Overview

In the shadow of majestic Mount Bailey on the west shore of Diamond Lake, this campground takes its name from the view of the unforgettable peak of Mt. Thielsen. Thielsen View Campground is a favorite with families and anglers.

Recreation

This campground is a great location for many recreational opportunities. Diamond Lake is stocked annually with 300,000 rainbow trout. If fishing is not your thing, the campground is on the John Dellenback trail. This paved trail is an 11-mile loop around the lake. If you prefer to travel by foot, Mount Bailey and Rodney Butte trails are less than a five-minute drive to the trailhead.

Facilities

Thielsen View Campground has a boat ramp, free for campers staying in Thielsen View. Water spigots and gray water sumps are located throughout the campground. Each loop has at least two vault toilets. The closest RV dump station is at the resort’s gas station. The fee is $5 to use the resort’s dump or campers may use the Forest Service dump station in Diamond Lake or Broken Arrow Campgrounds. There are 60 sites in the campground. The 20 sites in C loop are reservable and the A and B loops are available on a first-come, first-served basis.

Natural Features

The mixed conifer canopy generously shades most sites during the warm summer days. All campsites are very close to Diamond Lake, which offers great sunrises over Mount Thielsen.
