Join us for DOD's 2024 family-friendly campout! This campout is situated at beautiful Lava Lake, along the Cascade Lakes Highway. You have two choices for camping - you can reserve a spot at Lava Lake RV Resort, or you can reserve a spot at the USFS campground that is immediately adjacent to the RV park. This is a family-friendly event. You don't have to have kids to join us, but please keep things kid-friendly.

Lava Lake is just big enough for kayaks, paddle boards, swimming, fishing boats, and the party barges, but too small for ski boats. This makes it fantastic for family fun, and the water is warm at the end of August.

These campgrounds are also the starting point for three mountain bike trails - the Edison-Lava trail (advanced) that goes east to Wanoga Snow Park, the Metolius-Windigo heading north, and Oregon Timber Trail which goes south from the campground. Additionally, Mt Bachelor Bike Park should be running and is located close by. It's a choose-your-own adventure weekend!


1) A small store with snacks, ice, beverages, and other essential gear.
2) Pay showers
3) Swimming dock
4) Fishing boats, paddle boards, and party barges for rent.
5) Cell phone coverage (at least for AT&T)

Additionally, the RV park has full power/water hookups and access to flush toilets.

RESERVE YOUR OWN SPOT ASAP - reservations open up soon for the USFS Lava Lake campground. It's unknown at this point when the RV park will take 2024 reservations but we'll keep you updated. Set this weekend aside - it's going to be a great time.
