This park/campground area is perfect for a quick getaway or long term stay. Lots of trails, nice cabins/camping sites, and beautiful lake for swimming or boating. The lake was very low during our visit but our daughters still had a great time in the water.

Due to the lack of rain and snow this last winter, the lake has been so low that you could not launch your boat. There are still a lot of fish in the lake.

The campgrounds at Howard Prairie Lake are great. Most of them are level spots with plenty of privacy. They have a wonderful restaurant that serves the best fish and chips. The only down side is the water level of the lake has been low for the past couple of years but there is still plenty to do. Biking, Hiking, Fishing,... More

My favorite mountain lake around here. We rent a patio boat for the family and a couple of the kids' friends, stay out for 4-6 hours fishing and swimming. Got some big bass and trout last few years.

This is a beautiful lake when full, but recent droughts have left it a little low. There's a lovely campground, a cafe, boat docks, boat rentals. It's a fun place. Drive up the mountains to get there is half of the fun because of beautiful scenery Jane L.

A local sailing club (Rogue Yacht Club) hosts regattas on this lake, and they are excellent. These are not really large yachts, but smaller rigs. Sail on!

We camp or boat at Howard Prairie several times durng the summer. The campling experience is alwasy enjoyable, especially if you get a lakeside camp spot. Watching the Canadian Geese and the American Whte Pelicans that frequent the lake, is an experience not to miss. You will also see lots of Osprey and even Bald Eagles. My husband was amazed... More

We live in So. Or. but never camped on the south end of the Valley. Heard great reviews of Howard Prairie Lake Campground so decided to give it a go. Reserved a site online which was easy and nice but that was about the only thing I liked. The sites are either on a hillside with your neighbors right on... More
