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 teepees (2 teepee sites). So we are only putting 10 sites up for camping and 2 are teepee sites (listed separately). 5 of these sites also have 2 stalls each for camping with your horsey companions. 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, all is solar 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, which is SOLAR (works from 9am-6pm when sun no longer hits panels)...check out a towel with us and shower 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!
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.
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.
