Eating me Alive!

This camp ground is clean, has showers/bathrooms and lots of space. Access to the lake is super close too! The only bad thing about this whole area is the mosquitos that are everywhere at dusk and dawn. Bring repellent as at one point my wife counted 22 mosquitos on my back! I know insects can’t be prevented but this is only reason why this doesn’t get five stars. We stayed at B3 tent area :)

Great location, short walk to Diamond Lake

This campground is huge! Well maintained restrooms with flushing toilets. There is one shower facility that was quite a walk from our campsite but very well maintained, worth the drive across the campground after a dusty day of hiking. Great location as it is a short drive to the North Entrance to Crater Lake.

Quiet....

This was a nice campground with well maintained sites and roads- the bathrooms and shower houses were in pretty good condition, and it was super quiet…..with the exception of the fire crews returning to camp from fighting wild fires…. make sure you bring the big dope- there’s a lot of mosquitos! The campground is between Diamond lake (a short walk away) and Crater lake which is just stunning! If you are anywhere nearby- it’s a MUST SEE!

First to Review
3 stars cuz the mosquitos were swarming

Great campsite near Crater Lake, and water was very close to this site. The mosquitos were UNREAL, though. They swarm and stay swarming until you get in your tent. Bring bugspray and you won't get bit, but it was definitely pretty annoying. Facilities were really nice, wake up early enough to get warm showers. The showers are on timers, but I probably restarted it 3/4 times.

It's also much colder than you think it'll be. We went the first week in July, and temperatures probably got down to the mid-30s. Bring a blanket!
