The vibe at Mazama Campground
Drop some Mazama Campground knowledge on us.
Crater Lake is a must-see, spectacular 7,700 year old sunken caldera, now lake. A jewel of the park's system. Campground is large, well-run, but almost always packed. The weekend we were there was no exception...you'll always have neighbors. But people were quiet, and respectful. Even with reservation, you pick your spot on first come, first serve basis.
Glad I could enter campsite at 6p (Aug) but if you want to get away, get a backcountry permit. Expect a lot of RV's + families. Camping sites near the entrance of the park with a solid restaurant, Annie's, that provided a good breakfast to start off my 2nd day
