It’s divided into numerous wilderness areas and is renowned for its stands of old-growth forest comprised of Douglas fir and Port Orford cedar. Follow one of the hiking trails that wind through the scenically stunning Rogue River National Recreation Trail or cycle along the Wild Rivers Coast Scenic Bikeway, then explore the wildflower-filled meadows and crystal clear streams in the Glendale-Powers Bicycle Recreation Area.
Medford campers are also just a short drive from the Cascade-Siskiyou National Monument, which protects 86,774 acres of land where the Cascade and Siskiyou mountains meet. The area is renowned for its botanical diversity, including numerous endemic species that include Green’s mariposa lily and the endangered Gentner’s fritillary.

Just over an hour’s drive from Medford / Gold Hill KOA will take you to Crater Lake, which was formed by the now-collapsed volcano of Mount Mazama. It’s the deepest lake in the United States and also considered one of the most beautiful thanks to its intense blue color. Photograph the cinder cone of Wizard Island and the rock formation known as the Phantom Ship that rise in the middle of the lake, then take time to explore the surrounding old-growth forests that provide a habitat for mountain lions, elk, and black bears.
