“Mazama Campground”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 26, 2011

I was less than impressed with this campground. I understand that the weather cannot be controlled but most of the tent sites were either underwater or under snow. We spent about 25 minutes driving all the loops to find a site that we could put our tent in. After we finally found one, as soon as we opened the door we were swarmed by mosquitoes. The bathrooms, while close by our site, were very cold and had no warm running water. We got so fed up we bailed a night early and spent a lovely night on the OR coast instead. A previous reviewer noted that if the snow is melting don't stay here. I would agree. Many trails would have been greatly increased in difficulty if not impassable. We also hit a time where there were no ranger activities as well as no boat tours out to Wizard Island. I would suggest checking in advance to make sure all these things are happening.

WARNING : If the snow is starting to melt in the area, DON'T GO TO CRATER LAKE!!! The mosquitos were absolutely unbearable around the campground and in the lower parts of the park. (This has nothing to do with the campground itself)

We stayed in the camping cabins, which are a single building with 4 units per building. We stayed when there was snow on the ground, so I can't comment on the grounds and avalibility of outdoor benches or activity when there isn't 6 feet of snow on the ground, but it seemed clean. They're clean and decent cabins, nothing wrong with them, but they are really nothing spectacular. They are definitely overpriced.

While the price ($143) seems out of line for these very basic accomodations, the options are few and far between if you want to stay in the Crater Lake Natioanl Park, And yes, it is an amazing location so the cabins and lodge are always sold out. We were luckily able to get one room (we had 2) changed to the Lodge at the last moment so this made our overall experience better. The Mazaza Motor Inn or Cabins are OK. Our room had one window, with winter shutters still bolted close for the winter; thus, it was very dark and dready in our room. Seems as though these shutters could have been opened for our late June stay. You must be prepared for no TV, phone or internet access.

There were no rooms available at the lodge when I booked this trip, so I reserved a cabin. How bad could it be? I do not expect frills at the Nat'l Parks, but for $129 I do expect cleanliness. The carpeting and furniture were stained and I was hesitant to even sleep in the bed. The following morning we found out there was a room available at the lodge, so we checked out of the cabin as fast as we could and moved to the lodge. What a difference!

Room Tip: Stay at the lodge.

The dead bolt on our room would not work. The room was very basic but with two beds large enough to acommodate 2 adults and 2 children if necessary. If you need ice you have to buy it in the store. Price seemed high but other option for staying in the park was a lot more expensive. Each building has 4 rooms in it and you can hear your neighbors.

Okay, you want to stay near the lake? Then you have to pay extra. It's that simple. The Mazama village is some sort of motel. 4 cabins are located at one plot. The rooms are clean, no thrills, no tv. There's a all you can eat buffet restaurant nearby.

We stayed there for one night, and it was fine. It was cold, rainy foggy and we were glad to have a roof above our heads. The lodge at the border of the lake is probably nicer, but also more expensive.

Compared to other lodging, the Mazama Village is overpriced (but that's always the case in the National Parks). But the location is convenient, and the rooms are decent enough.

Just the basics but very nice...we came after the 4th and discovered that mosquitos along with other bugs fill the air so the migratory birds have a feast. Great otherwise.
