TripAdvisor Ratings & Reviews
I wouldn’t stay here! Not nearly as nice as the photos. Do yourself a favor and stay at the Forest Service campground down the road! And I’d recommend shelling out the extra money for a lakefront site!
I believe this is the closest campground to Crater Lake. The surroundings are very pretty. They provided a nice campground with adequate room and the space was level. We had full hook ups and did not use their facilities. The WiFi was nonexistent but you can live for a few days without it to see Crater Lake.
Park is ok I think they may have different management, we have stayed before the staff was much more laid back than the past. They have graveled many of the sites and it seems like they are trying to improve the facilities. Good shade no Wifi cell service is spotty, very pet-friendly ( on leash ) Wil definitely be back
Will never stay there again
We booked for one week stay. The location is close to Crater Lake as noted on their website. We had several issues. We arrived on Sunday June 30th, the site was maybe ¼ full at the most. Pretty empty. We felt that we were treated differently because we booked a stay there for seven days. We will not stay there again. 1. The website instructs you to NOT use their address, they give you GPS coordinates, we found that there was to many numbers with the N coordinates, it took us about 13 miles past the resort and to a forest service road. When I pointed it out to the office staff, they asked if I followed the directions on the confirmation e-mail they sent. There isn’t any directions on the confirmation. 2. The site we were assigned W30, was interesting, the trailer space itself was level and that is about the only place it was level. The concrete pad was at the front of the space and due to a large tree, it was small, not rectangular compared to other sites. 3. I asked if we could be moved to another site, as our site was not level. The manager came out and I explained that our site was not level and could we be moved to another site. She said NO because we had a week booked and that they were full for the week and no one who has stayed there has never complained. (They did not fill up until the evening of July 3). Most of the trailers around us were there for one to two days. 4. Our sewer connection at the site was elevated. When we said something to the people in the golf carts, one person responded that the site was built 50 years ago. Husband had to be creative to get a down flow. A few days later one of the resort employees took a look at it and said that he had never seen any other site with the connection that was not level with the ground. 5. Our second night there, husband started a campfire and had cooked some brats on the grill and brought them into the trailer. Less than five minutes later, a person on the golf cart knocked on the door and told us not to leave our campfire unattended. Husband explained that he just brought the food in and was going back out. During our week there, people all around our space let their fires unattended for the night and we never saw any employees go over and speak to them.
Great park to explore the area from
We were here the weekend after Memorial Day weekend, it wasn't very busy. Like other campers have stated, we were led to our campsite, and assisted with backing in. Everyone that worked there was friendly, seemed like there were a lot of return campers, also friendly. Most of the sites are large, watch out for the ones with electrical posts near the road, makes it hard to plug in if you can't reach it. Some sites are also narrow. It is close to South Shore Pizza, which we didn't try, but reviews say it is good, you can walk to it from the RV park. Drove to Crater Lake, awesome, the waterfalls on Highway 138, totally worth it, and the Diamond Lake Resort. Be mindful that fuel is not close. Verizon coverage isn't too bad, radio ok in RV, no tv, but we don't have satellite. We will stay here again.
