Mazama Village Campground is located seven miles from the rim of Crater Lake. The campground is mostly forested and each site has a picnic table, fire ring, and bear locker. 75% of the sites are are reservable in advance and the rest are available on a first-come, first-served basis.
site: large site. close to neighbors. amenities: clean. basic. busy. attractions: Crater lake. I would go camping here again.
I tried to stay there during August but didn't have reservations and the campground was full. Plan ahead and make reservations.
The park is absolutely beautiful. It takes a bit to get into the park and once you're on the top of the mountain you'll be greeted by incredible views of Crater Lake. The Mazama campground is a few miles down a curvy side of a mountain, not too far and you get to see the land surrounding the lake itself. Sign in at the office and grab some firewood. The campground has multiple loops and I was concerned about being on top of our neighbors but the campsites are pretty large and we felt secluded enough. Running bathrooms and water pumps were a short walk away as well. (Showers are at the office) We only stayed one night and left with anticipation for round two.
Such a beautiful place to take the family
I gave this campground 3 stars because it is not for adventurers, it is a campground for families. There is a lot to offer for families though, clean bathrooms, restaurants, paved pathways, easy access to the lake. So if you are looking for a little more adventure go to the other smaller campgrounds around the area. If you have small children this would be a great campground for you!
Campground has everything you need. Great time of year to bike around the rim.
This is a great place to escape and experience the wonderful beauty Oregon has to share.
Crater Lake National Park itself is an amazing, unique place. The campsites were nothing special and a bit close together, but a great perk was the neat show in the amphitheater at night. Bathrooms were an average cleanliness. Location is the key to making this a 4 star campground.
Campsites are really decently sized, but kind of close together. Right off the road/easy access. Bathrooms (no showers). MAKE SURE TO BOOK.
Campground is solid, Crater Lake is incredible!
