The Good: quiet and inexpensive The Bad: no dump station or convenient water This is a typical NPS-like campground, a bit off the main road, but a good halfway stop between Lassen and Crater Lake, and an interesting place to visit in its own right. Desert-like climate, but cool at night (we were here in August). Very pretty. We had a beautiful sunset in August. Scattered trees and desert scrub brush. Slightly below average on services. If you like quiet, beautiful campgrounds, bring your own water, and don't care about electricity, this place is for you. Verizon: Good. 2 bars LTE, download 12.6, upload 11.8, ping 61, good enough for streaming, but slow with downloading large files Pricing: $10 with discount Roads To: asphalt, a bit narrow, but navigable Interior Roads: good quality asphalt, room to turn Parking pad: most seem flat and level, not terribly long; rigs over 30' might have difficulty finding a good site. Many sites are pull-through or parallel parking on the side of the road. Water: spigots scattered throughout the campground, but unthreaded and too far from the road for convenient RV use. No dump station or sewer hookups Bath/Showers: Clean bathrooms, with cement floors and flush toilets. No showers Campground was about half full in mid-week, but the camp host said that some days it fills up to capacity or near capacity. - OlderGoat

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

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

I have stayed here numerous times in the past, 20 years ago. Then this RV park was a great place. Now, unfortunately the owners simply are not putting any time into it. Sewer connections are plugged beyond hope so be sure the site you pick will drain. Women's restroom was so dirty my wife refused to use the shower. Men's side was a little better. Dump station, which we had to use since our site's sewer connection was clogged, was good but the hose connection for rinsing was out of service. We had to stretch our own hose from a nearby faucet to rinse things off. The park is used by Waterfowl hunters, most of which are friendly but be aware they leave for their hunting grounds very early in the morning. They also have a very nice "picking" room for the hunters that is usually kept clean, unfortunately when we visited it was disgustingly a mess. To bad, this was once a great park. - Tahoe1840

This is your basic fairgrounds type park. A straight line of spaces on each side of a gravel road. It is quiet, well maintained, self pay, with good power and water. Good for the night or a few days exploring this area. - Johnny xxxxx

Butte Valley Fairgrounds is open all year and has 20+ full-hook-up sites. CG sites are all back-in. Parking pads are all set on a long stretch of heavily-watered lawn. Spacing between sites is adequate. There are no trees or bushes for privacy or shade. Impressions: Nice, safe, quite CG to spend a night or two when visiting the area. However, expect that the lush, grassy, CG parking pads may be squishy, muddy, and rutted from constant watering. In addition, expect the CG will be alive with mosquitoes - possibly the result of over watering the CG's lawns and/or its proximity to a network of agricultural canals. We enjoyed our 2-night stay. CG was 90% empty. CG with $18 per/night full-serviced sites is hard to beat. - Kona Boy

We have stayed in this campground twice before & have really enjoyed the area. This year we camped one night & in the a.m. a park staff member knocked on our door & said we had to move our trailer so they could mow & water the grass because the fair is coming up. The staff member waited on the mower while we packed up which seemed very rude. The fair is over 3 weeks away. The fair customers are apparently more important than other customers.Onsite restrooms were locked during our stay. - A A

Great Park to stay in! Small town Gem. Stayed there 9 months in a back in spot with small grass area and shed. Managers are amazing and we have yet to find ones like them again. Everyone keeps to themselves but are friendly and willing to help if needed. Clean restrooms and laundry facilities. Nothing fancy but everything you need. Good WiFi and grounds are kept clean. - Valdivias

New Management has allowed what was a good stop over park to decay into a "trailer park". The park is filled with long term down and outers, it's really not a good place to camp. - Jose2

This is not a fancy park, the owners were just outstanding, we had a problem with our RV ( be very careful driving the 101 N to Tillamook as they have some hidden road issues that will LAUNCH YOUR RV Airborne) They had ODOT on the phone and they wanted to know the location, later we received a call from the State Trooper also wanting to know the location, we were not the only ones to have problems, thank you, they went out of their way, The park was very clean and quite, great water pressure will stay their again. - tazman1953

The owners of this place take customer service and care to a whole new level. We parked there for three weeks and there was no concern or request that hasn't been addressed. We extremely enjoyed staying there and getting to know this cute tiny town, local people and the owners. Note: this is not an RV park per se, but a motel with a few RV hook ups so you won't have showers or laundry facilities. We easily managed though as we used our shower and took the laundry to the laundromat just a block away. There is a very cozy courtyard and a recreation room with full kitchen and lounge area, TV, DVDs and magazines and a bathroom attached. The sites are gravel and pretty level, the water pressure was awesome and the quality of water as well, we even used it for drinking (very unusual for us!) Very short walk to groceries, restaurants, post office, hardware store, library and a coffee booth. The place is extremely well managed and taken care of, clean, quiet and safe. Will definitely stay there again when in the area!!! - Freedomlovers

If you are looking for a clean, safe and quiet overnight spot for your rv then you will be happy. This place is nothing fancy, just basic but the 50amp worked great as did the water and sewer. Not a destination but a great place for a stop for the night. - Candy pop

This is a lovely spot next to a small lake in a very quiet 55+ community (RV sites on the opposite side of the lake). Staff couldn't have been nicer. Only drawbacks were 1) they charge $20/night extra for 50 amp, which we couldn't use anyway because 2) the sites are not very conducive to trailers/5th wheels. Hookups were at the rear or on the wrong side (and we made our reservations several weeks in advance for mid-week during the first week of May). We had to back up almost to the pedestal, add our 50-to-30 amp extension, get very close to the neighbor, and block his view of the lake. It was fine for an overnight stay. No sewer hookups or dump station - there's a honey wagon that visits on certain days or the fairgrounds down the road. Good cell service and over-the-air TV. - Keeping up with the Joneses

The rate is based on the weekly rate. As mentioned in other reviews, it is mostly an RV park with park model homes. The few sites for rent are on gravel, fairly level and shaded. Along with the trees come lots of birds... It is very quiet. There is no wifi or cable but you get several channels with just your antenna. It has a sign that indicates it's a 55+ park but that may just be for the residents. No extras but not a bad deal. The owner is extremely nice. She only accepts cash. - Susan C.

This small park, with most of its sites occupied by permanent residents, is located in an agricultural area adjacent to a sizeable pond. It’s very quiet, but expect a high population of insects. Only a few sites have a sewer connection. Instead, the owner pumps directly from your unit to a portable tank once a week. The resident owners are very friendly and always willing to assist visitors, a factor that overcomes many of the shortcomings of the park. There is an excellent selection of cable channels, and a dedicated wash area for vehicles. Brushes and hoses are supplied here in the event that you don’t have them. I didn’t use Wi-Fi due to a strong Verizon signal available here. I’d suggest calling in advance to determine site availability as there are very few available. - GreenMtn08
