Emigrant Lake is a Jackson County Park located about 6 miles SE of Ashland. Besides tenting & RV park, there's opportunities for swimming, picnicking, hiking, boating, canoeing, kayaking and fishing. Day use fee in 2005 is $3.00.
Before you get to the campgrounds, there's a pulloff and you can drive across this earthfilled dam (not in the RV, though - not enough parking or turnaround at end.)
It's worth coming back in the truck or tow, though, because at the end of the dam, there's a trail that splits off where you can walk skirting the water or the pretty hillside.
At the top, if you take the fork toward the lake, you'll come to an old cemetery that fronts the water.
The views along this short, easy, circular path are well worth the walk.
Group picnic areas
Going further into the park, there are 4 reserveable covered picnic areas with electricity, tables, barbeques, and nearby restroom facilities.
The park also contains a 280' waterslide area that has dressing rooms, showers, restrooms, picnic tables and a concession stand with a full menu. Ten-ride, half-day and group rates are available. Open Memorial Day to Labor Day.
The Campground road to the left is to the 42 tent sites. Rates in 2005 are $16/night - no hookups.
Site # 26 - a pull-through site in the Campground Area.
View looking down from the Campground area sites onto the restrooms and across to the RV park on the water. The RV park overlooks 12 miles of Emigrant Lake's north shoreline.

GPS coordinates: 42.16° N; 122.61° W
5 miles SE of Ashland
I-5 exit 14 (SR 66 towards Klamath Falls) - 3.2 miles to Emigrant Lake Road; turn left and it's about 1 mile to the RV park.

Malia's 2 cents: Very pretty park with great views of two of my very favorite things: mountains and water. It's also a great place for bird watching. While staying at the RV park, I watched ospreys dive bombing for fish in the sparkling blue lake and was awakened by the sweet songs of little yellow birds outside my window each morning. Most definitely the good RVing life here!
