This is a beautiful campground! The surrounding trees make the sites a lot more private than you'd think, and the walk to the vault toilet was not bad at all, even in the dark. Our spot (#21, I think?) backed up to Union Creek, which was a gorgeous place to sit in the morning when I woke up long before my friends. I would camp here again if I'm ever fortunate enough to go back to the Crater Lake area--but I'd be sure to bring extra bug spray. The other reviews aren't kidding about the mosquitoes.
Overall, we had a very positive experience!
It is a travesty how many of these sites were reserved with no one in them. That being said, we found site 4, which was first come first serve, to be one of our favorites. There are a lot of sites that offer privacy and some back up either to Union Creek (as ours did) or to the Rogue River itself. There were mosquitos but a little DEET kept them at bay. Pro Tip: firewood at the lodge/store across the street is cheaper than what is available from the host. There is also a restaurant and ice cream shop just outside the camp entrance. Great jumping off point to Crater Lake and a much better camping experience. Take the Rogue River trail to Natural Bridge - the trail is not to be missed, it's a very easy but beautiful hike!
The family was split about this one. I thought it quite lovely. Our spot backed up to Union Creek and I love the riparian plant life. The kids love being next to the creek, but it was very buggy. One day I would love to come back to the area and hike on the Union Creek Trail.
