Camping

Within Crater Lake National Park, there are only two campgrounds, one large and one small. No reservations are taken.

Mazama Village Campground ($21 per tent, $27-$29 per RV per night) has 213 sites, some of which are available by reservation (www.craterlakelodges.com; tel. 888/774-2728). A few sites have electric hookups, but most have no hookups. There is drinking water, a dump station, restrooms with showers, a coin-op laundry, a public phone, and fire pits. It's at Mazama Village off Ore. 62. There is also a general store and an adjacent post office. It's usually open from mid-June to early October.

First-come, first-served Lost Creek Campground ($10 per night) has 16 sites for tents only. There is running water and flush toilets; each site has a fire ring, picnic table, and bear-proof food locker. It is in the southeastern section of the park, on the spur road to The Pinnacles. It's usually open from early July to early October.

Near the Park

Because the park is so isolated, the range of accommodations options in the small surrounding communities is limited.
