  • Crescent Creek is a small campground that is somewhat isolated from other campgrounds in the area. It is relatively quiet and offers visitors the opportunity to experience the beauty and recreational opportunities of the eastern Cascade Range.

    The close proximity to the South Cascade Lakes provides visitors plenty of recreational options nearby. Nearby Davis Lake, Odell Lake and Crescent Lake are prime locations for boating, fishing and swimming. The Summit Lake Trail is popular among hikers and mountain bikers, offering excellent views of Diamond Peak. This is one of the most productive wildlife areas in central Oregon. Add a superb view of Cascade peaks at no charge and you have a truly special place to visit.

    Crescent Creek Campground is located just a short distance from Crescent Lake, Odell Lake and Davis Lake allowing visitors the option to visit many of the South Cascade Lakes. A forest of lodgepole pine provides the backdrop to this area, with mountain hemlock, fir and spruce also in the mix. Wildlife found in the area includes deer, native fish and migratory birds.
