This is a good campground if you are traveling between the Portland area and Crater Lake and want to stop half way. It is a very large campground located between the Highway and the River. There is road noise as well as train noise that is across the river, but didn't notice either in the early hours of the morning. The spot I was in was good size, had very little shade, and was a distance from the toilets and water. There was a nice access ramp to the river, as well as additional parking near the ramp. Not a campground I would travel to stay in from the Portland area but would stay again if I was headed to Southern Oregon and needed to stop.
Overall a good campground. Sites on the river are spectacular. Other sites are mostly small or have issues with road noise. Plan on reserving a site on the river if possible. They do not disappoint!
I really liked this campground. I really enjoyed our 3 days here and the dogs loved swimming in the river. There are nice trails running through this campground. It was nice and quiet and plenty of space and privacy from your neighbors. Next time I stay here I would pick a different site since the one we were in wasn't good for hammock camping and we had to set up two tents instead of one. The site was small and parking was tight for two vehicle.
The access to the water was nice and so were the park hosts. They gave us free passes to see the beach up the road - but it was dried up and probably was for years. Strange they gave us the passes. There are some hikes around but you have to drive to them. The toilets are the vault toilets and there are no sinks/showers. Not a bad experience but if I'm already car camping I like nicer amenities. We stayed in the group camping area and it wasn't bad. More privacy than normal group sites since everyone had their own site on the loop. Some road noise. It wasn't a bad place, just not somewhere I would make a special trip to camp at.
