Lost Creek Campground is a small campground for tents located on the road to Pinnacles Overlook, three miles from the rim of Crater Lake. It usually opens in early July and closes in mid-October. Registration is self-service, and reservations are not possible. In July and August, the campground typically fills by mid-afternoon. Each site has a picnic table and a bear-resistant food locker. Lost Creek Campground is operated by the National Park Service.
* In 2020, Lost Creek Campground will be closed on the following nights:
• August 7 (will reopen at 6 pm on August 8) because of the Crater Lake Rim Runs event
** The campground is closed to RVs, buses, and trailers. An RV is defined as any vehicle with its own toilet. Vans and truck campers (without restrooms) are allowed. A tent is not required; you may sleep in your vehicle.
Payment can be made by cash (exact change only) or a check made out to the National Park Service. Credit cards are not accepted. Senior Pass and Access Pass holders are entitled to a 50% discount on camping fees.
