This is a very nicely setup state park. The sites have water and electric -- there is a dump station. The sites are long (some up to 90'), wide and spacious. Grass and lots of trees, but the trees are well trimmed preventing any problems....More

We're camping (RV), and this is a great location. Sites are good, and there are good hiking trails, not to mention Lost Creek Lake. It's about an hour from Crater Lake, and that's a beautiful hour, even before you get to the lake.

Stayed here while on the way to crater lake. Good clean camping site with power hook ups and water. Nice view of the lake and good to just sit and enjoy by the lakeside at dusk

This state park is very popular with the boat owning mobile home crowd but then they don't use the disgustingly dirty restrooms or cook outside with the yellow-jackets and blowing dirt. Part of the problem is that the staff does not enforce the person or...More
