In the southernmost reaches of Oregon lies Valley of the Rogue State Park, which is easily accessible when you book an RV in Jackson County. This state park is less than 100 miles from the shores of the Pacific Ocean, and was founded in the early 1960s after approximately 270 acres of land was purchased from private owners. The park draws over 100,000 annual overnight visitors, on average, with day use attendees averaging over 1.5 million per year.
RV camping at state parks is a great way to see many diverse places, and since the Valley of the Rogue State Park is conveniently located along Interstate 5, you’ll be able to travel quickly to many nearby destinations. The nearest town, Grants Pass, is only a few miles to the west, while larger cities like Roseburg and Medford will take you a bit longer to get to. Also in the area is the Rogue River-Siskiyou National Forest, which is a gorgeous place to visit while staying at the state park.
Oregon is quite well known for its outdoor adventure possibilities, and the Valley of the Rogue State Park definitely lives up to the state’s hype. One of the main features of the park, the Rogue River, is a must explore when spending your time here camping with an RV. The park has three miles of shoreline along the river, and the waters are a relaxing way to spend the afternoon when the weather is hot. Tubing is a leisurely activity that outdoor lovers at the park often enjoy since a lazy float along three miles can easily take an hour or two when the water is calm.
The river is also a great place to fish, just be sure you arrange your fishing licenses ahead of time to avoid any fines or punishments. There are many nooks and crannies along the river bed that make for nice, relaxing fishing spots. Be sure to bring your tackle box and fishing poles when you plan on camping at Valley of the Rogue State Park, even when just using it as a pit stop on a greater trip.
This state park is longer than it is wide, and the trails that run through it offer a great way to stretch your legs and those of your four-legged friends so long as they are kept on a leash. The main trail is filled with interpretive signs that allow guests to take themselves on a self-guided tour, and over a mile of that trail travels directly along the river’s edge. Additionally, the trails in the park connect to a great trail system, so when you are RV camping at Valley of the Rogue State Park be sure to check out the Rogue River Greenway Trail during your stay.
There is only one campground at this state park, but it is home to over 90 RV sites that campers can choose from. Over 20 of these sites are pull-through with concrete pads, so when travelling with an over-sized rental RV be sure to call ahead to ensure a larger spot is available. All RV sites enjoy full hooks for water, in addition to both 30 and 50 amp electricity hookups. There is an on-site dumping station that runs on donations, and firewood can also be purchased at the campground.
The sites themselves offer decent privacy thanks to onsite trees, and campsite amenities like flushing toilets and hot showers help make the stay smoother and more enjoyable. There is also laundry machines available for guests to use during their stay, and there are also picnic shelters with grills and seating that are shared by all campers. Two of the campsites are completely ADA compliant and are reserved for those who need them, and these two campsites may be booked ahead of time by phone.
The area surrounding Valley of the Rogue State Park is a lush green landscape that has many mountains in the distance. Valley of the Rogue State Park camping will give you a chance to explore this part of Oregon, and the nearest town to your campsite will be Grants Pass, which is just to the east. This town is home to many restaurants, including a collection of authentic Mexican restaurants, breweries, sushi, pub style, pizza and sandwich places, and more. Grants Pass is also a great place to fill up on gas before heading further along Interstate 5 since there isn’t another large town until you hit Roseburg to the north.
Grants Pass is also home to the Schmidt House Museum & Library, which has collections and artifacts dating as far back as 1901. The interior of the house and library have been decorated using time period appropriate designs, and guided tours are offered during the weekdays to show guests throughout the property. The museum is fun for the whole family and includes many interactive exhibits and artifacts to keep everyone entertained.
For those who wish to know what life was like for generations past in the area, the Medford Railroad Park is a great destination to check out. This outdoor train museum is filled with plenty of information on local train lines, building techniques, and pictures of the past. There are also many full-size cars kept on the property that guests can explore, and the open-air model railroad is a fun way to learn about trains in general. There are also rides available on a mini train, which can accommodate both adults and children alike.
