Surrounded by national parks on all sides, Mazama Campground is an epic place to camp in the Cascade Mountains of western Oregon where you can let the stresses of everyday life fade away in favor of relaxing, scenic landscapes. Named for the massive ancient volcano a few miles away, Mazama Campground is found between Klamath Falls and Bend.This federally managed campground has over 200 sites scattered around, with optimal amounts of space and privacy for Crater Lake campers. The campground is seasonal because roads can be impassable during the heavy snowfalls of winter, but there is nothing quite like summertime camping at Mazama Campground. Amenities here include fire pits, tables, food lockers, flush toilets, potable water, and payphones.You won’t find many amenities at this mostly rustic park, but the naturally beautiful forests, lakes, and mountains around will keep you entertained. Hiking trails, showers, laundromats, a gas station, and a general store will take care of any needs you have, so you won’t need to head into town to fuel up or buy food to cook while camping at Mazama Campground. Park rangers often host nightly talks and workshops at the on-site amphitheater, covering topics regarding the ecosystems of western Oregon.

The Great Outdoors

When you book a motorhome rental near Crater Lake, you'll find yourself amid numerous nature parks, national forests, and lofty mountain peaks that climbers can conquer. Collier Memorial State Park is a huge hit with nature lovers, with undeniably amazing views of the Cascade Mountains and access to the Williamson River. The Spring Creek and Williamson River are great places to go swimming, boating, kayaking, canoeing, and fishing, especially when the temperatures soar. Sun Pass State Forest is an exceptional place to check out when you rent an RV near Mazama Campground, with plenty of space to hike or mountain bike, among other things. Swimming, boating, fishing, and kayaking are also possible in one of the many bodies of water in this lush state forest, and you can even book a campsite for your RV rental if you feel the urge to see more.Mazama Campground is located between Fremont National Forest and Winema National Forest, two massive slices of nature making up over two million acres of heavily forested mountains and hills. Head to places like Lake of the Woods in the heart of the backcountry for some of the best boating and fishing in Oregon, or trek through the wilderness while staying at peaceful, undeveloped campgrounds in the mountains.There is no forgetting about Crater Lake National Park when you rent an RV near Mazama Campground because the camping area is part of the national park, just several miles from its main attraction. Crater Lake is a UNESCO World Heritage Site thanks to its natural history and ethereal nature. When Mount Mazama blew its top 7,000 years ago, a gigantic crater was left behind, slowly becoming one of the deepest, clearest, and most heavenly lakes in America. Driving, walking, or biking around the rim of the lake is a pleasure, and there are several other camping facilities within the park.

The Baldwin Hotel Museum is one of the historic structures in town, erected in 1906 to serve as a hotel for travelers. Lots can be gleaned just by walking through this amazing building on a guided tour.The Klamath County Museum tells the story of both Klamath Falls and Klamath County, with a magnificent list of outdoor and indoor exhibits to showcase the many facets of its history. The botanical garden outside has plenty of native plant species, so visitors can learn about the nature of the region as well as human history.Native American culture from all over North and South America can be viewed and studied at the Favell Museum, which has a collection of art pieces and artifacts from all over. Local Klamath and Modoc tribes are featured at this institution, but you can find pieces of art from as far north as the Arctic Circle in Alaska, or from the tip of Patagonia in South America.

Questions about RVs?

Q.

What type of RV should I choose?

A.

Start by determining how many people are planning to travel with you. Going on a solo-journey? Choose a camper van or a teardrop trailer. Bringing the whole family along for the ride? Consider a spacious Class A or five-wheel.

You’ll also want to consider amenities. For example, if you’re planning to cook on the road, you’ll want a kitchenette. If your campground doesn’t have public restrooms, you’ll want to search RVs with bathrooms. Check out full descriptions of our models to help you decide here.


Q.

Do the RVs have bathrooms?

A.

Yes. Class A’s, Class B’s, and Class C’s and five-Wheels typically have bathrooms. Depending on where you plan on camping, you’ll want to double-check the availability of restrooms if selecting a rig without a bathroom. Nervous about renting an RV with a bathroom? Owners can help show you how to clean the tank or will offer to do it for you for a fee.


Q.

How does check-in work?

A.

Once an Owner approves your RV reservation, you can coordinate a time to pick up your rig or have it delivered to your doorstep or campsite. At that point, the owner will do a key exchange with you and walk you through the RV and answer any questions you might have.
