The free camping day coincides with a free fishing day offered Saturday through the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife.

The camping and fishing are free Saturday at six Jackson County parks campgrounds.

Rogue Elk; Willow Point, Grizzly, Lily Glen and Klum Landing at Howard Prairie Recreational Area; and the Oak Slope tent area at Emigrant Lake will offer free camping Saturday night as part of a county parks promotion.

Spaces are available only on a first-come, first-served basis. Camping at Howard Prairie Resort, Willow Lake, Cantrall-Buckley Park and The Point RV Park are not part of the free day.
