Spray

Show more info about Spray

Small in size but big on scenery, Spray is smack in the middle of John Day Fossil Beds country. The postage stamp-size burg was named for the first postmaster, John Fremont Spray. Drive along the Journey Through Time Scenic Byway, or take a two-wheeled tour on the Painted Hills Scenic Bikeway. Outdoor enthusiasts love the tranquility of the John Day River for rafting, hiking and fishing, while others giddyup at the annual rodeo.

Eastern Oregon

Spray is located in Eastern Oregon, where miles of scenic byways, alpine wilderness, working cattle ranches and basalt canyons are still the place for explorers to make their mark.

Nearby cities are: Monument, Dayville, Mitchell, and Fossil.
