Only spent one night at Crane Prairie, and that was a Sunday night. The campground was clean and well maintained and the sites were large. The lake seemed nice, though we didn't have a chance to get on the water.
Crane Prairie is about a 30 minute drive from Bend, so far enough to feel like…
Crane Prairie is a popular spot in Central Oregon off the Cascade Lakes Highway west of 4 season resort town of Bend, OR.
The spots are all a little different and many are downright huge. Of course, people like to camp lakeside but those are actually not the best for privacy.
We prefer the blue…
We had a beautiful tent spot right up next to the lake but had to leave because the ants were insane. It was like the ground was moving. There were ant hills two feet tall. We ended up going to elk lake and had a wonderful time.
