Welcome to the Lemolo Lake / Crater Lake North KOA Holiday!


Is it time for some Quiet Life Travel?
Maybe a Cabin in the Mountains?
We have your covered, whether it's a Newly Remodeled Deluxe Cabin, Camping Cabin, RV Site (with full hook ups) or a tent site on or off the water.  
UNPLUG - This isn't concrete camping.  There's no highway traffic noise here.  No train traffic, No airplanes overhead, No national chain store across the street.  
What's here?  NATURE!  Beautiful, majestic, relaxing, rejuvenating, soul filling.  It's also ready to explore if you need some Adventure Activities while you're here.

We start with a beautiful setting on a stream fed mountain Lake.  You can fish, boat, kayak, canoe, pedal boat, paddle board or swim in the quiet and serene mountain setting. 
Need some time trekking in the woods?  How about Seven (yes 7) Waterfalls hikes?  All are within a short drive of the campground  Some are Very Easy, Some a Little More Challenging.
If that's not enough yet, how about a local hot springs or miles and miles of hiking & mountain biking trails. 
Plus the evening warmth of a camp fire, munching on a pizza delivered to your site by our staff, then sleeping under an amazing star-filled dark night sky.
Oh, we forgot to mention the awe inspiring CRATER LAKE NATIONAL PARK is also just a few miles away (18 miles to be exact).

Lemolo (pronounced Lem-O-Low) - derived from a Chinook Indian word meaning "wild" or "untamed".  And when you get here, you'll see that it fits.      
All this, with KOA quality you expect:
6 Newly Remodeled Deluxe Cabins (3 remodeled for 2024) 
Our New in '22 Camping Cabins
Full Hook-up RV Sites
Tent Sites (both Traditional & Walk-in Lake Front Sites), 

And were not finished yet!
We recently built a "Nature Play" area for the kids to expend some extra energy.
We will be opening our Picnic pavilion in 2024 and
Our Brand New - 3 times bigger - Store opened for the 2023 and is well stocked with ALL the Camping & Get Out and Explore Items You need when you visit.  

Come enjoy our hospitality.
Tell us about the adventure activities your working on and we'll add a few things to your list from the area.
Whether your into Solo Travel or bring the family and friends, it's all here waiting.

Our goal is to provide an opportunity for you to create some great memories you'll want to share with everyone you can.
Come see and play at our beautiful lake!  It's the worlds ONLY Dinosaur-Shaped Lake - (as far as we know) .

We can't wait to see you!

Local Area

Crater Lake National Park

Lemolo Lake/Crater Lake North KOA is located just 18 miles north of the North entrance to Crater Lake National Park. The unmatched beauty of this national park is a must see for any traveler through the region and is the only National Park in Oregon. The north entrance "typically" opens around June 1st of each year, but can fluctuate a few weeks either side of that date depending on snowfall in a given year. The North entrance closes on November 1st each year, unless snow fall closes it earlier. The website link for this section provides all the details on road conditions and other information you'll need before visiting Crater Lake National Park.  
If the north entrance is not open when you visit the area, don't worry, the South entrance to the park is open YEAR ROUND and only adds about 45 minutes to your drive.



Watson Falls

A local favorite and the tallest waterfall in the area at nearly 300 feet.  This one is well worth the 15-minute hike from the parking area just off Highway 138.  The trailhead is about 12 miles from the turnoff to our campground and is well marked along the highway with forest service signage.  As one of the most popular waterfall hikes, quite a bit of parking is provided and it's configured so most large vehicles can get in and out.



The North Umpqua Trail

The North Umpqua Trail (locally known as the NUT).  This popular trail for mountain biking, hiking and ultra-running has been featured in outdoor magazines as one of the best trails on the west coast.  The most popular segment, the "dread and terror section" is located ½ mile from our KOA.  In fact, multiple mountain biking and ultra-running races have used our KOA as starting or finishing points.  Come see what enthusiasts already know.  Some of the best hiking and biking in the world is found just outside our KOA's doorstep.



The Pacific Crest Trail

The Pacific Crest Trail, is a famous hiking trail that extends through the U.S. from the Mexico border to the Canadian border.  A connection to the trail is located just a few miles east of our KOA.
