state parks and forest service
campgrounds are located in the area and provide access to
fishing, boating, hiking and biking opportunities. Enjoy old
logging roads that have been converted to miles and miles of
off-highway vehicle trails. A swimming hole favored by locals,
"The Peninsula" has a small waterfall and places to swim and
wade. Sugar pines
and other tall
evergreens forma canopy above, while fragrant pine cones litter
the trails. In spring, before deciduous trees sprout their
leaves, the forest floor is a soft carpet of green moss with
small orchids poking through. Spring and fall bring mushrooms
that draw hunters from afar. Autumn offers a cascade of
brilliant colors and huckleberries for those who seek them out.
Prospect is a gateway to winter recreational activities. Miles
of cross country ski trails and 150 miles of well-groomed
snowmobile trails take you to unsurpassed winter vistas,
including Crater Lake. A great sledding hill is located nearby
at Union Creek Resort. Join us for all-season fun.
