Artisan foods are the perfect complement to the region’s wines and include prized cheeses from Rogue Creamery, luscious Lillie Belle chocolates, as well as Harry and David’s world-famous Moose Munch.
Medford is also the gateway to Crater Lake National Park, the deepest lake in North America, boasting pristine blue water and sheer surrounding cliffs, almost two thousand feet high. Over 200 days of sunshine abound among breathtaking terrain, including the wild Rogue River, the Natural Bridge Loop – a two mile hike over ancient lava tubes, gorgeous waterfalls and lush greenery. Outdoor enthusiasts can take in the sights while jetboating or rafting, hiking, biking, ziplining, golfing, fishing and more.
