The forested slopes and often snow-covered peaks of the Siskiyou Mountains are reflected in the clear blue waters of Applegate Lake, just 23 miles southwest of Medford in the Rogue River National Forest. In this scenic setting, the U.S. Forest Service operates hike-in campgrounds and lakeshore areas for picnicking, swimming and boating. The lake extends to the California border and a hiking trail follows the 18 mile shoreline. Motorcycles are permitted only on the trail leading to Stein Butte. Horses are permitted on the Stein Butte, Collings Mountain and Da-Ku-Be-Te-De trails.

Development at most of the recreation sites is minimal and most of the lakeshore has been maintained in a natural state. Another measure for preserving the rustic character of the lake is a 10 mph speed limit for all boats. Paved trails and other barrier-free facilities are provided at the day use areas.
