“Big trees and a lovely lake”
Reviewed Jul 09, 2015
Towering old Douglas-firs and Engelman spruce dominate this lush campground where the spaciousness of the sites is second only to the crisp bite of the water on these, as of late, hot Oregon summer days.
Waterfront sites provide instant access for kayaking or just taking a dip, skin or otherwise (legalities aside). We strung hammocks and roasted marshmallows and walked beneath the bows, one tree in particular was amazing, a hemlock and a Doug-fir had grown together to create a massive slingshot base.
The driving and hiking is great for miles and miles, and Diamond Peak and Redtop are visible from the campground's waterfront sites.
Nearby Crescent Junction is a small town with a general store that'll do you right when it comes to good beers and fishing line.
Do us all a favor and pick up some trash, this was one of the slightly more garbage ridden places we've been to in Oregon.
