We are camping near Ashland for four days in June because we are viewing a number of plays. There is one day where we have time to tour from early morning to ~7pm. Since we know Crater Lake pretty well, I am looking for another fun outing for myself and my 12 year old son. The Butte Creek Mill looked interesting, especially since we are home-schoolers and like to mix a little learning in with our vacation. I am a DIY person so anything with crafts-people and artisans is wonderful.
(Sorry for the big build-up - finally, here is my question!)
If you had one day to do something fun outside of Ashland - what would it be? Would the Butte Creek Mill + Eagle Point be enough? My son is not much of a hiker unless his friends are along but a historic or hands-on tour would be enjoyable (e.g. six years ago we enjoyed watching the glass blowing at the Gatherings Studio).
Thank you for taking the time to offer us advice!
