Butte Falls is located north of Eagle Point along Hwy 60, then east on to Butte Falls Hwy.
According to Oregon Geographical Names, settlers in the Rogue River Valley in eastern Jackson County referred to Mount McLoughlin as Snowy Butte, and the two main streams draining to the northwest from that mountain were known as Big and Little Butte creeks. At the falls on Big Butte Creek a settlement sprang up that took its name from the natural feature.
Butte Falls is part of the Medford-Ashland, Oregon metro area.
