It’s important to know that this year will not be the same as previous years. There will be required changes to which facilities and amenities are available for use, as well as new rules to help keep our parks open through the summer.

WILLOW POINT CAMPGROUND & BOAT RAMP WILL NOT OPEN IN 2020.  With NO useable Boat Ramp, due to extremely low lake levels, use is expected to be limited. In combination with lower than normal staffing levels due to declining revenues and COVID-19 concerns, CAMPGROUND CLOSURE was the result for 2020.

Campground Reservations can be made Online or by Phone (541) 774-8183, up to 9 months in advance and a minimum of 15 days in advance of your desired arrival date. 

Willow Point Park at Howard Prairie Lake covers a total of 59 beautiful acres, includes .87 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 picturesque park provides numerous activities such as camping, fishing, boating, hiking, swimming and an excellent opportunity to get away from it all.  With prime lakefront sites and an extended boat ramp facility, including a fish cleaning station nearby, Willow Point Park offers all the makings for a fun-filled day trip or relaxing camping weekend.

Campsite Reservations are recommended but not required, and may be made online or by phone through the Parks Office,  (541) 774-8183, 15 calendar days to 9 months in advance of the first night's stay (CAMPGROUND MAP).
