Every season, every day, Ashland has something for everyone!
Your families’ experience is important and there are many fun activities for children in and around Ashland. From family attractions, parks and lodging with pools to other fun day trip ideas, we invite you to bring the family and be our guest. The Ashland Parks & Recreation Department that oversees the parks also has great seasonal programs to get involved in. From Emigrant Lake Water Park to pizza, ice cream to a picnic and a hands on museum, Ashland invites you and your family for your next adventure!
The following information can help you plan that memorable trip with your kids or grandkids. We invite you to come for a week and stay forever.
Experience the deepest fresh water lake in North America, Oregon’s only national park, Crater Lake National Park or do some boating, rafting, swimming or splashing at a beautiful mountain lake.
