“Old campground with mature trees and a lake- but electrical problems galore!”

Reviewed Jul 31, 2018

Overall Rating

We found this campground to be beautiful in that the lake was nice and the trees and greenery were plentiful. The fishing in the local streams, creeks, rivers was amazing. The sites were pretty close together- but I imagine when this campground was built no one had slide outs and huge rigs. We chose this campground because after tr... more

“Another Gorgeous Oregon State Park!!”

Reviewed Jun 12, 2018

Overall Rating

What can I say, this is simply another amazingly beautiful Oregon State Park. Our site backed up to the lake with awesome views. We only stayed one night but wish we had planned a longer stay. There were ducks and a few pair of Canadian Geese with about a dozen chicks. They walked right up to us in our site grazing on the grass. Pho... more

“Huge campground”

Reviewed Jul 04, 2016

Overall Rating

This is a huge campground, with over 300 sites. And no dump station. What's that about? I know some of the sites have sewer, and maybe the goal is to push folks toward those more expensive sites, but it seems irresponsible to have so many campsites without a dump station. Our campsite was on the water...or at least with nothing bet... more

“Would be a little better if Mt. Jefferson could be seen from spot G43”

Overall Rating

I'd been eyeing this lake up for years. Every time we'd migrate from the coast to the eastern Cascades we'd driven by, but it was never actually on the agenda. It was big and beautiful from the road, crossing the bridge that separates the state park from the quaint mountain town of Detroit the vista opened up, the valley parted and... more
