Hidden gem!

This place is a hidden gem. 200 campsites all with plenty of room. The A, B, and C loops all have 30/20 and and water. D loop is dry camping only. No sewer but a dump station right at the entrance. Reservations can be made with at least 72 hr notice.

It’s now run as a county park, formerly a…

Tucked away from all distractions, this campground has everything you need. No reception, which was preferred on this trip. The lodge has ice, small restaurant and rentable water toys. Gorgeous view of the mountain and spacious sites!

Fine for a night

We spent a full day exploring Crater Lake and needed a place to stay for the night.  Since the campgrounds within the national park were closed for the season, we searched The Dyrt for a nearby place to set up camp before dark, and found nearby Annie Creek Sno-Park. It's a big parking lot with a…

Nice stop while visiting Crater Lake.

Campsites are nestled among large pines.  Your site may not see much sun but the trees add their own warmth.

The campground is not far from Crater Lake National Park, about 25 miles so it is conveniently located to visit the Park.

Nice, fairly new restrooms and showers.  The campsites for…

Nestled in the trees

Camped here for a night after visiting Crater Lake, couldn’t be more happy with my decision. The parking lot is easy to find, head down the road on the right with the “end maintenance” sign as someone has pictured, and you will see spots pop up pretty quick. I pulled off to the first set of spots…

Nice, quiet site by the creek

We were the only ones using this site in mid October, it was beautiful being immersed in the forest right along the creek. Each spot had a picnic table and fire pit, with a good amount of flat space for a tent or vehicle. Easy to get to on a dirt road, and very close to crater lake if that is your…

Great Location

Plenty of available spaces, and I think even in the heart of summer there would be availability. The dirt road isn't the kind you need to do a Hail Mary to drive down. Our van did just fine, and I think a big rig could handle itself. While outside you can hear the cars from the main highway nearby,…

Free between May 1 and October 31, fee between November 1 and Aprio 30. When pulling in, there were a number of vehicles in the parking lot. We drove down the dirt road to the right and there were plenty of places available, and I think even in summer there would be ample room. This place is…

Perfect Stopover.

Drove through Crater Lake NP for sunset and stumbled upon this Sno-Park later that evening.

It was a chilly night, and I got up super early to hit the road. So no pictures.

But I do know that I didn't have cell service (AT&T) on the paved part of the park but was able to pick up 2 bars once…

Awesome campground!

We had a great time camping at this free campground! Its secluded but pretty close to HWY 97, which is nice! There was a vault toilet there, but no other facilities so make sure to bring enough water, wipes, the whole 9 yards! We came the dat before hunting season opened so we got the last campsite…

Nice large site just a mile off of OR-138 on NF-70

We are full-timers and have a 36 ft Class A with a Cherokee Trailhawk tow and had scouted the area before arriving with the RV. NF-70 is gravel and in pretty good shape, i.e., no potholes, but is heavily washboarded. This wasn’t an issue for the Cherokee, but with a stiffer suspension, I had to…

Family Friendly

I stayed in August 2021, thankfully wildfire smoke wasn’t bad but everyone thought it would be so all reservation holders seemed to cancel. This left us with a loop largely to ourselves, which was fantastic. We enjoyed use of the bear box, never had a problem. The site was very quiet at night…

Enjoyed our short stay

We didn’t stay long and were a bit disappointed that the showers were closed due to a Covid, but other than that the campground was perfect for what we needed. Our campsite felt secluded, but we were still close to the bathrooms and could walk to the restaurant and convenience store.
