Me and my daughter did some tent camping here in August. WE got ma space in the trees overlooking the lake, quite private. Some of the larger spaces are quite open for tents, but everyone seemed to be having a great time. Great family camp ground. and near the town of Shady Cove for groceries.

On the drive to Crater Lake, I stopped by Joseph H. Stewart State Park. This is a very pretty state park which includes Lost Creek Reservoir. This is a large lake with boating, water sports, and swimming possibilities. One can also fish for trout and bass. Although I just visited as a day visitor, there is also a nice campground... More

This is a very pleasant state park campground. The camping area has shade, there is space between campsites but not much privacy. Campsites are fairly level and grassy. I don't think that any of the sites with services have a view of the lake. The bathrooms and showers are well maintained. My only complaint was that you can't adjust the... More

This a breath-taking experience! We have visited in the summer and in the winter. Summer camping and hikes along with a tour of the crater are a must to experience. We enjoyed a free snow showing tour with a group of friends in the winter is truly a winter wonderland of natural beauty. Thankful for the hot cocoa in the... More

Booked about two months in advance going on just what was available online. So happy we did. Clean park, lots of things to do and very safe. We did tent camping and stayed in spot D23. I recommend staying in the spots around here as they have a little more privacy but above all else, you have a view of... More

We stayed here the first time Sept. 2013 and even though the weather wasn't the greatest we enjoyed most everything the park had to offer. So, when our neighbors invited us to join them again june 27, 2014 to celebrate one of their birthdays, we gladly did and had another fabulous time. It's a great place to enjoy great neighbors...

Never having camped before, I was a bit anxious about embarking on this trip. We drove about 8 hours to reach the campsite - a LONG way if things didn't go well. I was very pleasantly surprised from the moment we drove into the park. First of all, the signage to the campgrounds were very visable from the highway, rendering... More

I have mixed feelings about this campsite. The amenities offered are great if you're looking for some elite camping: hot showers, flush toilets, a little grill in each site, and constant patrolling around the area by park rangers. Here is the thing though...the campsites in themselves are quite exposed and there is no clear delineations between them that would allow... More

What more could you want? Lost Creek Lake is vast and lovely. The camp sites are treed, large, and quiet. The restrooms are clean with good showers. Crater Lake is close and the scenic byway through the forest is beautiful.
