It's a good park to see the crater lake NP. No cable, Wi-Fi and no cell and a little untidy pads but level. Walking up to the office to make phone calls and internet is inconvenient. Friendly owners, good hand outs for info in the area. Others rate it higher but for us its a 6. We camped at Crater Lake RV Park (AKA Prospect RV Park) in a Motorhome.

The park has a great woodsy feel to it with the forest all around you. Short walk to the nearby reservoir for fishing. The host greeted us and showed us, on the map, where to see sights, get gas, do some shopping, etc., which was very helpful. We had site 7 which had a large tree blocking the side so we could not quite pull in with our coach and trailer. It took us 2 hours to get set up. I should've asked for another site more strongly. There were some back-ins available and I had to unhook anyway. But, the staff men were terrific in getting my trailer hooked back up. They had free hot dogs and s'mores Saturday night which was a nice touch. Nice, short drive up to Crater Lake from here. We'd stay here again. We camped at Crater Lake RV Park (AKA Prospect RV Park) in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Make sure you take in the two Rogue River items we did: the lava tube and the waterfalls hike. Both are well worth it.

We stayed for five nights while exploring Crater Lake and the surrounding area (it's a 40 minute drive to the Crater Lake visitors center). Our site was extremely long (probably could have parked two big motorhomes in it) but not very wide / not much camping space. Fortunately there was no one next to us so we had plenty of room. The park is heavily wooded and rustic feeling. There's a nice trail leading out of the park that we could walk our dogs on (in addition to walking them through the park) which goes to the nearby dam/reservoir. The staff was friendly and helpful. We had no AT&T or Verizon cell reception, even with our booster. The office has a stronger booster on a very tall pole which you can use if needed. The WiFi worked quite well (streaming movies is not allowed), but it's worth noting the park was about half empty when we stayed. The biggest drawback (apart from the lack of cell signal) is the noise from the highway. Our site backed up to the highway so we heard very loud trucks going by all day. Fortunately at night the highway was mostly quiet. We were also surprised (and disappointed) with an extra fee when checking in. When reserving, the web site listed the rate as $28.50 (for 2-6 nights) and said "all sites have full hook-ups with 20, 30 & 50 amp service". When we checked in, we saw an extra $3 per night added to our bill for 50 amp service. There's also a per-dog fee but at least that was listed on the web site. We camped at Crater Lake RV Park (AKA Prospect RV Park) in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

There's a small convenience store in town that has basic necessities (milk, bread, etc.) but for any major shopping you'll have to drive pretty far. Best to do most grocery shopping before arriving.

The park was not well manicured, but had beautiful trees and a great forest feeling. We had a back in site, and asphalt level pad. No TV reception on our antenna. Also no Sprint or Verizon. They did have a booster at the office, so you could call. WiFi was weak and really didn't work. Great place to stay to visit Crater Lake and all the beautiful waterfalls on the Rogue River. On Sat. night they had free hotdogs and s'mores and musical entertainment. People in the office were so nice and helpful with info about this area. We camped at Crater Lake RV Park (AKA Prospect RV Park) in a Fifth Wheel.

Score a 10 for rustic and woodsy; a 10 for long, level blacktop sites; and a 10 for the nice staff who provides a lot of good information about the area and hosts a wiener roast & s'mores party (and ours featured live fiddle music) around the campfire every Saturday. Bathrooms deserve a 4 because they're small and old; better if you don't have to use them. No Verizon service at all; there's a booster next to the office, so we could get connectivity there (they don't allow streaming), but that wasn't really convenient. We were backed up to the road and did hear some road traffic; fortunately there wasn't too much of this later in the evening, and not too many sites have this issue, but you may want to ask for a site away from the road. Overall we liked this park and would definitely return. We camped at Crater Lake RV Park (AKA Prospect RV Park) in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

If you're staying for several days, do your grocery shopping in advance. Gas, post office, pizza joint, and small little market in Prospect, but that's about it. The Trophy Room looks to be a cool bar/restaurant that will re-open soon; that will be a nice addition to the little town. We liked Beckie's 8 miles up the road for breakfast - it's right on the way to Crater Lake NP.

The cost includes $28.50 per night, plus $2.75 per day for 50 amp, and $1.00 per day for a dog. This park is approximately 20 miles from Crater Lake National Park. The park is big rig friendly, with interior paved roads and asphalt sites. We had a pull-through site, but I believe there are back-in sites available as well. Sites are nicely spaced in a wooded setting, but the trees aren't a problem for maneuvering. You can choose 30 or 50 amp service, but there is an additional charge of $2.75 per day for 50 amp, which wasn't mentioned until it appeared on our receipt and we inquired. There is also an additional fee ($1 per day) for pets, which wasn't mentioned upfront. Check-in was friendly and there was a guide to the site. Verizon service, both data and cell, was practically nil at this park. There was park wi-fi, but it didn't work very well. The park does sell or rent wi-fi boosters. The park does not have a laundry room. There are trails for walking pets. There's a nice picnic area a short walk through the woods, adjacent to a reservoir. We would stay again if passing through on a weekend, but not during the week since we need internet service. We camped at Crater Lake RV Park (AKA Prospect RV Park) in a Motorhome.

The park was wonderful. They had a direct tv receiver box and had a good variety of channels. After we got set up the direct tv would not connect due to one of the dishes were blocked so they moved us. They helped us get moved over and set back up in the new site. The Wi-Fi was unusable but other than that, we had a great time and the people were very helpful and friendly. Would stay there again!

This park is well done for a remote location. We stayed in a pull through (site 6) that had asphalt pavement. Only objection was that it was not level. The park is situated in the trees and these do not present any problems for maneuvering. It is convenient to Crater Lake NP. We would return.

This campground is very nice, in a beautiful setting. We had a back in site that was spacious. The Wi-Fi was pretty fast. The staff is very friendly and helpful. There are some quite impressive waterfalls, giant boulders, etc. very close by in the town of Prospect. We stayed two nights and visited Crater Lake while there.

We liked this Park a lot. We only stayed for one night as we were enroute to Crater Lake and beyond but we wished we could have stayed for longer. Beautiful setting. Shower and restroom facilitates were rustic but clean. Staff were fantastic. We had a great spot (Site 10) at the back of the campground and it couldn't have been better. Level, paved and very quiet. Cable and WiFi were adequate. We would definitely stay here again. We camped at Crater Lake RV Park (AKA Prospect RV Park) in a Motorhome.

If you like trees, you will like this campground. The sites are large and well maintained. We reserved a pull-through, but were assigned a back in when we arrived. However, the back-ins are easy due to the wide interior roads and site design. Large rigs should not have any problems. The office staff is friendly and you are escorted to your site and offered assistance. The Wi-Fi worked well, but with all the trees we could not get our roof top satellite to work.

This park is right on the highway with trucks passing all night long. We kept the fan going which allowed us to block much of the noise. The manager/owner was the friendliest we had ever experienced. Very descriptive maps of sights to see. The bathrooms are one toilet and two showers on a trailer; they appear old. We think RV parks should have more than one toilet but maybe people are using their rig now days. Not much in town in the way of groceries so get gasoline and groceries in Medford before you get here. We camped at Crater Lake RV Park (AKA Prospect RV Park) in a Fifth Wheel.

This is a great RV park. We stayed three nights while visiting Crater Lake. There is a bit of noise from the highway. The campground hosts were very knowledgeable about the area. I would definitely recommend this park. We camped at Crater Lake RV Park (AKA Prospect RV Park) in a Fifth Wheel.

Level back-in space. WiFi at office sporadic at best. Spent 2 nights while visiting Crater Nat park and area attractions. Not a lot of campground choices in the area so would probably stay again if in the area. We camped at Crater Lake RV Park (AKA Prospect RV Park) in a Motorhome.
