Joseph H. Stewart State Recreation Area

  General Advisory 05/09/18
Effective May 15th, the hours of operation at the entrance to Joseph Stewart State Park will be limited to daylight hours, dawn to dusk. Entrances to the Lost Creek Marina from Hwy 62 will be gated overnight and opened daily, as posted. Park Manager Nathan Seable noted that for years, park staff left the gate open for early and late users. Security issues involving theft and unauthorized use have prompted him to enforce a strict closure at dusk.

Picture yourself in a campsite overlooking Lost Creek Reservoir with wildlife, large conifer trees, and mountains surrounding you. Take a hike or bike ride on our 11-mile trail system, through the forest with year-round streams and wildlife viewing. Take a swim in the cool, mountain water; rent a boat from the marina (call (541) 560-3646 for information), and troll the 10-mile lake for trout and bass ... an angler's dream. Or bring your own boat and water skis and spend a few days in the sun!

The park is about 40 miles from Crater Lake National Park, and makes an excellent jumping-off point for an exploration of Southern Oregon.
