Little Crater is probably the nicest campground in the Deschutes National Forest in terms of views and setting. The campground is next to Paulina Lake and the area offers a variety of outdoor activities including: boating, fishing, hiking, biking, wildlife viewing and sightseeing.
Little Crater is one of the most popular campgrounds in all the Deschutes Forest. Be sure to arrive early, because this campground tends to fill by Thursday afternoon for most weekends. The 49 Little Crater sites specifically are on a fairly thin ledge right on the lake and all the campground sites are within a minute walk to the water. The sites are ample sized and most are good for both tents or RV and trailers. There is an RV dump station near the entry of Paulina Lake Campground.
Please note that the campsites have been renumbered and to check the map for campsite placement.
