Fish Lake and Lake of the Woods are about 40 minutes from Eagle Point on Hwy. 140 (toward Klamath Falls.) They each have a restaurant, cabins, excellent fishing and camping. Water skiing and sailing is done at Lake of the Woods, and, of course, fishing is also very popular. Other area lakes include Willow Lake, outside of Butte Falls and Lost Creek Lake. Hiking is very popular at both of these sites in addition to fishing. At Lost Creek, water skiing is popular. To the south end of the Rogue Valley, is Emigrant Lake and Howard Prairie.
Wild turkeys are rather abundant in the Upper Rogue and can be seen until hunting season. It is wise to watch out for deer, they can readily be seen along the river, crossing Highway 62 and even occasionally in the various Upper Rogue communities. Hunting quail, pheasant and ducks is also readily done during the appropriate season.

The Camp White Military Museum is the memorialization of a place—Camp White—and a people—our Southern Oregon Veterans. These Veterans gave years of their lives to serve their country in the armed forces. Now, a select few continue to serve by volunteering their time to ensure that the great history of our Southern Oregon Veterans is acknowledged and lives on. So, come down to the Camp White Military Museum, a place where you can learn about the great men and women who dedicated their time to serve us. And, while you’re here, make sure you take the time to meet the volunteers who continue to serve by keeping memory alive.
The Eagle Point National Cemetery covers 43 acres and overlooks the community. It opened in 1952. Today there are 13,000 interments. The facility is open from sunrise to sunset.

At the Cemetery you can see: a carillon donated by the American Veterans as part of their international living-memorial program, a memorial dedicated to All Unknown Veterans, and a memorial dedicated to all 1st Marine Divisions of all Wars.
Camp White, a U.S. Army Cantonment, was built on the Agate Desert, near Medford, Oregon, at the start of World War II. First the home of the 91st “Fir Tree” Division under Major General Charles Gerhardt, Camp White trained the 96th Division as well as engineering, medical, and artillery units between 1942 and 1945. Today, Camp White is part of the US Department of Veteran’s Affairs: Southern Oregon Rehabilitation Center & Clinics, and is the nation’s only freestanding residential rehabilitation center. Tours of the Camp White Military Museum are available.
Patriotism plays a significant role in Eagle Point with the former Camp White (the remainder portion now houses the Southern Oregon Rehabilitation Center and Clinic) just south of the city and the Eagle Point National Cemetery on the hillside overlooking the community. As the Eagle Point & Upper Rogue Chamber of Commerce was organized, one of its first projects became the Avenue of the Flags. Today flags adorn the main entrance into the community from Highway 62 and Linn Road down Main Street across the Main St. Bridge. Plans call for the flags to continue to the Eagle Point National Cemetery by late spring. This venture gained national attention and the concept has been adopted by many cities. Each flag was a casket flag donated to Avenue of the Flags by family members. In 2003, a Wall of Patriotism was dedicated in the Ashpole Center (adjacent to city hall). There one will find the names of each veteran in whose memory a casket flag was donated, as well as a list of the donors. The display is surrounded by a flag from each branch of the military service. The Avenue of the Flags display is put in place for each patriotic holiday.

The original portion of the Eagle Point Museum was the old Long Mountain School. The school was built in 1925. When it was no longer used as a school, it was moved to school district property in Eagle Point and in 1977 moved across the Main St. Bridge to its present location where it became the museum. Since then it has seen two additions and now houses the second largest collection in Jackson County. Most of the collection is from Eagle Point area families. It is located on Royal Ave., near the covered bridge.
The Lost Creek Bridge, at 39 feet, is the shortest of all Oregon covered bridges. Many Jackson County residents, including Shirley Stone, daughter of pioneer John Walch, claim the Lost Creek Bridge to have been built as early as 1878-1881. If authenticated, this would make it Oregon’s oldest standing covered bridge. Johnny Miller, the builder of the Lost Creek Bridge, also roofed the nearby span at Lake Creek in the 1880s, thus lending credence to a sign nailed on the bridge: LOST CREEK BRIDGE, BUILT ABOUT 1881. The span may have been partially or totally rebuilt in 1919, hence the official construction date in that year.
The Antelope Covered Bridge was built in 1922. Another similar bridge was torn down by the county. Area residents wanted this one preserved and following many fundraisers and endless hours of volunteering, and it was moved 12 miles down two state highways to downtown Eagle Point in 1987. It straddles Little Butte Creek and provides a safe passage over the creek for school children. It is at the corner of Main and Royal. Its entrance is marked with large stones and on each stone is a plaque honoring those who served in various wars.
Once a sanctuary for Takelma Indians, today these cliff-edged mesas in the Upper Rogue are a haven for hikers and endangered wildflowers. Views from the cliffs extend across the Rogue River to the Siskiyous and the Cascades. Visit in spring to catch the best flower displays and to avoid summer’s merciless heat.
Those who fish the Rogue River know they have experienced an opportunity they won’t soon forget. Chinook, coho (silver salmon), summer and winter steelhead and trout are found in the Rogue. Depending upon the season, it is not beyond the realm of possibility to catch a salmon upwards of 65 pounds. Best opportunity is from the hatchery at Lost Creek to Gold Hill. Bank fishing is particularly good in the area around Trail and Casey State Park. Driftboats and guides can be used for much of the remainder of the Upper Rogue spring fishing. From the end of July through August, it is time to fish for summer steelhead. Wild fish cannot be kept. Only those with fins clipped, which indicate they are hatchery fish, can be kept. The Rogue River Guides Association lists 60 or so members and associate members. Businesses in Shady Cove and Trail can provide information on fishing, guides, and rafting.
