire lake. We are planning to return soon. We camped at Diamond Lake Campground in a Tent Trailer.

We spend two nights at this campground. Overall the campground was very nice -- clean, quiet and lots of trees. We did not get a chance to use/visit the showers but the other restrooms were fine with flush toilets and running water. The park even has places to dump gray water after doing dishes outside most bathrooms for those tenting (trailers can use the regular dump stations provided). Unfortunately we found that IF we wanted to reserve a spot for the next visit, only some spots are reservable online -- the remaining spots are first-come first served. A minor inconvenience, but one we can live with. If visiting in the summer, please ensure you bring bug spray as the mosquitoes can be annoying -- we didn't have too many but there were some none the less. One other thing to remember, there are only TWO stores nearby to get any supplies (the closest store outside the immediate area is ~75-80 miles away) -- one is really small and the other is about the size of your average 7-11 market with some fishing/camping supplies thrown in. Please ensure you shop for food elsewhere before coming to Diamond Lake as the available food these stores have are the basic staples and not much beyond that. We camped at Diamond Lake Campground in a Tent.

As a previous poster stated, this is the Forest Service Campground, not the RV Park. We had reservations here for 6 days; left after one since we were driven away by the mosquitoes. When we checked in, the fire pit in our site was crammed full of garbage (food and candy wrappers, toys, plates and cups, etc.), and the garbage bins were in plain sight 25 yards away. The restroom was filthy - toilet paper and trash all over the floors and sinks. I was afraid to walk in there until the next morning after it had been cleaned by camp staff. This is an enormous campground, which is in a lovely setting, but I fear its size is its downfall. Too many people, not enough staff to maintain it. I bet it's wonderful in the fall and spring. We camped at Diamond Lake Campground in a Travel Trailer.

The park is beautiful! We would love to come back! Wish we lived closer! Most sites were attractive, large and private. Paved spurs made leveling a breeze. Didn't deal with staff as gatehouse was closed this time of year but facilities were obviously very well maintained. Restrooms and showers were the nicest and cleanest I've seen anywhere. Drive to Crater Lake was less than 30 minutes. Diamond Lake is quite lovely itself. We camped at Diamond Lake Campground in a Travel Trailer.

We took the advice of a fellow reviewer and reserved G29. It is a lovely big and private site with lots of room to spread out. The lake was very high but we managed to get a couple of chairs near the water and sit with the dog (a Jack Russell) so she could swim and play. Then some jerk in a boat came and tied it up to a tree completely blocking the beach area for anyone else. The campsite is beautiful and we didn't miss the hook ups. It was nice to have the option to eat out just a 5 minute walk away (pizza etc). The nights were spectacular with the moon and the stars shining through the window in the roof of our trailer. Bike trails are excellent and the flowers and hummingbirds just amazing. It is well worth a visit. Crater Lake was o.k. but we are from Canada and after Lake Louise/Banff we are rather spoiled.

What a view. A quiet shaded area with room to bike and circle the lake. The stars shine at night almost as much as this camping area. Worth not having electrical power to enjoy. We camped at Diamond Lake Campground in a Motorhome.
