Campsite #1 We developed these sites with lots of room for privacy just down from Crater Lake. In this 450 acre ranch, 5 acres is for campsites and tipis. So we are only putting 5 sites up for camping and 6 tipi sites (listed separately). Most campgrounds have campers right on top of each other, ours gives you room to hike, see the wildlife, trees and wildflowers, you have space to 'be' here, and that's how we plan on keeping it. We just have a dirt road, and no electricity,  in our desire to keep compatible with the national forest that we are beside. The norm here is to hear the buzz and whir of hummingbirds, dragon flies and birds of all kinds, & some friendly deer. You get the feel of forest privacy and sounds. You can see the stars at night, and hear cows off in the distance, and since we are beside Crater Lake Highway, we are an easy distance to Crater Lake, so you will hear some traffic now and then. But the road is blocked by many very tall pine and cedar and juniper trees. You are across the street from Pelican Butte, a beautiful mountain range, and also see Agency Lake off in the distance. We now have a propane shower for our campers,   for free with your campgrounds fee.

We had a wonderful time at Kori and Bob's campsite! This a beautiful little spot in the Oregon outback. Each site is clean and spacious and feels secluded, almost like camping in the wild, but better! Kori was welcoming and friendly and made us feel right at home. They have put a lot of thought into they way they developed the sites and are trying to keep them as natural as possible. Kori has Native heritage and told us all about the history of the site and was able to point out the curved trees that were used by Native Americans to mark key trails in the area, one of which crosses the land at the campground. You can explore miles up this trail into the outback and eventually it connects to the pacific crest trail! Best of all, this site is less than an hour drive to Crater Lake National Park where we spent a day exploring the park!

A beautiful Oregon forest creates the backdrop for camp on the crisp fall day.Campsites are spacious and beautiful, and feel like camping in the wild!Exploring the beautiful Teepee on site!Setting up chairs around the fire.

Hosts were lovely and I know they have intentions of improving the site, I can't say that we really enjoyed our experience though. There was 1 portaloo and portable shower for the whole camp and there was only water at certain times of the year. It was also next to a busy road so you can hear the cars and the upkeep of the site is not great. A good option if you have a horse with you as it's got a pen and if you're just looking for a quick stopover.

Response from Bob & Kori, the Host, on June 25th, 2018

Water is all year around, but on a SOLAR well, which means that it only works when the sun is up. That was explained on the site. We are sorry if you didnt understand how solar works. Also explained is that we are just off Hwy 62, the road that leads to Crater Lake, and that sometimes there is traffic sounds. Other campgrounds are closer to the road and less private.

Bob and Kori’s campsite was great! Everything we needed for our trip to Crater Lake. The location was perfect, it was easy to find and the campsite itself was big enough and felt very safe. We didn’t get a chance to use the shower since we were gone all day but the toilet was exceptionally clean.

Bob & Kori are very sweet hosts and are working hard to make their sites enjoyable. After our Mazama campsite was canceled w/ 5 days notice “due to emergency tree work” we found this site on Hipcamp. The sites were not groomed & pretty overgrown, so it felt like walking through weeds unless you’re right next the the fire pit or on the road. The ground is loam so with every car driving by or every step there’s a cloud of silt. The sites are very close to the highway, so it’s not really much of a nature setting. I think some grooming of sites, maybe a hedge planted to buffer from the road and some stone put on the road to the tent sites might help. Horses on the property make it fun for kids and the cattle ranches around the property make for a beautiful drive to/from Crater Lake. Ok place to pitch a tent but not really a relaxing nature environment to want to hang out at the campsite.

Camp site #2.  If you zoom between trees you’ll see where there are cars driving by on the highway.Solar shower.  Not freezing water, but I never got anything other than cold water.Dirt road from the shower/portable restroom to the tent sites.View of our tent site #2 from the highway.
