Great location

This is the closest state park to Crater Lake but it's still about 45 minutes each way to the park. We reserved over the phone sight-unseen and we were assigned to A5. When we... read more

This is the closest state park to Crater Lake but it's still about 45 minutes each way to the park. We reserved over the phone sight-unseen and we were assigned to A5. When we pulled in we quickly realized we didn't want the spot. The A loop is quite exposed with little cover and our neighbors looked like they had... More

Great place to RV. Expansive grounds, clean showers/restrooms and near many attractions like Rogue River Gorge, 50 miles to Crater Lake, 50 miles to Diamond Lake. The campground sits up above Lost Creek Lake which is great for fishing, swimming, sailing, skiing etc. Marina and restaurant/store as well. Rafting the Rogue River from the Lake to Shady Cove OR is... More

This park is very spacious! Good trails, bike paths, dog friendly, and good programs for the kids. Showers in the D-loop tent site are awesome! Although due to the ban on campfires, it was uneventful. Like a football game with no footballs. The marina was closed for boat launch, but the Army Corp launch was available. The Lost Lake Res...

We camp here at least a couple times each summer. I love the running trails, the bike paths, and the roomy camping spots. The enclosed dog park is a great feature to give my labs some running and off leash time too. This is our favorite camping spot that is in close proximity to home so we can take off... More

This campsite was a great place to spend the night. It is a huge area with playgrounds, a dog park, entertainment and more. Great hiking along the gorgeous lake. Will definitely return.

Spacious campsite, with water, picnic table, fire pit, & grill. Playground & easy hiking trails. Bathroom/showers were clean & well stocked. Park rangers patrol regularly, were friendly & helpful. I had read that others had a yellow jacket problem- our site had an old yellow jacket trap hanging that was quite full but there were none around to bother us.... More

This is a nice place to camp. I have been to far prettier ones. You don't have views of the lake and you must drive to access the lake. If you like to hike the trail is great. You do have views of the lake from it. I don't like that you have to make reservations. I want to be... More

My family and I stayed here over Labor Day Weekend 2014. We were happy with the size of the camping spot we had and the cleanliness of the place. I do have a complaint, and this could just be the site we were in: YELLOWJACKETS. They were everywhere. We hadn't been there for more than 10 minutes and they were... More

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
