Campground Fee Discounts
Senior Pass and Access Pass holders are entitled to a 50% discount on camping fees. Other passes, including the Interagency and Military passes, do not provide a discount.
Quiet Hours and Generators
Quiet hours are 10 pm to 7 am. Generator use is allowed 8 am to 8pm at Mazama Campground. Generators are prohibited at Lost Creek Campground.
Wood fires are allowed only in designated fire rings. Do not build rock rings outside the established ring or burn trash in the ring. Never leave fires or hot coals unattended and extinguish them completely before leaving.
You may bring approved firewood, purchase firewood at the Mazama Camper Store, or gather downed, dead wood. Do not cut, saw, or break any standing trees, dead or alive. Due to the potential introduction of nonnative plants and insects through the transportation of firewood, Crater Lake National Park participates in the “Buy it where you Burn” campaign. All firewood brought into or burned at the park must be “Approved Pacific Northwest Firewood.” This can be purchased at the Mazama Camper Store and at many locations throughout Oregon, Washington, and Idaho.
Water is a precious and limited resource; please use it wisely. Wash dishes at your campsite, not in restrooms or at water spigots. Strained dishwater must be disposed of in the grates located in front of each restroom. Dispose of food particles in trash bins, not in the sink drains or grates. Please do not bathe or wash clothes at water spigots or in sinks. Gray water from RVs and trailers must be contained and disposed of at the Mazama Campground dump station. Trash and recyclables should be sorted and deposited in the appropriate bins at either campground.
A free dump station is located in Mazama Campground and is usually open late May through mid-October.
