We enjoyed two, two-week stays here. The first week, we scored a 50-amp site our second morning by chit-chatting with neighbors who were preparing to leave. It was on the bottom of the A row, right off the main campground road, which was extremely dusty because most people drive too fast. We like our next spot up by the yurts MUCH better. Antenna TV worked okay, with four PBS stations. Verizon was weak, but okay. They really need to trim and/or remove a few more trees. By all the scarring and sap present, it’s obvious which trees need attention. There was no way to avoid some limbs at the site and the lower dump, where work is also needed on obstacles and puddle points. Otherwise, it’s a nice, quiet and mostly clean park. No recycle bins provided. - Stu-and-Alicia

We stayed here 5 years ago, and were disappointed to see how things have gone downhill here since then. The resort looks "tired".....things need repainting, and repair. We are pickleball players, and were sad to see that the courts here are in disrepair. Out of 8 courts, only 3 or 4 are usable. We were lucky to be able to snag a 50 amp site, and the utilities work well. The dump stations are a bit rough looking. Disappointing. - henny38

We are Thousand Trails Family Courtesy Card holders, so actual rate of $0 is due to that. Not many 50A sites, and it was warm so we wanted 50A if we could get it. We were able to find a 50A site, and left a chair in the site along with our site tag, to reserve it while we went to dump... before we could get back (we drove by on the way to the dump), the chair had used its legs to walk away! Not a pleasant welcome! We went initially to the dump at the bottom of the campground - it had a sign indicating that you should only open your tank valve 1/2 way due to the septic being full... since we have automatic valves (no way to open half way) and since we could easily see that the pipe had liquid right near the top, we decided to try the other dump station. The one at the top of the hill has ability for two rigs to dump at the same time, and had no issue taking on our nearly full tanks. We were in a site that backed up to the meadow - evidently prized by those who want good view with satellite dishes. It appeared that nearly all the sites in this campground could easily accommodate very large rigs. Laundry was relatively clean and easy to use. No sewer sites in this campground, though one of the seasonal guests in the campground told me that they are in the process of putting sewer into all of the sites, and that it may be available by 2019. - pattic777

Owner has lived on site since August 2012. Sites not possible to level. Showers dirty. Bathrooms filthy. Laundry room very dirty and disorganized, looks more like a storage area. No garbage disposal, must take away your own garbage. Small store available on site. Bought a 6-pack of beer and all lids rusty from previous spill. Free WiFi works close to the front office. Stayed here in a motorhome. Will not be returning. - fd536

This is one unique place: new owner lives on property and runs a very small store. Sites are grass and not possible to level, no TV hook ups and no satellite connections could be made. Phone service only at land line in store. This appears to be more of a hunting camp type of operation as there is a bow and arrow range. An interesting spot for a stop over for the not faint of heart. - Tahoetom

This park has a lot of character, starting with its management...Good People. The park has been in business since 1950 and is both well-established and well-kept. It's on State Highway 31, the scenic outback shortcut from I-97 to I-395 between Bend & Reno, right on the edge of the Fremont & Winema Forests, overlooking the high desert Fort Rock Valley. I stayed only for one night and enjoyed a good clean hot shower. There's a store with the usual amenities and some pleasant surprises. There is a performance stage on the premises and during the spring/summer season they host a series of music and art festivals. It's also a popular hunting base camp during deer season. - arbortender

We stayed in Little Fawn campground within the Paulina Lake area. A little down the road from Paulina Lake Campground. A smaller campground with sites right on the water. Boat ramp available. it is beautiful and was quiet this time of year. Easiest to get a site out of season. - saturn7

Located in the Newberry National Volcanic Monument, Paulina Lake is the first campground within the caldera. The campground is located on Paulina Lake with a boat ramp available. The sites are located in the woods with ample space for setting up tents or campers. The facilities include flushing toilets and water throughout the campground. The facility does require a $10 fee for entering the National Monument. The site was level and wood was available. The park was beautiful with nice hikes around the Paulina and East Lake, on an Obsidian Lava Flow, and to the top of Paulina Peak. The night we stayed was cold (35 degrees), but the sky was clear and the stars beautiful. There are two small resorts with stores and restaurants in the monument and a small visitor center. - dmaerz

So I will say the staff is very friendly at the resort, the RV park. On the other hand, needs some attention. Very fine pumas, needs gravel or some sort of base - the sites are very dusty. We ended up leaving and not staying. Lots of unleashed dogs (we have two, so not dog haters). Sites were fairly close and very noisy, music, dogs barking and noisy kids (I have two so not kid haters), other camper's kids running through our site etc., so rules are not enforced. When we made the reservation, we did ask for a more private site and we were told they would accommodate with no problem. That was not the case. Normally I would not review if I didn't stay, but they did charge us for one night even though the lady told me that they refunded the entire amount. And it wasn't that we didn't spend any money there either - we rented a patio boat and paddle boards from them the next day that we had reserved, and made purchases in the store to the tune of $575.00. This was labor day weekend so might not be normal, but I won't be back to find out. We ended up dry camping down the road a bit in a National Forest campground that was very nice. - takk28

Stayed Memorial Day Weekend. Several feet of snow on the ground but sites and roads were clear. Most sites wooded and shaded. Power and water only, sewer dump station on site, free. Camp host was great! Very helpful. Walking distance to lake and resort. We will definitely return. Reservations only so call ahead. - Pbeh

We live in Bend, Oregon and decided to try East Lake for a few nights of local camping. First of all the road off Highway 97 to the RV Park is two lane, paved and very nice.
We travel in a 36 foot motorhome and did not take our tow car with us.
we opted for an "interior" site pull thru, we stayed in Site #40 it was on the end. The campground is laid out very nicely, the middle sites are pull thru the others are back-in. We had 50 amp and water hook up there is a dump station as you leave.
Our site was very large, clean, fire ring and picnic table. The campground is maintained so well and the campground host is on site and very helpful and friendly.
We camped five days here, four nights and it was great. We were able to walk across the road to the resort and East Lake. The area is breathtaking and you will no lack things to do or see.
Big rigs would fit into the interior sites of this campground, in fact the host told us they had a 46 foot RV stay there and had room.
There is NO wifi and there is no cell service at all. This was not a problem for us but if this is a must for you this campground would not work.
We enjoyed the campground and the nightly camp fires and will stay here again. We travel a great deal and have stayed at a lot of campgrounds etc, this is a very very nice one.
We booked our reservations on line and then had something come up so we called and talked to the owner and moved our dates and they were very nice and helpful about it.
There on line site for East Lake Resort will give you a map of the campground so you can see what the sites are and their location. Suggest bigger rigs select site in pull thru's. - OregonGirl

Typical small NFS campground. Great camp host. Very quiet except for the occasional train. Some pull though sites. Lots of space between sites. We would have been able to get into half of them at 43'. The trees could use trimming. Pit toilets. Good dog walking in the surrounding woods. Nice stream in the meadow next to the camp sites to play in or just enjoy. Drought made sites and roads quite dusty. Good water available, but no threads on spigots to attach a hose so fill up before arriving. - bobcovey

Clean RV park, things were in good condition and worked fine, even the wifi. Spaces and turns were tight in a 43' DP motorhome, but we did it! Our site was gravel and pretty level. The park is central to lots of fun things to do, whether one wants to hike, fish, ride, do the ale trail, etc. - Stu-and-Alicia

Spaces are too tight, can't open our compartment doors due to the neighbor's car parked so close. Have to keep our windows closed because of neighbors smoking - dd2some

Small park right off 97 HWY. Asphalt drive with rock sites. Sites are fairly level. Easy to get around in with 43' 5th wheel. You do have road noise and trains. Convenient location to several parks including Crater Lake. Sites were very close together. - KSTraveler

What everyone else has stated is true -- we really liked this campground. The manager (owner?) was very nice and helpful. There was lots of space between sites and the lawn and trees were beautiful. It was quiet and peaceful. We were parked near the office and I had no problem with the Wi-Fi at all. If we are back in the area I know we will stay there again! We used our own bathroom so didn't use theirs, but looked inside and they were clean and roomy, albeit old. - PortiaN

There are two sections to the Riverview Trailer Park. The first section is a trailer park which is kept very well. The second section is the RV park. There are mostly long term residents at the campground. The grounds have plenty of grass and it is obvious that the owners take great pride in their establishment. The interior road and sites are gravel. The widths of the sites are a little narrow, but there should not be a problem getting into them. Some sites are more level then others. There is a picnic table at each site but no BBQ stand. All sites have FHU with 30/50 amp electricity. The bathroom and showers were a little dated but very clean. There are two washers and two dryers and are reasonable priced. Wi-Fi is available, but the signal was weak at our site (we did not use it). Verizon air card and cell phone worked well. Cable TV is also available. Your GPS will probably tell you to take Doe Lane from Burgess Road. Doe Lane is a dirt road. A better route would be to continue on Burgess Road to the traffic light. Turn right onto South Huntington road. The RV park will be on your left. We would come back here again if we were in the area. - adsaxs

We found this little park after checking into another park in town that we considered unacceptable for more than one night. We are happy that the first one was so bad as to force us to look elsewhere, because this one is a jewel. We are almost reluctant to praise it for fear that there will not be room when we return. Nothing fancy, just large, flat, shady sites with good hookups including free Wi-Fi and cable TV. Cash or checks only. - 2005-Fulltimers

We loved this park. Very nice and accommodating owner and manager. Clean, quiet park and the location is in the middle of all the local attractions. Sites are very close, gravel and offers a picnic table. We would stay here again. - Hihohihooffwego

First this park has a website which contains a map and photos. The park is NOT like the on-line photos. The grass is all dead and the park is not maintained at all. Do not be fooled! Specific problems are:
No staff at park. When you arrive you must call number posted and eventually a "manager" will arrive. No staff on duty to address issues.
Spaces so narrow that they will not fit large double slide outs.
Very unfriendly staff and owner who refuses to resolve problems (read below for details.)
Unsecured credit card information! Your credit card number is written on post-it style note with your information and arrival date, paper-clipped and at desk for anyone to take or possibly see. (Office is locked as no one is there, but when you do enter with staff it is there.)
Park is mostly full-time "greatly discounted" monthly guests. This park is NOT geared to weekend travelers.
SHARED space outside your RV door. Yes that is correct. You must share your table space with your neighbor.
No room to walk dog or grass area for dogs to do their "business" in. Again see photo. If you want dead grass area, you must walk your dog directly next to someone else RV.
Park is in LOW INCOME trashy residential area. As in run down single wide mobile home and cars which do not run on other side of RV park fence.
Also rather weird is only one phone number is posted by the telephone... The Deschutes Sheriff's Department. (Not like in case of emergency, but like trouble is expected it seems... wow!)
I had to leave. My RV would not fit in the spot I had left. Park refused to refund. Feels like you are in the ghetto.
I strongly recommend holiday travelers to avoid this park. The State Park is just a few miles up the road. But if you want a "budget minded" property with no supervision, then this is your place. - Oregon_Adventure

I rarely plan a campground like this, but these folks don't "get" hospitality. As a full timer, from time to time I need packages delivered. I inquired about how to address a package so I could receive it when I arrived, I was told "we don't accept ANY packages". Ok... then I don't stay there, give you my money, or a recommendation. Period. I had expected this to be a satisfactory park. They are a Passport America park and one always appreciates the opportunity to save money. They are also in a good location (but other parks are as well.)
Expect an open meadow and dusty roads - especially if it hasn't rained in a few days. It does get below freezing at night so be prepared with water and to use your furnace. - alansills

We have been here 3 years before, wow they cleaned up the place! It used to be a kind of dump but not anymore. Did not use the showers but it looks old. Huge pull thrus and big sites, you are parked on the grass or what is left after a hot summer. So dusty roads. Most of the guest drive very slowly, read most! Yes it is a big meadow and yes there is highway noise but it is situated close to everything to see here: that is a lot! End of September and the pool was still open and warm, the hottub working. You can get a free firepit (deposit). The new management is doing a great job. We will be back for sure. - Traveller Excel
