Indian Mary Park

Indian Mary Park; Josephine County Parks Oregon
This Park is part of our Holy Rovers itinerary every September

Indian Mary Campground, our Winnebago class C motorhome This “park” is often considered the “jewel” of the Josephine County Park System in Southern Oregon.
This is a beautiful park and campground set along the Rogue River just past the famous Hellgate Canyon and a short drive (about 10 miles) down Merlin/Galice road from Interstate 5
The park can also be reached by following G Street in Grants Pass, which changes into Upper River Road at the west City limits; then to Azalea Road and turn right; follow Azalea to Merlin-Galice Rd. and turn left.

Indian Mary Park, Rogue River This is nice park to simply relax, or to even have an event as there is a nice pavilion (which often hosts wedding, parties, etc. and can accommodate 150 persons).
Of coarse fishing is also popular here either from shore or by drift boats. Salmon and Steelhead are the two most sought after fish here (in season).

Rafting is the other very popular activity here and on nearby spots of the Rogue River with many class 1 & 2 rapids in the immediate area, as well as class 3-5 further downstream (which require a guide and permit).
Indian Mary Park also has a disc golf course as well.
