Casey State Recreation Site is a day-use only state park located 29 miles northeast of Medford, Oregon off Oregon Route 62.[1] The parks offers picnic and boating facilities, as well as access to the Rogue River. It is also a popular salmon fishing spot.

He took people fishing also. Ethel Casey, Jim's wife, Sold art work she created and ran a restaurant at the Camp. A big attraction was Jerry the Bear that Jim had kept as a pet.
