Lost Creek Crater Lake is a tent campground only and is in Crater Lake National Park. The campground sits at an elevation of 5,973 feet. There are 16 tent campsites that have a table, bear/food storage locker, and a fire ring. The campground has drinking water and portable/vault toilets. Also, visitors enjoy collecting dead/downed wood for campfires within fire rings.  Sites can accommodate up to 8 people and 2 vehicles. In addition, Lost Creek is about a 4 mile drive from the nearest view of Crater Lake at the Phantom Ship Overlook. The centerpiece of Crater Lake National Park is the six-mile wide, incredibly blue, Crater Lake, which lies in the collapsed caldera of a volcano inside Mount Mazama. Visitors enjoy a wide range of outdoor recreation which includes hiking, backpacking, biking, photography and wildlife viewing.

Finally, Lost Creek Crater Lake is open mid July through early October.

    We were lucky to have found site 12 available on a Monday at noon. This site was nice and flat and right by a water spigot and recycle/trash bin. You can hear the lost creek at night. The view of the milky way and the stars is amazing. It’s a short drive to the most beautiful sights in the park. The pictures on this website for Lost Creek CG might be outdated. There are far fewer trees. They are now free firewood on the ground and I admit we liked that. The sites were nice and clean and there were spacious critter lockers. The restroom was also clean except that the Women’s side had no light.
    I give this site three stars only because there is absolutely no supervision at all. There was a parade of cars that circled the campground kicking up dust and looking for a spot for hours. Even late at night cars would drive by. A simple sign at the entrance that says Campground Full would help keep the traffic down. The best and most quiet sites are 1 – 4 on the left of the bulletin board when you first drive in. I would camp here again.
