10 Parks near Prospect, Oregon
Sep 2012 - $5.00
The cost reflects a 50% Federal Senior Pass discount (available to any U.S. citizen over 62 years of age for $10 for a lifetime pass). This campground is actually located close to Union Creek, an unincorporated area 11 miles north of Prospect. This is one of several Forest Service campgrounds along highway 62 between Medford, OR and Crater Lake National Park. Other than this campground, the other campground that is suitable for RV’s is Farewell Bend CG. (See review elsewhere). The campground is along the Rogue River and almost all of the campsites are right next to the River with the views and the sound of the River. The campground is far enough away from highway 62 that noise is not an issue. The campground is nice and dark at night, which we like. Some of the sites are long enough for a big RV and most are fairly level. It is a bit tight getting an RV into the campground, but can be done with care. There are no hookups, no dump station and no water available. If you need a full dump station, it is available about 11 miles south in at the Crater Lake (Prospect) RV park for a fee. There are only pit toilets. This is a good campground for visiting Crater Lake National Park, about 20 miles further along Highway 62. It is a lot less expensive than the campground within the park. There are trails and other natural features of interest within the area. Becky’s restaurant, famous for their pies is less than a mile from the campground. This is a first-come, first-served campground. No reservations are accepted and it does fill during the prime summer months. - TheJim

The park is set inside a beautiful forest, with very tall, mature trees and landscaping. It's a gorgeous setting that is peaceful and serene. Nearby there are many hiking opportunities to gorges and waterfalls that will take your breath away... and Crater Lake is just a short drive away. We only planned to stay two nights; we stretched it to seven.
The WiFi is awful and data coverage is even worse. We didn't come here to surf the internet so it was ok, but still... some connectivity would have been nice just to look up nearby attractions.
The people are super friendly and helpful, the grounds are immaculately maintained and the sites are long and spacious. Hookups were very good... water is a little hard but tastes great, and the 50 amp power was rock solid.
We'll definitely be back. - Wryly Blithe

it rained the whole time we were there and since the site is narrow asphalt surrounded by dirt/pine needles it was pretty messy, but not the parks fault. The roads in the park are very narrow which do make it difficult for larger rigs to maneuver into the narrow sites. There is no cell service unless you sit on the porch by the office. There is no satellite reception due to the trees, although we were told at check in that they had Direct TV we could hook up to. When we could not get it to work, the staff said well it didn't always work out well. There is no internet service. You can get the park internet to work if you sit on the porch by the office. Since it was to rain the entire length of our stay, we decided to leave early and the park did refund the last few days of our stay. - Carol Warren

This is an RV park review not a review of the beautiful area around it. the park is tight, with so many trees that satellite is doubtful. The restrooms are trailers that have been brought in, one toilet and two showers in each, very old, so old they appear dirty and linoleum coming up, etc. They need to be replaced. There is no WiFi and cell service does not work here. The hosts are wonderful. Traffic noise dies down at night. - saturn7

This is an amazing National Forest campground. We were traveling with friends and snagged a double site right on the Rogue River. The RV length restriction indicates 40 feet but we were able to get our 45 foot motorhome in. Part of the reason is where the site was located which was right at the first intersection next to the camp host. We wouldn't have made it around the loop due to tight corners and overhanging trees. The double sites are close together (only one of us could extend our awning) but the "yard" is huge. I mean huge! Nice firepit and we had our own "private" rocks on the Rogue River. Be aware that the water is frigid! We were lucky enough to be there for a free fishing weekend and had a blast catching trout. There are no hookups or WII FI and no cell coverage. We found the best place to get connected was at the library in Prospect. They have free and very good WII FI, and cell phone service is available here. There were lots of bugs when we were there but it seems seasonal. Some road noise but quiet at night. Some sites are noisier than others. Tons of sightseeing in the area. We will definitely return. - Free

We were lucky to get site 22 on the Rogue River. This site is first come, first served. We showed up on a Thursday morning in late June and there were several campsites available. Our family loved Farewell Bend. The campground is beautiful, under the shade of a tall evergreen forest. The campsites are large and most have some level of screening shrubs between them, so we felt very private. The campsites are back in, with picnic tables and fire rings. The bathrooms were clean and had electrical outlets. No showers, however. They had grey water dump stations by the bathrooms and tap water, but no hookups. The Rogue River rages through a narrow rock chute on the northern boundary of the campground. It's beautiful and sounds great, but be Very careful if you have little ones…it's quite dangerous. There was a near drowning the day we arrived when a kid fell in and had to be pulled from the river, unconscious and bloody, but alive. Just downstream from the campground is the Upper Rogue River gorge, which would be certain death to anybody swept down that way. So keep an eye on the kids around the river! On a positive note, the campground is criss-crossed with great forest trails, perfect for biking, and there is a kids play area in the center. The Rogue River gorge is a short hike downstream and is beautiful. Union Creek Resort is on the highway right at the gorge, with a general store, ice cream shop, and a fantastic restaurant called Beckie's. Overall I highly recommend this campground. - f18shack
May 2014 - $9.00
Beautiful campground with lush vegetation and lots of space between sites. Campground host very friendly and helpful. Excellent central base camp from which to explore the Rogue, Crater Lake, Diamond Lake and the North Umpqua's many waterfalls. If you camp next to the river you won't hear much of the highway. I would camp here again in a heartbeat. - Old Mountain Man

Very nice wide open spaces, not overcrowded. No sewer at the site but a nice dump station. Our site did not offer a lot of shade until late, late afternoon but that is when you need it most. We did not take advantage of the other end of the park near the lake since we arrived late. Great paths to walk and nice dog areas. Wonderful for the price, I would recommend to anyone for a nice break from your typical RV park. Very relaxing. - Peggy G

This is a beautiful campground, grass, and trees, paved level, spacious sites with water & electric hookups, no sewer, but there is a dump station. The bathrooms/showers were very clean and up to date and well taken care of, as is the entire campground. There is a nice fenced pet area.
There is firewood for sale in the campground.
We were in B loop and din't notice any of the road noise mentioned by others.
There is a nice trail down by the lake.
The only problem we had, was though no fault of the campground, there was a large fire that covered the entire area with heavy smoke at times, but never really threatened the CG.
If we are ever in the area again, we will certainly stay here. - bukhrn

Very much enjoyed our 4 night stay. Our spot was spacious and shady and we had a bit of a lake view. Bathrooms clean, albeit we were there during fires and the park was not full. Would be a 9.5 if they had sewer and a 10 if they had a Verizon signal. Can't really complain when the Oregon State Parks are a third of the price of overpriced CA State Parks. - MrsWeller

Nice quiet place to stay. We only stayed 1 night but there was no trouble and we were placed far enough back that the road didn't bother us at all. - CarlaF

Nice little Jackson County Park where the Elk Creek flows into the Rogue River. Paved roads and spaces with many trees. A little tight maneuvering in the park with our 40' RV but made it ever so nicely around to our site. Nice wide and level spaces with water, elec, table and fire ring (dump station at exit). Wonderful view of the Rogue River right out our front window. We had 4 bars ATT cell and 4G data for WiFi. No roof top satellite or over the air antenna. Some traffic noise from Hwy 62 during the day, but quiet at night. Very nice Host. We will return to this wonderful park on the river. - Lu Larson

If you need WiFi, don't stay here. The WiFi did not work at all for the entire week we were there. I went to the office and they said it only works in the office. I tried it there and while it worked, it took 5 minutes to load one page. They said it's really slow. Also, geese poop covers the entire grass area. They want all pet owners to pick up after their pets (which they should) but they don't pick up after the geese so your pets end up stepping all over the geese poop. I wanted to point these two things out but here are the positive: Gorgeous RV Park with Amazing River and Great office staff. Very close spacing with concrete pad. - San Yun

Beautiful setting, right on the Rogue River. Good size sites with large patio pad & picnic table. Park is very clean and well kept, but with no privacy between sites. There are many permanent residents, but without the usual clutter. Staff was friendly, but all business.
We stayed two nights and spent most of our time away from the park, but we did see several people fishing. Great place for a short stop. - Nanabanana

This park in a treed setting on the banks of the Rogue River. We had a level, gravel, FHU, pull-through with an unobstructed view of the river right through the windshield. Our site was one of the few that was, as requested, satellite friendly. That was good because the cable TV was only 12 channels. Their 802.11 network was adequate for our minimal needs (e-mail and surfing). The park has a lot of extended stay customers. It appears to be about 50/50 between pull-through and back-in sites. For recreation, there are horseshoe pits and you can fish right from the river bank. There is a boat launch ramp, Also along the river are sever wooden decks with a picnic table, a BBQ pavilion, and a boardwalk that goes west under the bridge. The bathrooms/showers and laundry are in the center of the park and barely adequate for this size park. They are older, but clean. I liked the park because of the great site we had (river view and satellite friendly), but most people won't get that. The cost is also way out of line at over $50 a night. - Jerry S

They said big rigs OK' however unless you want to tear the roof off your RV, I recommend you stay clear of this park. They told us it was a RV park; however, I think we were the only transient RV in the park and judging from the leaf accumulation and low hanging tree branches on all the roads, there hasn't been an overnighter in some time. The staff was friendly, but that is the only nice thing I can say. We damaged our ladder from trees and both entrances are bad, but the south entrance is almost impossible with a RV. The front is accessible, but you will drag branches on the roof. I promise, we will NEVER return. - flyturbo60

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

$35 included all taxes. They give you a code for the restrooms but the locks don't work so you don't need them. They really need hand soap in the restrooms. Only the front sites have grass, the rest are dirt back in the trees. The sites without grass have a wooden deck, but ours needed work. Some boards were warped. WiFi was barely ok. - Calif Dan

What a wonderful find at the end of a long drive from Seattle! A pool and shade on a hot day, just minutes from I-5. We are on a path to California, but what a treat to spend a a night in a park-like setting. Quiet, with manicured acreage to just hang out and wind down. Wonderful amenities , including a pool, family friendly, but managed to be quiet and slow-paced. Turn off your tv and roam. Oh, yes, the turns might be a LITTLE tight, but you get trees! We are not expert drivers, but we were fine here. Feels like one of the private parks. - Coloradorver
Sep 2013 - $30.00
Quiet campground in a park-like setting. The staff (which appears to be one person) is friendly. capable, and accommodating. The baths, showers and laundry are very clean. I'm only giving this a lower score because there is no cable, the WiFi is extremely slow, and there are PAY showers. I haven't run into pay showers in a campground in years. - cactuslady
