These opportunities, combined with its closeness to many of Oregon's towns, create the perfect place to take an RV rental. Access to the woods and lake with a rental RV is made even easier with Interstate 5 joining the Applegate Road.

Getting Outdoors

For those who seek to find the best fishing spots on their camp trips, look no further. The keen anglers among you will be pleased to hear that Applegate Lake is somewhat of a fisherman's paradise. The lake is home to a wide range of fish species, each with its very own sporting characteristics. Applegate Lake includes many cold-water species such as rainbow trout, steelhead trout, chinook salmon, and coho salmon. Alongside these, there is also an abundance of warm-water species such as largemouth bass, bluegill, black crappie, and sunfish. Whether Applegate Lake campers choose to fish from the 18 miles of shoreline or a boat out on the water, they will rarely be unsuccessful.

With nearly a thousand acres of lake to explore, boating is definitely the best way to do this, and will also enable campers to get the most out of their trip here. Applegate Lake has two boat ramps that are open to the public all year round, making access to the water easy. For those motorhome camping without their own boats head to the ‘Hart-Tish Park,' where campers are able to rent a verity of water-going vessels to enjoy out on the lake. The more adventurous campers among you will enjoy their selection of solo and tandem kayaks, perfect for taking out to the water together and exploring the many coves and shores of Applegate Lake.

The one thing that brings campers to Applegate Lake among anything else is its location directly within the Rogue River-Siskiyou National Forest. This ancient ‘old-growth’ forest is some of the most pristine woodlands in all of North America, and offers those with a love of hiking and nature walks a plethora of trails. The moderate ‘Clash Trail’ offers seasoned hikers a chance to walk from the shores of the lake through the forest, and back again, this loop offers great views of the lake and local wildlife. For those who are only beginner hikers, the ‘Stein Butte Trail’ offers a simpler route on the southern side of the lake.

Camping at Applegate Lake

For those RV camping at Applegate Lake, there is a number of choices, and this all depends on the camper's preferences. Campsites such as ‘Tipsu Tyee,' ‘Harr Point,' and ‘Hart-Tish Park’ offer great locations on the shores of Applegate Lake, yet only offer dry-camping with occasional facilities such as a toilet block.

Those willing to drive a little further south from the shores of the lake will arrive at Mid River RV Park. This park offers full hookups, and these include 20, 30 amp electric, water, and sewer hookups. On-site facilities include a dump station, a launderette, flushing toilets, and a shower block. WiFi is also provided for today’s modern campers. Pets are more than welcome a Mid River RV Park but must be kept on a leash at all times.

Exploring The Area

A few miles drive north of Applegate Lake is the city of Medford, Oregon, a perfect destination for escaping the lakeside activities and enjoying a day-trip in town. Campers with young children should take a visit to Medford's ‘Kid Time Children’s Museum.'

One such installation is the Art Room, a room where the children are free to express their artistic sides through painting and crafting. This is a perfect family fun day out in Medford that both parents and children can enjoy.

Head to the local town of Ashland, a few miles south of Medford, and experience an afternoon at ‘Gathering Glass Studio,' Here, visitors will be treated to a detailed demonstration of the wonders of glass blowing.

After viewing the demonstration, take part in a class and discover your new hobby of glass-blowing and crafting. Or take a visit to their on-site shop to purchase finely crafted glassware to take home as your very own.

Those with a love of animals should take a visit to the ‘Wildlife Images Rehabilitation Education Center’ in the city of Grants Pass. This non-profit center has been open since 1981 and strives to care for animals that have been rescued from captivity or injury. Take a tour and view a great assortment of birds, smaller mammals, reptiles, and large mammals such as cougars, bears, and wolves. These tours provide a unique, up-close encounter with wildlife that is not seen every day. This is the perfect day out for the whole family, offering a unique insight into Oregon and American wildlife.
