Jo’s Motel, Campground, & Organic Grocery (Fort Klamath, OR)
While we were visiting Crater Lake National Park, we camped at nearby Jo’s Motel, Campground, & Organic Grocery in Fort Klamath, OR.
The campground is located in Fort Klamath, putting Crater Lake about 30 minutes to the north and Upper Klamath Lake (which we didn’t visit) about 30 minutes to the south. For the most part, there’s nothing but this motel, campground, and grocery in Fort Klamath. There’s no gas within 45 minutes, so plan accordingly.
There are lots of cows and coyotes. We woke up one night to the sound of distant coyotes having a party. It was rather cool!
The organic grocery carries enough to cover your camping needs. We picked up some delicious grass-fed beef short ribs at a fantastic price. The store also carries a small selection of produce, chips and salsa/hummus, beers and wines from around Oregon, other meats, chocolates, and ice cream. There’s also a coffee bar and deli inside the store. Should you need a bigger city, Medford is about 2 hours away.
We were in an RV site with electric and water hookups. There are also primitive tent sites along the Wood River available.
There’s one bathroom for this small campground, with two stalls and a shower. They were plenty clean with great hot water.
Laundry & Wi-Fi
The campground doesn’t offer laundry or wi-fi.
The campsites were small with no trees or bushes to provide privacy or shade. It was about 95 degrees when we were there, so during the day, the lack of shade at our campsite made us take our chairs elsewhere in the campground for relief.
It’s a small campground with only about a dozen sites (not counting the primitive sites by the river). These are actually RV sites, so the lack of shade won’t affect the RVers.
We paid $30 a night for our campsite. It’s a little more than the Oregon State Parks we’ve stayed at, but it’s also the only campground with hookups in the area.
