We have camped here multiple times and love it. The staff at the store and the boat marina are fantastic and go above and beyond. Camp sites are clean and camp hosts are friendly, showers are free and bathrooms always have been clean!

Friendly, helpful staff at the store/restaurant and marina. Clean and beautiful! No wi-fi reception, which forced my teens to "unplug" and unwind -- relaxing! Cool mountain breezes allowed an escape from the valley's hot weather. The Resort's ice cream cookie sandwiches were yummy.

Awesome place, very family friendly. Years past were rough because of the water levels of the lake, but this year should be great. It rains periodically, so always be prepared. We generally stop at Costco in Medford to load up on supplies before heading up...More

I'm sorry that I don't know if they rent kayaks at Howard Prairie. I believe they rent boats? Let me see if I can ask a local person who knows. Sorry couldn't answer your question.
