32 RV sites with power/water/sewer, almost all back-in but plenty long. Reservations are not accepted within 2 weeks of your stay, but the county park reservation clerk, when called, will let you know if/how many sites are unreserved at the moment, if you are arriving that day. Without a reservation, drive around checking displayed reservation slips at each site to find one not reserved for the duration of your stay. When driving in, continue past the Oak Slope no-hookups campground entrance (on left) to "The Point" campground. Quiet location, with no OTA TV or wifi, but excellent Verizon bandwidth. When we were there, the lake was *very* low (well below the end of the boat launch) but there was still a rowing club practicing at sunrise and sunset every day. We camped at Emigrant Lake - The Point RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

Downtown Ashland is OK for walking around, with some nice shops. Weisinger Family Winery, south of downtown, has enjoyable wines and a pleasant dog-friendly shaded patio looking to the eastern hills, if you enjoy visiting wine tasting rooms. There are a couple other tasting rooms east of I-5 that were either closed or not dog-friendly. And plenty more further north on I-5.

We have stayed at this park several times this year and find it very delightful. The only drawback is that there is no wifi, but knowing that ahead of time, we can make alternate arrangements. Park is clean and quiet and a great place for boating. We don't have a boat, but the sites at the campground allow you to have excellent views of all the lake activities. We camped at Emigrant Lake - The Point RV Park in a Motorhome.

I love being able to stay in County and State Parks. They almost always are clean, cheap and oftentimes have something lovely to see. Sometimes they are quite difficult to get in to, but Emigrant Lake wasn't difficult at all - mostly due to the fires in Southern Oregon and Northern California. Which made the air quality around Ashland - well, horrible. That was the only sour note here and nothing to do with the park. We would have been able to walk to the lake's edge almost from our site if the water levels were at normal. But with the air being awful, we weren't up for that anyway. Of course the day we left, we saw some blue skies and puffy clouds. Used the shower facilities - very clean. The camp host lives at the entrance to the park and she was very relaxed - we found a card with our name and dates right on it when we made it to our site, so you can say that their computer system works great, as I booked online. The Lake is very multi-use, and we did see hardy souls fishing and boating, but the nearby kids areas were empty and the RV Park was fairly sparse, when normally this time of year it would be at capacity. We'd love to return during cooler weather, but before the winter. Let's just say - NOT in fire season! We camped at Emigrant Lake - The Point RV Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Of course, the Shakespeare Festival! We saw a wonderful play but were moved from the open air site to the local high school (due to the bad air), but still the production was great for the money. We also toured around and walked around the downtown district. Lithia Park is nearby and lovely, and we had an early dinner at Martino's which is just adjacent to the Shakespeare Festival grounds.

Due to the nearby fires, business was way down in the town which survives on tourism and the lake itself was quite low . . . maybe at near historic low levels.

Great park for water sports, visiting for the Shakespeare festival, or just generally exploring the Ashland area. The way the sites are angled, you're looking at the lake instead of your neighbor. Verizon was insanely fast (up to 40 Mbps). Did not try ATT. Pretty much all of the sites are great, but #5 is the best as you're broadside to the water, even though it's next to the dumpsters. We camped at Emigrant Lake - The Point RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Here for a very hot weekend. Most of all the camping areas seemed full, many jet skis, boats, paddle boarders and swimmers out on the lake. Trash bins overflowing everywhere. Like others have said there are burs EVERYWHERE, so be prepared to extract them from your pets. Sewer connection was a bit odd and required a makeshift bridge in order to get proper angle. The reservation website doesn't list how long the sites are, so you may want to call. Ours (14) just about fit our 36' MH. Their website also doesn't (as far as I know) list that they have handicap site(s). The one next to us (13) was one of those and was vacant all weekend. It had more asphalt which went around the picnic table and fire pit, whereas other sites had dirt/weeds. You might have a challenge hooking up and unhooking a tow vehicle as there is very little room anywhere for this. Possibly at the playground parking area, boat launch parking area, or dump station if unoccupied. Oh, and I hope you like communal camping....on two different occasions we stepped out of the MH and found different people sitting at our picnic table looking at the lake. Their greeting was 'You don't mind us sitting here, do you?' Yeesh, manners. Never saw the hosts or the parks dept folks. We camped at Emigrant Lake - The Point RV Park in a Motorhome.

This is a full hookup park that is part of Jackson County parks. You will pass their non-hookup park, Oak Slope Campground, on your way in. Loops and sites are paved with excellent views of the lake and mountains. It's a scenic area. Sites are nearby but well laid out. We stayed here one night in late January while traveling down I-5. We did not have reservations, but it was wide open this time of the year. There were only 3 other campers. It is 6 miles from exit 14. Do not use exit 6 because it is narrow and winding. Other than the lake I'm not sure what other activities are available since we were here for one night in the off season. Site #21 is at a point on the end with outstanding views. #19 has good views. Really any of the sites on the lake side have decent views. That's 5, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 16, 18, 19, 21. Sites 3, 6, 7 are on the other side of the loop road. There is an upper level loop road (26 through 32). If the campground were full, it's unclear how much you'd see the lake vs. the roofs of RVs in the lower loop. We camped at Emigrant Lake - The Point RV Park in a Motorhome.

This is a state park and was such an excellent value for $30 a nite full hookup. I didn't have a reservation, but there were many cancellations and open spots (likely due to the wildfires and excessive heat). The views of the lake were wonderful, even with only mile visibility from the distant wildfire smoke. My dogs and I could walk a long asphalt loop several times a day for good exercise. We tried a trail leading from the end of the campground, but the sticker-laden ground cover made it miserable for the smaller dogs. The "beach" near the campground had a kind of 1" burr everywhere resulting in carrying the dogs out of the plant zone back to the rocks--so not good for dogs. But kayakers and canoers seemed very happy. The bathroom shower were great. Spacious, private, copious hotwater, well-lit. If only other (private) parks could model these. The power was good, no surging even with everyone using AC because of heat (100+) The camp hosts were friendly as was the gate guard. I'm a californian who is so impressed with my first taste of OR state parks! Can't wait to come back when the smoke dies down and one can see the surrounding hills. We camped at Emigrant Lake - The Point RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Reservation system leaves a lot to be desired. Called for reservations and provided type of camper, length, etc. Upon arrival discovered they us in tent area instead of RV area. After several calls they found a spot for us. Whole time we were there constantly seen tents in RV spots. Someone needs to improve reservation system. No grass just burrs and stickers. Would only return if last resort. We camped at Emigrant Lake - The Point RV Park in a Motorhome.

Great big spillway dip causes rig to scrap really bad on roadway to park. Spacing okay not the best. Paved site level and utilities were fine. Still allowed campfires even during extreme drought and various fires around area. Camp hosts were very nice and ranger allowed tree to be trimmed that was overhanging rig.

We booked online, and I got to choose my own space: an amazing site right next to the lake. The view was spectacular, but it would have been good at any site with all the mountains around. The sites have fire rings and picnic tables. Our site wasn't very level and was a back-in, but it was paved and easy to back in to, and we were there for the view. There was a long wait to get parked, probably from people who didn't have reservations trying to find a spot, and we got there right at check-in time. Our name was attached to a pole on our reserved space. There is a friendly atmosphere with the other campers, who came from all over the country, and there are plenty of things to do at the lake. It is pet- and family-friendly. We camped at Emigrant Lake - The Point RV Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Wear good shoes if you walk down to the beach. I had flip flop-type sandals on and twisted my ankle on the short but steep and slippery hill, so we didn't get to do any of the fun lake stuff. We still enjoyed the awesome view!! Outside the RV section, the park itself has a 280-foot waterslide, canoes, skiing, fishing, and concession stand.

We stayed here for one night as part of a trip to San Francisco. It's just a short drive from I-5, yet seems many miles away. We had a pull-though site near the edge of the lake, and were treated to the most amazing view. The bathrooms were spacious and very clean. My family and I were impressed by the beauty of this park. I would definitely come back if staying in the Ashland area. Probably the most memorable of all the campgrounds I have stayed in! We camped at Emigrant Lake - The Point RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

There is a nice playground / play structure near the entrance to the park. If you are into watersports, this is the place for you! The lake is calm and you could easily use inflatable rafts or inner tubes to float on. If you go into Ashland, considering visiting the Shakespeare Festival. It's world-class!

Beautiful park, very scenic. Our site was very level. I think there was only one bathroom/shower building, we were conveniently located, but a good walk to the bathroom for some sites. Only gave 4 stars on service cuz we never saw anyone while we were there... Still everything was very tidy and well maintained. It rained (uncharacteristically) most of the time we were there, but I would normally expect heat. Not much shade, especially on our site.

All the sites have a beautiful view of the lake (reservoir). The sites on the lower part of the loop are close to the water (I don't think the approved swimming areas are adjacent to the RV sites). I think the sites on the upper part of the look have a more expansive view (that's where we were, and we liked it). We camped at Emigrant Lake - The Point RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

We camped here for Ashland graduation (June)... so much better than staying in a hotel. Our family joined us for campfires, dips in the lake, and the kids tried out the water slides. We took a beautiful hike along the lake (each for poison oak). The bathrooms were clean and the staff was extremely nice. Even though it was warm in town, we had a pleasant breeze at the lake. It was perfect! We camped at Emigrant Lake - The Point RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

So much to do in Ashland and at Emigrant Lake. There is a nearby golf course (Oak Knoll), amazing restaurants, and fabulous entertainment. Next time we wat to try the Stand-Up Paddleboards for rent at Emigrant Lake. Make sure you get a reservation... The Point at Emigrant Lake is popular.
