Due to Low Water Levels and Extremely Decreased Park Usage, GRIZZLY Park/Campground will be CLOSED for the 2018 Season on September 4th.
CAMPFIRES PROHIBITED at ALL Jackson County Parks. Due to recent fires, high temperatures, and dry conditions, the Oregon Department of Forestry has raised fire danger level to EXTREME. Due to this new notification, we have banned campfires at ALL of our Jackson County Parks, including campgrounds at Emigrant Lake, around Howard Prairie Lake, Willow Lake, Rogue Elk, Southern Oregon RV, and Cantrall Buckley parks. With fire crews stretched to their limit and the current EXTREME FIRE DANGER LEVEL, we have decided to ban campfires at all Jackson County Parks, until further notice. We will update our website if there are any changes. Thank you for your cooperation during these extreme conditions.
GRIZZLY BOAT RAMP IS CLOSED DUE TO LOW WATER LEVELS IN THAT AREA OF HOWARD PRAIRIE LAKE
Grizzly Park at Howard Prairie Lake covers a total of 80 beautiful acres, including 1.36 miles of lake frontage and a majestic view of Mt. McLoughlin.
Surrounded by the forests of the Cascade Mountains, Howard Prairie Lake is a popular destination, offering an abundance of recreational opportunities, and has some of the best trout and bass fishing in Southern Oregon.
This little gem of a park provides numerous activities such as camping, fishing, boating, hiking, swimming, or just relaxing in the midst of a natural oasis.
With beautiful lakefront campsites and boat ramp, Grizzly Park offers a unique outdoor experience and an opportunity to escape from the city for a fun-filled day or weekend camping trip. Campsites at Grizzly Park are first come, first served. No Reservations.
