The beautiful Applegate River is the focal point of Cantrall Buckley Park, which spans over 88 acres, and features 1.75 miles of river frontage, making it a very popular recreational destination in Jackson County. The large native trees and ample lawn make this an ideal site for family gatherings or group picnics. Four well-appointed Group Picnic Areas are available for a variety of social events and group gatherings.

All four Group Picnic Areas offer tables and barbecues and Area A also offers electricity and a covered shelter. Areas are available from 10 am to sunset. Group Picnic Reservations are not required, but are recommended, and must be made by phone through the Parks Office.

Nestled within native laurel and pine trees, above the beautiful Applegate River, our 30-site Campground provides an ideal camping location while attending the Britt Festivals in nearby Jacksonville. All sites include a campfire ring and picnic table and restroom/shower building (No Showers Until Further Notice.)

Need more space? Be sure to utilize the Group Campground. Reservations are required for the Group Campground and made through the Parks Office.

BLUESKY renewable energy

Did you know that Jackson County Parks, in cooperation with A Greater Applegate and the Pacific Power Blue Sky program recently constructed a solar panel array the park that will generate a significant amount of the Park’s electricity? The Pacific Power Blue Sky grant program provided $89,530 to install the panel that generates approximately 24.5 kWp. The array looks beautiful in the park, serving as a shade structure for visitors looking to get out of the hot summer sun. There are beautiful interpretive displays and education elements surrounding the solar panels for park visitors to learn more about the sustainable elements of the project. You can even view the electrical generation in real-time
