Why Camp Here

Crescent Lake Campground was voted the best in the area by a Central Oregon poll and this popularity extends to our other campgrounds on the lake as well. Part of the popularity of this campground is its resort-type atmosphere - since it is located right next to Crescent Lake Resort campers have the advantage of a nearby bar-restaurant, a small grocery store, and boat rentals. In addition there is a good boat launch area and a scenic location.

Good to Know

About two miles off Highway 58 near the top of Willamette Pass, this campground is located on a small hill overlooking Crescent Lake.  The nearby Hoodoo Ski Resort is open in the summer for some activities and there is a small town with a grocery store and more at the turn off for the lake. This area is a typical Oregon summer recreation area featuring Waldo Lake, Gold Lake, Odell Lake and Crescent Lake. There is plenty of camping all around the lakes but this campground is one that is heavily used by boaters and family vacationers.

Motor boats for water skiing are allowed on Crescent Lake.

We will have a host in the campground from about Memorial Weekend to Labor Day Weekend or you will be able to get help from the Crescent Lake Resort next door at (541) 433-2505.

RV use rating is 3 out of 5

Parking will be at Hoodoo's Crescent Lake Resort(541) 433-2505 in the off season.
