Overall Rating

Haystack Campground is an average campground. Our site, number 2, was on the upper level which did have a nice view of Mt. Jefferson. The spacing is generous between most sites. Our site had one relatively close neighbor. Site 2 is the best site on the upper level. Other upper level sites do not have a good view of the mountains. There were two nice sites on the lower level by the lake. Site 23 is a pull-through that is very private with a great view of Mt. Jefferson and the lake. This is the best site in the campground. Site 17 is also a nice pull-through by the water.

We like to have hiking trails nearby when we camp. Haystack didn't have hiking trails. There wasn't even a trail around the lake. The campground is located in the Crooked River National Grassland, but there was a barbed wire fence just off the road in the campground. We didn't know if it was public or private land on the other side of the fence.

This is not the most quiet campground that we have stay at, but not excessively noisy either. There is a farm nearby, so you may hear cows. The cows were a nice sound. If motor noises bother you, there are motorboats on the lake and there is a train track close enough to hear the train horn, but not the train engine.

This campground is best suited for folks who want to take their boat on the lake or go fishing.

Our Verizon cell signal was mostly 1X with and occasional 4G connection. We did get a consistent 4G connection with our amplifier and external antenna.
