Details

Road goes on for about a mile. It goes a little further up a fairly steep hill with some spots for car camping up top. Before the hill there are 10+ spots, but only 4 or 5 in the tree-y area. The road intersects with another forest road that appears to have 2 spots if you go left on the road, though it'd be a little difficult to get a trailer/large rig in those spots

Worth at least two nights

Close to the North Entrance of Crater Lake NP. Plenty of spots to pick from. Suggested 4WD to go up the hill, I would also walk up to see if it's occupied.

Ended up staying two nights the Gnarly Tree spot with a awesome rock fire ring. Plenty of room for our 136 Promaster, level as well. No amenities, be self sufficient!

Beautiful forest camping

Lots of side roads just north of the hwy here. There are a bunch of spots for all size rigs. I didn't see any unpassable road, nor any sketchy folks. Beautiful night passed there.

Great views

These campgrounds had some awesome views. At the top it can get pretty windy and the ground is rocky so hard to put stakes in. The road can be kind of rough and uphill.

Nice spot

Stayed for one night after visiting Crater Lake. Lots of spots and only a few people there. Would highly Recommend!

Beautiful, short drive to Crater Lake

Stayed deep in the road, up a hill to a nice peak looking out on miles of forest. Absolutely amazing views if you can make it up, not recommended for low clearance cars or larger vehicles. Decent cell signal once you’re up in the clearing.

Left the campsite around 5 and made it to Crater Lake with time to spare to watch the sunrise, absolutely worth it if you can make it!

Nice area

We had decent Verizon with a weboost. For the most part very peaceful. While we drove up to the road end, we decided on camping lower down on a short road to the right. Not as much solar as further up, but definitely leveler.

Great location near Crater Lake

Lots of spots along this road and its crossroad, including a few big enough for big rigs. Roads are lightly maintained dirt and gravel, so take it slow. I only had weak and spotty Verizon where I parked near the highway, signal was stronger up the hill a bit, and I even found T-Mobile signal near the top, but wouldn't want to take an RV up there, as it's steep and tight in places. Good hiking, especially along the PCT that runs nearby. Quiet and not very crowded. I saw people every day I was there, but never a lot of people. Mosquitoes were abundant and aggressive.

30 Minutes North of Crater Lake

Loved this location for it's proximity to Crater Lake (30min) and Diamond Lake (10min). The nearest grocery store is about an hour away. There are around 10 spots on the main road and a few off of the side roads - some spots for big RVs near the front and on a side road to the right at the intersection. Towards the end of the main road it gets steeper and there's a pretty lookout (we walked from our campsite), I wouldn't recommend taking anything other than a van up there. Most of the spots were open when we went in July. Part of the PCT intersects with one of the roads if you want to walk on the trail. Make sure to put bug spray on here or you will get eaten alive!
