For scenic views this campground is pretty hard to beat. Lake Crescent is stunning. The water is very clean and great for swimming in August. The campground is not laid out well and the sites are small and close together. Prepare to be friendly with your neighbors. It’s alway a drag to flush the septic system 6 feet from your neighbors door… “howdy neighbor!” The staff was great, but the campground basically unpoliced, so you end up with noise and dogs running loose. There are a variety of cabins available, a restaurant, and nice gift area.
Tent sites are terrible. Really close together and no views. Cabins block lake views.
RV sites - are pretty tight as well.
The lake is beautiful!
Didn't eat in the very expensive restaurant. Found the manager - I think that is who they were - to be only friendly to some folks (not us). They did not provide information about the campground - like where the water taps are or where to dump trash. We had to use an RV sites water spout as we couldn't find a general use one.
The bathrooms have only one shower and only one sink. It is hard to brush your teeth or wash your face when there is a line of people waiting behind you. As well the hand dryer in both the men's and women's bathrooms were incredibly loud (all night long).
Trash and recycling were unnecessarily far away. So far - that when I was doing laundry - someone came into the laundry room to dump their trash instead of walking to the bins on the opposite side of the campground. For a campground that was purchased by the National Park - metal animal proof bins, I am sure, could be attained.
The price was okay. Obviously though, folks who were paying for the higher priced cabins ($270+ a night) - were the focus. Us bike campers were not well received.
But again - the lake is beautiful!
