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.

GRIZZLY 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.

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.
