Date of Stay: September, 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. We camped at Natural Bridges Campground in a Motorhome.
