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.
We were worried about staying here after reading some reviews, but were very tired and decided to give it a try. It turned out to be a good stop over spot. It is a nice setting although some tight spaces. Wi-Fi worked well and our Verizon phone had service. The bathrooms were older, but very clean. The other campers were friendly as was the manager. We would stay here again when driving through the area. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We were fortunate to find this place at night in the rain, but definitely would avoid it in the future. The entrance is kind of pretty but as you look around the park it is really rough. Lots of full timers in small campers and even some in tents! (Assume they were full timers because this certainly isn't vacation weather.) We registered after hours and were confused as the only pull-thru site we could fit into (only 7 total in the park) was listed as "full hookup" but we could only access electricity. The roadway to get to it was very rough, water-riveted gravel. Did not feel safe. Would not do this again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Rate reflects Good Sam discount for 4 nights. We got the only pull-through site in the park, and it didn't have sewer. It was next to Neil Creek, which was lovely, but the park is small, with very narrow, windy roads and small sites packed close together. If we had been assigned any other site in the park, we would have left. The manager was friendly and our check-in easy. The Wi-Fi worked well in our space. There appear to be a lot of long-term residents, and the park is in need of maintenance. We will not stay there again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
The staff/owners were very friendly and helpful. We stayed twice in one week. The first night, we got there early and they let us check in early. The owner went and trimmed a tree for us because we are nearly 13' 6". As one reviewer said, there are some long-term residents here, but we did not find them unfriendly. In fact, during our first stay, someone in a site next to us was having difficulty with their trailer jack. One of the long-term residents helped to fix the problem and get the trailer hitched to the pickup. The creek behind us was wonderful. It helped to relax us and help us to sleep after a long day of driving. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stayed here for two weeks while we looked for a home to buy as we are moving to Ashland. The price was $31 per night. Friends recommended the campground as they stayed here during the Shakespeare Festival. This appears to be an older park and would be a very clean if not for a few irresponsible dog owners. It's very quiet. Sites are dirt and when it rains you have mud to deal with. The roads are narrow and one permanent resident’s auto blocked our path. He moved but only after waiting 10 long minutes: a little irritating. Some residents complained about voltage spikes (we asked after reading some reviews) but we were fine. The site hook-up equipment was old and could use some TLC. This looks like an older park that has gone past its “hay-day.” My wife found some poison oak near the creek so be careful. Staff was not overly friendly but got the job done. Verizon data service works well along with Cable TV but the Wi-Fi was poor or inconsistent. If internet is important, get a space close to the office. There are a few permanent sites that could use some serious clean up. Not sure if I would go back or recommend to other RVers as it needs some TLC. Problem is there are not many good campgrounds, in my opinion, close to Medford/Talent/Ashland. With this said, overnight would be okay but would second-think a long term stay. My wife feels a 1 is justified but I feel a 3 is appropriate given the needed TLC. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This would be a very clean park were it not for a few irresponsible dog owners. It's very quiet. Sites are dirt, with a wide variation in size, shade, level, and condition. I measured as high as 131 volts at the 30 amp outlet. Roads are asphalt or dirt, medium width, in good condition. Staff are friendly. Verizon data service works well. Cable TV is Charter. The rate includes tax and AAA discount. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We almost missed staying at this very special place due to some of the other reviews. That would have been a shame as we just loved this park. The owners could not have been more helpful. We had planned on staying just a few nights and ended up staying over a week. We even made reservations for next year and I can't wait to go back. Many sites are right on the creek and we just loved listening to that during the day and falling asleep to it each evening. This is a very relaxing, casual environment. It is a rustic setting but clean. Bathrooms and grounds are clean. It is true there are a few permanent sites that could use some clean up. On the other hand one of the permanent residents has a lovely flower and vegetable garden. He even gave me a yellow rose and squash from his garden and was very friendly. The campground is quiet and in a very pretty rural setting yet is only six miles from Ashland. Sites closer to the office have the best internet. We loved Ashland. We walked in Lithia Park, went for bike rides around Ashland. We had a fantastic dinner at Alex's Restaurant. We sat outside. The crabcakes were the best we have ever eaten; chicken piccata was delicous with mashed potatoes and vegetables. All parks have pluses and minuses. To us, Glenyan has many pluses. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Rather rustic. Our pull through was a little narrow for today's rigs. We had only Electric (30A) and Water in the pull through. Some of the back ins were FHU. The faucet had a broken handle. It had been that way a long time. Staff was pleasant. Verizon service was good. Not sure if I would go back, it needs some TLC. Rate includes discount. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Pleasantly surprised! Just minutes from Ashland. Easy access pulling 38' 5th wheel. Large shade trees with the sound of Neil Creek all thru the park. A few permanent sites. The facilities are dated, but nicely maintained with fresh paint and very clean. The pool looked nice, but it was too cold to swim while we were there. Paved roads with crushed granite sites. It rained while we stayed and very little dirt tracked inside. Pet friendly. Lots of birds to watch and hear. Will definitely stay again! We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This was a pleasant stay in a charming older park where each site is named. Ours backed up to a rushing creek, the sounds of which made for a good rest. Residents out number transients here and there are a good number of tenting sites. Some may call it "hippie-dippy" but we felt completely welcome and everything seemed well maintained. We'll definitely return here with tenting friends for a week of Shakespeare fest events. We camped here in a Motorhome.
It is true that this campground looks out of date. However, the lady at the office is sympathetic. The restrooms are old but clean and the swimming pool seems OK. If you travel in a small RV, ask for site 18 or 19. The road nearby is quiet at night, and these particular sites are wide and surrounded by high shrubs of wild roses and berries so it is two very private sites with hard sand ground. Real campsites as it used to be before the invention of big rigs. We camped here in a Motorhome.
If this were $20 a night it might be barely acceptable. At $32 it is a rip off as it is badly in need of paint, gravel, and cleaning. It is full of trashy trailers, dead cars and rusting unused trailers. The road is paved but the sites are plain dirt. It is too bad because the setting is beautiful, nestled in Oak tress on a creek. At one time it must have been one of KOA's flagship parks. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Not worth it. Keep on going and stay in Phoenix. Glenyan was dusty and dirty and run down. Full of shabby semi-permanents. Lots of barking dogs and the proximity of the road (noisier than a freeway) made this a real drag. The pool was covered during a heat wave and looked to have been covered for months. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The web site makes the park seem nice. I was unpleasantly surprised when we arrived. There are lots of long term residents and some sites are very trashy. All of the sites are dirt and the small amount of grass is mostly dead. The only plus is that it is only a short distance from Ashland. We definitely won't stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We have stayed at Glenyan Campground for the last five years because of its proximity to downtown Ashland. The facilities are adequate. We thought the owners were going to upgrade the park, but it seems that each year there are more permanent residents and some sites are very, very shabby with wash hanging on lines outside and junk piled around the sites. There are lots of tent sites and less than a handful of sites suited for motorhomes over 35 feet. None of the sites we have stayed in had asphalt, concrete or grass. They were all dry, dusty dirt. With over 60 sites, it is pretty quiet. The owners are friendly and helpful if needed. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Don't always depend on the TL ratings. We drove 3 1/2 miles each way from the freeway and when we got there at 3:30PM the office was closed and it said register and then find a site. We drove through and weren't impressed with any of it. Narrow roads with overhanging trees, messy spaces, and a lot of junky permanents. I have stayed in places with worse ratings and were nicer places. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This park is the cleanest park in Ashland. It is wonderful to find a clean, heated bathroom and shower house. The owners were not very friendly towards us however. Rarely would the husband smile and he stopped us at the entrance to the park when we returned in our car. It made us feel unwelcome. The park itself was beautiful, nice creek, and allows dogs. Lots of long term renters so we did not get a good spot. Only long term renters get full hook ups. Overnight stayers do not have sewer. That was inconvenient. The trailer parked next to us had its tank overflow. I bet this happens often in these spots. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Nice park, but we were there early in the season so not yet fully spruced up. Nicest, cleanest bath/shower rooms of the 7 parks we stayed in during our Olympia-San Diego trip. Rated 8 instead of higher because we were assigned a scruffty site on the fringe of the park when lots of nicer ones, closer to the facilities, were available. We would stay here again when in the area. Highly recommend the Iron Skillet at Talent, Ore for meals out. We camped here in a Tent Trailer.
This is an older campground, lots of full-timers. It was an overnight stop on the way to California, but next trip, would probably stay somewhere else. Recommend big rigs avoid this campground. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The hosts are friendly. There are limited number of full hookup sites, and the ones that have sewer are not located in a great area. It is pretty tight, especially when they have tenters located behind your site. It can become quite noisy. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We chose this RV park because it was the closest to the Ashland Shakespeare Festival. Older park, with paved but narrow roads. Sites were tight and close together. 50 sites but only 9 pull-thru and only 11 with sewer, but they do have a sewer dump. Staff was friendly, and it appears the new owners (2004) are making some improvements. Clean restrooms and showers. Cable TV and wireless internet included in fee. Very quiet park with stream running through in. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Nice Jackson county campground about 4500ft in elevation. Large sites with lots of trees, but not very level for large RVs. There were deer, ducks, geese and two bald eagles fishing across the lake. Sail boats, ski boats paddle boats and of course fishing boats. They have friendly staff and host. Little store with mostly fishing tackle, cafe, soft serve ice cream and marina. Clean restroom and 25 cent showers. We had no Internet or satellite. Others had satellite dishes on a 100ft cable out in a clearing. We did have cell service. Very peaceful, even with it being a busy weekend. We will return. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This park is located about 20 miles east of Ashland but has an Ashland mailing address. It is well worth the drive if you are looking for a quiet, cool and friendly park next to a great fishing and boating lake. I would have given this park a "10" but reserve that for parks with Wi-Fi. You can plug your laptop into a phone connection in the restaurant but the connection is slow. There are boat rentals, a great restaurant with soft-searv ice cream. This park opens about April 15 and closes October 15 of each year. Virtually every spot is in the shade, good for the summer months, but cold during the off season and of course rain drips off the branches onto the trailer. We have camped here early, middle and late season and aways enjoy this resort. Don't count on getting a holiday weekend spot unless you arrive early. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We stayed one night at this site. It is located on the shores of Hyatt Lake. It is beautiful, quiet and peaceful. All the sites have a table and fire pit. The bathrooms are clean and have free and hot showers. The camp host is very helpful and friendly. There is a beach area with playground equipment and supposedly great fishing in the lake. The site has a dump station that is convenient. Some sites have a nice view of the Lake, although I guess they don't qualify as "waterfront". One surprise for us: our friends who arranged for us to camp there told us "It's 16 miles off I-5 on Highway 66." What they didn't tell us that it is a steep winding road that ascends about 4000 or more feet; it might be a challenge for big rigs. Be sure you are all fueled up before you start the drive, as there are no gas stations along the way. We were told there is a gas station about 6 miles past the camp site, but the gas is very expensive. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We were here over labor day and were lucky enough to get the biggest site they had for our 35' motorhome with a huge covered patio and "backyard" area. It's a funky little place where we've been before so knew what to expect. We were surprised that there was only a water and electric hook-up and no cable and sewer as others had stated on here that they had. We did not hook-up to the water. We were able to get a few local TV stations with our antenna and our Verizon MiFi, cell phone & AT&T cell phone all worked well here. We would definitely stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The only reason to stay here is the large swimming pool, spa and sauna. The camp ground is nearly all long term residents and most sites are junky. There are only a few sites available for brief stays. The spa and pool are open to the public. We camped here in a Motorhome.
WARNING!!!! DON'T HOOKUP TO THE RV PARK WATER! Make sure your tanks are full before staying here. The sulfur water is not only smelly, but attracts flies as the smell is kin to a carcass. This campground is more for people coming to use the Springs. As stated there is only 5 available spots, the rest is taken by hippie-oneness. Management accommodating & hard working, the rest of the staff is not. Nice facilities for the Springs. Nice pool, hot springs pool, sauna & spa. It seems they only use the sulfur water as the secondary water & tap into a separate spring for the pools. Good place to rent a tee pee, swim naked after dark & remember your youth. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is not an RV park. It is a run down, full on friendly hippie commune. Weeds, dirt, vile, stinky, sulfur-water with 90% permanents in ratty rusted trailers, and nasty bathrooms are what's here at the park. However, the Wellsprings is semi-separate from the park, and it's pretty good. They have a huge colder springs pool and a huge hot springs pool. It's a great place to to take the toad to and soak your aching bones. Highly recommended! Due note: still more hippie vibe than not. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The atmosphere in this camp ground is very hippie and kind. The access to a Sauna is also included when camping here! We were able to pick up a weak wifi signal at our spot. The water is the worst aspect of this resort. It is a sulfur spring water that STINKS like rotten eggs. You do not want to use this water in your RV. The smell lingers. Aside from the smell, it also leaves an oily/slimmy residue on your hands. Someone who works at the park knocked on our door two hours prior to check out, hassling us about where we were going next. This was a negative for me because I like my privacy. Lastly, let me describe the bathrooms. The main lodge has a larger bathroom/shower and sauna that is descent. (They only clean it once a week, Monday afternoon). This main lodge is only open 9am-10pm. It is an attraction the park has, so many people may be paying to use the sauna as well. The second bath house which is particularly for the RV Park is COLD, and not clean. I wish they would heat this building, because there is no way I could shower in there. It must have been 40 degrees in the cement building. Over-all, it is a friendly park, with nice people, but it has a run down, too laid-back feeling at times. No good water. Fine for overnight. Safe. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Located on site of Jackson Wellsprings sulphur hot springs. Overgrown grass/weeds, almost all long term trailers/mobile homes not well kept. Nice residents, hippie-like lifestyle. Water hook-ups provide sulphur water. Facilities in very poor condition, not clean. OK if only overnighting, but not for short/long term stay while on vacation. Free admission to hot springs while in RV slot. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We pulled in to this location due to bad weather and a review that didn't sound too bad; however, just the appearance of the motel should have been a clue that this was not going to be a quality experience. For $29 you get a tight pull through between antique 30 amp power pedestals, with your tow in a grass/dirt lot and most of the coach hanging into the parking lot. Only the cable TV kept the rating lower. Seedy looking permanent units, noise from the highway, and big rigs using the space behind all night contributed to a restless night. A good $12 stop, but for $29 it's a ripoff. We'll drive through the area in a blizzard next time rather than stop here. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a very convenient park for overnighting. It's literally right off the freeway, easy to pull in, pay, put the jacks down and hook up, and go the next morning. No shade to speak of, but all the hook ups work. It feels exposed, being basically part of the econolodge parking lot, but we felt safe, and it was really quiet. You get use of the laundry and pool at the motel, which was a bonus. Cable is very good with 90+ channels. Decent Wi-Fi signal from inside my trailer all the way across the motel parking lot. If you're either doing an over night stay, or if you'll be out of the camper a lot, this would be a decent option. The others in this area are a bit more spendy, and farther away. Worked perfectly for me. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
