What a hidden jewel! Howard Prairie is not located on Riverside Ave. in Medford. It is on "Hyatt Prairie Road" which is just off Dead Indian Memorial Road out of Ashland. I drove over Sunday to visit but took Hwy. 140 to 37 through the "Rogue Wilderness" which was a little gnarly. Having never been before, I was STUNNED at the beauty of this large, pristine lake. Many people come to fish for trout and bass. Others come for boating, jet skiing and canoeing. Still others come to hike and bike in the mountains. Some just come to kick back & chill. This is a very well maintained campground/resort with all the amenities you could ask for. The store at the marina sells just about anything you may have forgotten, smokes, snacks, food (gotta have those smores around the campfire) and sundries. The restaurant is absolutely lovely and the food delicious and reasonably priced. I enjoyed a creamy pasta, mushroom & veggie dish that was perfectly done, melt in your mouth divinity. The marina blew my mind ... there were yachts and sail boats in addiiton to speed boars moored! There is a regatta each year and this place is so mellow that many, many people leave their boats, fifth wheels and/or camp trailers here for the "season". Yep, you can store your goods here during the week for just a couple bucks, head up Thursday or Friday after work and rent your campsite for the weekend. Week after week, month after month people do this until they close at the end of October. Just a little ways off the beaten path, I highly recommend Howard Prairie Lake & Resort for a nice get away.

Not a resort is a campground that has not been kept up has some old bathrooms and showers and some new bathrooms and showers that are so over used can not be kept clean. Fire pits were full of trash, cans and bottles. electric was strange wired in trees and did not seem to work well (ie) brown outs, sites on hills and were dirt and gravel very un level. resturant was terribly over priced and food not so good. workers were grumpy, had park rules that were not addressed or enforced. had like over 200 sites some tents sites some RV sites, I would not recommend or go back.
