Road in is well graded, not a ton of logging traffic when we were there. Bit of an odd setup with 2 tent sites accessed through 2 drive up sites, but there are picnic benches for every site. As a warning, at high winds, there are a few flagged off danger trees that you'd want to avoid sleeping close to.



Stunning rec site with lakefront camping sites. Don't attempt with a large RV or trailer, but anything 20ft or shorter should be good. Make sure to hike to Crater lake from the ski resort on the way!
