Dates Of Stay: April 1 – 6, 2016
Emigrant Lake is a 15-minute drive to downtown Ashland, but it feels like you’re out of the middle of nowhere. The lake is formed by a nearby dam, so the level of the lake changes. When I was there, it was nice and full. Each morning the rowing crew from the nearby college was out for practice. You can hear the calls of the Coxswain as the boats cut through the water.
Drive all the way to the end of the park to The Point RV Park. The layout of the park is genius, as all paved sites have a view of the water. On the lower level where I stayed, spot 19, directly on the banks of the lake, I had a full hook up, including sewer. That is almost unheard of at RV sites on bodies of water. My site came with a spacious concrete picnic table.
I did not use the restroom and shower facilities, but I heard they were in excellent condition and the showers were strong and hot.
Emigrant Lake isn’t just for camping. There is a boat launch, a waterpark open during the summer, nature trails, picnic areas, and even a place for paragliding.
I ended up staying two extra days at Emigrant lake. At $30 per night, it was a bargain. I will return there for sure.
Tammy’s Tip: Request Site 21 – A huge pull-through with the best view of the lake.
