Campground Description

Campground Description

Team

Set adjacent to crystal clear Little Crater Lake and a stunning, wildflower filled alpine meadow, the Little Crater Lake Campground is a picturesque camp spot.  Featuring 15 sites, this little campground is ideally situated for those hoping to access Timothy Lake while avoiding the reservoir's summer crowds.  The campground offers few amenities: there is only one vault toilet, one source for potable water near the campground’s entrance, and no showers. What it lacks in comforts, however, it makes up for in serenity.  Speak with any of the other Timothy Lake camp hosts to check-in.

If the Little Crater Lake Campground is full and you’d still prefer a more tranquil Timothy Lake campground, check out the hike-in Meditation Point Campground or the Clackamas Lake Campground.  Otherwise, some of the other Timothy Lake campgrounds such as Pine Point Campground, Hoodview Campground, Gone Creek Campground or Oak Fork Campground may have what you are looking for.
