Doe Point Campground is an organized campground located on a small rounded peninsula on the shore of Fish Lake in Oregon’s Rogue River National Forest, and has two loops containing 24 tent & RV campsites and a separate walk-in loop containing 5 tent-only campsites. All of the campsites at Doe Point Campground are shaded by a cover of conifers and are within walking distance of Fish Lake.

All of the campsites within Doe Point Campground are first-come/first-served, and reservations are not accepted. Each campsite has a picnic table and fire ring, and access to bathrooms, drinking water, and to several RV grey water disposal stations throughout the campground. Additionally, there is a boat ramp just outside the campground for launching both motorized and non-motorized boats into Fish Lake.

Doe Point Campground – Bottom Line

Doe Point Campground is a pretty nice National Forest campground; the campsites are fairly large, are decently private, have good shade, and lots of activities are nearby. All of these make Doe Point Campground a good spot for weekend family camping on the lake. A handful of the campsites at Doe Point back onto the lake and provide some great views of Fish Lake, and Brown Mountain, which is located directly across the lake and is lone of the three dormant volcanos that surround Doe Point Campground.

Doe Point also has a boat ramp onsite that provides access to Fish Lake for small boats (limited to 10mph), fishing, and other light watersports. Additionally, there are lots of hiking trails near the campground that vary in difficulty, the closest being Lakeshore Trail which starts in Doe Point Campground and makes its way over to the neighboring campground. Finally, the campground is abundant with wildlife that can be seen from the lake and the campsites.

While camping at Doe Point if you are in need of some creature comforts you can venture over to the neighboring Fish Lake Campground & Resort, which has a small restaurant and a camp store that sells firewood and other camping supplies.

Most of the campsites at Doe Point are pretty nice, but the best ones are those that back onto the lake, which include campsites 8, 9, 10, 11, 22, 23, and 30 (tent-only campsite). From these campsites you can see the lake and take your camp chairs onto to the lake shore, which is a fantastic place to stargaze at night.
