Our property has been in business in one way or another for over 70 years. The stick built cabins are pre 1950's and no one really knows for sure how old they truly are. We are located on Fort Creek named after the creek that ran through Fort Klamath. Fort Creek is a beautiful 30' wide meandering creek that runs the length of the property north to south. We offer free use of our Old Town Canoes to paddle along it's extent and on up creek to a beaver damn. There is a fun hiking trail that runs over two bridges that span the creek, one covered and one floating. We also offer free catch and release fishing, there are Rainbow and Brown Trout in our waters. Fort Klamath is the birthplace and home of the US Army 1st Cavalry and our property is located on the the Forts Southeastern grounds. We are 9 miles from the southern border of the National Park and 23 miles from the southern Rim and Rim Village.

The campground was great, the camp store and all the amenities were very nice. The river going through camp was also beautiful. Matthew was a very communicative host.

Camping with creek behind my tent
I loved the tent spot at Matthew's land, it's a pretty camp site with cabin, tent site, RV site, more importantly it has a creek in. the water is clear, didn have much time to enjoy kayaking there, will definitely do it next time.

Overall we had a nice time and it was a great place to stay while seeing Crater Lake. Bathrooms were smaller and not as nice as we expected and parking was cramped. Nothing is in the store is priced.

Camping with kids? Try this one!
I loved the camp site! It was by the creek and when I went to sleep I could hear the water! So relaxing. The place area was super clean with fire wood in stock which was nice. The floating bridge was great. My son and I went on it and looked at all the ✨ I will definitely be coming back.

Perfect low-key campground with RV, tent, cabin, and glamping options. Located on one of the many small rivers that run through this part of the Klamath basin, they offer free use of their personal canoes. The well maintained lawns, aspen trees, and wild flowers add to the charm. They also have a small store that offers all the immediate necessities, such as beer, eggs, cheese, coffee, snacks, toiletres, etc. Along with a great selection of hats and momentoes for purchase. Over-all, a great place to avoid the busy crowds of the National Park without being too far away... highly recommend...

The campsite was wonderful right by a small stream. Check in and check out was seamless. Great location near Crater Lake National Park.

well maintained but pricey
the site is well maintained and in a convenient location, near both Klamath falls and Crater Lake. My main reason for a mediocre score is that it is quite expensive as a campsite.

Beautiful nature & perfect weather
This was the nicest tent camping site I’ve been to in a while. Although it’s pricier than most, it was worth every penny! Cleanest bathrooms and nicely kept grass areas. Crater resort camp site also provided games and an extra gas grill, pizza oven and relaxing fire pit areas by the pickle ball and playground as common areas. You do have your private pit and charcoal grill on your site though. I would rate this an 8 out of 10 overall experience only because most nearby parks , lakes and attractions were closed. Our visit was mid June 2022.

The staff was amazing. We had unkind neighbors at one point during our stay but it was handled well. The campground itself is beautiful. There’s a small part of the creek that runs through it. We enjoyed using their canoe. The sites are spacious and well kept. The laundry room made it easy to keep up on our laundry. The bathrooms and shower were kept very clean. I would recommend this resort to anyone even those of us who have children. There is a small swing set, corn hole, horse shoes and plenty of trees to string a hammock to. They offer Wi-Fi but we didn’t care to use it much. We were just enjoying the outdoors.

Warmer camping close to Crater Lake
Wonderful clean and friendly family campground. Lots of families, some three generations and dog friendly. Very helpful staff and pretty grounds. A band and food truck were brought on site on Saturday night. 20 minutes to Crater Lake National Park. I hope to return soon.

Awesome stay
This site was amazing! The facilities were super clean, staff was very friendly and helpful, great activities to do around the grounds including canoes and a little nature walk. Gorgeous creek by the campsite, wasn’t buggy at all. Bathrooms were very clean. I’d highly recommend!

A great spot near crater lake!
It was a nice little resort with a beautiful creek running behind it. The bathrooms were very clean and well maintained. I also had a lovely conversation with the woman who was working the store (which has everything you could need) while I was there! A wonderful find!

Lovely creek view
This tent site has a pretty view of a bend in the creek with wildflowers on each bank. It is well set up and scenic. The rest of the camp resort is actually small and close together. This is not a bad thing: it’s just good to know that you will be next to the glamping tents, the RVs, and the cabins. The bathrooms, shower, water fauce were accessible, clean. While the price was a little steep, I don’t have any complaints over our set up. 1 weird thing was that the wildfire smoke was so terrible when we were visiting that we had to leave a day early. However, the staff at the camp denied the smoke to two different folks who called in asking about it. It was troubling to hear the receptionist deny how bad the smoke was given that the valley is completely covered in it with AQIs near 200.

Couldn’t stay because we reserved a tent space for a camper van.

Great campsite for families with kids! Be sure to pack bug spray, they are vicious here! Convenient location, clean area & has canoeing for free. Had some trouble getting checked in. Reserved a camp site for 4 through Hipcamp and was told I only reserved it for 2. Despite showing the booking on my phone and the receipt where I paid $20 extra for the additional people they still wanted to charge me (without checking their hipcamp account on their computer). Really frustrating to be told I’m being charged extra but they cannot 1) look at my reservation in hipcamp 2) look at the amount I paid almost a month in advance for this spot. Person who checked me in did not seem to be having a great day. Overall, nice place but won’t be back.

Great family friendly site
Pricey for a tent site but a good location pretty close to Crater Lake. Great campsite right in the river. There are free showers, canoes, horseshoes and pickle ball. If you are looking for a great family friendly campsite this is a great one with a lot of amenities like a KOA. Don’t forget your bug spray the mosquitoes were relentless.

Family friendly
I loved how clean the grounds were, and there were plenty activities for families with younger children. We loved the free use canoes, the little creek was perfect for beginners. The camp store was well stocked. The restrooms were pretty luxe for a campsite. The only downside is it isn’t really that close to Crater Lake, it’s down from the mtn, so more of a field than a woodsy camp.

Sweet green camp site
This is a beaitiful tent site in an open green space along a super cute edge of a river. Kids and I did a short canoe ride down the river, sat by the fire at night, and day trip (bout an hour) out to the amazing Crater Lake. The main store on site is great too. We may come back and try one of the glamping sites too.

Outstanding tent site. Large, shade trees and sun, and lots of grass! About 40 min drive to Crater Lake. Highly recommended.

Dirty & Noisey
The park has some nice features and the owners have tried to make it a fun place to visit. However, they felt it was necessary to move a large pile of dirt from one side of the park to the other using a small tractor. The bucket was very small maybe two wheelbarrows of capacity requiring at least 50 trips past the campsites. The amount of noise and dust was extremely irritating covering our camp with a thick layer of silt. When I finally got fed up I went to the office to complain, instead of an apologize the Hostess said that was just the way it had to be than her husband jumped in to berate me and defend their right to create the atmosphere and that I should just accept the conditions as it was part of a construction project. I rented three sites for this trip and none of us will return here
