We booked a site by phone after checking the camp ground layout on their internet site. We wanted a site by the river but there were none available. So we chose a site near a creek because we wanted very much to be by some water during the hot summer days. When we arrived it turned out that the creek has been dry for a number of years and no one had bothered to change the campground map by erasing the blue colored creek flowing by the sites. We felt that we had been misled. In general the place is very clean and well maintained. However the Wi-Fi was very weak. We stayed for 4 nights. On the last day the manager did make an effort and moved us to a riverside site, which was very nice.
This is a very nice resort. Our site had river access, our own private beach. This is the place to be if you are into water activities: boating, jet ski, etc. The staff was friendly and helpful. Restrooms and showers were clean. The only problem was that there is no check in before 3:00 PM. The reason for this, is that they want to water the grass in the sites before the new occupant arrives. There are discounts for the military and police.
This is a well maintained park. It is definitely fishing orientated. There are a number of fishing piers into the river. The sites are level but a little narrow. The manager and staff are friendly and helpful. If there were public restrooms and showers we could not find them. The only problem was the wind. This must be a permanent problem since there are many wind turbines across the river.
If we could award more than 10 points, we would. This is the ultimate RV park. The sites are wide and level. They are secluded from each other by shrubs. Most have access to the Sacramento river. The park is clean and well maintained. All the public facilities are of a high standard. The staff is friendly and helpful. This park is off the I-5 freeway but we could not hear any traffic noise at our site. The rate for a river front site was $40 by credit card or $37 cash.
This is the place to stay during your visit to Crater Lake, if you need an RV camp with full hook ups. The sites are level and large. There is a concrete pad for the picnic table in each site. The place is well maintained and you are escorted to your site. However, there is a problem with mosquitoes. They are large, numerous and aggressive, even though the campground is not on the lake. There is also a problem with the numerous chipmunks. They are aggressive and some times climb up on the table and take food. The staff are friendly and helpful. The restrooms and showers are clean.
This place was a major disappointment. We booked a site by the lake but when we arrived at our site we found the it to be a narrow strip of dirt between the paved road and the bank of the lake. There was a broken picnic table there which took up most of the space between our RV (parked just off the road) and lake. Soon we found out that we were not by the lake but by a marsh of stagnant water near a bay of the lake. The mosquitoes were large numerous and aggressive. We could not sit outside, not by day or night. When we complained the manager told us that they could do nothing about the mosquitoes. (Never heard of spraying?) We wanted to leave but they would not refund our payment. We were moved to a site which was not by the lake and the mosquitoes were fewer but we still could not sit outside the RV. This place (resort?) is about 100 years old. It is not well maintained. Mostly people come to launch their boats and fish. There were open garbage dumpsters which were over filled. I was told that they would be emptied only once a week, in a few more days. The only positive thing that I can write is that the restaurant is very nice. You get a beautiful panorama of the bay and that marshes. The food is good and not too pricey.
The sites were narrow and not level. I felt like we were in a parking lot, not an RV park. The internet at the office was very good. No sewer hook ups, only water and electricity. The access to the lake was nice and easy. Shower and toilet were clean. The people at the office were friendly and helpful.
This place was a disappointment. We paid $40 per night for just water and electricity. They also wanted additional $5 per night for our towed car! Since this just did not make sense, I asked at the main office and they canceled this charge. However they did not cancel the charge of $3 per dump, for use of the dump station. This was the only time in all our stays at RV parks in the west that we were asked to pay extra for the dump station. The sites and the roads were unpaved, just dirt. We had dust all day long with every vehicle that drove through. This caused our A/C to malfunction and we had to service the filter. This resort includes some cabins and a beach. But if one wants to drive over to the beach you have to pay for parking, even if you are a guest at their campground. The only positive point was the location, very near to both the town canter and the Lake Tahoe attractions.
