Hidden gem We were going north from CA to see Crater Lake and I looked at this KOA park but there were no reviews so I called 8 other RV parks that were all full then I called this park and they had 1 spot left that could fit our 36’ Winnebago and Jeep tow. They couldn’t use our KOA discount and no reviews because they were 2 weeks away from official KOA. We booked one night because we were heading to Bend. Now, if we only knew how cool this place was we would have stayed a few days. It’s remote, quiet, kid and pet friendly with lots of outdoor activities. Boats to rent from kayaks to fishing boats, miles of hiking/biking trails with waterfalls (we didn’t get to see because we had to leave), cabins on the lake to rent and a small store, too. Owners, Anita and Jim, are doing a lot of work to make this park a memorable destination on Lemolo Lake. There are things that need work and they are working to improve them. This is Old School camping and not a resort. However, the bathroom and showers are new and clean, they have stone fire pits for all the sites, picnic tables and plan on building a restaurant and lodge area. We will defiantly return next summer to this hidden gem! Remember to pack strong Bug spray for the bugs at dusk and use google maps not KOA maps to get there. Happy camping y’all, The Terry Family from Austin, TX
This is a fine dust camp ! If u don't mind every time when you take a step a cloud of dust, then go for it.
This is textbook High Mountain camping. The people are great, and the location is superb. The fishing can be amazing in the proximity to other great adventures make this a must stay place. Crater Lakes just up the road, Diamond Lake, and waterfalls Galore. It is several miles off the highway so the silence is deafening. Oh and did anybody mention the dust? LOL. That's just the way it is when you're up there. The cons? Showers are expensive and do not work super well. Things in the store are very expensive but it is 70 miles to the nearest town. The stuff doesn't just show up there for free. Lastly $40 a night is a little expensive.
