Joseph H. Stewart State Recreation Area
Description - Joseph Stewart and its campground overlook Lost Creek Reservoir, with wildlife, large conifer trees and mountains surrounding the park.

Attractions - Take a hike or bike ride on our 8-mile trail system, through the forest with year-round streams and ample wildlife viewing. Take a swim in the cool mountain water. Rent a boat from the marina 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. Lost Creek Reservoir is stocked with trout and is accessible year-round.

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

The campground offers a volleyball area, hot showers, flush toilets and an RV dump station. Day-use facilities include a picnic area, kitchen shelters with gas stoves, and a horseshoe pit.

Recreation - Joseph Stewart is a good choice for the camping, picnicking, fishing, boating and water skiing. In addition, the park offers group camping, biking, hiking and swimming.

Climate - Climate in this region varies with elevation and from east to west. The western portions of this region experience higher precipitation and more moderate temperatures year-round. The eastern end of this region is much more arid, with warmer summer temperatures and colder winter temperatures.
