Car camping is not really my jam,but if you want to be in a centralized location to everything Central Oregon has to offer (including food and amenities like stores, bars, etc.) then this is it. You will see you neighbor and the site area is a bit wide open without much privacy, but it gets the job done if all you care about is having a home base and exploring your little adventurer heart out!
Because this site is so close to the Seattle-Metro area, it can get a little over-crowded at times. Reserve in advance for best campsites and guarantee of availability! We always stayed at the large group sites (here I am complaining about the crowds yet being the source of it! YEESH!) Plenty of space, a quick car ride to a sweet swimmin' hole with ability to jump off of rocks, but the best part is Lake Kachess. You are never a far walk from the beach and it is perfection!
