OVERVIEW Aspen Point, located on the banks of scenic Lake of the Woods, is a single-loop campground that offers visitors opportunities to experience both the serene and wild aspects of south central Oregon.

RECREATION Aspen Point Campground is a wonderful location for hiking, fishing, hunting, horseback riding and biking in summer and early fall. In the winter months, visitors can take advantage of skiing, snowshoeing, and snowmobiling.

The campground is equipped with picnic tables, campfire rings, drinking water and flush toilets, along with a boat ramp and beach. A nearby resort offers visitors basic amenities, lodging, and dining. NATURAL FEATURES Fremont National Forest is hemmed in by towering snow-capped peaks, volcanic landscapes and wide-open sage basins. The nearby Sky Lakes Wilderness, designated by Congress in 1984, is a land of lakes, rocky ridges and timbered slopes. It is approximately 6 miles wide and 27 miles long, with elevations ranging from 3,800 feet in the canyon of the Middle Fork of the Rogue River to a lofty 9,495 feet at the top of Mount McLoughlin. More than 200 pools of water, from mere ponds to lakes of 30 to 40 acres, dot the landscape. Large mammals, such as mule deer, Rocky Mountain elk, and pronghorn antelope, find homes in the the forests, while several varieties of trout inhabit lakes and streams. In the spring and fall, migrating geese, ducks and swans frame the Oregon sky. Black bears, mountain lions, and bobcats, also find homes in the forest. NEARBY ATTRACTIONS The Crater Lake National Park is a popular attraction, where visitors can learn 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. Visitors also enjoy the 172 miles of diverse river and mountain landscapes along the Rogue-Umpqua National Scenic Byway. The scenic drive travels from rolling oak-covered hills and towering coniferous forests to roaring white water rapids and incised intercanyon lava flows. The highway travels alongside the Upper Rogue and North Umpqua Wild and Scenic Rivers that contain world-class fisheries.
