​Prospect State Airport

Prospect (64S)


The Board of Aeronautics built Prospect State Airport in 1962 on donated land.  Located in northeastern Jackson County, the airport is accessed via State Route 62 (Crater Lake Highway) to the community of Prospect.

The area surrounding Prospect State Airport is primarily forest and recreation.  Lost Creek Lake, the Rogue River National Forest and River, and several State parks are all within a 10-mile radius of the airport.  The airport is also located on the primary access road to Crater Lake National Park.  Remotely located in the Cascades, Prospect State Airport is approximately 40 miles northeast of Medford-Jackson County Airport.  The airport plays a supportive role in the current system, providing access to the surrounding recreational areas. The airport is also sometimes used by aircraft trying to land at Medford-Jackson County Airport but are unable to do so due to dense fog; these aircraft include express small package carriers.  As such, Prospect State Airport is designated as a Level 4 airport.
