A small taste
of activities available
near Azalea Grove Getaway

Southern Oregon is a mecca for outdoor enthusiasts

There’s lots to do nearby! Still, some activities are seasonal depending on weather, water flows, snow cover and fire hazard.

Please check seasonal fire restrictions from the Douglas Fire Protection Association. 

Be Prepared

It doesn’t take long to get outside cell phone and fuel range. The mountains are generally steep, and cell coverage can be very spotty. Fuel stops can be spread out, so fill up when you can.
