Little Crater Lake Campground is one of the most scenic spots in the Mt. Hood National Forest (shhh, don’t tell anyone!). Not far from camp you’ll find Little Crater Lake--a chilly, crystal clear and even turquoise, spring-fed pond that--while much smaller--still gives the actual Crater Lake a run for its money! Crater Lakes FTW. For the 411 on off-season accessibility, check the current conditions.
