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.
Jackson County Parks unveiled its newest RV Park on July 1, 2016.
Southern Oregon RV Park" is located in Central Point (I-5, Exit 33), in Oregon's Rogue Valley and is OPEN YEAR-ROUND. Accommodating larger rigs with 65' to 75' sites. The design of the facility is perfect for both the weekender and full-time RV'ers.
Nestled between two fishing ponds, teeming with trout, bass, and other warm-water fish, the park offers 92 full-hookup sites, with water, 20-30-50 amp electric, & sewer. Right in the heart of Southern Oregon, in a prime location near various lakes and the Rogue River, the park is near ideal locations for outdoor activities such as rafting, boating, fishing, hiking, cycling and camping. The location is also convenient for attending the Shakespeare Festival in Ashland, Oregon, and the Britt Music & Arts Festival in Jacksonville, Oregon.
Southern Oregon RV Park also connects directly to the Bear Creek Greenway, a 20-mile, paved, multi-use trail that links the cities of Ashland, Talent, Phoenix, Medford and Central Point.
All sites are paved with basic sites measuring 60' in length and 12' wide, while premium sites are 75' in length and 15' wide. Each site has a picnic table on a concrete pad and a fire pit for roasting marshmallows. The park has three centrally-located restroom buildings with showers as well as an additional restroom in the day-use area of the park. The Park Office/Registration Building is open Monday - Sunday, 10:00 am - 8:30 pm, (541) 423-8115. There is FREE Wi-Fi throughout the park and possible future plans for the park include group picnic shelters and accessible fishing docks.
Conveniently located on the northern edge of the Jackson County EXPO, the Southern Oregon RV Park's close proximity to the EXPO facilities provides a perfect opportunity to camp in a quality RV park and then walk to the Jackson County EXPO for the fair, concerts, rodeos, horse and livestock shows as well as the many other events held at the Expo. Those staying at the park don’t need to worry about parking, where to sleep or where to take a quick break during a busy day at the EXPO as your RV is just a short walk away.
