It's a great place to swim when there arent 100 boats on the water. Leaking gas. If people could keep it clean, it would be awesome.
Some sites are privately owned. Sites are very good size with full hookups. Nice office with friendly hosts. This park is right off the scenic McKenzie highway. About a mile from Tokatee Golf Club (rated as one of the “Best Courses in Oregon”). We made the drive up the old McKenzie cut off road to the Dee Wright observatory at the summit. It is located right in the middle of an old lava flow. This drive is not for the faint of heart.
Some friends and I reserved the group camp and we had easy access to the river and an entire massive meadow all to ourselves. The spot was enormous, had great tree cover and bathrooms nearby. At night we sat in the meadow and watched for shooting stars. But we spent most of our time walking the trail and find spots to swim and tube down the river. The farther we walked, the fewer people we saw and the views and pools were indescribably stunning. We were there on a busy weekend so there was one area of river that was particularly crowded, but I guess that is to be expected at this type of state park location. We drove through the rest of the campground and it's beautiful but spots seemed a little crowded. It has all the amenities to make it comfortable-flush toilets, showers, wood for sale. But if you want more privacy and a HUGE space and it's within your budget, consider the group site. It was well worth it!
We had a lovely weekend on Odell Lake. Fully booked campground on the weekend of 4th of July. Reserve early. Well maintained. We stayed in site 23. We didn't have lake access, but an easy walk down to the boat dock, or the trail that runs along creeks and to the lake. There is beach area for swimming just off the trail. This is a powerboat friendly lake. It got a bit chilly still in early July at night, but there are plenty of firewood to purchase. There are some interesting fish restoration projects happening from the lake up the creek that runs along the campground. There are several nice sites by the water that I made notes for future reference:
14 is a good single lakeside site
18/17 would be great to reserve side/by/side as they are a bit open to each other
20 is nice, but right next to the boat ramp.
