  Many pics & stories

 

I stayed here for three nights in May, 2005. The only loops open on May 13 were the "B" loop for RV's, and the "D" loop, for tenters only. "B" is close to the Lost Creek Reservoir, with some sites having views of it from their rears. See the site map for the layout of the loops. See their website for other details because other RVers have told me in 2008 that now all loops are open during the reservation season.
Site B-15. According to the site map, it is 38' long. That's the lake in back.
Site B-16. According to the map, it is 59' long. The trail to the left leads to a nice walk along the lake.
Site B-23. According to the map, it is 60' long.

This was my home in B-27. It seemed even longer than what the map said at 60' long. It is one of the inside loop sites.

 

It also had a great tree where the orioles at my bird feeder kept me amused watching them eat and flit about. But I picked this site because it looked like the only one where satellite reception would be remotely possible. It offered plenty enough room in my back yard to be able to position the tripod so that it could point through the one hole in the heavy tree coverage here. This was really the first time I could truly see the benefits of the tripod over the roof mounted units. And I really like my new tripod - it is so much simpler and lighter than the first one I had. I was impressed that my installer, Roger at Global Sat Solutions, provided me with this new setup after I told him what problems I was having with the original one.

I usually get TV reception by my roof mounted satellite unit. After 4 years, I've gotten pretty good at getting a signal on that, but no way I could have gotten the signal here - it pointed directly into a tree. So for the first time, I used the setup option he rigged for me so that I could get TV via the internet satellite if I needed to. So it was the best of both worlds - lots of trees with singing birds, and still able to keep in touch with the outside world.

GPS coordinates:
42.41° N; 122.37° W

From South: I-5 exit 30 onto SR 62 heading towards Crater Lake; 33.7 miles to park
From North: I-5 exit 40 to SR 242 N; to SR 62; 13.6 miles to park

Malia's 2 cents: It rained 2 out of the 3 days here, but I could still see how beautiful the park is. We took advantage of the one sunny day we had to walk along the lakeside trail to the marina where we dined overlooking the water as we watched the iridescent swallows.
