We stayed 3 nights labor day weekend - Thurs, Friday and Sat night. We got there and it was pretty, empty, and had a clean and beautiful lake. We were in the back of the loop near the bathroom. It was on the inside of the loop but VERY spacious. Alot of room for the kids and dogs. Plenty of swim areas do where you aren't surrounded by other people. Easy access for kayaking. And a very nice walking trail (paved for wheelchairs). However Friday and Saturday night were not so nice. Friday filled up fast, and our neighbors were obnoxious. Kids running rampant screaming and yelling all hours of the night. Their dogs were not tied off and came into our camp with our kids and dogs MULPITLE times. The adults were drinking from morning to night and puking in the bushes. They were loud and had music on all night, waking my kids multiple times. The bathrooms were clean when we got there, but were never checked on the whole time we were there, and with a bunch of drunk neighbors they got dirty fast. The host did nothing even after multiple complaints from 3 different camp sites. Due to this experience we won't be back. Which is sad because it really is a beautiful lake. It's hard to enjoy yourself with no sleep. NO ELECTRIC OR WATER ON SITES. DRY CAMPING ONLY There are water spigots you can walk to for water. Make sure to bring what you need, no shop on site. And a bit of a drive to the closest gas station/store. Great for swimming, kayaking, canoeing, walking and fishing. You can also ride a bike around camp, but not on the lake trail. Super dog friendly, but please keep your dogs on a leash, especially if they wonder off! - AshleyS

This is a small but very nice campground on Juanita Lake. It is a forest service campground with a CG host who's extremely nice and takes care of unruly or overly loud people quickly. There is a day use area also. You can fish in the lake,you can swim. No motor boats allowed but you can raft or canoe. We have a 36 ft MH and only found 3 spots we could fit. The spaces are shaded and nicely spaced apart. There is wildlife in the area. We saw an bald eagle while we were there. There is a short distance of gravel road but its doable and the road narrows in spots but going slow you have no problem. We will go back. - d peterson

Small rustic CG, felt like being in a park. Gravel with lots of grass. All hookups worked. Dorris very rural, small town. Very nice elderly owner. They are trying to sell. No problem letting our dog off leash to play ball and exercise as we were the only ones there besides a few permanents that were at end of park. Worked well for one night of travel. - J&C

A wonderful and clean park with level sites. Owners very friendly and accommodating. It is older and small but clean and everything works. We will return - Fhunt

Nice grassy park. Small and a bit older but everything still works. Nice folks own the place and live on site. Convenient to Tule Lake National Wildlife Refuge. - idiot4cricket

If you are visiting nearby Lava Beds National Monument this is the place for you. This area is a hidden gem. Medicine Lake is a beautiful alpine lake in the caldera of a huge shield volcano at 6,700 feet. There is first come, first serve lakeside camping in four national forest campgrounds with no hookups, showers or frills. What you do get is lakeside camping, utter quiet, great fishing, a nice swimming beach and lots of hiking right from your spot. There are four campgrounds along the lake: Hemlock, some nice sights, but better for tents than RV's. A.H. Houge, great lakeside spots with plenty of good RV spots. This is where we stayed. Medicine, similar and next door to A.H. Hogue Headquarters, smaller CG and at end of lake away from swimming. The drive to Lava Beds is 15 miles on a good National Forest road. The first part is paved one lane with turnouts and is very good, then you will hit an unpaved section for several miles, but it is in great shape, then the last few miles are paved but you do have to play dodge-em-pothole. Lava Beds is worth it. It is home to 21 easily accessible lava tube caves and some great Modoc War history. Combine some fabulous alpine camping in an amazing spot with some exploration of this unappreciated area. If you are heading from Lassen NP to Crater Lake and Bend this is a great place to stay. - tiptoe tommy

Our rate reflects the 50% national park pass discount. The B loop seemed to have bigger spaces, many of which are a bump out off to the side of the road. So if you don't get one on the right side of the road, your door will open to the road. Or you can drive the wrong way down the road to get the door opening off the road (as we did) and hope you can pull out without meeting any cars. All the roads are asphalt, but the rest of the site is pretty much dirt. Lots of small trees and shrubs for shade, and the sites are nicely spaced. The bathrooms were clean and well maintained. We had good cell coverage and actually had TV on the antenna. - ALbums

I could spend a week here , so much to see & do! Rangers were very friendly & helpful.
Good Verizon cell serivce , not for big rigs , tents on the A loop & everyone else on the B loop I think.
It's dry camping but in the junipers on a mountain with a view. Clean quiet enjoyable , I will return on any trip to Reno or not! - packardrob

Stayed here a few weeks ago. if you are spending a few days in the park, it's the place to camp (Tule lake is a good 30 minute drive away). As another reviewer pointed out, the sites are a little awkward but everyone makes it work without hassle. We stayed in kind of a curbside spot which was fine for our trailer and we could still pull our vehicle up to the side. There were also back in and pull through sites - several sites for sure were really only suitable for tent camping. Restrooms were really clean. There were lots of flies, so beware. The rating takes into account the location - the caves are really neat to check out, you can access several without being in super great shape (we did it with our kids). We also hiked the cinder cone with the fire lookout tower - the ranger up there was really nice! If you have kids, be sure to do junior ranger program! - chit_chat
