The camp store at Mazama Village is very well stocked, which is a good thing since the nearest grocery store is nearly an hour away..

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.

Even with a rezie, the spots are assigned upon arrival, so make it there early if you want to get a good site. We were in loop G and the sites were spacious. The mosquitos are relentless! Free showers in loop F and a restaurant.....

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

Can't beat the location! The campground is nothing special, but well-maintained and easily accessible. We arrived early on a Thursday and had a few choices of sites, but it quickly filled up. Lots of mosquitos!

Rolled in to Mazama campground without reservations and grabbed a great spot. Check in early. All sites are first come first serve. You can make a reservation but you pick your site based on a color designation so early arrivers get their pick. I have yet to see a spot I wouldn't be happy to camp in. Our site is enormous but even the small sites are spacious with lots of pine trees separating each camp site. Big plus - the bathrooms are flush toilets and super clean. I read that bugs during the summer are bad and that review is accurate. Bring LOTS of bug spray. Only bummer is the showers are closed due to water restrictions at the moment but we'll make due with a pot of hot water at our site. Overall - 5 stars.
