30 RV Parks near Crescent Lake, Oregon
Jul 2018 - $18.00
It's been a few years since we've been back to Crescent Lake. A few things have changed for the good or for the bad depending on how you look at it. They now take reservations for some of the sites, this is good for those that know it and take advantage of it. If you were like us and didn't know it far in advance you found the campground nearly full now. Overall its good thing but the quiet campground is not bustling and busy. We stayed 3 nights, in two different sites. The campground host was great in helping us out. We arrived a day before our reservation and stayed an extra night. Sites are $18 but the reservation fee can tack another $10 on to it. Unlike a past visit we didn't have issues with drunk out of control campers. Just typical USFS issues, music, generators and kids running through our sites. This year for some reason the were NO mosquitoes, which was a very welcome change. The lake was high so that might have something to do with it. Not much improved as far as facilities, but hasn't fallen into disrepair. Hopefully with the ability to take reservations the money will allow for some updates. - Y-Guy

This is a standard USFS campground that is managed by Hoodoo. Located right on Crescent Lake many sites have wonderful views and direct access to the lake. There is a good boat launch at the campground, water and pit toilets. Hosts keep things clean, but don't do much else. This is a scenic and wonderful campground, Crescent Lake is a great fishing and water sports lake. Be aware that drunk, loud or rowdy campers go unchecked as there is little if any law enforcement or Forest Service rangers available to deal with the problem. We've experienced this problem over a 3 year period now. We were able to launch our boat with our 35' motorhome just fine but would be tough with anything much larger I think. - Y-Guy
May 2019 - $60.00
We came to stay with a group this year. The base cost of $60 per night does NOT include your kids. They are an additional $10 per night (each). I would say that 90% of folks here come to fish, etc. We chose to hike / bike, etc. There are some nicer sites, but we were stuck way in the back on a very uneven site. While our trailer was level, the picnic table and fire ring area were on a slope. While the staff was very friendly, I don't feel that $80 for a family of 4 is a good value, especially without full hook ups. Has back in dump station for $20 fee. The Forest Service campground next door is $16 per night and will see our shadows the next time around. - DrKlaun

This campground does not have 'resort' facilities. The RV sites include good quality 30 amp electric. A long hose mounted on trees, will reach all sites. Pump out at your site is available weekly at a cost of $20. There is also a charge for the RV dump for 'guests'. The access road from Hwy 58 is 'rough' and narrow is places. The reason we and so many others go there is for the fishing. If you tow a boat, they will launch and retrieve it for you at no cost and if available, you can rent dock space. We go every year and enjoy it. - Rimdel

We had an outstanding experience during a four day stay in mid-October. Sited among tall conifers on the shore of Lake Odell one has the sensation of having the Pacific Northwest to oneself. It was rainy, cool, and breezy which did nothing to dampen our spirits.
Given the time of year the resort was not crowded so we had the run of the place. One can hike the Pacific Crest Trail or any of the other numerous trails found nearby. There's fishing which is accessible by rented boat, off the docks, or shoreline. Licenses and gear available on site.
All staff members were dedicated to making sure we had everything available to enjoy our stay. One rainy day, there was chicken-dumpling soup free to anyone from a large pot on the counter. Free chocolate chip cookies at check-in.
Campsites are varied. Most have 30 amp service. Few are positioned to receive satellite TV. WiFi is available - nearer the office the better. Verizon cell service was good. Our MiFi hotspot worked well.
No sewer or water hookups at the sites but there is a dump station and a number of hose bibs scattered throughout the park from which ones water tank can be filled. A holding tank dump service is reportedly available once per week though we did not use it.
Some of the sites are not very level and/or have tree limbs in the way of larger RV's. We did not have trouble finding an excellent site.
The park has recently changed hands and the new owner, Highway West Vacations, is sprucing things up. There are some very cozy cabins, good laundry, and sparkling pay showers available.
We had a great time and will be back. - CoCoDnC

Very responsive owners. They are on-site and care a lot about their park, which is evident. Cleanest washers and dryers I have seen at an RV park in a long time. Larger than average spaces with grass in between. The newer section (water and electric only for now) does not have grass yet, but the older section does. Nice trees but not in the way of pulling in or out. Feels like a campground but with modern amenities. - 2020vision

Stayed one night on July 3, 2019; we stopped at two other parks but they were sold out. We were very pleased with this park; lovely forest setting. Very spacious sites with lots of places to walk. Only negative was lots and lots of mosquitoes. Would love to stay here again if given the opportunity. - ctravelgal01

Nice owner showed us to our spot. Big tall Ponderosa pines spread through property. Miles of forest road to ride bikes, motorcycles or walk on in park. Has cable TV with some good stations. Some didn’t work all the time which was a direct TV issue. We used our own Verizon Jetpack and could stream TV work and so on. They have limited daily use of WiFi because they don’t offer unlimited in the area. Very clean park. No road noise even thought it’s not far from 96. La Pine has a couple of grocery stores and a dollar store too. - DarcysOnTheGO
