Campfires & Briquettes Ban Lifted/Removed from Jackson County Parks Read more

Due to the ODF Fire Levels dropping from Extreme to High, and with Rain in the forecast and higher humidity levels, the Campfires & Briquettes Ban is now LIFTED/REMOVED, effective Friday, 9/1/2023.  Although the Ban is Lifted, we still recommend keeping all Campfires small and manageable and always monitored and not left unattended.  

Apserkaha Campground is CLOSED for 2023.

Group Camp Reservations are currently being accepted up to 9 months to the day in advance. Call (541) 774-8183.

Apserkaha Park, located on the southern shore of Howard Prairie Lake, provides groups and individuals with a unique outdoor experience. The camp is situated on 66 wooded acres and features almost a half-mile of lake frontage. The secluded lake access is an inviting feature of the park.

Camp facilities include a preparation kitchen (only with group reservations) and covered dining area, which seats 80, twelve fully enclosed, lighted sleeping cabins, 9 RV sites with water and electric hookups, ADA compliant vault toilets, two group firepit gathering areas, showers, picnic tables, barbecue pits and an easily accessible swimming beach.
