    Welcome to Jackson Wellsprings, a unique camping spot near Ashland, Oregon. This place is a bit of a hidden gem, offering a mix of tent, RV, cabin, glamping, and yurt accommodations. If you're into soaking in hot springs, you're in for a treat. The hot soaking pool, fed from natural hot springs, reaches a toasty 120 degrees, while the regular pool sits at a refreshing 75 degrees. Perfect for unwinding after a long day.

    The campground has a laid-back vibe, with amenities like restrooms, showers, and even private bathhouses you can rent. There's also a small market on-site where you can grab some snacks and locally made items. For those car camping, be prepared for a gravel parking lot with no shade, but the sense of safety and community makes up for it.

    One of the standout features here is the walking trails that wind through the property, including a massive garden filled with veggies and flowers. It's a great spot to stretch your legs and take in some nature. Plus, pets are allowed, so feel free to bring your furry friends along.

    Ashland itself is known for its Shakespeare Festival and artsy, free-spirited atmosphere. It's a liberal, artsy town that's worth exploring if you have the time. Whether you're here for the hot springs, the friendly community, or just a peaceful place to camp, Jackson Wellsprings has something to offer. Enjoy your stay!

    Gold Hill, Oregon

    Medford-Gold Hill KOA, nestled near Central Point, Oregon, is a solid spot for those looking to camp with some conveniences. This place is open all year, so you can plan your trip whenever it suits you. It's got a bit of everything: tent sites, RV spots, cabins, and even some glamping options if you're feeling fancy.

    One thing folks often mention is the tight spacing of the sites, which is pretty typical for KOAs. If you've got a big rig, you might find it a bit snug, but there are pull-thru sites available. Just be prepared for a bit of a squeeze. On the plus side, the campground is clean and well-managed. The facilities, including the showers and bathrooms, are kept in good shape, though some visitors think the bathrooms could use a bit of an update.

    For those traveling with pets, you'll appreciate the green space available for dog walks. And if you're a responsible pet owner, you won't get hassled for letting your dog off-leash. There's also a laundry room on-site, which is handy, though a bit pricey.

    Families will find some entertainment here too. There's a pool table and a Pac-Man machine that kids and adults alike can enjoy. Plus, there's a small play area for the little ones and a nice pool to cool off in during the warmer months.

    The campground's location is convenient, right off the freeway, making it an easy stopover if you're traveling along I-5. There's a camp store for any essentials you might need, and the staff are friendly and accommodating.

    Overall, Medford-Gold Hill KOA is a decent spot for a night or two, especially if you're passing through. It's got the basics covered and a few extras to make your stay comfortable.

    Overview

    Jackson Campground is located on the beautiful Applegate River in the Applegate Valley near Medford, Grants Pass and historic Jacksonville.

    Recreation

    Jackson Campground sits on the shores of the Applegate River, a popular recreation site located north of the Red Buttes Wilderness Area. Visitors enjoy swimming, cycling, boating, canoeing, fishing and hiking the various trails near the river. Nearby is the inactive Bigfoot trap, found at the beginning of the trail, built in 1974 by the North American Wildlife Research Team. The trap was inspired by a miner who lived near the Applegate River who claimed to have found 18-inch-long, human-like tracks in his garden. The organization operated the trap, keeping it baited with carcasses for six years, but caught only bears. Currently the Forest Service keeps an eye on the trap, but otherwise does not maintain it

    Natural Features

    The unique character of the landscapes comprising the area has led to the designation of over 340,000 acres of the forest as wilderness, and over 200 miles of streams as National Wild and Scenic Rivers. The forest itself is composed of two distinct geological provinces, the Cascade Range and the Siskiyou Mountains. The Cascade Range is dominated by snow-c apped volcanic peaks like the 9,495-foot Mt. McLoughlin, located within the Sky Lakes Wilderness. The Siskiyou area embodies the most complex and treasured plant communities in the Pacific Northwest. World-class wild rivers, biological diversity, remarkable fisheries and complex watersheds all define the Siskiyou. Diverse landscapes provide habitat for a wide range of wildlife, from spotted owls and bull elk to salamanders and Sandhill cranes.

    Nearby Attractions

    Stop by historic Jacksonville while in the area or enjoy special events like the Britt Festival. The nearby Rogue River National Recreation Trail, stretching 40 miles between Grave Creek and Big Bend, offers some of southwestern Oregon's most scenic landscapes and rewarding hiking experiences. This hiking-only trail follows the north bank of the Rogue River as it winds its way toward the Pacific Ocean. Visitors enjoy Crater Lake National Park and learning about its unique natural and cultural history. At 1,943 feet deep, Crater Lake is the deepest lake in the United States and one of the ten deepest lakes in the world.
