World class recreation awaits you!

Be kind to our visiting wildlife.


For much of the past century the rich and famous, the sportsmen, filmmakers and artists flocked to Southwest Oregon. They came for the abundant resources, the tranquility and the seclusion, and for the spectacular natural beauty. The same treasures still await you today. Southwest Oregon is still home to some of the finest natural resources and majestic natural beauty found anywhere. 

The ancient forests are carpeted with ferns and host a greater variety of wildlife than nearly anywhere else in North America. Black tail deer, Roosevelt elk, cougar, bobcats and black bear inhabit our forests. Eagles, hawks, falcon, ducks, geese, wild turkey and hundreds of other bird species are found here too. 

Playful otters and harbor seals are often seen seeking their share of the 40 to 50 pound salmon that fill the rivers, and on at least one occasion, an Orca whale was spotted a mile up the Rogue River. 

Many different gourmet mushrooms grow in the forests here, including porcini, morel, chanterelle, truffles, and a dozen more. Wild mushrooms and berries from the forest, salmon from the rivers and fresh crab from the sea are guaranteed to delight your palate. 

A wide range of dining is available in the area including Tu Tu Tun Lodge on the Rogue River, currently rated the 6th finest lodge/restaurant in North America. 

Ancient carvings in stone (Petroglyphs) found on the Rogue River and elsewhere attest to the 20,000 year history of Native Americans in the area. As testament to a more recent historical event, a small sign on Mt. Emily, outside of Brookings, marks the spot where Japanese bombs landed in WWII. 

Kayaking, canoeing, float trips and white water rafting are just as popular as fishing on the rivers. Jet boat rides are available from Gold Beach. Passengers ride in 1200 horsepower boats that skim across the surface and slide through the corners. Be prepared to get wet, see a lot of wildlife, and have a lot of fun. 

The Pacific coastline is rich in resources and stunningly beautiful. It hosts a healthy and abundant sport fish population. Windsurfing, kayaking, whale watching, beach combing and sunset walks on the beach or coastal trails are always popular activities. Craggy rocks, natural arches and sea stacks make ours one of the most picturesque and most photographed coastlines anywhere in North America. 

There is so much that awaits you here. Take your time and savor it all. It is truly "Life as it should be".
