Although hook up rates have gone up $10 since last year, Emigrant Lake is a treasure of a park in Ashland, Oregon! Boasting beautiful and spacious full hook up RV sites, shaded grassy tent sites, a summer water park, a clean day use Pavilion with a new playground and endless boating, fishing and water activities all within 6 miles of downtown. Why would you want to stay anywhere else? We enjoyed our 10 day visit with two dogs and a 37 ft. RV. Each RV site had its own table, fire ring, new sewer connections, and level asphalt pads. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Five miles from the I-5 exit you will find a very quiet place for the night. All sites have a view over the lake. However, the water level is very low. There is a campground halfway in, this RV Park is at the very end of the road. Paved sites, mostly back in. There was only one fellow camper staying, so we could pick a pull through site. All hookups in excellent shape and where you need them. Friendly camphost. We did not use the restrooms. Next time travelling the I-5 we will plan accordingly to make this place a stopover again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is an excellent full hookup county park. Convenient to Ashland, well off Interstate 5, and peaceful (at this time of year). Every site has a terrific view. Sites are paved, many are long enough for any size rig, all have a picnic table and fire pit. All water sports are allowed on the lake, though the water level is quite low. We would definitely stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is a small park, not a lot of sites, but the views of the lake can't be beat. The sites are paved and all fairly long. There is no grass, just a lot of weeds and stickers. We've stayed here many times and always enjoy it, but it's getting hard to get into without reservations well in advance. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Great price here! We could of had a better space, but the locals get all those. Campground was packed full, mostly locals for a weekend getaway. Host was friendly and helpful. We only stayed 2 nights because of our schedule, but I could have enjoyed this place a week. This is one to remember and visit again. Pretty lake and close to other attractions. We will be back a 3rd time I am sure. Our space was #3 when we stayed here last June 02 also. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We wanted to love this park, and tried to stay there two years in a row, but the overwhelming sewer smell that is present starting mid day, and the oppressive stickers of all sizes and varieties that are everywhere off pavement won out and we just cannot return. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The RV area of this state campground is in a lovely setting on a hillside overlooking the lake. It's a beautifully designed RV area with clean restrooms and showers, a few miles away from Hwy 5 noise. This is one of my favorite campgrounds. Because we travel with a small trailer (16'), we could have stayed in the larger general campground without the hookups. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This park would be a 10 except: All the surrounding grounds are nothing but stickers and thistles of some sort. The sewer gas is really overwhelming starting about 11am. Too bad, because everything else is so good. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Nice little hillside park on the lake. Water was down in October but still enough to boat, canoe, etc. About 3-4 miles from Ashland on Rte 66 to park entrance. Another 1 1/2 miles over some fairly sharp curves to RV park. Tent camping is across valley from RV park. Didn't have/need reservations in Oct. but park stayed about 70% full. Would probably need reservations during summer. Don't recommend taking RV over mountains to Klamath Falls by Rte 66 or Dead Indian Highway. Very steep and crooked. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Nightly rate includes $1 nightly dog fee & $8 admin fee. This is a great campground with full lake views. You can view Osprey diving for fish and Canada Geese floating by. Very clean & quiet but not a lot of shade although we didn't need it with the crappy weather we had in early June. No cable TV or wi-fi so the Aircard really came in handy and worked fine. Ashland is not dog friendly, but Emigrant Lake is thank goodness. We were here for 9 nights, and I would come back again, but disappointed that there were no recycling bins. Ashland is so 'green' so we assumed a nearby campground would be too. Also, the closest laundry facilities are in downtown Ashland. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This was a lovely site and I wish I could give it a higher score but we ran into one irritating problem - earwigs! We left our camp chairs and firmly-closed Rubbermaid containers outside and in the morning they were full of hundreds of earwigs (our neighbor had them in his closed tackle box). We ended up unpacking and cleaning out the boxes multiple times and even days later, another earwig would appear. Maybe we were just camping there at the wrong time of year. We camped here in a Motorhome.
There is a tent area which is wooded - no hookups but a dump station, and an "RV Park" which has small trees. The views are gorgeous! We were here during the week late spring so didn't experience boat noise. This is a great stop-over park along I-5. We would definitely return. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Emigrant Lake is truly a beautiful location. And, if you have some sort of motorcraft, even more so. I would have given this location a higher rating if it were not for the following: the current hosts, while quite friendly, did not seem to have much of a grasp or concern about this place, perhaps because this was their first time in such a position. It was very frustrating trying to get any assistance from them. During the summer, this place gets VERY crowded, especially with families and lots of kids. If you don't like noise, radios blasting at all hours or screaming kids, this is not the place for you. No cable, no TV at all with the antenna and definitely no wi-fi. This is a terraced location and some of the spots can be a might steep, so be forewarned. Check the sites first. Again, the lake and view is gorgeous (visible from all the sites) and you can't beat the price. We camped here in a Motorhome.
New park, trees are small - so not much shade. There was a $6 reservation fee (in
addition to the $20/night). There is a waterslide for the kids. It would be a great place to bring a boat. We camped here in a Motorhome.
