Located just ten minutes from the Stratford Inn, Emigrant Lake is one of Ashland Oregonâ€™s hidden jewels. Emigrant Lake is the perfect spot to relax, take a dip, and find some relief from the hot summer sun. For swimming and sun bathing, there is an area equipped with a dock as well as a small beach. If fishing is more your style, there are plenty of quiet areas around the lake to cast your rod for bass, crappie and trout. In addition to fishing and swimming, boating, kayaking, canoeing, and jet skiing are all common at the lake. Combining all of these activities with the beautiful scenic views, Emigrant Lake is a home run all summer long.
In addition to the activities highlighted above, Emigrant Lake also provides a camping and recreational area. This area is available for day and/or overnight use. The highlight of the recreation area is the 280-foot twin flume water slide. The recreation area also provides a play ground, as well as multiple picnic areas that are open to the public. If you are planning a trip to Ashland Oregon, Emigrant Lake is a must see landmark that has something for everyone.
