Very nice park with friendly and helpful staff. Our site was level with a patio just out of front door. Each site had a table and fire ring. We had a pull through site that was plenty long for our 40 foot RV and toad. All hook ups were working as expected and in a good spot for hooking up. No cable but the site we had got Direct TV from dish. Laundry room was very good and wash was only $1.25 and dryers were $1.75 for 1 hour.

We stayed here to visit Crater Lake and was close to North Entrance with friends. Would stay again and would recommend to any one that needs a location close to Crater Lake. We camped at Diamond Lake Campground in a Motorhome.

There is a bike trail right around the lake as far as I can see on the map. As we drove around the lake we saw the trail in lots of places. Would come and say again but just bring insect repellent for when times u need it.

USFS camp. Check Rec.gov for description of site to make sure you will fit. Some sites are a challenge and will require leveling. Roads are narrow with nasty speedbumps. Sites ae nice and spacious and in most cases screened by vegetation. Restrooms needed more detailed attention. We camped at Diamond Lake Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

During the summer seriously consider a reservation. Fuel and other staples are costly. It is an easy drive to Crater Lake, although this year (2017) road repairs in the park cause delays.

This campground is located on Diamond Lake in Oregon right on the scenic byway in the Umpqua National Forest. There are so many campsites at this park and they do take reservations starting in the middle of June. If possible, get a site on the lower roads next to the lake. Beautiful views looking out at the mountain across the way. We camped in early June so no reservations, no hookups anytime but the bathhouse with showers was open. Campers are allowed to bring their boats here for fishing and they dock them right next to their sites. There are some beautiful sites here looking out on the lake and mountains (snow-capped when we were there). There is a 11 mile bike trail that goes around the lake that goes through the park. We rode our bikes but at both ends we were stopped by snow on the northern and southern shore. This was just an overnight for us but the campers around us offered us coffee and fish to cook for dinner. Great place to camp. We camped at Diamond Lake Campground in a Motorhome.

Campground is located on Diamond Lake in Oregon near the scenic byway in the Umpqua National Forest. There is no hookup, no satellite due to the trees and no cell service. We scraped trees branches the whole way to our site, this is not a big rig friendly location. We were there during mosquitoes season and this is the worst I have ever seen them, could not keep them out of our bus or could not walk in park without getting eat up. We camped at Diamond Lake Campground in a Motorhome.

Made a two night reservation in advance. Reservation did not mean anything, arrived site not vacated. Park office attendant told us to go speak with the people still at the site. We had to wait an additional 2 hours for access. After setting up camp finally, right before dusk we had another man arrive at our site only to tell us the office just sold him our site. We were very tired from travel to get there that day and decided to let the other man just camp at our site. The people running the office could not care less about what is or is not going on. The views inside this campground are breath taking. Just beware of what could happen. We camped at Diamond Lake Campground in a Tent.

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.

Take a drive to the Cinnamon Butte fire lookout. You can hike up to the lookout or drive the 3 miles (4 Wheel drive would be helpful, no motorhomes or trailers) and climb the tower and visit the ranger who lives in the tower. The views are unbelievable.
I also recommend the trolley tour at Crater Lake.

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.
