Welcome to the Lemolo Lake / Crater Lake North KOA!


The SNOW has MELTED and we are Fully Operational!

Are you ready to turn on EXPLORE MODE!
UNPLUG - This isn't concrete camping.  There's no highway traffic noise here.  No train traffic, no airplanes overhead, no national (insert whatever name here) chain store across the street.  
What's here?  NATURE!  Beautiful, majestic, awe inspiring, relaxing, rejuvenating, soul filling, ready to explore NATURE!
A Lake for fishing, boating, kayaking, paddle boarding and swimming.  Seven (yes 7) Waterfalls hikes!  A local hot springs, hiking & mountain biking.  Plus camp fires & sleeping under an amazing star-filled sky, where it truly gets dark at night.
Oh, we forgot to mention the awe inspiring Crater Lake National Park is just a few miles away too.

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 RV Sites, Tent Sites (both Traditional & Lake Front Sites), Deluxe Cabins & New in 2022 - Camping Cabins! to help you get out and enjoy nature. 
There's a "Nature Play" area for the kids to expend some extra energy (the Forest Service overlords don't like the word playground).  

Come enjoy our hospitality.
Come laugh and joke with us in our new store. Opening for the 2023 season!!!
Tell us about the current adventure you and your family or friends are working on and we'll add a few things to your list from the area.
We love to interact with adventurous people, and campers are some of the most adventurous out there.

Our goal is to provide an opportunity for you to create a memory that you will look back on fondly.  Then, for months, tell everyone you can how great it was.
Come see and play at our beautiful lake!  It's the worlds ONLY Dinosaur-Shaped Lake - (as far as we know) .
Come explore the surrounding mountains and trails.
The rest of our site will tell you the what's and how's of our KOA, but here is where you found out really what we're all about – EXPLORING NATURE!

We can't wait to see you!
Jim & Anita Hudson

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.
