Annie Creek Sno-Park is located 43 miles northwest of Klamath Falls, Oregon, near the Crater Lake National Park boundary. Its proximity is rich with history, as Fort Klamath lies less than 10 miles from the Sno-Park. Fort Klamath was established as a military outpost on the Oregon Trail in 1863. Today, it’s listed on the U.S. National Register of Historic Places. If you want a break from recreating, it’s convenient to visit the Fort Klamath park and museum. Annie Creek offers more amenities than the average Sno-Park. As an official stop on the Oregon Volcanic Scenic Byway , you’ll find an interpretive kiosk, as well as two vaulted toilets. An attractive log-style warming shelter with wood stove and benches is open year round for picnics and relaxation. Snowmobilers can enjoy cruising under snow covered ponderosa pines and accessing miles and miles of trails. There are no managed cross country ski trails from Annie Creek. Besides snowmobiling, winter enthusiasts of all ages flock to Annie Creek Sno-Park for excellent sledding opportunities. Adjacent to the warming shelter lies a huge bowl shaped hill perfect for coasting your sled down. At an elevation of 4,400 feet, Annie Creek generally sees snow from late November through February. There is no potable water. Visitors need to bring plenty of water.
Free camping after April 30th. Permits are required otherwise. It's a big open parking lot with two fire pit areas and the snow hut with a wood stove in there. You can also go down to the lower lot area, which is a pretty steep and bumpy road maybe 100 yards long. Below there are a few other camp sites close to the river. Wouldn't take an RV down there even though there is space to turn around.
This is as close to the NP as you can get without being in a formal campground, which aren't open until summer season.
Our first night there were 4 other groups camping and our second night we were the only ones.
Stayed in the lower campsites. Pit toilets available but no other facilities. Very dusty, bumpy road. Not many sites available however it was very peaceful. Lots of mosquitoes. Close to Crater Lake boundary. 15 minutes to park entry, camp store, gift shop, restaurant, dump station.
Free spot! We stayed here in a truck camper and it was perfect for the night. Big lot next to a snow shelter. Not much for tent camping although I guess you could… Much more ideal for vehicle camping.
My only complaint was the awful mosquitoes.
Would definitely stay here again.
