We stayed at group site C in mid July. There is a large paved area where we easily fit 6 trailers. Our group totaled 12 adults, 12 kids and 5 dogs and this campsite was plenty accommodating. I liked that it was away from other campsites so we could let the kids and dogs run free without disturbing other campers. There is a slight hill from the parking area to the picnic tables, but it wasn't unmanageable. And the beach area is right there on site as well. The water was too cold to swim but the kids enjoyed getting wet and just playing at the water's edge. The beach is more dusty than sandy and there were some trenches that had formed from water run-off. So don't expect the typical gradual sloping, sandy beach. The site is well-shaded but we also had to deal with a lot of mosquitoes. That is typical anywhere in Central Oregon in July though. Make sure and bring a netted tent so you can eat in peace from the bugs. There is plenty to do around the Newberry Crater. Lots of hiking trails, waterfalls, volcanic stuff, fishing etc. Overall, we had a great time. I wouldn't say it was the ideal group site, but it didn't keep us from having any fun.
