Campfires & Briquettes Ban Lifted/Removed from Jackson County Parks

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.  

The North and West Boat Ramps are now CLOSED for the season.

As one of Jackson County Park's most popular destinations, Emigrant Lake has it all. Located just minutes from downtown Ashland, Oregon, the park offers a host of activities for the entire family. Emigrant Lake is a local oasis nestled between the hills of Ashland and a great opportunity to get away from it all without having to go too far from home. With 1467 expansive acres, including 12 miles of lake frontage, Emigrant Lake offers various recreational activities including RV/tent camping, fishing for bass, crappie, trout, boating, canoeing/kayaking, water skiing, swimming, picnicking, hiking, or playing on the playground. Set up your family reunion, company party, school group function, or wedding reception at one of our four covered Group Picnic Areas. All areas offer electricity, tables, barbecues and nearby restroom facilities. Group Picnic Areas can accommodate from 125 - 300 people. They are available to groups from 10 am to sunset. Whether you want to be close to the water, by the boat ramps, near the campground, or next to the playground, one of our picnic shelters will be ideal for your group. Group Picnic Area Reservations are not required, but recommended, and must be made by phone through the Parks Office.
