With a scenic river to float on, a jumping pillow for the kids, and new bathhouses, this park is a diamond in the rough, but as of now, very rough. Serious infrastructure issues: insufficient electric service and water supply caused entire campground to go hours with no water and only sporadic, limited electricity at a full hookup site. Pool was filthy throughout our stay. Lots of mosquitos: almost too annoying to sit outside even in midday. In 5 years of camping, we've never left a park a day early: until this one.
We were so pleased to find such a high quality park close to Portland. All the sites are on concrete pads; all the roads are paved and the landscaping is lovely. Sites are side-by-side with little privacy. The office staff was extremely friendly and helpful with local tourist and transit info. Our kids enjoyed the ice-cream social and pool. We would definitely stay again.
A wonderful campground, and wonderful location for touring the Oregon coast. Our site was large enough for our big rig, though somewhat tricky to back into (a reverse back-in). Once we got in, it was easy to level the coach and set up. The campground was very busy with children and families and our kids enjoyed the ranger programs, playground, and beach, which was a 1/4 mile walk from our site. We would definitely stay again!
Easy to find campground between Sequim and Port Angeles. Our kids had a great time here with all the activities and game room. There was also a pool which looked nice, though it was too cold during our stay to swim. Our site was a pull-through and plenty large for our rig. We had problems with the electrical hookup that the management was unable to resolve, and so we were restricted to 15 amps. Also, we were directly under a huge cottonwood tree that made a mess of our campsite. Office staff was aloof. The campground was certainly adequate.
The setting at Diamond Lake is magnificent and this park provided a good base for seeing Crater Lake NP. Our site was wooded and plenty large for our big rig, and as expected in such a wooded area, insects were abundant. Though there was a concrete pad, the area all around the pad was dirt rather than grass, which was difficult to keep from getting into everything. To be fair, this may be due in part to the dry conditions in late summer, but it was a real struggle to keep kids and property from getting caked with dust and dirt. Luckily, the park's laundry building was clean and all machines were in good working order. Office staff was courteous and provided helpful tourist info. Firewood sold on site was inexpensive, delivered to our site, and very dry. We would stay here again if visiting the area.
For a large rig, this campground is a great alternative to the state park campground across the road for seeing the Redwoods. Sites are large, clean and level and it was easy to pull in. Full hookup, reliable Wi-Fi, cable, and a outside phone jack. Grounds are well kept and bathrooms are clean. The receptionist that checked us in was extremely friendly and provided helpful local info. The only negatives were that there was little to no shade at our site and that there was no pool or playground for kids. Overall, you get more than your money's worth here - a good bet.
