10 Parks near Prospect, Oregon
Jul 2016 - $22.00
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

This CG is a great location for taking in Crater Lake...just 6 miles from Rim Village. The sites and interior roads are very tight with a lot of tree damage from a tough winter. Very nice spacing between sites. All sites are heavily wooded, and not all sites have electricity. There are water spigots through the loops and at the dump station.
We wedged into site F10 with our 32' fifth wheel and had to use a come-a-long and strap to move bent trees out of the way. After exploring the rest of the CG later we should have parked in loop C. All sites are paved in C and a bit more big rig friendly.
There is little to no cell/wifi in the CG. In F10/9 area we had just enough cell to send simple texts with no photos or emoji's.
Restrooms were typical CG with dirty floors from a lot of foot traffic. Showers are individual locked rooms with luke warm water in a cold room.
The mosquitos were relentless and plentiful especially on hiking trails, CG...everywhere!
Overall it is a delightful CG and close to the Rim. We stayed two nights and that was enough to explore Crater Lake. - JeffDeb

Most of the sites in this campground are pull-throughs and most are wide enough to put slides out. Be careful, though, as they aren't necessarily easy to get in/out of if you have a larger rig. One loop in the campground is off-limits to large rigs because it is pretty tight in a couple of spaces. There is a picnic table, fire ring and food storage box at each site. We had no cell phone (AT&T) or WiFi (Verizon) in the park. We did have radio and Dish TV. Attendants at the check in booth are very friendly and helpful. Campground store has a pretty good selection of items, especially since it's the end of the season. - Bobbi1948

Convenient to crater lake, although it is a bit of a drive just to get to rim village. Campsites well spaced out, they have an odd system of finding your own site but seems to work. Reservations were not available until about 2 weeks before our July visit. Nps website says some sites are first come but upon calling the campground they said all are Reserved and they book up months in advance. This was so not correct! Agree with precious reviewers who say the park staff (xanterra ) don't have thir act together. Once here it was easy to check in, they tell you which color campsite to look for, and find your spot. We ended up with a site which was perfect for us. Would have rated higher if not for the misinformation of pxanterrparl staff. Restrooms uncared for. Feels like this park is the stepchild of the nps system. - MeetTheGriswolds

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

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

The best thing about this park, for us, was NO road noise. Sites are plenty wide enough, and many have a small deck with a picnic table, but turns were tight and some branches needed to be cut back. Also, entry/exit lane was long, but too narrow and would require one RV to pull onto grass if there was an entry and an exit at the same time. Shade trees were nice, but at the time of year we were there, the ones at our site were dropping a lot of acorns on the RV, and us. Large flocks of turkeys walking through the site and ducks in the pond were fun to watch, and didn't cause any noticeable mess, but we did not have a dog. Showers use quarters. Mail slots for long term residents were in the laundry room where anyone could have access to it. We enjoyed our 4 day stay, but left with some dents and mild scratches. - Steve & Mary

Convenient to the Nat. Park. Wooded and rustic. Limited or no wifi, cell coverage iffy. We experienced a problem. On July 1st, we had a flat tire. Since there was no Verizon service, the managers loaned us their landline to call for Roadside assistance and make arrangement for a tire replacement and mount service to get us somewhere to get the other 5 replaced. It was a relief and a kindness we really appreciate. Good people! After getting replacements in LaPine, OR, our trip continues. - betteonline

This RV park is in a lovely woodsy setting and all campsites are very well maintained. There was enough breathing room between us and our neighbors on both sides. In 5 minutes you can be in the woods and take lovely walks. It was very quiet.
The best thing about it, for us, was the folks managing the RV park. The husband and wife were so helpful! We got a flat on our 5th wheel and waited over an hour for help to arrive from Medford. When the guy from Medford could not get the lug nuts off, the park manager said "I think I have that tool", and scooted off to get it. In the meantime, the guy from Medford left! He turned us on to someone in town who came to help and when we were successfully changed, he used his on site compressor to check air pressure all around.
All of this took about 4 hours past our check out time, but he said "no worries". We just could not get over how nice and helpful he and his wife were for us, even accepting a package delivery for us while we were there. We would stay here again in a heartbeat. - Barbara Lee Tondro

Park is well laid out with quite a few LARGE sites. Lots of tall trees but they are under control and not a hindrance except to satellite. If you have a roof mounted dish, good luck! Ours was not so I was able to place on neighbor's lot (with his permission) and found a shot through trees. Staff is super nice. We had our mail forwarded here and they delivered to site. Was told that wifi was available at office. We have an external adapter and picked it up well at a distant site. There is no laundry but there is a fair one in town. Very quiet. We would stay here again. - vmi1962

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

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

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

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

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

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

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
