Eagle Point is situated north of Medford
, between Shady Cove
and White City
. Located at the Hwy 62 and Hwy 140 junction along the banks of Little Butte Cr., near the Rogue River National Forest
Named by pioneer John Mathers for the many eagles that nested in the bluffs overlooking the town. Originally, the Takelma (Rogue) Indians hunted the land and fished the crystal clear streams. Settlers arrived as early as 1853 to file Donation Land Claims on Little Butte. The community has been in existence since that time.
Eagle Point is bordered on the west by the mighty Rogue River and the spectacular ancient Table Rocks. To the east, the quiet meadowland of Lake Creek offers her existence. Northeast (15 minute drive), lays Butte Falls. This town nestles beneath majestic Mt. McLaughlin and offers dense forests and recreational lakes. Due north, following the "Rogue-Umpqua Scenic Byway," lies one of the seven wonders of the world, Crater Lake.
Eagle Point is part of the Medford-Ashland, Oregon metro area.
